B::Terse - Walk Perl syntax tree, printing terse info about ops
perl -MO=Terse[,OPTIONS] foo.pl
This version of B::Terse is really just a wrapper that calls B::Concise with the -terse option. It is provided for compa- tibility with old scripts (and habits) but using B::Concise directly is now recommended instead. For compatibility with the old B::Terse, this module also adds a method named "terse" to B::OP and B::SV objects. The B::SV method is largely compatible with the old one, though authors of new software might be advised to choose a more user-friendly output format. The B::OP "terse" method, how- ever, doesn't work well. Since B::Terse was first written, much more information in OPs has migrated to the scratchpad datastructure, but the "terse" interface doesn't have any way of getting to the correct pad. As a kludge, the new ver- sion will always use the pad for the main program, but for OPs in subroutines this will give the wrong answer or crash.
The original version of B::Terse was written by Malcolm Beattie, <firstname.lastname@example.org>. This wrapper was written by Stephen McCamant, <smcc@MIT.EDU>. perl v5.8.8 2005-02-05 1
