simple-atom: Atom (or symbol) datatype for fast comparision and sorting.

[ bsd3, compilers-interpreters, data, library, parsing ] [ Propose Tags ]

This module provides an abstract datatype for atoms, such that:

  • Each atom string is only in memory once

  • O(n) creation time

  • O(1) equality-comparison

  • O(1) (in practice) ord-comparison

  • Ord-comparison results are independent on evaluation order

This module is thread-safe.
