SSSMismatch | Error. |

SSSStrip (ReversedSuffix a) | "Negative string" to remove from end. List may be empty. |

## Finding overlap

findOverlap :: forall a. Eq a => [a] -> [a] -> (Int, Int) Source #

Find out whether the first string `xs`

has a suffix that is a prefix of the second string `ys`

.
So, basically, find the overlap where the strings can be glued together.
Returns the index where the overlap starts and the length of the overlap.
The length of the overlap plus the index is the length of the first string.
Note that in the worst case, the empty overlap `(length xs,0)`

is returned.

# Groups and chunks

wordsBy :: (a -> Bool) -> [a] -> [[a]] Source #

Split a list into sublists. Generalisation of the prelude function
`words`

.
O(n).

words xs == wordsBy isSpace xs

chopWhen :: forall a. (a -> Bool) -> [a] -> [[a]] Source #

Chop a list at the positions when the predicate holds. Contrary to
`wordsBy`

, consecutive separator elements will result in an empty segment
in the result.
O(n).

intercalate [x] (chopWhen (== x) xs) == xs

# List as sets

hasElem :: Ord a => [a] -> a -> Bool Source #

Check membership for the same list often.
Use partially applied to create membership predicate
`hasElem xs :: a -> Bool`

.

- First time:
`O(n log n)`

in the worst case. - Subsequently:
`O(log n)`

.

Specification: `hasElem xs == (`

.`elem`

xs)

sorted :: Ord a => [a] -> Bool Source #

Check whether a list is sorted. O(n).

Assumes that the `Ord`

instance implements a partial order.

distinct :: Eq a => [a] -> Bool Source #

Check whether all elements in a list are distinct from each other.
Assumes that the `Eq`

instance stands for an equivalence relation.

O(n²) in the worst case `distinct xs == True`

.

fastDistinct :: Ord a => [a] -> Bool Source #

duplicates :: Ord a => [a] -> [a] Source #

Returns an (arbitrary) representative for each list element that occurs more than once. O(n log n).

allDuplicates :: Ord a => [a] -> [a] Source #

Remove the first representative for each list element. Thus, returns all duplicate copies. O(n log n).

`allDuplicates xs == sort $ xs \ nub xs`

.

nubAndDuplicatesOn :: Ord b => (a -> b) -> [a] -> ([a], [a]) Source #

Partition a list into first and later occurrences of elements (modulo some quotient given by a representation function).

Time: O(n log n).

Specification:

nubAndDuplicatesOn f xs = (ys, xs List.\\ ys) where ys = nubOn f xs

nubOn :: Ord b => (a -> b) -> [a] -> [a] Source #

Efficient variant of `nubBy`

for lists, using a set to store already seen elements.
O(n log n)

Specification:

nubOn f xs == 'nubBy' ((==) `'on'` f) xs.

uniqOn :: Ord b => (a -> b) -> [a] -> [a] Source #

Efficient variant of `nubBy`

for finite lists.
O(n log n).

uniqOn f == 'List.sortBy' (compare `'on'` f) . 'nubBy' ((==) `'on'` f)

If there are several elements with the same `f`

-representative,
the first of these is kept.

allEqual :: Eq a => [a] -> Bool Source #

Checks if all the elements in the list are equal. Assumes that
the `Eq`

instance stands for an equivalence relation.
O(n).

# Zipping

zipWith' :: (a -> b -> c) -> [a] -> [b] -> Maybe [c] Source #

Requires both lists to have the same length. O(n).

Otherwise, `Nothing`

is returned.

zipWithKeepRest :: (a -> b -> b) -> [a] -> [b] -> [b] Source #

Like `zipWith`

but keep the rest of the second list as-is
(in case the second list is longer).
O(n).

zipWithKeepRest f as bs == zipWith f as bs ++ drop (length as) bs

# Unzipping

# Edit distance

editDistanceSpec :: Eq a => [a] -> [a] -> Int Source #

Implemented using tree recursion, don't run me at home! O(3^(min n m)).

editDistance :: forall a. Eq a => [a] -> [a] -> Int Source #

Implemented using dynamic programming and `Data.Array`

.
O(n*m).
