example

sorted

var sorted = require('sorted');
var xs = sorted([ 3, 1, 2, 0 ]);
console.log(xs);
xs.push(2.5);
console.log(xs);

output:

<Sorted [0,1,2,3]>
<Sorted [0,1,2,2.5,3]>

neighbors

var sorted = require('sorted');

var xs = 'bhdajemfcngiklop'.split('');
var s = sorted(xs);
var ix = s.findIndex('h');
console.log('current:', s.get(ix));
console.log('prev:', s.get(ix-1));
console.log('next:', s.get(ix+1));

output:

current: h
prev: g
next: i

range

var sorted = require('sorted');

var xs = 'bhdajemfcngiklop'.split('');
var s = sorted(xs);
console.log(s.range('e', 'j').join(''));

output:

efghij

methods

var sorted = require('sorted');

var s = sorted(xs, cmp)

Create a new sorted array s given an array xs which may or may not be sorted and a comparison function cmp. If cmp isn't specified it defaults to:

function cmp (a, b) {
    if (a == b) return 0
    else if (a > b) return 1
    else if (a < b) return -1
    else throw new RangeError('Unstable comparison: ' + a + ' cmp ' + b)
}

cmp should return 0 for equality, < 0 for less than, and > 0 for greater than. If cmp returns a value for which comparisons fail such as NaN it will throw a RangeError.

s.isSorted(xs, cmp)

Return whether xs is sorted using cmp. xs can be an array or a sorted instance, which always return true.

s.fromSorted(xs, cmp)

Create a new sorted structure from a pre-sorted array or sorted object xs using a comparison cmp which falls back to the default if unspecified.

s.push(x, ...), s.unshift(x, ...)

Insert the element or elements x, ... into the data structure, maintaining the sorted order.

s.splice(i, len, ...)

Remove len elements starting at index i. Any additional arguments will be pushed to the structure maintaining the sorted order.

s.findIndex(x, start=0, end=s.length)

Search for the index of the value x starting at index start and ending at end using a binary search.

If the value lies outside the given range, return either bound depending.

s.toArray()

Return a copy of the underlying sorted data as an array.

s.sort(cmp)

Return a new sorted structure using the comparison cmp. If the comparison is the same as s.compare, returns a sorted copy.

s.concat(x, ...)

Return a new sorted which concatenates the items, arrays, and sorteds in the arguments list.

s.insert(xs)

Insert the array, element, or sorted xs into the structure. If xs is a sorted, this fact will be observed to make the insertion go faster.

s.get(i)

Get the element at index i.

s.set(i, x)

Set the element at index i, preserving the ordering.

s.slice(i, j)

Return a new sorted containing elements between i and j using s.compare.

s.map(fn)

Return a new sorted mapping over the elements of s with fn.

s.filter(fn)

Return a new sorted filtering over the elements of s with fn.

s.shift()

Return and remove the least item in the structure.

s.pop()

Return and remove the greatest item in the structure.

s.range(a, b)

Return the range of all elements from a through b, inclusive.

attributes

s.length

Number of elements in the structure

s.compare

Comparison function being used

s.elements

The raw elements. If you mess with these directly you risk invalidating the ordering.

array methods

These methods work exactly like in a regular array:

  • indexOf
  • forEach
  • reduce
  • reduceRight
  • every
  • some
  • join
