The goal of this module is to support the parsing of a small subset of Perl,
primarily in order to parse configuration files written in that subset of Perl.
As a side effect, this module can "undump" some data structures written by
Data::Dumper and Data::Dump - see the Data::Undump::PPI manpage.
The code is parsed via PPI, eliminating the need for Perl's `eval'.
This should provide a higher level of safety* compared to `eval'
(even when making use of a module like Safe).
* Disclaimer: A "higher level of safety" does not mean "perfect safety".

This module attempts to provide 100% compatibility with Perl over the subset of Perl it supports.
When a Perl feature is not supported by this module, it should complain
that the feature is not supported, instead of silently giving a wrong result.
If the output of a parse is different from how Perl would evaluate the same string,
then that is a bug in this module that should be fixed by correcting the output
or adding an error message that the particular feature is unsupported.
However, the result of using this module to parse something that is not valid Perl is undefined;
it may cause an error, or may fail in some other silent way.
This document describes version 0.02 of the module.
Although this module is well-tested and working, it still lacks some
features to make it *really* useful (see list below).
Contributions are welcome!
