On dictionaries, for storing/getting key/value pairs...
I've finished doing my reading up on a whole variety of
implementations, solutions, and rationales. That inbetween real life
I've decided to avoid most of them, though, and make one that's wholly
my own! Use parts of the theory, skip the implementation! The
implementation I've chose can't work in an object oriented language
properly, it only applies well to low level languages like C, which
lets you talk in something slightly closer to the machine's real
Lets see how it goes. Assuming my understanding of the tests that I've
read are correct, and the tests apply usefully to Macs (they were on
MIPS machines, whatever that is, and they ran Linux) the performance
should be good.
I'm not sure how long it will take to write and debug, as I'm really
making this up for myself, and it's using a complex structure, but it
could be from 1 to 3 days.
If the results are reasonable, or good, I'll ask about to see if anyone
has done what I've done, and if not, I may write a detailed
description, and hopefully someone may take interest to put it in a
place where other people may learn about the TheoTrie.
