NAME ^

Math::PlanePath::DekkingCentres -- 5x5 self-similar

SYNOPSIS ^

 use Math::PlanePath::DekkingCentres;
 my $path = Math::PlanePath::DekkingCentres->new;
 my ($x, $y) = $path->n_to_xy (123);

DESCRIPTION ^

This is a variation of a 5x5 self-similar curve by F. M. Dekking. This form visits the "centres" of the 5x5 self-similar blocks. The result is diagonal steps, but replications wholly within 5x5 areas.

The base pattern is the N=0 to N=24 section. It repeats with rotations or reversals which make the ends join. For example N=75 to N=99 is the base pattern in reverse. Or N=50 to N=74 is reverse and also rotate by -90.

FUNCTIONS ^

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

$path = Math::PlanePath::DekkingCentres->new ()

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.
