NAME

Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Compare::LayerCake - Compare Result Filtering layer

SYNOPSIS

  use Data::Range::Compare::Stream;
  use Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Array;
  use Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Consolidate;
  use Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Compare::LayerCake;

  my $iterator_a=Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Array->new(
    new_from=>'Data::Range::Compare::Stream',
  );

  # create a new range and add it to the iterator
  $iterator_a->create_range(0,0);

  my $iterator_b=Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Array->new(
    new_from=>'Data::Range::Compare::Stream',
  );

  # create a new range and add it to the iterator
  $iterator_b->create_range(1,2);

  $iterator_a->prepare_for_consolidate_asc;
  $iterator_b->prepare_for_consolidate_asc;

  my $consolidate_a=Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Consolidate->new($iterator_a);
  my $consolidate_b=Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Consolidate->new($iterator_b);
  

  my $compare=new Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Compare::LayerCake;

  $compare->add_consolidator($consolidate_a);
  $compare->add_consolidator($consolidate_b);

  while($compare->has_next) {
    # Result objects are instances of: Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Compare::Result
    my $result=$compare->get_next;
  }

DESCRIPTION

This module extends Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Compare::Asc.

Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Compare::LayerCake compares results from Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Consolidate in the following order: Consolidation Asc range_start asc,range_end desc

OO Methods

  • my $compare=new Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Compare::LayerCake;

  • my $compare=new Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Compare::LayerCake(key=>value);

    Object constructor supports the following optional arguments:

        ignore_empty=>0|1 # default 0
          # when set to true all empty result sets are returned
    
        ignore_full=>0|1 # default 0
          # when set to true all full result sets are returned
  • $compare->add_consolidator($iterator);

    An $iterator object must implement one of the following iterator classes: Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Consolidate, Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Compare::Asc. Result objects from $iterator->has_next must implement one of the following result objects: Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Consolidate::Result, Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Compare::Result.

  • while($compare->has_next) { do something }

    Returns true when the there are more ranges to consolidate.

  • my $result=$compare->get_next;

    if $compare->has_next returns true Returns a instance of Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Compare::Result.

  • my $count=$compare->get_column_count_human_readable;

    Returns a human readable count of the columns in the comparison object.

  • my $count=$compare->get_column_count;

    Returns the last index id of the iterator column counts.

  • my $range=$compare->get_current_row;

    Returns the range object that will be used in the $compare->get_next call

  • my $boolean=$compare->iterators_empty;

    Returns false when all iterator objects in $compare are depleted

  • my $result=$compare->get_next;

    If $compare->has_next returns true Returns an instance of Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Compare::Result.
