Data::Grove::Parent(3)User Contributed Perl DocumentatioData::Grove::Parent(3)

       Data::Grove::Parent - provide parent properties to Data::Grove objects

	use Data::Grove::Parent;

	$root = $object->root;
	$rootpath = $object->rootpath;
	$tied = $object->add_magic([ $parent ]);

	$node = Data::Grove::Parent->new($hash [, $parent]);
	$node_list = Data::Grove::ParentList->new($array [, $parent]);

       Data::Grove::Parent is an extension to Data::Grove that adds `"Parent"'
       and `"Raw"' properties to Data::Grove objects and methods for returning
       the root node of a grove, a list of nodes between and including the
       root node and the current node, and a method that creates parented

       Data::Grove::Parent works by creating a Perl ``tied'' object that
       contains a parent reference (`"Parent"') and a reference to the
       original Data::Grove object (`"Raw"').  Tying-magic is used so that
       every time you reference the Data::Grove::Parent object it actually
       references the underlying raw object.

       When you retrieve a list or a property of the Raw object,
       Data::Grove::Parent automatically adds magic to the returned list or
       node.  This means you only call `add_magic()' once to create the first
       Data::Grove::Parent object and then use the grove objects like you
       normally would.

       The most obvious use of this is so you don't have to call a `"delete"'
       method when you want to release a grove or part of a grove; since
       Data::Grove and Data::Grove::Parent objects have no cyclic references,
       Perl can garbage collect them normally.

       A secondary use is to allow you to reuse grove or property set
       fragments in multiple trees.  WARNING: Data::Grove currently does not
       protect you from creating your own cyclic references!  This could lead
       to infinite loops if you don't take care to avoid them.

	   `"root()"' returns the root node if `$object' is a
	   `"Data::Grove::Parent"' object.  `"rootpath()"' returns an array of
	   all the nodes between and including the root node and `$object'.

       $tied = $object->add_magic([ $parent ])
	   `"add_magic()"' returns a "Data::Grove::Parent" object with
	   `$object' as it's `"Raw"' object.  If `$parent' is given, that
	   becomes the tied object's parent object.
