The tskiplist package

[ Tags: concurrency, data, lgpl, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package provides an implementation of a skip list in STM. A skip list is a probabilistic data structure with dictionary operations (similarly to Data.Map). In contrast to a balanced tree, a skip list does not need any rebalancing, which makes it particularly suitable for concurrent programming. See: William Pugh. Skip Lists: A Probabilistic Alternative to Balanced Trees.
