NAME

B::Utils::OP - op related utility functions for perl

VERSION

version 0.27

SYNOPSIS

  use B::Utils::OP qw(parent_op return_op);
  sub foo {
    my $pop = parent_op(0);
    my $rop = return_op(0);
  }

DESCRIPTION

  sub foo {
    dothis(1);
    find_things();
    return;
  }
has the following optree:
 d  <1> leavesub[1 ref] K/REFC,1 ->(end)
 -     <@> lineseq KP ->d
 1        <;> nextstate(main -371 bah.pl:8) v/2 ->2
 5        <1> entersub[t2] vKS/TARG,3 ->6
 -           <1> ex-list K ->5
 2              <0> pushmark s ->3
 3              <$> const[IV 1] sM ->4
 -              <1> ex-rv2cv sK/3 ->-
 4                 <#> gv[*dothis] s ->5
 6        <;> nextstate(main -371 bah.pl:9) v/2 ->7
 9        <1> entersub[t4] vKS/TARG,3 ->a
 -           <1> ex-list K ->9
 7              <0> pushmark s ->8
 -              <1> ex-rv2cv sK/3 ->-
 8                 <#> gv[*find_things] s/EARLYCV ->9
 a        <;> nextstate(main -371 bah.pl:10) v/2 ->b
 c        <@> return K ->d
 b           <0> pushmark s ->c
The "find_things" in "foo" is called in the "entersub" in #9. If you call "parent_op" function with level 0, you get the "nextstate" op that is before the entersub, which is #6. And "return_op" gives you the next op that the caller is returning to, in this case, the "nextstate" in #a.

EXPORTED PERL FUNCTIONS

parent_op($lv)
In runtime, returns the B::OP object whose next is the "entersub" of the current context up level $lv
return_op($lv)
In runtime, returns the B::OP object that the current context is returning to at level $lv

B::CV METHODS

$cv->NEW_with_start($root, $start)
Clone the $cv but with different $root and $start
