Overview

The 'Algorithms and Containers' library is an effort to provide a set of commonly used

algorithms and containers to Ruby programmers.

This is a Google Summer of Code 2008 project

Written by Kanwei Li, mentored by Austin Ziegler

To avoid typing Containers::xxx to initialize containers, include the Containers module.

  require 'algorithms'
  include Containers

  tree = RBTreeMap.new

instead of:

  require 'algorithms'

  tree = Containers::RBTreeMap.new

Done so far:
* Heaps           - Containers::Heap, Containers::MaxHeap, Containers::MinHeap
* Priority Queue  - Containers::PriorityQueue
* Stack           - Containers::Stack
* Queue           - Containers::Queue
* Deque           - Containers::Deque, Containers::CDeque (C extension), Containers::RubyDeque
* Red-Black Trees - Containers::RBTreeMap, Containers::CRBTreeMap (C extension), Containers::RubyRBTreeMap
* Splay Trees     - Containers::SplayTreeMap
* Tries           - Containers::Trie
