The ability to read, and manipulate Perl (the language) programmatically other
than with perl (the application) was one that caused difficulty for a long
The cause of this problem was Perl's complex and dynamic grammar. Although
there is typically not a huge diversity in the grammar of most Perl code,
certain issues cause large problems when it comes to parsing.
The purpose of PPI is not to parse Perl Code, but to parse Perl Documents. By
treating the problem this way, we are able to parse a single file containing
Perl source code "isolated" from any other resources, such as libraries upon
which the code may depend, and without needing to run an instance of perl
alongside or inside the parser.
