Restorable: an iterator adapter for saving and restoring iterator state

This is ideal for writing lexers and parsers where backtracking may be required.

Usage

  1. Adapter
use restorable::RestorableIter;

#[test]
fn test_restorable_new() {
    let mut iterator = RestorableIter::new(0..4);
    assert_eq!(iterator.next(), Some(0));
    assert_eq!(iterator.next(), Some(1));
    iterator.save();
    assert_eq!(iterator.next(), Some(2));
    assert_eq!(iterator.next(), Some(3));
    iterator.restore();
    assert_eq!(iterator.next(), Some(2));
    assert_eq!(iterator.next(), Some(3));
    assert_eq!(iterator.next(), None);
}
  1. Trait
use restorable::Restorable;

#[test]
fn test_iter_restorable() {
    let mut iterator = (0..4).iter_restorable();
    assert_eq!(iterator.next(), Some(0));
    assert_eq!(iterator.next(), Some(1));
    iterator.save();
    assert_eq!(iterator.next(), Some(2));
    assert_eq!(iterator.next(), Some(3));
    iterator.restore();
    assert_eq!(iterator.next(), Some(2));
    assert_eq!(iterator.next(), Some(3));
    assert_eq!(iterator.next(), None);
}
