Algorithm::Dependency::Item(3) Implements an item in a dependency heirachy.


The Algorithm::Dependency::Item class implements a single item within the dependency heirachy. It's quite simple, usually created from within a source, and not typically created directly. This is provided for those implementing their own source. ( See Algorithm::Dependency::Source for details ).


new $id, @depends

The "new" constructor takes as its first argument the id ( name ) of the item, and any further arguments are assumed to be the ids of other items that this one depends on.

Returns a new "Algorithm::Dependency::Item" on success, or "undef" on error.


The "id" method returns the id of the item.


The "depends" method returns, as a list, the names of the other items that this item depends on.
