File syntax

The Lpy file format is based on the python language which is extended with Lsystem particular constructs.

Lsystem specific declaration

module name Declaration of module name.
consider: name Symbol to consider.
ignore: name Symbol to ignore.
group id: Following rules will be associated to group id. By default rules are associated to group 0.
The rules of this group will always be applied. Additionnally to activate other groups, use command useGroup.
Axiom: Lstring Declaration of the axiom of the Lsystem
produce Lstring Produce an Lstring and return.
nproduce Lstring Produce an Lstring whithout returning.
derivation length: value Number of derivation to do (default=1).
production: Start of the production rules declaration.
homomorphism: Start of the interpretation rules declaration.
interpretation: Start of the interpretation rules declaration.
decomposition: Start of the decomposition rules declaration.
maximum depth: Number of decomposition or interpretation recursive call to do (default=1).
endgroup Reactivate default group 0.
endlsystem End of lsystem rules declaration.

Canvas of lpy file

# pure python code
def func():
   # python code
   nproduce lstring # it is possible to use the nproduce statement 
                    # in this part of the file
 
module A,B   # declaration of module name
 
Axiom: lstring # declaration of axiom
 
derivation length: int # default = 1
                       # number of derivation step to perform
production: # beginning of production rules
 
pattern :          # a production rule. Start with successor given as a pattern of module to replace
   python code     # rule core are pure python code with production statement
   produce lstring # production statement giving the new string pattern to produce
 
# simple rules can be expressed this way
pattern --> new_pattern
 
homomorphism: # beginning of homomorphism rules. 
              # They are called before plotting the string or 
              # application of rule with query modules (?[PHUR])
maximum depth: int # default = 1
                   # number of homomorphism recursive step to perform.
                   # should be defined only once
 
decomposition: # beginning of decomposition rules.
               # These rules are applied recursively after each production step
               # usefull to decompose a module into a structure
maximum depth: int # default = 1
                   # number of decomposition recursive step to perform.
                   # should be defined only once
 
group: int  # all following rules will be assign to this group
            # to activate a group of rule see command useGroup
            # by default group 0 is active
 
production: # again all types of rule can be defined
homomorphism:
decomposition:
 
endgroup # following rules will be assign to default 0 group
 
production: # again all types of rule can be defined
homomorphism:
decomposition:
 
endlsystem # end of rules definition
 
# pure python code is again possible
