=head1 NAME

Tree::Simple::Visitor - Visitor object for Tree::Simple objects


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

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

  # create a tree to visit
  my $tree = Tree::Simple->new(Tree::Simple->ROOT)

  # by default this will collect all the
  # node values in depth-first order into
  # our results

  # get our results and print them
  print join ", ", $visitor->getResults();  # prints "1.0, 2.0, 2.1.0, 3.0"

  # for more complex node objects, you can specify
  # a node filter which will be used to extract the
  # information desired from each node
  $visitor->setNodeFilter(sub {
                my ($t) = @_;
                return $t->getNodeValue()->description();

  # NOTE: this object has changed, but it still remains
  # backwards compatible to the older version, see the
  # DESCRIPTION section below for more details


This object has been revised into what I think is more intelligent approach to Visitor objects.
This is now a more suitable base class for building your own Visitors. It is also the base class
for the visitors found in the B<Tree::Simple::VisitorFactory> distribution, which includes a
number of useful pre-built Visitors.

While I have changed a number of things about this module, I have kept it backwards compatible
to the old way of using it. So the original example code still works:

  my @accumulator;
  my $visitor = Tree::Simple::Visitor->new(sub {
                        my ($tree) = @_;
                        push @accumulator, $tree->getNodeValue();


  print join ", ", @accumulator;  # prints "1.0, 2.0, 2.1.0, 3.0"

But is better expressed as this:

  my $visitor = Tree::Simple::Visitor->new();
  print join ", ", $visitor->getResults();  # prints "1.0, 2.0, 2.1.0, 3.0"

This object is still pretty much a wrapper around the Tree::Simple C<traverse> method,
and can be thought of as a depth-first traversal Visitor object.

=head1 METHODS

=over 4

=item B<new ($func, $depth)>

The new style interface means that all arguments to the constructor are now optional.
As a means of defining the usage of the old and new, when no arguments are sent to the
constructor, it is assumed that the new style interface is being used. In the new style,
the C<$depth> is always assumed to be equivalent to C<RECURSIVE> and the C<$func> argument
can be set with C<setNodeFilter> instead. This is the recommended way of doing things now.
If you have been using the old way, it is still there, and I will maintain backwards
compatibility for a few more version before removing it entirely. If you are using this
module (and I do not even know if anyone actually is) you have been warned. Please contact
me if this will be a problem.

The old style constructor documentation is retained her for reference:

The first argument to the constructor is a code reference to a function which expects a
B<Tree::Simple> object as its only argument. The second argument is optional, it can be
used to set the depth to which the function is applied. If no depth is set, the function
is applied to the current B<Tree::Simple> instance. If C<$depth> is set to C<CHILDREN_ONLY>,
then the function will be applied to the current B<Tree::Simple> instance and all its
immediate children. If C<$depth> is set to C<RECURSIVE>, then the function will be applied
to the current B<Tree::Simple> instance and all its immediate children, and all of their
children recursively on down the tree. If no C<$depth> is passed to the constructor,
then the function will only be applied to the current B<Tree::Simple> object and none
 of its children.

=item B<includeTrunk ($boolean)>

Based upon the value of C<$boolean>, this will tell the visitor to collect the trunk of the
tree as well. It is defaulted to false (C<0>) in the new style interface, but is defaulted
to true (C<1>) in the old style interface.

=item B<getNodeFilter>

This method returns the CODE reference set with C<setNodeFilter> argument.

=item B<clearNodeFilter>

This method clears node filter field.

=item B<setNodeFilter ($filter_function)>

This method accepts a CODE reference as its C<$filter_function> argument. 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.

=item B<getResults>

This method returns the accumulated results of the application of the node filter to the tree.

=item B<setResults>

This method should not really be used outside of this class, as it just would not make any sense
to. It is included in this class and in this documentation to facilitate subclassing of this
class for your own needs. If you desire to clear the results, then you can simply call
C<setResults> with no argument.

=item B<visit ($tree)>

The C<visit> method accepts a B<Tree::Simple> and applies the function set in C<new> or
C<setNodeFilter> appropriately. The results of this application can be retrieved with C<getResults>



These constants are part of the old-style interface, and therefore will eventually be deprecated.

=over 4


If passed this constant in the constructor, the function will be applied recursively down the
hierarchy of B<Tree::Simple> objects.


If passed this constant in the constructor, the function will be applied to the immediate children
of the B<Tree::Simple> object.


=head1 BUGS

None that I am aware of. The code is pretty thoroughly tested (see B<CODE COVERAGE> section in
B<Tree::Simple>) and is based on an (non-publicly released) module which I had used in production
systems for about 2 years without incident. Of course, if you find a bug, let me know, and I will
be sure to fix it.

Bugs should be reported via the CPAN bug tracker at
