vector-rotcev alternatives and similar packages
Based on the "vector" category
Do you think we are missing an alternative of vector-rotcev or a related project?
A wrapper for an arbitrary
Vector with O(1)
reverse. Instead of creating a copy, it just flips a flag, which inverts indexing. Imagine it as a vector with a switch between little-endianness and big-endianness.
Let us have a vector of data
vec :: Vector Int, which is manipulated via
Data.Vector.Generic-based API. You can wrap it into
Forward vec :: Rotcev Vector Int and leave everything else unchanged, because
Rotcev Vector Int still has all
Vector instances. Then apply
reverse (Forward vec) :: Rotcev Vector Int, which effectively reverses the vector in O(1) time and space. Internally instead of actual reversing,
reverse just provides a view (or a lens) with an inverted order of indexing, which affects all
> vec = Data.Vector.Generic.fromList [0..100] :: Data.Vector.Vector Int > cev = reverse (Forward vec) :: Rotcev Data.Vector.Vector Int > cev Data.Vector.Generic.! 10 90
In a mutable setting you can freely manipulate original and reversed vectors simultaneously, using
> Control.Monad.ST.runST $ do vec <- Data.Vector.Generic.Mutable.replicate 3 0.0 let cev = mreverse vec Data.Vector.Generic.Mutable.write vec 0 1.0 Data.Vector.Generic.Mutable.write cev 0 2.0 unRotcev <$> Data.Vector.Generic.freeze vec :: Data.Vector.Vector Double [1.0,0.0,2.0]
This library works for any flavor of
Vector: boxed, unboxed, storable, whatever.
