NAME

Tree::Object::Array::Glob - An array-based tree object (variant)

VERSION

This document describes version 0.080 of Tree::Object::Array::Glob (from Perl distribution Tree-Object), released on 2021-10-07.

SYNOPSIS

In lib/My/ArrayTree.pm:

 package My::ArrayTree;
 use Tree::Object::Array::Glob qw(attr1 attr2 attr3);
 1;

DESCRIPTION

This module lets you create an array-backed (instead of hash-backed) tree object. Instead of subclassing Tree::Object::Hash, you use it in your class and listing all the attributes you will need.

This module is a variation of Tree::Object::Array. It uses Class::Accessor::Array::Glob instead of Class::Accessor::Array. Instead of storing data using:

 [$attr1, $attr2, ..., $parent, \@children]

it stores data as:

 [$attr1, $attr2, ..., $parent, @children]

This style of storage avoids creating an extra array for storing the children and maintain a flat array instead. But one caveat is that your subclass won't be able to introduce more attributes, because the children attribute is a "globbing" attribute at the end of the array.

CONTRIBUTING

To contribute, you can send patches by email/via RT, or send pull requests on GitHub.

Most of the time, you don't need to build the distribution yourself. You can simply modify the code, then test via:

 % prove -l

If you want to build the distribution (e.g. to try to install it locally on your system), you can install Dist::Zilla, Dist::Zilla::PluginBundle::Author::PERLANCAR, and sometimes one or two other Dist::Zilla plugin and/or Pod::Weaver::Plugin. Any additional steps required beyond that are considered a bug and can be reported to me.
