       Pod::Simple::PullParserStartToken -- start-tokens from


       (See Pod::Simple::PullParser)


       When you do $parser->get_token on a Pod::Simple::PullParser object, you
       might get an object of this class.

       This is a subclass of Pod::Simple::PullParserToken and inherits all its
       methods, and adds these methods:

           This returns the tagname for this start-token object.  For example,
           parsing a "=head1 ..." line will give you a start-token with the
           tagname of "head1", token(s) for its content, and then an end-token
           with the tagname of "head1".

           This changes the tagname for this start-token object.  You probably
           won't need to do this.

           A shortcut for $token->tagname(...)

       $token->is_tag(somestring) or $token->is_tagname(somestring)
           These are shortcuts for "$token->tag() eq somestring"

           This returns the value of the attrname attribute for this start-
           token object, or undef.

           For example, parsing a L<Foo/"Bar"> link will produce a start-token
           with a "to" attribute with the value "Foo", a "type" attribute with
           the value "pod", and a "section" attribute with the value "Bar".

       $token->attr(attrname, newvalue)
           This sets the attrname attribute for this start-token object to
           newvalue.  You probably won't need to do this.

           This returns the hashref that is the attribute set for this start-
           token.  This is useful if (for example) you want to ask what all
           the attributes are -- you can just do "keys %{$token->attr_hash}"

       You're unlikely to ever need to construct an object of this class for
       yourself, but if you want to, call
       "Pod::Simple::PullParserStartToken->new( tagname, attrhash )"
