       Slurm::Hostlist - Hostlist functions in libslurm


        use Slurm;

        $hostnames = "node1,node[2-5,12]";
        $hl = Slurm::Hostlist::create($hostnames);

        $cnt = $hl->count;


        while($host = $hl->shift()) {
               print $host, "\n";

        print $hl->ranged_string(), "\n";


       The Slurm::Hostlist class is a wrapper of the hostlist functions in libslurm. This package
       is loaded and bootstrapped with package Slurm.


   $hl = Slurm::Hostlist::new($str);
       Create a new hostlist from a string representation. Returns an opaque hostlist object.
       This is a CLASS METHOD.

       The string representation ($str) may contain one or more hostnames or bracketed hostlists
       separated by either `,' or whitespace. A bracketed hostlist is denoted by a common prefix
       followed by a list of numeric ranges contained within brackets: e.g. "tux[0-5,12,20-25]".

       To support systems with 3-D topography, a rectangular prism may be described using two
       three digit numbers separated by "x": e.g. "bgl[123x456]". This selects all nodes between
       1 and 4 inclusive in the first dimension, between 2 and 5 in the second, and between 3 and
       6 in the third dimension for a total of 4*4*4=64 nodes.

       If $str is omitted, and empty hostlist is created and returned.

   $cnt = $hl->count();
       Return the number of hosts in the hostlist.

   $pos = $hl->find($hostname);
       Searches hostlist $hl for the first host matching $hostname and returns position in list
       if found.

       Returns -1 if host is not found.

   $cnt = $hl->push($hosts);
       Push a string representation of hostnames onto a hostlist. The $hosts argument may take
       the same form as in create().

       Returns the number of hostnames inserted into the list,

   $cnt = $hl->push_host($hostname);
       Push a single host onto the hostlist hl.

       This function is more efficient than slurm_hostlist_push() for a single hostname, since
       the argument does not need to be checked for ranges.

       Return value is 1 for success, 0 for failure.

   $str = $hl->ranged_string();
       Return the string representation of the hostlist $hl. ranged_string() will write a
       bracketed hostlist representation where possible.

   $host = $hl->shift();
       Returns the string representation of the first host in the hostlist or `undef' if the
       hostlist is empty or there was an error allocating memory. The host is removed from the

       Sort the hostlist $hl and remove duplicate entries.
