Module Ephemeron.GenHashTable

module GenHashTable: sig .. end

Hash tables on generic containers with notion of death and aliveness.

Define a hash table on generic containers which have a notion of "death" and aliveness. If a binding is dead the hash table can automatically remove it.

type equal = 
| ETrue
| EFalse
| EDead (*

the container is dead

module MakeSeeded: 
functor (H : sig
type t 


type 'a container 

contains keys and the associated data

val hash : int -> t -> int

same as Hashtbl.SeededHashedType

val equal : 'a container ->
t -> Ephemeron.GenHashTable.equal

equality predicate used to compare a key with the one in a container. Can return EDead if the keys in the container are dead

val create : t ->
'a -> 'a container

create key data creates a container from some initials keys and one data

val get_key : 'a container ->
t option

get_key cont returns the keys if they are all alive

val get_data : 'a container -> 'a option

get_data cont returns the data if it is alive

val set_key_data : 'a container ->
t -> 'a -> unit

set_key_data cont modifies the key and data

val check_key : 'a container -> bool

check_key cont checks if all the keys contained in the data are alive

Functor building an implementation of an hash table that use the container for keeping the information given
