NAME

       Set::IntervalTree - Perform range-based lookups on sets of ranges

VERSION

       version 0.12

SYNOPSIS

         use Set::IntervalTree;
         my $tree = Set::IntervalTree->new;
         $tree->insert("ID1",100,200);
         $tree->insert(2,50,100);
         $tree->insert({id=>3},520,700);
         $tree->insert($some_obj,1000,1100);

         my $results = $tree->fetch(400,800);
         my $window = $tree->fetch_window(100,200);
         print scalar(@$results)." intervals found.\n";

         # remove only items overlapping location 100..200 with values
         # less than 100;
         my $removed = $tree->remove(100,200 sub {
           my ($item, $low, $high) = @_;
           return $item < 100;
         });

DESCRIPTION

       Set::IntervalTree uses Interval Trees to store and efficiently look up ranges using a
       range-based lookup.

       All intervals are half-open, i.e. [1,3), [2,6), etc.

EXPORTS

       Nothing.

METHODS

       my $tree = Set::IntervalTree->new;

         Creates a new interval tree object.

       $tree->insert($object, $low, $high);

         Insert a range into the interval tree and associate it with a
         perl scalar.

         $object can be any perl scalar. This is what will be returned by fetch().
         $low is the lower bound of the range.
         $high is the upper bound of the range.

         Ranges are represented as half-closed integer intervals.

       my $results = $tree->fetch($low, $high)

         Return an arrayref of perl objects whose ranges overlap
         the specified range.

         $low is the lower bound of the region to query.
         $high is the upper bound of the region to query.

       my $results = $tree->fetch_window($low, $high)

         Return an arrayref of perl objects whose ranges are completely contained
         witin the specified range.

         $low is the lower bound of the region to query.
         $high is the upper bound of the region to query.

       my $nearest_up = $tree->fetch_nearest_up($query)

         Search for the closest interval in upstream that does not contain the query
         and returns the perl object associated with it.

         $query is the position to use for the search

       my $nearest_down = $tree->fetch_nearest_down($query)

         Search for the closest interval in downstream that does not contain the query
         and returns the perl object associated with it.

         $query is the position to use for the search

       my $removed = $tree->remove($low, $high [, optional \&coderef]);

         Remove items in the tree that overlap the region from $low to $high.
         A coderef can be passed in as an optional third argument for filtering
         what is removed. The coderef receives the stored item, the low point,
         and the high point as its arguments. If the result value of the coderef
         is true, the item is removed, otherwise the item remains in the tree.

         Returns the list of removed items.

       my $removed = $tree->remove_window($low, $high [, optional \&coderef]);

         Remove items in the tree that are contained within the region from $low
         to $high.  A coderef can be passed in as an optional third argument
         for filtering what is removed. The coderef receives the stored item,
         the low point, and the high point as its arguments. If the result
         value of the coderef is true, the item is removed, otherwise the item
         remains in the tree.

         Returns the list of removed items.

LIMITATIONS

       A $tree->print() serialization method might be useful for debugging.

SEE ALSO

       The source code for this module contains a reusable template-based C++ header for Interval
       trees that might be useful.
