> True, and that name wouldnât help the user decide if they want to use it like âunorderedâ does - it actually obscures the function. But, Iâm actually starting to think that in this case âbucket_listâ might really be better â I was half joking when proposing, but âbucketsâ have their own analogy here from the real world and from implementations of hashed containers. They are often partially empty. You put stuff in and out of them. In hash buckets you skip over empty slots in the traversal. Buckets get allocated/deallocated as a unit. And itâs pithy ;0
Well, it's at least trying to describe the high-level structure of the
container. There's some snags, like items moving between
hash buckets if you rehash, but not between bucket_list buckets. So I
don't think this name describes the element stability
much better than the current one, or hive.
Toss a coin, Matthew.
