in reply to regexp for finding all function calls

I'm still working on this problem, and have decided to try the perl PPI.

I'm a little stuck on how to find all calls to Mod::func within PPI. I've successfully read in the document, and am calling the PPI::Node->find method.$class_|_\&wanted

My first question is how to construct the anonymous subroutine to find all PPI::Statements that match Mod::func.

A second question is if it is possible to extract the line number of the statement from PPI. Otherwise I may also use B::Xref and hope that the Mod::func calls that it finds matches the ones returned by PPI.

Update: here's the code I'm working on right now, but the 'and' condition in the anonymous sub is returning false on everything. Hopefully the intent is clear though
# find all statements that have a PPI::Token::Word with "Mod::func" my $res = $Doc->find ( sub { $_[1]->isa('PPI::Statement') and $_[1]->contains('PPI::Token::Word') } );
