NAME

Tree::Interval::Fast::Interval - Represents an interval in an instance of Tree::Interval::Fast

VERSION

Version 0.0.1

DESCRIPTION

An interval in an interval tree. It is meant to be used in conjuction with an instance of Tree::Interval::Fast.

SEE ALSO

Tree::Interval::Fast - The interval tree storing instances of Tree::Interval::Fast::Interval

SYNOPSIS

You can create an interval by specifying the range and the data it holds.

    use Tree::Interval::Fast::Interval;

    # create an interval representing the range (15.0, 20.0) which holds
    # a simple integer
    my $interval1 = Tree::Interval::Fast::Interval->new(15, 20, 10);
    
    # another interval with more complicated data
    my $interval2 = Tree::Interval::Fast::Interval->new(10.0, 30.0, [1, 2, 3]);

    # this one holds a hash instead
    my $interval2 = Tree::Interval::Fast::Interval->new(10.0, 30.0, { a=>1, b=>2 });
    ...

    # can get the left/right boundaries of each of the intervals
    printf "I1: (%.2f, %.2f)\n", $interval1->low, $interval1->high;

    # can get the data associated with each interval
    use Data::Dumper;
    print Dumper $interval2->data;
    

METHODS

new

  Arg [1]     : Float; the left boundary of the interval
  Arg [2]     : Float; the right boundary of the interval
  Arg [3]     : Anything; the data associated with the interval

  Example     : my $i = Tree::Interval::Fast::Interval->new(10, 20, [1,2,3]);
                carp "Unable to instantiate tree" unless defined $i;

  Example     : my $right = $tree->high;

  Description : Get the right boundary of the interval.

  Returntype  : Float
  Exceptions  : None
  Caller      : General
  Status      : Stable

data

  Arg [...]   : None
  
  Example     : print Dumper $tree->data;
