Set::Infinite::_recurrence - Extends Set::Infinite with recurrence functions

$recurrence = $base_set->_recurrence ( \&next, \&previous );

This is an internal class used by the DateTime::Set module. The API is subject to change.

It provides all functionality provided by Set::Infinite, plus the ability to define recurrences with arbitrary objects, such as dates.

**_recurrence ( \&next, \&previous )**

Creates a recurrence set. The set is defined inside a 'base set'.$recurrence = $base_set->_recurrence ( \&next, \&previous );

The recurrence functions take one argument, and return the 'next' or the 'previous' occurence.

Example: defines the set of all 'integer numbers':

use strict;

use Set::Infinite::_recurrence; use POSIX qw(floor);

# define the recurrence span my $forever = Set::Infinite::_recurrence->new( Set::Infinite::_recurrence::NEG_INFINITY, Set::Infinite::_recurrence::INFINITY );

my $recurrence = $forever->_recurrence( sub { # next floor( $_[0] + 1 ) }, sub { # previous my $tmp = floor( $_[0] ); $tmp < $_[0] ? $tmp : $_[0] - 1 }, );

print "sample recurrence ", $recurrence->intersection( -5, 5 ), "\n"; # sample recurrence -5,-4,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,4,5

{ my $x = 234.567; print "next occurence after $x = ", $recurrence->{param}[0]->( $x ), "\n"; # 235 print "previous occurence before $x = ", $recurrence->{param}[2]->( $x ), "\n"; # 234 }

{ my $x = 234; print "next occurence after $x = ", $recurrence->{param}[0]->( $x ), "\n"; # 235 print "previous occurence before $x = ", $recurrence->{param}[2]->( $x ), "\n"; # 233 }

**is_forever**

Returns true if the set is a single span, ranging from -Infinity to Infinity.**_is_recurrence**

Returns true if the set is an unbounded recurrence, ranging from -Infinity to Infinity.

**INFINITY**

The`Infinity`

value.**NEG_INFINITY**

The`-Infinity`

value.
