NAME

Map::Tube - Core library as Role (Moo) to process map data.

VERSION

Version 3.31

DESCRIPTION

The core module defined as Role (Moo) to process the map data. It provides the the interface to find the shortest route in terms of stoppage between two nodes. Also you can get all possible routes between two given nodes.

This role has been taken by the following modules (and many more):

If you are keen to know the internals of Map::Tube then please follow the note documented in Map::Tube::Cookbook.

SYNOPSIS

Common Usage

    use strict; use warnings;
    use Map::Tube::London;

    my $tube = Map::Tube::London->new;
    print $tube->get_shortest_route('Baker Street', 'Euston Square'), "\n";

You should expect the result like below:

    Baker Street (Circle, Hammersmith & City, Bakerloo, Metropolitan, Jubilee), Great Portland Street (Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan), Euston Square (Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan)

Special Usage

    use strict; use warnings;
    use Map::Tube::London;

    my $tube = Map::Tube::London->new;
    print $tube->get_shortest_route('Baker Street', 'Euston Square')->preferred, "\n";

You should now expect the result like below:

    Baker Street (Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan), Great Portland Street (Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan), Euston Square (Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan)

METHODS

get_shortest_routes($from, $to)

It expects $from and $to station name, required param. It returns an object of type Map::Tube::Route. On error it throws exception of type Map::Tube::Exception.

get_all_routes($from, $to) *** EXPERIMENTAL ***

It expects $from and $to station name, required param. It returns ref to a list of objects of type Map::Tube::Route. On error it throws exception of type Map::Tube::Exception.

Be carefull when using against a large map. You may encounter warning similar to as shown below when run against London map.

Deep recursion on subroutine "Map::Tube::_get_all_routes"

However for comparatively smaller map, like below,it is happy to give all routes.

      A(1)  ----  B(2)
     /              \
    C(3)  --------  F(6) --- G(7) ---- H(8)
     \              /
      D(4)  ----  E(5)

name()

Returns map name.

get_node_by_id($node_id)

Returns an object of type Map::Tube::Node.

get_node_by_name($node_name)

Returns ref to a list of object(s) of type Map::Tube::Node matching node name $node_name in scalar context otherwise returns just a list.

get_line_by_id($line_id)

Returns an object of type Map::Tube::Line.

get_line_by_name($line_name)

Returns an object of type Map::Tube::Line.

get_lines()

Returns ref to a list of objects of type Map::Tube::Line.

get_stations($line_name)

Returns ref to a list of objects of type Map::Tube::Node for the $line_name.

PLUGINS

* Map::Tube::Plugin::Graph

The Map::Tube::Plugin::Graph plugin add the support to generate the entire map or map for a particular line as base64 encoded string (png image).

Please refer to the documentation for more details.

* Map::Tube::Plugin::Formatter

The Map::Tube::Plugin::Formatter plugin adds the support to format the object supported by the plugin.

Please refer to the documentation for more info.

* Map::Tube::Plugin::FuzzyFind

Gisbert W. Selke, built the add-on for Map::Tube to find stations and lines by name, possibly partly or inexactly specified. The module is a Moo role which gets plugged into the Map::Tube::* family automatically once it is installed.

Please refer to the documentation for more info.

MAP DATA FORMAT

Map data can be represented in JSON or XML format. The preferred format is JSON. Map::Tube v3.23 or above comes with a handy script map-data-converter, that can be used to change the data format of an existing map data.Below is how we can represet the sample map:

      A(1)  ----  B(2)
     /              \
    C(3)  --------  F(6) --- G(7) ---- H(8)
     \              /
      D(4)  ----  E(5)

JSON

   {
       "name"  : "sample map",
       "lines" : {
           "line" : [
               { "id" : "A", "name" : "A", "color" : "red"     },
               { "id" : "B", "name" : "B", "color" : "#FFFF00" }
           ]
       },
       "stations" : {
           "station" : [
               { "id" : "A1", "name" : "A1", "line" : "A",   "link" : "B2,C3"    },
               { "id" : "B2", "name" : "B2", "line" : "A",   "link" : "A1,F6"    },
               { "id" : "C3", "name" : "C3", "line" : "A,B", "link" : "A1,D4,F6" },
               { "id" : "D4", "name" : "D4", "line" : "A,B", "link" : "C3,E5"    },
               { "id" : "E5", "name" : "E5", "line" : "B",   "link" : "D4,F6"    },
               { "id" : "F6", "name" : "F6", "line" : "B",   "link" : "B2,C3,E5" },
               { "id" : "G7", "name" : "G7", "line" : "B",   "link" : "F6,H8"    },
               { "id" : "H8", "name" : "H8", "line" : "B",   "link" : "G7"       }
           ]
       }
   }

XML

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <tube name="sample map">
        <lines>
            <line id="A" name="A" color="red"    />
            <line id="B" name="B" color="#FFFF00"/>
        </lines>
        <stations>
            <station id="A1" name="A1" line="A"   link="B2,C3"   />
            <station id="B2" name="B2" line="A"   link="A1,F6"   />
            <station id="C3" name="C3" line="A,B" link="A1,D4,F6"/>
            <station id="D4" name="D4" line="A,B" link="C3,E5"   />
            <station id="E5" name="E5" line="B"   link="D4,F6"   />
            <station id="F6" name="F6" line="B"   link="B2,C3,E5"/>
            <station id="G7" name="G7" line="B"   link="F6,H8"   />
            <station id="H8" name="H8" line="B"   link="G7"      />
        </stations>
    </tube>

MAP VALIDATION

DATA VALIDATION

The package Test::Map::Tube can easily be used to validate raw map data.Anyone building a new map using Map::Tube is advised to have a unit test as a part of their distribution.Just like in Map::Tube::London package,there is a unit test something like below:

    use strict; use warnings;
    use Test::More;
    use Map::Tube::London;

    eval "use Test::Map::Tube";
    plan skip_all => "Test::Map::Tube required" if $@;

    ok_map(Map::Tube::London->new);

FUNCTIONAL VALIDATION

The package Test::Map::Tube v0.09 or above can easily be used to validate map basic functions provided by Map::Tube.

    use strict; use warnings;
    use Test::More;

    my $min_ver = 0.09;
    eval "use Test::Map::Tube $min_ver";
    plan skip_all => "Test::Map::Tube $min_ver required" if $@;

    use Map::Tube::London;
    ok_map_functions(Map::Tube::London->new);

The package Test::Map::Tube v0.17 or above can easily be used to validate map routing functions provided by Map::Tube.

    use strict; use warnings;
    use Test::More;

    my $min_ver = 0.17;
    eval "use Test::Map::Tube $min_ver tests => 1";
    plan skip_all => "Test::Map::Tube $min_ver required" if $@;

    use Map::Tube::London;
    my $map = Map::Tube::London->new;

    my @routes = (
        "Route 1|Tower Gateway|Aldgate|Tower Gateway,Tower Hill,Aldgate",
        "Route 2|Liverpool Street|Monument|Liverpool Street,Bank,Monument",
    );

    ok_map_routes($map, \@routes);
