specification (e.g. '1,3,5,...,101')
VERSION
This document describes version 0.008 of NumSeq::Iter (from Perl
distribution NumSeq-Iter), released on 2023-11-21.
SYNOPSIS
use NumSeq::Iter qw(numseq_parse numseq_iter);
my $iter = numseq_iter('1,3,5,...,13');
while (my $val = $iter->()) { ... } # 1,3,5,7,9,11,13
$iter = numseq_iter('1,3,5,...,10');
while (my $val = $iter->()) { ... } # 1,3,5,7,9
my $res = numseq_parse(''); # [400, "Parse fail: Please specify one or more number in number sequence: ''"]
my $res = numseq_parse('1,5,2'); # [200, "OK", {numbers=>[1,5,2], has_ellipsis=>0, type=>'itemized', inc=>undef}]
my $res = numseq_parse('1,2,3'); # [200, "OK", {numbers=>[1,2,3], has_ellipsis=>0, type=>'itemized', inc=>undef}]
my $res = numseq_parse('1,2,3,...'); # [200, "OK", {numbers=>[1,2,3], has_ellipsis=>1, type=>'arithmetic', inc=>1, last_number=>undef}]
my $res = numseq_parse('1,3,9,...'); # [200, "OK", {numbers=>[1,3,9], has_ellipsis=>1, type=>'geometric', inc=>3, last_number=>undef}]
my $res = numseq_parse('1,3,5,...,13'); # [200, "OK", {numbers=>[1,3,5], has_ellipsis=>1, type=>'arithmetic', inc=>2, last_number=>13}]
my $res = numseq_parse('2,3,5,...'); # [200, "OK", {numbers=>[1,3,5], has_ellipsis=>1, type=>'fibonacci'}]
my $res = numseq_parse('2,3,7,...'); # [400, "Parse fail: Can't determine the pattern from number sequence: 2, 3, 7"]
DESCRIPTION
This module provides a simple (coderef) iterator which you can call
repeatedly to get numbers specified in a number sequence specification
(string). When the numbers are exhausted, the coderef will return undef.
No class/object involved.
A number sequence is a comma-separated list of numbers (either integer
like 1, -2 or decimal number like 1.3, -100.70) with at least one
number. It can contain an ellipsis (e.g. '1,2,3,...' or '1, 3, 5, ...,
10').
When the sequence has an ellipsis, there must be at least three numbers
before the ellipsis. There can optionally be another number after the
ellipsis to make the sequence finite; but the last number can also be
Inf, +Inf, or -Inf.
Currently these sequences are recognized:
* simple arithmetic sequence ('1,3,5')
* simple geometric sequence ('2,6,18')
* fibonacci ('2,3,5')

CLI named numseq (from App::numseq), but it is only tangentially

CONTRIBUTING
To contribute, you can send patches by email/via RT, or send pull
requests on GitHub.
Most of the time, you don't need to build the distribution yourself. You
can simply modify the code, then test via:
% prove -l
If you want to build the distribution (e.g. to try to install it locally
on your system), you can install Dist::Zilla,
Dist::Zilla::PluginBundle::Author::PERLANCAR,
Pod::Weaver::PluginBundle::Author::PERLANCAR, and sometimes one or two
other Dist::Zilla- and/or Pod::Weaver plugins. Any additional steps
required beyond that are considered a bug and can be reported to me.
