sets

Functions for Set Manipulation

Sets are collections of elements with no duplicate elements. The representation of a set is not defined.

This module provides exactly the same interface as the module ordsets but with a defined representation. One difference is that while this module considers two elements as different if they do not match (=:=), ordsets considers two elements as different if and only if they do not compare equal (==).

set() as returned by new/0

Types:

Set = set()

Returns a new empty set.

Types:

Set = term()

Returns true if Set is a set of elements, otherwise false.

Types:

Set = term()

Returns the number of elements in Set.

Types:

Set = set()

List = [term()]

Returns the elements of Set as a list.

Types:

List = [term()]

Set = set()

Returns an set of the elements in List.

is_element(Element, Set) -> bool()

Types:

Element = term()

Set = set()

Returns true if Element is an element of Set, otherwise false.

add_element(Element, Set1) -> Set2

Types:

Element = term()

Set1 = Set2 = set()

Returns a new set formed from Set1 with Element inserted.

del_element(Element, Set1) -> Set2

Types:

Element = term()

Set1 = Set2 = set()

Returns Set1, but with Element removed.

Types:

Set1 = Set2 = Set3 = set()

Returns the merged (union) set of Set1 and Set2.

Types:

SetList = [set()]

Set = set()

Returns the merged (union) set of the list of sets.

intersection(Set1, Set2) -> Set3

Types:

Set1 = Set2 = Set3 = set()

Returns the intersection of Set1 and Set2.

Types:

SetList = [set()]

Set = set()

Returns the intersection of the non-empty list of sets.

is_disjoint(Set1, Set2) -> bool()

Types:

Set1 = Set2 = set()

Returns true if Set1 and Set2 are disjoint (have no elements in common), and false otherwise.

Types:

Set1 = Set2 = Set3 = set()

Returns only the elements of Set1 which are not also elements of Set2.

is_subset(Set1, Set2) -> bool()

Types:

Set1 = Set2 = set()

Returns true when every element of Set1 is also a member of Set2, otherwise false.

fold(Function, Acc0, Set) -> Acc1

Types:

Function = fun (E, AccIn) -> AccOut

Acc0 = Acc1 = AccIn = AccOut = term()

Set = set()

Fold Function over every element in Set returning the final value of the accumulator.

Types:

Pred = fun (E) -> bool()

Set1 = Set2 = set()

Filter elements in Set1 with boolean function Fun.
