=head1 NAME

Data::TreeValidator::RepeatingBranch - A branch that can have its input repeated multiple times


A repeatable branch is one that has a specification, and can consume input
multiple times. The branch can have any valid specification (including
repeatable elements).

This class has all the functionality of L<Data::TreeValidation::Branch>.

=head1 METHODS

=head2 process($input)

Takes an array reference as input, and attempts to validate each element against
the branch specification.

Returns a L<Data::TreeValidator::Result::Repeating> result object, which can be
inspected to determine if the processing was valid, and to obtain the cleaned
data (which will be wrapped as an array reference).
