Math::PlanePath::Columns -- points in fixed-height columns
use Math::PlanePath::Columns; my $path = Math::PlanePath::Columns->new; my ($x, $y) = $path->n_to_xy (123);
This path is columns of a given fixed height. For example height 5 would be
| 4 | 5 10 15 20 <--- height==5 3 | 4 9 14 19 2 | 3 8 13 18 1 | 2 7 12 17 ... Y=0 | 1 6 11 16 21 ---------------------- X=0 1 2 3 4 ...
The default is to number points starting N=1 as shown above. An optional n_start
can give a different start, with the same shape. For example to start at 0,
n_start => 0, height => 5 4 | 4 9 14 19 3 | 3 8 13 18 2 | 2 7 12 17 1 | 1 6 11 16 ... Y=0 | 0 5 10 15 20 ---------------------- X=0 1 2 3 4 ...
The only effect is to push the N values around by a constant amount. It might help match coordinates with something else zero-based.
See "FUNCTIONS" in Math::PlanePath for behaviour common to all path classes.
$path = Math::PlanePath::Columns->new (height => $h)
$path = Math::PlanePath::Columns->new (height => $h, n_start => $n)
Create and return a new path object. A height
parameter must be supplied.
($x,$y) = $path->n_to_xy ($n)
Return the X,Y coordinates of point number $n
in the path.
$n = $path->xy_to_n ($x,$y)
Return the point number for coordinates $x,$y
.
$x
and $y
are rounded to the nearest integers, which has the effect of treating each point in the path as a square of side 1, so a rectangle $x >= -0.5 and -0.5 <= y < height+0.5 is covered.
($n_lo, $n_hi) = $path->rect_to_n_range ($x1,$y1, $x2,$y2)
The returned range is exact, meaning $n_lo
and $n_hi
are the smallest and biggest in the rectangle.
