NAME

Data::Tree::Describe - Create annotated versions of complex data trees

WARNING

This module is in active development and has been uploaded simply as part of a standard and automated release procedure.

If you have any ideas for what would be helpful to implement, please contact the author!

SYNOPSIS

    use Data::Tree::Describe;

    my $data_object = {test=>['some','stuff']};

    my $described_tree = Data::Tree::Describe->new($data_object);

DESCRIPTION

This module was originally developed for data trees or objects created from json::maybexs, though it technically will work on any perl data tree.

The module is fairly heavy processing wise and recursively iterates through a tree determining the type for every node as well as other handy attributes such as how many children are in any HASH or ARRAY type.

METHODS

Callable methods

new

Create a new annotated data tree

Takes 1 argument a $obj

BEWARE large objects will take some time to be processed.

paths_list

Return a list of all paths in the format: [['child name',TYPE]....]

Of the list returned, the first element [0] will always have a blank 'child name' as it is representative of the parent node.
