List::Rotation::Cycle - Cycle through a list of values via a singleton object implemented as closure.
use List::Rotation::Cycle; my @array = qw( A B C ); my $first_cycle = List::Rotation::Cycle->new(@array); my $second_cycle = List::Rotation::Cycle->new(@array); print $first_cycle->next; ## prints A print $second_cycle->next; ## prints B print $first_cycle->next; ## prints C print $second_cycle->next; ## prints A, looping back to beginning
List::Rotation::Cycle to loop through a list of values. Once you get to the end of the list, you go back to the beginning.
List::Rotation::Cycle is implemented as a Singleton Pattern. You always just get 1 (the very same) Cycle object even if you use the new method several times. This is done by using
Memoize on the
new method. It returns the same object for every use of
new that comes with the same List of parameters.
Create a Cycle object for the list of values in the list.
Return the next element. This method is implemented as a closure.
