=head1 NAME

Tree::Simple::Visitor::VariableDepthClone - A Visitor for cloning parts of Tree::Simple hierarchy


  use Tree::Simple::Visitor::VariableDepthClone;

  # create an visitor
  my $visitor = Tree::Simple::Visitor::VariableDepthClone->new();


  # pass our visitor to the tree

  my $partial_tree = $visitor->getClone();


This visitor will clone

=head1 METHODS

=over 4

=item B<new>

There are no arguments to the constructor the object will be in its default state. You can use the C<setNodeFilter> method to customize its behavior.

=item B<includeTrunk ($boolean)>

Based upon the value of C<$boolean>, this will tell the visitor to include the trunk of the tree in the traversal as well. This basically means it will clone the root node as well.

=item B<setCloneDepth ($number)>

=item B<setNodeFilter ($filter_function)>

This method accepts a CODE reference as its C<$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 cloned.

=item B<visit ($tree)>

This is the method that is used by Tree::Simple's C<accept> method. It can also be used on its own, it requires the C<$tree> argument to be a Tree::Simple object (or derived from a Tree::Simple object), and will throw and exception otherwise.

=item B<getClone>

This method returns the cloned partial tree.


=head1 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.


See the B<CODE COVERAGE> section in L<Tree::Simple::VisitorFactory> for more information.

=head1 SEE ALSO

These Visitor classes are all subclasses of B<Tree::Simple::Visitor>, which can be found in the B<Tree::Simple> module, you should refer to that module for more information.
