If you don't quite understand what you're looking at (output of deparse, perl syntax), then ppi_dumper can help you look at the right part of the manual, an example
$ ppi_dumper 2 PPI::Document PPI::Statement::Include PPI::Token::Word 'use' PPI::Token::Whitespace ' ' PPI::Token::Word 'constant' PPI::Token::Whitespace ' ' PPI::Token::Word 'X' PPI::Token::Whitespace ' ' PPI::Token::Operator '=>' PPI::Token::Whitespace ' ' PPI::Token::Number '1' PPI::Token::Operator '/' PPI::Token::Number '3' PPI::Token::Structure ';' PPI::Token::Whitespace '\n' PPI::Token::Whitespace '\n'

So PPI::Token::Operator tells you "=>" is an operator

If you read perl/"perltoc" then you'll know that operators are documented in perlop

App::PPI::Dumper / ppi_dumper
