=head1 NAME

Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Consolidate::AdjacentAsc - Consolidates Adjacent, Duplicate and Overlapping ranges

=head1 SYNOPSIS

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

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

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

  my $range=Data::Range::Compare::Stream->new(0,1);

  # add a new range from the existing one
  $iterator->add_range($range);

  $iterator->prepare_for_consolidate_asc;
  my $processor=Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Consolidate::AdjacentAsc->new($iterator);

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

=head1 DESCRIPTION

This module extends Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Consolidate the consolidation engine and consolidates adjacent ranges.  Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Consolidate can consolidate ranges sorted in the following order: Consolidation Asc range_start asc,range_end desc.

=head2 OO Methods

=over 3

=item * my $processor=Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Consolidate::AdjacentAsc->new($iterator);

=item * my $processor=Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Consolidate::AdjacentAsc->new($iterator,factory_instance=>$obj);

Required arguments: 

  $iterator

    # object must implement Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Base

Optional arguments

      factory_instance =>$obj
        
        # defines the object that implements the $obj->factory($start,$end,$data).
        # new ranges are constructed from the factory interfcae.  If a factory interface
        # is not created an instance of Data::Range::Compare::Stream is assumed.

=item * while($processor->has_next) { ...  }

Returns true when the there are more ranges to consolidate.consolidate.

=item * my $range=$processor->get_next;

If $processor->has_next returns true Returns a instance of Data::Range::Compare::Stream::Iterator::Consolidate::Result
