2010-08-15Add treap implementationJason Evans
Provide macros to generate a type-specific treap implementation and various functions to operate on it. It uses obj_pool.h to store memory nodes in a treap. Previously committed nodes are never removed from the pool; after any *_commit operation, it is assumed (correctly, in the case of svn-fast-export) that someone else must care about them. Treaps provide a memory-efficient binary search tree structure. Insertion/deletion/search are about as about as fast in the average case as red-black trees and the chances of worst-case behavior are vanishingly small, thanks to (pseudo-)randomness. The bad worst-case behavior is a small price to pay, given that treaps are much simpler to implement. >From http://www.canonware.com/download/trp/trp_hash/trp.h [db: Altered to reference nodes by offset from a common base pointer] [db: Bob Jenkins' hashing implementation dropped for Knuth's] [db: Methods unnecessary for search and insert dropped] [rr: Squelched compiler warnings] [db: Added support for immutable treap nodes] [jn: Reintroduced treap_nsearch(); with tests] Signed-off-by: David Barr <david.barr@cordelta.com> Signed-off-by: Ramkumar Ramachandra <artagnon@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Jonathan Nieder <jrnieder@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
