NAME ^

Treemap::Input - Creates an input object with methods suitable for use with a Treemap object.

DESCRIPTION ^

This base class is not meant to be directly instantiated. Subclasses of Treemap::Input which implement input from various formats shoud be instantiated instead. See the SEE ALSO section below.

CREATING INPUT SUBCLASSES ^

 package Treemap::Input::YourSubclass

 require Treemap::Input
 our @ISA = qw( Treemap::Input Exporter );

No special methods need be implemented at this time. This will be changed in the future, since it violates data incapsulation. When we think of a better way to implement this, we will.

For the time being, a hash within the instance of the class of name "DATA" must exist. It should be structured as follows:

 {DATA}->{name} = string
       ->{size} = numeric
       ->{colour} = "#RRGGBB"
       ->{children} = array reference to refrences of this format

SEE ALSO ^
