NAME ^

Parse::Eyapp::TokenGen - Support for Using Parse::Eyapp as a Data Generator

INTRODUCTION ^

For a introduction to data generation using Parse::Eyapp see Parse::Eyapp::datagenerationtut.

METHODS ^

set_tokengens

Receives the parser object and the pairs

    token => generator

Sets the generator attribute of the tokens. Though not strictly necessary, the generator is a Test::LectroTest::Generator object.

set_weights

Receives the parser object and the pairs

    token => weight

Sets the weight attribute of the tokens. The weight is a floating number.

set_tokenweightsandgenerators

Receives the parser object and the pairs

    token => [weight, generator]

or

    token => weight

and sets the weight and generator attributes of the tokens. An example can be found in examples/generator/GenSupport.pm:

  $parser->set_tokenweightsandgenerators(
    NUM => [ 2, Int(range=>[0, 9], sized=>0)],
    VAR => [
              0,  # At the beginning, no variables are defined
              Gen {
                return  Elements(keys %st)->generate if keys %st;
                return Int(range=>[0, 9], sized=>0)->generate;
              },
            ],
    VARDEF => [ 
                2,  
                String( length=>[1,2], charset=>"A-NP-Z", size => 100 )
              ],
    '=' => 2, '-' => 1, '+' => 2, 
    '*' => 4, '/' => 2, '^' => 0.5, 
    ';' => 1, '(' => 1, ')' => 2, 
    ''  => 2, 'error' => 0,
  );

token_weight

Receives the parser object and the token and returns the weight. If an additional weight is provided the weight for the token is set.

token_generator

Receives the parser object and the token and returns the generator. If an additional generator is provided the generator for the token is set.

deltaweight

Has the syntax:

  $parser->deltaweight(TOKEN1 => deltaweight1, TOKEN2 => deltaweight2, ...)

increases the weight of the respective token by the associated amount.

pushdeltaweight

As deltaweight but the current weights of the involved tokens are saved in a stack

popweight

Restores the weights of the tokens that were previously saved with pushdeltaweight
