Graph::Maker::Wheel - Creates a wheel graph.


Version 0.01


Creates a wheel graph with the number of nodes. A wheel graph is a star graph with the outter nodes connected in a cycle. If the graph is directed then edges are added in both directions to create an undirected graph.

        use strict;
        use warnings;
        use Graph;
        use Graph::Maker;
        use Graph::Maker::Wheel;

        my $g = new Graph::Maker('wheel', N => 10, undirected => 1);
        # work with the graph


new %params

Creates a wheel graph with the number of nodes. The recognized parameters are N, and graph_maker any others are passed onto Graph's constructor. If N is note given it defaults to 0. If graph_maker is specified it will be called to create the Graph class as desired (for example if you have a subclass of Graph), this defaults to create a Graph with the parameters specified.
