version-tree

A data structure for maintaining a tree of versions. This can be useful when implementing fully persistent data structures using the DTSS method. Works in both node.js and browserify. All operations use amortized O(1) space and time.

Example

var createVersionTree = require("version-tree")

//Create a new tree
var root = createVersionTree()

//Create two subversions
var a = root.fork()
var b = root.fork()

//Compare root to children
console.log(root.subversion(a), root.subversion(b), a.subversion(root), b.subversion(a))
// Prints out:
//  true    true    false   false


//Make a child version of a
var c = a.fork()
console.log(root.subversion(c), a.subvsersion(c), b.subversion(c))
//Prints out:
//    true    true    false

Install

npm install version-tree
