NAME ^

Number::Extreme - Helper for keeping track of extreme values of objects

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Number::Extreme;

  # a bunch of objects with the "high" attribute.
  my $id = 0;
  my @objects = map { { id => $id++, high => $_ } } shuffle (1..100);

  # create a highest-high tracker, which extracts "high" from given objects
  my $highest_high = Number::Extreme->max(sub { $_->{high} });

  # test the values
  $highest_high->test($_) for @objects;

  # now you have the highest high
  warn $highest_high;

  # and the object of that high
  warn $highest_high->current->{id};

DESCRIPTION ^

Number::Extreme provides simple utility for a common task: tracking highest or lowest value of an attribute of objects, while keeping track of which object is of the extreme value.

METHODS

$class->max($extractor)
$class->min($extractor)

Helper constructors for creating max/min tracker. $extractor takes $_ as the object to be tested, and returns the attribute to be compared.

$class->amax($array)
$class->amin($array)

Helper constructors for tracking max/min values of an arrayref. test() should be called with the array index.

$obj->test($o)

Update the tracker with new incoming object.
