A set of *hashable* values. A set cannot contain duplicate items.
A `HashSet`

makes no guarantees as to the order of its elements.

The implementation is based on *hash array mapped trie*. A
`HashSet`

is often faster than other tree-based set types,
especially when value comparison is expensive, as in the case of
strings.

Many operations have a average-case complexity of *O(log n)*. The
implementation uses a large base (i.e. 16) so in practice these
operations are constant time.

# Documentation

A set of values. A set cannot contain duplicate values.

# Construction

# Combine

union :: (Eq a, Hashable a) => HashSet a -> HashSet a -> HashSet aSource

*O(n+m)* Construct a set containing all elements from both sets.

To obtain good performance, the smaller set must be presented as the first argument.

unions :: (Eq a, Hashable a) => [HashSet a] -> HashSet aSource

Construct a set containing all elements from a list of sets.

# Basic interface

insert :: (Eq a, Hashable a) => a -> HashSet a -> HashSet aSource

*O(min(n,W))* Add the specified value to this set.

delete :: (Eq a, Hashable a) => a -> HashSet a -> HashSet aSource

*O(min(n,W))* Remove the specified value from this set if
present.

# Transformations

map :: (Hashable b, Eq b) => (a -> b) -> HashSet a -> HashSet bSource

*O(n)* Transform this set by applying a function to every value.
The resulting set may be smaller than the source.

# Difference and intersection

difference :: (Eq a, Hashable a) => HashSet a -> HashSet a -> HashSet aSource

*O(n)* Difference of two sets. Return elements of the first set
not existing in the second.

intersection :: (Eq a, Hashable a) => HashSet a -> HashSet a -> HashSet aSource

*O(n)* Intersection of two sets. Return elements present in both
the first set and the second.

# Folds

foldl' :: (a -> b -> a) -> a -> HashSet b -> aSource

*O(n)* Reduce this set by applying a binary operator to all
elements, using the given starting value (typically the
left-identity of the operator). Each application of the operator
is evaluated before before using the result in the next
application. This function is strict in the starting value.

foldr :: (b -> a -> a) -> a -> HashSet b -> aSource

*O(n)* Reduce this set by applying a binary operator to all
elements, using the given starting value (typically the
right-identity of the operator).

# Filter

filter :: (a -> Bool) -> HashSet a -> HashSet aSource

*O(n)* Filter this set by retaining only elements satisfying a
predicate.
