"""Object-oriented interface to the parser module.

This module exports three classes which together provide an interface
to the parser module.  Together, the three classes represent two ways
to create parsed representations of Python source and the two starting
data types (source text and tuple representations).  Each class
provides interfaces which are identical other than the constructors.
The constructors are described in detail in the documentation for each
class and the remaining, shared portion of the interface is documented
below.  Briefly, the three classes provided are:

AST
    Defines the primary interface to the AST objects and supports creation
    from the tuple representation of the parse tree.

ExpressionAST
    Supports creation of expression constructs from source text.

SuiteAST
    Supports creation of statement suites from source text.

FileSuiteAST
    Convenience subclass of the `SuiteAST' class; loads source text of the
    suite from an external file.

Aside from the constructors, several methods are provided to allow
access to the various interpretations of the parse tree and to check
conditions of the construct represented by the parse tree.

ast()
    Returns the corresponding `parser.ASTType' object.

code()
    Returns the compiled code object.

filename()
    Returns the name of the associated source file, if known.

isExpression()
    Returns true value if parse tree represents an expression, or a false
    value otherwise.

isSuite()
    Returns true value if parse tree represents a suite of statements, or
    a false value otherwise.

text()
    Returns the source text, or None if not available.

tuple()
    Returns the tuple representing the parse tree.
