Tree::DAG_Node may look like overshooting, but it does what it promises, i.e. a simple way of dealing with complex tree structures. I share your chagrin about lack of tests, but having seen that knowledgeable people like merlyn and perrin use it, I feel confident that it must not be as bad as you may think.

A simple example that makes me love this module:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Tree::DAG_Node; my $tree = [ [ 'Node1' ], [ [ 'GrandChild1' ], [ 'GrandChild2' ], 'Node2' ], 'Root' ]; my $dagnode= Tree::DAG_Node->lol_to_tree($tree); print map {"$_\n"} @{ $dagnode->draw_ascii_tree }; __END__ And the output is: | <Root> /-----------------\ | | <Node1> <Node2> /-------------\ | | <GrandChild1> <GrandChild2>

There is also a nice Introduction to Tree::DAG_Node in Tutorials.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
