NAME

       Tree::Simple::Visitor::PathToRoot - A Visitor for finding the path back a Tree::Simple
       object's root

SYNOPSIS

         use Tree::Simple::Visitor::PathToRoot;

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

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

         # now get the accumulated path as a string
         # with the '/' character as the delimiter
         print $visitor->getPathAsString("/");

         # include the tree's trunk in your
         # output as well
         $visitor->includeTrunk();

         # 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();
                       });

         # you can also get the path back as an array
         my @path = $visitor->getPath();

DESCRIPTION

       Given a Tree::Simple object, this Visitor will find the path back to the tree's root node.

METHODS

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

       includeTrunk ($boolean)
           Based upon the value of $boolean, this will tell the visitor to collect the trunk of
           the tree as well.

       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.

       getPath
           This will return the collected path as an array, or in scalar context, as an array
           reference.

       getPathAsString ($delimiter)
           This will return the collected path as a string with the path elements joined by a
           $delimiter. If no $delimiter is specified, the default (', ') will be used.

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.
