=head1 NAME

Mail::AuthenticationResults::Token - Base class for modelling AuthenticationResults Header parts

=head1 VERSION

version 2.20210915

=head1 DESCRIPTION

Classes representing a tokenised Authentication Results Header, used in parsing

=head1 METHODS

=head2 new( $header, $args )

Return a new Token object parsed from the given $header string using $args

$args value depend on the subclass of Token used, possible types are

L<Mail::AuthenticationResults::Token::Assignment> an assignment operator
L<Mail::AuthenticationResults::Token::Comment> a comment
L<Mail::AuthenticationResults::Token::QuotedString> a quoted string
L<Mail::AuthenticationResults::Token::Separator> a separator
L<Mail::AuthenticationResults::Token::String> a string

=head2 new_from_value( $value )

Create a new token from the given value

=head2 value()

Return the value of the current Token instance.

=head2 remainder()

Return the remainder of the header string after parsing the current token out.

=head2 parse()

Run the parser on the current $header and set up value() and remainder().

=head2 is()

Return the type of token we are.
