NAME

       Test2::Compare::Delta - Representation of differences between nested data structures.

DESCRIPTION

       This is used by Test2::Compare. When data structures are compared a delta will be
       returned. Deltas are a tree data structure that represent all the differences between two
       other data structures.

METHODS

   CLASS METHODS
       $class->add_column($NAME => sub { ... })
       $class->add_column($NAME, %PARAMS)
           This can be used to add columns to the table that it produced when a comparison fails.
           The first argument should always be the column name, which must be unique.

           The first form simply takes a coderef that produces the value that should be displayed
           in the column for any given delta. The arguments passed into the sub are the delta,
           and the row ID.

               Test2::Compare::Delta->add_column(
                   Foo => sub {
                       my ($delta, $id) = @_;
                       return $delta->... ? 'foo' : 'bar'
                   },
               );

           The second form allows you some extra options. The 'value' key is required, and must
           be a coderef. All other keys are optional.

               Test2::Compare::Delta->add_column(
                   'Foo',    # column name
                   value => sub { ... },    # how to get the cell value
                   alias       => 'FOO',    # Display name (used in table header)
                   no_collapse => $bool,    # Show column even if it has no values?
               );

       $bool = $class->remove_column($NAME)
           This will remove the specified column. This will return true if the column existed and
           was removed. This will return false if the column did not exist. No exceptions are
           thrown. If a missing column is a problem then you need to check the return yourself.

       $class->set_column_alias($NAME, $ALIAS)
           This can be used to change the table header, overriding the default column names with
           new ones.

   ATTRIBUTES
       $bool = $delta->verified
       $delta->set_verified($bool)
           This will be true if the delta itself matched, if the delta matched then the problem
           is in the delta's children, not the delta itself.

       $aref = $delta->id
       $delta->set_id([$type, $name])
           ID for the delta, used to produce the path into the data structure. An example is
           "['HASH' => 'foo']" which means the delta is in the path "...->{'foo'}". Valid types
           are "HASH", "ARRAY", "SCALAR", "META", and "METHOD".

       $val = $delta->got
       $delta->set_got($val)
           Deltas are produced by comparing a received data structure 'got' against a check data
           structure 'check'. The 'got' attribute contains the value that was received for
           comparison.

       $check = $delta->chk
       $check = $delta->check
       $delta->set_chk($check)
       $delta->set_check($check)
           Deltas are produced by comparing a received data structure 'got' against a check data
           structure 'check'. The 'check' attribute contains the value that was expected in the
           comparison.

           "check" and "chk" are aliases for the same attribute.

       $aref = $delta->children
       $delta->set_children([$delta1, $delta2, ...])
           A Delta may have child deltas. If it does then this is an arrayref with those
           children.

       $dne = $delta->dne
       $delta->set_dne($dne)
           Sometimes a comparison results in one side or the other not existing at all, in which
           case this is set to the name of the attribute that does not exist. This can be set to
           'got' or 'check'.

       $e = $delta->exception
       $delta->set_exception($e)
           This will be set to the exception in cases where the comparison failed due to an
           exception being thrown.

   OTHER
       $string = $delta->render_got
           Renders the string that should be used in a table to represent the received value in a
           comparison.

       $string = $delta->render_check
           Renders the string that should be used in a table to represent the expected value in a
           comparison.

       $bool = $delta->should_show
           This will return true if the delta should be shown in the table. This is normally true
           for any unverified delta. This will also be true for deltas that contain extra useful
           debug information.

       $aref = $delta->filter_visible
           This will produce an arrayref of "[ $path => $delta ]" for all deltas that should be
           displayed in the table.

       $aref = $delta->table_header
           This returns an array ref of the headers for the table.

       $string = $delta->table_op
           This returns the operator that should be shown in the table.

       $string = $delta->table_check_lines
           This returns the defined lines (extra debug info) that should be displayed.

       $string = $delta->table_got_lines
           This returns the generated lines (extra debug info) that should be displayed.

       $aref = $delta->table_rows
           This returns an arrayref of table rows, each row is itself an arrayref.

       @table_lines = $delta->table
           Returns all the lines of the table that should be displayed.
