NAME

       Tree::Simple::Visitor::GetAllDescendents - A Visitor for fetching all the descendents of a
       Tree::Simple object

SYNOPSIS

         use Tree::Simple::Visitor::GetAllDescendents;

         # create an instance of our visitor
         my $visitor = Tree::Simple::Visitor::GetAllDescendents->new();

         # pass the visitor to a Tree::Simple object
         $tree->accept($visitor);

         # you can also get the descendents
         # back as an array of node values
         my @descendents = $visitor->getDescendents();

         # for more complex node objects, you can specify
         # a node filter which will be used to extract the
         # information desired from each node
         $visitor->setNodeFilter(sub {
                       my ($t) = @_;
                       return $t->getNodeValue()->description();
                       });

DESCRIPTION

       Given a Tree::Simple instance this Visitor will return all the descendents recursively on
       down the hierarchy.

METHODS

       new There are no arguments to the constructor the object will be in its default state. You
           can use the "setNodeFilter" method to customize its behavior.

       setTraversalMethod ($visitor)
           By default we will use Tree::Simple's built in depth-first (pre-order) traverse
           method. If however, you desire the descendents to be returned in a different ordering,
           this can be accomplished using a different traversal method, you can supply a $visitor
           object implementing that traversal type to this method (See
           Tree::Simple::Visitor::BreadthFirstTraversal, Tree::Simple::Visitor::PreOrderTraversal
           and Tree::Simple::Visitor::PostOrderTraversal).

       setNodeFilter ($filter_function)
           This method accepts a CODE reference as its $filter_function argument and throws an
           exception if it is not a code reference. This code reference is used to filter the
           tree nodes as they are collected. This can be used to customize output, or to gather
           specific information from a more complex tree node. The filter function should accept
           a single argument, which is the current Tree::Simple object.

       visit ($tree)
           This is the method that is used by Tree::Simple's "accept" method. It can also be used
           on its own, it requires the $tree argument to be a Tree::Simple object (or derived
           from a Tree::Simple object), and will throw and exception otherwise.

       getAllDescendents
           This method will give back and array of descendents in depth-first order (pre-order)
           or in the order specified by the "setTraversalMethod". If called in scalar context it
           will give an array reference, in list context it will return a regular array. This
           method is the same as calling "getResults".

BUGS

       None that I am aware of. Of course, if you find a bug, let me know, and I will be sure to
       fix it.

CODE COVERAGE

       See the CODE COVERAGE section in Tree::Simple::VisitorFactory for more inforamtion.

SEE ALSO

       These Visitor classes are all subclasses of Tree::Simple::Visitor, which can be found in
       the Tree::Simple module, you should refer to that module for more information.
