The plain TerdragonCurve is tripled in size and two points on each 3-long edge are visited by the TerdragonRounded here.

Arms

Multiple copies of the curve can be selected, each advancing successively. The curve is 1/6 of the plane (like the plain terdragon) and 6 arms rotated by 60, 120, 180, 240 and 300 degrees mesh together perfectly.

arms => 6 begins as follows. N=0,6,12,18,etc is the first arm (the curve shown above), then N=1,7,13,19 the second copy rotated 60 degrees, N=2,8,14,20 the third rotated 120, etc.

FUNCTIONS ^

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

$path = Math::PlanePath::TerdragonRounded->new ()
$path = Math::PlanePath::TerdragonRounded->new (arms => $count)

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.

FORMULAS ^

X,Y Visited

When arms=6 all "hex centred" points of the plane are visited, being those points with

    X+3Y mod 6 == 2 or 4        "hex_centred"
