The SGI STL implementation does contain a non-standard hash_map template; that would be a more appropriate comparison.

This made me think a bit further. Although I myself have never felt that the array implementation of Perl stands in my way (and I have never heard of anyone, who has ever done so, so it seems a one-fits-all solution), it would be pretty nice to be able to choose the type of your arrays in runtime. This way, you could choose the most appropriate data structure for your specific needs.

But, with the advent of Perl 6, you can do it. I imagine something along the lines of:

role List_a_la_STL_vector { ... multi method Num postcircumfix:<<[]>>( Num @self is constant : Num $index){ # return the $index element } ... } role List_a_la_STL_deque { ... multi method Num postcircumfix:<<[]>>( Num @self is constant : Num $index){ # return the $index element } ... } ... # use vector just like an STL vector my @vector does List_a_la_STL_vector; ... # use vector just like an STL deque my @deque does List_a_la_STL_deque;
This is a really perlish solution. You are not forced to step into the realms of computer science and be intimate with storage requirements and complexity of the underlying data stuctures, but if you do, you can be much more efficient.

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
