  Description     : utility to extract a name from a PPI Document

PPIx::DocumentName contains a few utilities for extracting a "name" out of an
arbitrary Perl file.

Typically, this is the module name, in the form:

 package Foo

However, it also supports extraction of an override statement in the form:

 # PODNAME: OverrideName::Goes::Here

which may be more applicable for documents that lack a package statement, or
the package statement may be "wrong", but they still need the document parsed
under the guise of having a name (for purposes such as POD).

The package will be maintained under the umbrella of the Debian Perl Group.

Generated with the help of dpt-gen-itp(1) from pkg-perl-tools.
