Tuple data structure

Tuple data structure #

There are two versions of this data structure:

  • mutable [Tuple2], [Tuple3]...
  • persistent [PersistentTuple2], [PersistentTuple3]...

Usage example #

final t = new Tuple2<String, int>('a', 10);

print(t.i1); // prints 'a'
print(t.i2); // prints '10'

Persistent Tuple #

In computing, a persistent data structure is a data structure that always preserves the previous version of itself when it is modified. Such data structures are effectively immutable, as their operations do not (visibly) update the structure in-place, but instead always yield a new updated structure. (A persistent data structure is not a data structure committed to persistent storage, such as a disk; this is a different and unrelated sense of the word "persistent.")


final t1 = const PersistentTuple2<String, int>('a', 10);
final t2 = t1.setI1('c');
// t2 is a new [PersistentTuple2] object with i1 is 'c' and i2 is 10.
