NAME ^

Grid::Transform - fast grid transformations

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Grid::Transform;

    $g = Grid::Transform->new(['a'..'o'], rows=>5);
    $g->rotate_270->flip_vertical;
    print join(' ', $g->grid), "\n";

DESCRIPTION ^

The Grid::Transform module provides fast methods to transform a grid of arbitrary data types.

METHODS ^

$g = Grid::Transform->new( \@grid, rows=>num, columns=>num )

Creates a new Grid::Transform object. The first argument is a reference to a 1-dimensional array representing a 2-dimensional "row major" (row by row) grid. (A column major grid is simply the counter transpose of a row major one.) The grid may be composed of arbitrary data types. The original array is never modified- all transformations operate on a copy.

At least one dimension must be specified. If the grid and dimensions do not produce a rectangular grid extra empty elements ("") will be added to the grid.

$g2 = $g->copy

Returns a copy of the original Grid::Transform object.

These methods get or set the grid attributes:

@grid = $g->grid
$grid = $g->grid
@grid = $g->grid( \@grid )

In list context, returns an array representing the current grid. In scalar context, returns a reference to the array. Accepts an array reference representing a new grid. The new grid will be resized if the dimensions of the previous grid do not match.

$g->rows
$g->rows( $num )

Returns or sets the current number of rows.

$g->columns
$g->cols
$g->columns( $num )

Returns or sets the current number of columns.

All transform methods return the Grid::Transform object, so transforms can be chained.

$g->rotate_90
$g->rotate90

Rotates the grid 90 degrees clock-wise.

NOTES ^

Some of the methods require temporary extra space for bookkeeping, so it's possible that O(n^3) space will be required- the original array, the internal copy, and the temporary space required by the transformation. Note, the copies are shallow, so they will be smaller than the original array if it contains complex data structures.
