The ranges are given in biological coordinates, meaning the first coordinate is 1 (0 is illegal) and max_length is a legal coordinate. So, if max_length=10 then our coordinates are in 1..10 (both inclusive). Also note that a range like [2,4] expands to2,3,4 since both start and end are inclusive.

This convention always causes some trouble, and most of the time I use to convert the coordinates at the beginning and at the end so I can work with 0-based coordinates. In this case I didn't since it's quite simple, so I'm working with biological coordinates.

Anyway, if we now take your example and arbitrarily replace all 0's with 1's we get:

my @ranges = ([ 1, 5 ], [ 1, 6 ], [ 2, 7 ], [ 3, 8 ], [ 4, 9 ], [ 5, +10 ],[ 5, 1 ], [ 6, 1 ], [ 7, 2 ], [ 8, 3 ], [ 9, 4 ], [ 10, 5 ],); my $rm = RangeMap->new( 10, \@ranges );

Now, [1,3] returns 5; since only the first two and last three ranges contain it.

[1,4] returns 4; since only the first two and last two ranges contain it.

I hope it makes sense now

    So, an inverted range like [9, 4] includes: 1,2,3,4 & 9,10?

      Exactly.

        Then I still don't understand the returns from num_ranges_containing().

        Given the input you describe, [7,10] matches [5,10], [5,1], [6,1], & [7,2], but it returns 1 (not 4)?

        c:\test>861961 12345 1.. 5 123456 1.. 6 234567 2.. 7 345678 3.. 8 456789 4.. 9 567890 5..10 1 567890 5.. 1 1 67890 6.. 1 12 7890 7.. 2 123 890 8.. 3 1234 90 9.. 4 12345 0 10.. 5 1234 1.. 4 RM1: range: 1 .. 4 is contained by 4 + ranges 2345 2.. 5 RM1: range: 2 .. 5 is contained by 4 + ranges 3456 3.. 6 RM1: range: 3 .. 6 is contained by 3 + ranges 4567 4.. 7 RM1: range: 4 .. 7 is contained by 3 + ranges 5678 5.. 8 RM1: range: 5 .. 8 is contained by 3 + ranges 6789 6.. 9 RM1: range: 6 .. 9 is contained by 2 + ranges 7890 7..10 RM1: range: 7 .. 10 is contained by 1 + ranges
