NAME ^

Math::PlanePath::CretanLabyrinth -- infinite Cretan labyrinth

SYNOPSIS ^

 use Math::PlanePath::CretanLabyrinth;
 my $path = Math::PlanePath::CretanLabyrinth->new;
 my ($x, $y) = $path->n_to_xy (123);

DESCRIPTION ^

This is a Cretan 7-circuit style labyrinth extended out infinitely.

The repeating part is the N=59 to N=189 style groups of 4 circuits going back and forward.

The gaps between the path are the labyrinth walls. Notice at N=2,59,33,186 the "+" joining of those walls which is characteristic of this style labyrinth.

See examples/cretan-walls.pl in the Math-PlanePath sources for a sample program carving out the path from a solid block to leave the walls.

FUNCTIONS ^

See "FUNCTIONS" in Math::PlanePath for behaviour common to all path classes.

$path = Math::PlanePath::CretanLabyrinth->new ()

Create and return a new path object.

($x,$y) = $path->n_to_xy ($n)

Return the X,Y coordinates of point number $n on the path. Points begin at 0 and if $n < 0 then the return is an empty list.

Fractional positions give an X,Y position along a straight line between the integer positions.

$n = $path->xy_to_n ($x,$y)

Return the point number for coordinates $x,$y. If there's nothing at $x,$y then return undef.

$n = $path->n_start()

Return 1, the first N in the path.
