lib.rs:

An ordered set that stores indices in a sparse bit field.

IndexSet works similarly to a normal collection, but only stores indices of its elements. In effect, IndexSet stores whether or not an element is part of the set, whilst allowing the actual element itself to be stored elsewhere; IndexSets do not take ownership of their elements, or even a reference to them, and elements can appear in multiple IndexSets at once.

IndexSet can also be used as an efficient way of storing integers in an ordered set.

See the documentation for IndexSet for more information.

Examples

Basic usage:

use index_set::{IndexSet, ToIndex};

enum Topping {
    Anchovies,
    Cheese,
    Ham,
    Pineapple,
}

impl ToIndex for Topping {
    type Index = u8;

    fn to_index(&self) -> u8 {
        match self {
            Topping::Anchovies => 0,
            Topping::Cheese    => 1,
            Topping::Ham       => 2,
            Topping::Pineapple => 3,
        }
    }
}

let mut pizza = IndexSet::<Topping>::new();
pizza.insert(&Topping::Cheese);
pizza.insert(&Topping::Ham);
pizza.insert(&Topping::Pineapple);

assert_eq!(pizza.contains(&Topping::Pineapple), true);
assert_eq!(pizza.contains(&Topping::Anchovies), false);

Storing integers:

use index_set::IndexSet;

let mut set = IndexSet::<u32>::new();
set.insert(&1000000);
set.insert(&1);
set.insert(&3);
set.insert(&2);

let vec: Vec<u32> = set.into_iter().collect();
assert_eq!(vec, [1, 2, 3, 1000000])

Implementation

Internally, IndexSet uses a sparse bit field to represent the existence of indices in the set. The bit field is divided into buckets of 256 bits and stored in a BTreeMap.
