String sets

include Set.S with type elt := string and type t := set
val empty : set

The empty set.

val is_empty : set -> bool

Test whether a set is empty or not.

val mem : string -> set -> bool

mem x s tests whether x belongs to the set s.

val add : string -> set -> set

add x s returns a set containing all elements of s, plus x. If x was already in s, s is returned unchanged (the result of the function is then physically equal to s).

  • before 4.03

    Physical equality was not ensured.

val singleton : string -> set

singleton x returns the one-element set containing only x.

val remove : string -> set -> set

remove x s returns a set containing all elements of s, except x. If x was not in s, s is returned unchanged (the result of the function is then physically equal to s).

  • before 4.03

    Physical equality was not ensured.

val union : set -> set -> set

Set union.

val inter : set -> set -> set

Set intersection.

val diff : set -> set -> set

Set difference.

val compare : set -> set -> int

Total ordering between sets. Can be used as the ordering function for doing sets of sets.

val equal : set -> set -> bool

equal s1 s2 tests whether the sets s1 and s2 are equal, that is, contain equal elements.

val subset : set -> set -> bool

subset s1 s2 tests whether the set s1 is a subset of the set s2.

val iter : ( string -> unit ) -> set -> unit

iter f s applies f in turn to all elements of s. The elements of s are presented to f in increasing order with respect to the ordering over the type of the elements.

val map : ( string -> string ) -> set -> set

map f s is the set whose elements are f a0,f a1... f aN, where a0,a1...aN are the elements of s.

The elements are passed to f in increasing order with respect to the ordering over the type of the elements.

If no element of s is changed by f, s is returned unchanged. (If each output of f is physically equal to its input, the returned set is physically equal to s.)

  • since 4.04.0
val fold : ( string -> 'a -> 'a ) -> set -> 'a -> 'a

fold f s a computes (f xN ... (f x2 (f x1 a))...), where x1 ... xN are the elements of s, in increasing order.

val for_all : ( string -> bool ) -> set -> bool

for_all p s checks if all elements of the set satisfy the predicate p.

val exists : ( string -> bool ) -> set -> bool

exists p s checks if at least one element of the set satisfies the predicate p.

val filter : ( string -> bool ) -> set -> set

filter p s returns the set of all elements in s that satisfy predicate p. If p satisfies every element in s, s is returned unchanged (the result of the function is then physically equal to s).

  • before 4.03

    Physical equality was not ensured.

val partition : ( string -> bool ) -> set -> set * set

partition p s returns a pair of sets (s1, s2), where s1 is the set of all the elements of s that satisfy the predicate p, and s2 is the set of all the elements of s that do not satisfy p.

val cardinal : set -> int

Return the number of elements of a set.

val elements : set -> string list

Return the list of all elements of the given set. The returned list is sorted in increasing order with respect to the ordering Ord.compare, where Ord is the argument given to Set.Make.

val min_elt_opt : set -> string option

Return the smallest element of the given set (with respect to the Ord.compare ordering), or None if the set is empty.

  • since 4.05
val max_elt_opt : set -> string option

Same as Set.S.min_elt_opt, but returns the largest element of the given set.

  • since 4.05
val choose_opt : set -> string option

Return one element of the given set, or None if the set is empty. Which element is chosen is unspecified, but equal elements will be chosen for equal sets.

  • since 4.05
val split : string -> set -> set * bool * set

split x s returns a triple (l, present, r), where l is the set of elements of s that are strictly less than x; r is the set of elements of s that are strictly greater than x; present is false if s contains no element equal to x, or true if s contains an element equal to x.

val find_opt : string -> set -> string option

find_opt x s returns the element of s equal to x (according to Ord.compare), or None if no such element exists.

  • since 4.05
val find_first : ( string -> bool ) -> set -> string

find_first f s, where f is a monotonically increasing function, returns the lowest element e of s such that f e, or raises Not_found if no such element exists.

For example, find_first (fun e -> Ord.compare e x >= 0) s will return the first element e of s where Ord.compare e x >= 0 (intuitively: e >= x), or raise Not_found if x is greater than any element of s.

  • since 4.05
val find_first_opt : ( string -> bool ) -> set -> string option

find_first_opt f s, where f is a monotonically increasing function, returns an option containing the lowest element e of s such that f e, or None if no such element exists.

  • since 4.05
val find_last : ( string -> bool ) -> set -> string

find_last f s, where f is a monotonically decreasing function, returns the highest element e of s such that f e, or raises Not_found if no such element exists.

  • since 4.05
val find_last_opt : ( string -> bool ) -> set -> string option

find_last_opt f s, where f is a monotonically decreasing function, returns an option containing the highest element e of s such that f e, or None if no such element exists.

  • since 4.05
type t = set
val min_elt : set -> string option

Exception safe Set.S.min_elt.

val get_min_elt : set -> string

get_min_elt is like min_elt but

  • raises Invalid_argument

    on the empty set.

val max_elt : set -> string option

Exception safe Set.S.max_elt.

val get_max_elt : set -> string

get_max_elt is like max_elt but

  • raises Invalid_argument

    on the empty set.

val choose : set -> string option

Exception safe Set.S.choose.

val get_any_elt : set -> string

get_any_elt is like choose but

  • raises Invalid_argument

    on the empty set.

val find : string -> set -> string option

Exception safe Set.S.find.

val get : string -> set -> string

get is like Set.S.find but

  • raises Invalid_argument

    if elt is not in s.

val of_list : string list -> set

of_list ss is a set from the list ss.

val of_stdlib_set : Set.Make(String).t -> set

of_stdlib_set s is a set from the stdlib-compatible set s.

val to_stdlib_set : set -> Set.Make(String).t

to_stdlib_set s is the stdlib-compatible set equivalent to s.

val pp : ?sep:( Format.formatter -> unit -> unit ) -> ( Format.formatter -> string -> unit ) -> Format.formatter -> set -> unit

pp ~sep pp_elt ppf ss formats the elements of ss on ppf. Each element is formatted with pp_elt and elements are separated by ~sep (defaults to Format.pp_print_cut. If the set is empty leaves ppf untouched.

val dump : Format.formatter -> set -> unit

dump ppf ss prints an unspecified representation of ss on ppf.
