Autodia::Diagram::Class - Class that holds, updates and outputs the values of a
diagram element of type class.
my $Class = Autodia::Diagram::Class->new;
Autodia::Diagram::Class is an object that represents the Dia UML Class element
within a Dia diagram. It holds, outputs and allows the addition of attributes,
relationships and methods.
my $Class = Autodia::Diagram::Class->new($name);
creates and returns a simple Autodia::Diagram::Class object, containing its name
and its original position (default 0,0).
Autodia::Diagram::Class attributes are accessed through methods, rather than
directly. Each attribute is available through calling the method of its name,
. The methods available are :
Operations, Attributes, Inheritances, Dependancies, Parent, and has_child. The
first 4 return a list, the later return a string.
Adding elements to the Autodia::Diagram::Class is acheived through the
add_<attribute> methods, ie add_inheritance()
Rather than remove an element from the diagram it is marked as redundant and
replaced with a superceding element, as Autodia::Diagram::Class has highest
precedence it won't be superceded and so doesn't have a redundant()
method. Superclass and Component do.
all return a list of their respective elements.
, and has_child()
return the value of the
parent or child respectively if present otherwise a false.
, and add_dependancy()
all add a new element of
their respective types.
