PPI, or Parse::Perl::Isolated as it stood for, is a parser for Perl source that builds a DOM-representation of your code.

With PPI now in place, development of applications that needs to understand and work with source code has been made much simplier than before. Some examples are CPANXR, Module::Checkstyle, Perl::Critic and Perl::MinimumVersion.

This talk will cover how to work with PPI and some of the modules that is using it.

The Nordic Perl Workshop is a joint venture between the
Copenhagen and the Stockholm Perl Mongers.
