Overview

A dumb agent that represents and helps the user.

An instance of this class (an agent) helps the user to interact with the world (YPetri::World instance) and the objects in it (Petri net places, transitions, nets etc.). In particular, this (YPetri::Agent) class is a convenient place to store various “shortcuts” meant to reduce the amount of typing the user has to do in order to construct and manipulate the world and its objects (such as “pl” instead of “place”, “tr” instead of “transition” etc.) It would not be a good practice to encumber the classes where these methods are implemented with these semi-idiosyncratic shortcuts. This way, the implementation of the methods stays the concern of the mother classes, and Agent class is responsible for improving the ergonomy of their invocation.
