Simple hashsets for node

Installation

npm install simple-hashset

Usage

var Set = require('simple-hashset');

var s = new Set('a', 'b', 'c');

console.log(s.contains('b'));
console.log(s.contains('d'));

Limitations

This package simply uses objects as associative arrays. Therefore, using sets with objects or functions is not recommended.

API

new Set()

var a = new Set();        // Creates an empty set
var b = new Set(1, 2, 4); // Creates a set that contains 1, 2 and 3
var c = new Set(b);       // Creates a copy of set b

Set#isEmpty()

Returns true iff the set is empty.

Set#size()

Returns the cardinality of the set.

Set#contains(elem)

Returns true iff elem is an element of the set.

Set#add()

Adds elements to the set.

var s = new Set(1); // s = { 1 }

s.add(2, 5, 7);     // s = { 1, 2, 5, 7 }

Set#remove()

Removes elements to the set.

var s = new Set(1, 2, 3, 4); // s = { 1, 2, 3, 4 }

s.remove(2, 7);              // s = { 1, 3, 4 }

Set#toArray()

Returns an array containing the elements of the set. The order of elements is unspecified.

Set#union(that)

Returns a new set containing the elements from this and the elements from that.

Set#diff(that)

Returns a new set containing the elements from this which are not in that.

Set#intersect(that)

Returns a new set containing the elements from this which are also in that.

Set#delta(that)

Returns a new set containing the elements that are in either this or that but not in both. This is the symmetric difference of sets.

Set#subset(that)

Returns true iff this is a subset of that.

Set#strictSubset(that)

Returns true iff this is a strict subset of that.

Set#superset(that)

Returns true iff this is a superset of that.

Set#strictSuperset(that)

Returns true iff this is a strict superset of that.

Set#equal(that)

Returns true iff this is equal to that.

Set#map(f)

Returns a new set containing elements mapped by f.

var a = new Set(2, 5); // a = { 2, 5 }
var f = function(x) {
  var y = parseInt(x);
  return y+1;
};
var b = a.map(f);      // b = { 3, 6 }

Set#flatMap(f)

Like map but f returns sets.

var a = new Set(2, 5);    // a = { 2, 5 }
var f = function(x) {
  var y = parseInt(x);
  return new Set(y, y+3);
};
var b = a.flatMap(f);     // b = { 2, 5, 8 }
