Entity Tree for 2D isometric games

Hello, I've made a z-order speedy Game Entity Tree for use in 2D isometric view games. The thing is you can use an adapter on the tree and use references to alleviate the algorithm. You make lists of entities which get drawn when descending in the balanced tree, a key value is the depth of e.g. the house entities on a background. If you want a more OOP tree, you can use leaf and node tags, consed to data and check these before returning data from e.g. a leaf.

    I doubt this is working code, for a couple of reasons:

    • insert, collect_nodes and search subroutines have incorrect parameter assigments (all but first parameter are uninitialised)
    • search is nondeterministic (hash keys have random iteration order since Perl 5.18 and unpredictable order in earlier versions)
    • search will probably die if you ever get to the "return push(...)" branch
