Test2::Util::Stash - Utilities for manipulating stashes and globs.
This is a collection of utilities for manipulating and inspecting package stashes and globs.
Gets the package stash. This is the same as $stash = \%Package::Name::.
$stash = \%Package::Name::
Parse a symbol name, and return a hashref with info about the symbol.
$symbol can be a simple name, or a fully qualified symbol name. The sigil is optional, and & is assumed if none is provided. If $symbol is fully qualified, and $package is also provided, then the package of the symbol must match the $package.
Returns a structure like this:
name => 'BAZ',
sigil => '$',
type => 'SCALAR',
symbol => '&Foo::Bar::BAZ',
package => 'Foo::Bar',
Get a glob ref. Arguments are the same as for parse_symbol.
Get a reference to the symbol. Arguments are the same as for parse_symbol.
Completely remove the symbol from the package symbol table. Arguments are the same as for parse_symbol. A reference to the removed symbol is returned.
Convert a slot (like 'SCALAR') to a sigil (like '$').
Convert a sigil (like '$') to a slot (like 'SCALAR').
