NAME
Tree::Simple::Visitor::PostOrderTraversal - A Visitor for post-order traversal a Tree::Simple hierarchy SYNOPSIS
use Tree::Simple::Visitor::PostOrderTraversal; # create an visitor my $visitor = Tree::Simple::Visitor::PostOrderTraversal->new(); # pass our visitor to the tree $tree->accept($visitor); # print our results print join ", " => $visitor->getResults(); # this will print this: # 1.1.1 1.1 1.2 1 2.1 2 3.1 3 # assuming your tree is like this: # 1 # 1.1 # 1.1.1 # 1.2 # 2 # 2.1 # 3 # 3.1 DESCRIPTION
Post-order traversal is a variation of the depth-first traversal in which the sub-tree's are processed before the parent. It is another alternative to Tree::Simple's "traverse" method which implements a depth-first, pre-order traversal. METHODS
new There are no arguments to the constructor the object will be in its default state. You can use the "setNodeFilter" method to customize its behavior. includeTrunk ($boolean) Based upon the value of $boolean, this will tell the visitor to include the trunk of the tree in the traversal as well. setNodeFilter ($filter_function) This method accepts a CODE reference as its $filter_function argument and throws an exception if it is not a code reference. This code reference is used to filter the tree nodes as they are collected. This can be used to customize output, or to gather specific information from a more complex tree node. The filter function should accept a single argument, which is the current Tree::Simple object. visit ($tree) This is the method that is used by Tree::Simple's "accept" method. It can also be used on its own, it requires the $tree argument to be a Tree::Simple object (or derived from a Tree::Simple object), and will throw and exception otherwise. getResults This method returns the accumulated results of the application of the node filter to the tree. BUGS
None that I am aware of. Of course, if you find a bug, let me know, and I will be sure to fix it. CODE COVERAGE
See the CODE COVERAGE section in Tree::Simple::VisitorFactory for more inforamtion. SEE ALSO
These Visitor classes are all subclasses of Tree::Simple::Visitor, which can be found in the Tree::Simple module, you should refer to that module for more information. AUTHOR

NAME
Tree::Simple::Visitor::FindByNodeValue - A Visitor for finding an element in a Tree::Simple hierarchy by node value SYNOPSIS
use Tree::Simple::Visitor::FindByNodeValue; # create a visitor object my $visitor = Tree::Simple::Visitor::FindByNodeValue->new(); # set the search path for our tree $visitor->searchForNodeValue("My Tree Node"); # pass the visitor to a tree $tree->accept($visitor); # fetch the result, which will # be the Tree::Simple object that # we have found, or undefined my $result = $visitor->getResult() || die "No Tree found"; DESCRIPTION
Given a node value and Tree::Simple hierarchy, this Visitor will attempt to find the node with the same node value. METHODS
new There are no arguments to the constructor the object will be in its default state. You can use the "setNodeFilter", "setTraversalMethod", "includeTrunk" and "searchForNodeValue" methods to customize its behavior. includeTrunk ($boolean) Based upon the value of $boolean, this will tell the visitor to include the trunk of the tree in the search as well. setTraversalMethod ($visitor) By default we will use Tree::Simple's built in depth-first (pre-order) traverse method. If however, you desire the tree to be search in a different ordering, this can be accomplished using a different traversal method, you can supply a $visitor object implementing that traversal type to this method (See Tree::Simple::Visitor::BreadthFirstTraversal, Tree::Simple::Visitor::PreOrderTraversal and Tree::Simple::Visitor::PostOrderTraversal). searchForNodeValue ($node_value) This is the node value we will attempt to find within the tree. setNodeFilter ($filter_function) This method accepts a CODE reference as its $filter_function argument and throws an exception if it is not a code reference. This code reference is used to further check the tree nodes as they are searched and so can be used to customize search behavior. For instance, you could to check against the node value as well as some other criteria. The filter function should accept a single argument, which is the current Tree::Simple object and return either true(1) on success, or false(0) on failure. visit ($tree) This is the method that is used by Tree::Simple's "accept" method. It can also be used on its own, it requires the $tree argument to be a Tree::Simple object (or derived from a Tree::Simple object), and will throw and exception otherwise. getResult This method will return the tree found with the specified node value (set by the "searchForNodeValue" method) or "undef" if no tree is found.
