       Data::Page::Pageset - change long page list to be shorter and well navigate


       Pages number can be very high, and it is not comfortable to show user from the first page
       to the last page list. Sometimes we need split the page list into some sets to shorten the
       page list, the form is like:

        1-6 7-12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19-24 25-30 31-36 37-41

       the first two part indicats the two pagesets, and in current pageset, we provide the
       normal page list from the first one to the last one, and provide the rest pagesets to
       indicate the pages scope.

       In this module, you can specify the pages_per_set or max_pagesets for fine showing.


        use Data::Page::Pageset;
        # we use Data::Page object, so do prepare
        my $page = Data::Page->new($total_entries, $entries_per_page, $current_page);
        # create the pageset object
        my $pageset = Data::Page::Pageset->new( $page );
        my $pageset = Data::Page::Pageset->new( $page, 12 );
        my $pageset = Data::Page::Pageset->new( $page, { max_pagesets => $max_pagesets } );
        my $pageset = Data::Page::Pageset->new( $page, { pages_per_set => $pages_per_set } );

        # for using
        foreach my $chunk ( $pageset->total_pagesets ){
               if ( $chunk->is_current ){
                       map { print "$_ " } ( $chunk->first .. $chunk->last );
                       print "$chunk ";


            # default page_per_set is 10
            my $pageset = Data::Page::Pageset->new( $page );

            # set the page_per_set to be 12
            my $pageset = Data::Page::Pageset->new( $page, 12 );
            # another the same by passing hashref
            my $pageset = Data::Page::Pageset->new( $page, { pages_per_set => $pages_per_set } );

            # set the max_pagesets value, default is 1
            my $pageset = Data::Page::Pageset->new( $page, { max_pagesets => $max_pagesets } );
            # if max_pagesets supplies, the pages_per_set setting will be ignore
            my $pageset = Data::Page::Pageset->new( $page,
                   { max_pagesets => $max_pagesets, pages_per_set => $pages_per_set } );

           We must need $page(isa Data::Page) object.

       max_pagesets( $number )
            # set the max_pagesets value, and the $pageset's info will changed immediately
            $pageset->max_pagesets( $number );

       pages_per_set( $number )
            # set the pages_per_set value, and the $pageset's info will changed immediately
            $pageset->pages_per_set( $number );
            my $present_setting = $pageset->pages_per_set();

           return total pages' number.

           return the actual pagesets number.

            my $chunk = $pageset->first_pageset;

           return the first pageset, it's Data::Page::Pageset::Chunk object

            my $chunk = $pageset->last_pageset;

           return the last pageset, it's Data::Page::Pageset::Chunk object

            my $chunk = $pageset->current_pageset;

           return the current pageset which current page is in this pageset, it's
           Data::Page::Pageset::Chunk object

            my $chunk = $pageset->previous_pageset;

           return the previous pageset, it's Data::Page::Pageset::Chunk object

            my $chunk = $pageset->next_pageset;

           return the next pageset, it's Data::Page::Pageset::Chunk object

Data::Page::Pageset::Chunk object

       a $pageset gives you some $chunk to do more stuff as you see above. Here gives the $chunk

            # return the first page number in this chunk

            # return the last page number in this chunk

            # return the middle page number in this chunk

            # return the pages number in this chunk

            # return true if this $chunk contains the current_page

            # if this chunk is from page 3 to 7, then print '3-7'
            print $chunk;
            print $chunk->as_string;
            print $chunk->as_string('-');

            # you can change default '-' as:
            print $chunk->as_string('~');

           if the $chunk only contains one page, it will only return the page number.


       Data::Page is what we need, Data::Pageset is the similar one, Template::Plugin::Pageset is
       the wrapper for this to using it more converiently in TT2 tempale.
