NAME

CQL::Token - class for token objects returned by CQL::Lexer

SYNOPSIS

    my $token = $lexer->nextToken();
    
    if ( $token->type() == CQL_WORD ) { 
        print "the token is a word with value=", $token->string(), "\n";
    }

DESCRIPTION

Ordinarily you won't really care about the tokens returned by the CQL::Lexer since the lexer is used behind the scenes by CQL::Parser.

METHODS

new()

    my $token = CQL::Token->new( '=' );

new()

getType()

Returns the token type which will be available as one of the constants that CQL::Token exports. See internals for a list of available constants.

getString()

Retruns the string equivalent of the token. Particularly useful when you only know it's a CQL_WORD.
