Math::PlanePath::PentSpiralSkewed -- integer points in a pentagonal shape
use Math::PlanePath::PentSpiralSkewed; my $path = Math::PlanePath::PentSpiralSkewed->new; my ($x, $y) = $path->n_to_xy (123);
This path makes a pentagonal (five-sided) spiral with points skewed so as to fit a square grid and fully cover the plane.

The pattern is similar to the SquareSpiral
but cuts three corners which makes each cycle is faster. Each cycle is just 5 steps longer than the previous (where it's 8 for a SquareSpiral
).
The default is to number points starting N=1 as shown above. An optional n_start
can give a different start, in the same pattern. For example to start at 0,

See "FUNCTIONS" in Math::PlanePath for behaviour common to all path classes.
$path = Math::PlanePath::PentSpiral->new ()
$path = Math::PlanePath::PentSpiral->new (n_start => $n)
Create and return a new path object.
$n = $path->xy_to_n ($x,$y)
Return the point number for coordinates $x,$y
. $x
and $y
are each rounded to the nearest integer, which has the effect of treating each point in the path as a square of side 1.
