document object needs to remain in scope, this is the main reason the result object keeps it around, so if you want to use the
node to get the location information, make sure that you do not throw away the result object.
my $node = PPIx::DocumentName->extract( $ppi_document )->node; my $location = $node->location; # undef
my $result = PPIx::DocumentName->extract( $ppi_document ); my $node = $result->node; my $location = $node->location; # ok
