Math::NumSeq::PlanePathN -- sequence of N values from PlanePath module
use Math::NumSeq::PlanePathN; my $seq = Math::NumSeq::PlanePathN->new (planepath => 'SquareSpiral', line_type => 'X_axis'); my ($i, $value) = $seq->next;
This module presents N values from a Math::PlanePath
as a sequence. The default is the X axis, or the line_type
parameter (a string) can choose among
"X_axis" X axis "Y_axis" Y axis "X_neg" X negative axis "Y_neg" Y negative axis "Diagonal" leading diagonal X=i, Y=i "Diagonal_NW" north-west diagonal X=-i, Y=i "Diagonal_SW" south-west diagonal X=-i, Y=-i "Diagonal_SE" south-east diagonal X=i, Y=-i "Depth_start" first N at depth=i "Depth_end" last N at depth=i
For example the SquareSpiral
X axis starts i=0 with values 1, 2, 11, 28, 53, 86, etc.
"X_neg", "Y_neg", "Diagonal_NW", etc, on paths which don't traverse negative X or Y have just a single value from X=0,Y=0.
The behaviour on paths which visit only some of the points on the respective axis is unspecified as yet, as is behaviour on paths with repeat points, such as the DragonCurve
.
See "FUNCTIONS" in Math::NumSeq for behaviour common to all sequence classes.
$seq = Math::NumSeq::PlanePathN->new (key=>value,...)
Create and return a new sequence object. The options are
planepath string, name of a PlanePath module planepath_object PlanePath object line_type string, as described above
planepath
can be either the module part such as "SquareSpiral" or a full class name "Math::PlanePath::SquareSpiral".
$value = $seq->ith($i)
Return the N value at $i
in the PlanePath. $i
gives a position on the respective line_type
, so the X,Y to lookup a $value=N
is
X,Y line_type ----- --------- $i, 0 "X_axis" 0, $i "Y_axis" -$i, 0 "X_neg" 0, -$i "Y_neg" $i, $i "Diagonal" $i, -$i "Diagonal_NW" -$i, -$i "Diagonal_SW" $i, -$i "Diagonal_SE"
$bool = $seq->pred($value)
Return true if $value
occurs in the sequence.
This means $value
is an integer N which is on the respective line_type
, ie. that ($path->n_to_xy($value)
is on the line type.
