Description

Functions to remove duplicates from a list.

# Performance

To check the performance there was done a bunch of benchmarks. Benchmarks were made on lists of Ints and Texts. There were two types of list to use:

• Lists which consist of many different elements
• Lists which consist of many same elements

Here are some recommendations for usage of particular functions based on benchmarking results.

• hashNub is faster than ordNub when there're not so many different values in the list.
• hashNub is the fastest with Text.
• intNub is faster when you work with lists of Ints.
• intNubOn is fast with the lists of type that can have fixed number representations.
• sortNub has better performance than ordNub but should be used when sorting is also needed.
• unstableNub has better performance than hashNub but doesn't save the original order.
Synopsis

# Documentation

hashNub :: forall a. Hashable a => [a] -> [a] Source #

Like nub but runs in $$O(n \log_{16} n)$$ time and requires Hashable.

>>> hashNub [3, 3, 3, 2, 2, -1, 1]
[3,2,-1,1]


ordNub :: forall a. Ord a => [a] -> [a] Source #

Removes duplicate elements from a list, keeping only the first occurance of the element.

Like nub but runs in $$O(n \log n)$$ time and requires Ord.

>>> ordNub [3, 3, 3, 2, 2, -1, 1]
[3,2,-1,1]


ordNubOn :: forall b a. Ord b => (a -> b) -> [a] -> [a] Source #

Similar to ordNub but performs nub through the mapped list on the given function.

>>> ordNubOn (div 10) [3, 3, 3, 13, 2, 22, -1, 1, 66]
[3,13,22,-1,66]


Since: 1.0.0.0

intNub :: [Int] -> [Int] Source #

Removes duplicate elements from a list, keeping only the first occurance of the element.

Like nub but runs in $$O (n \min (n, int\_bits ))$$ time and requires Ord.

>>> intNub [3, 3, 3, 2, 2, -1, 1]
[3,2,-1,1]


Since: 1.0.0.0

intNubOn :: (a -> Int) -> [a] -> [a] Source #

Similar to intNub but works on lists of any types by performing "nubbing" through Ints.

>>> intNubOn fromEnum "ababbbcdaffee"
"abcdfe"


Since: 1.0.0.0

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

Like ordNub runs in $$O(n \log n)$$ but also sorts a list.

>>> sortNub [3, 3, 3, 2, 2, -1, 1]
[-1,1,2,3]


unstableNub :: Hashable a => [a] -> [a] Source #

Like hashNub runs in $$O(n \log_{16} n)$$ but has better performance; it doesn't save the order.

>>> unstableNub [3, 3, 3, 2, 2, -1, 1]
[1,2,3,-1]
