Collections and Data Structures

Iteration

Sequential iteration is implemented by the iterate function. The general for loop:

for i in iter   # or  "for i = iter"
# body
end

is translated into:

next = iterate(iter)
while next !== nothing
(i, state) = next
# body
next = iterate(iter, state)
end

The state object may be anything, and should be chosen appropriately for each iterable type. See the manual section on the iteration interface for more details about defining a custom iterable type.

Base.iterateFunction
iterate(iter [, state]) -> Union{Nothing, Tuple{Any, Any}}

Advance the iterator to obtain the next element. If no elements remain, nothing should be returned. Otherwise, a 2-tuple of the next element and the new iteration state should be returned.

source
Base.IteratorSizeType
IteratorSize(itertype::Type) -> IteratorSize

Given the type of an iterator, return one of the following values:

• SizeUnknown() if the length (number of elements) cannot be determined in advance.
• HasLength() if there is a fixed, finite length.
• HasShape{N}() if there is a known length plus a notion of multidimensional shape (as for an array). In this case N should give the number of dimensions, and the axes function is valid for the iterator.
• IsInfinite() if the iterator yields values forever.

The default value (for iterators that do not define this function) is HasLength(). This means that most iterators are assumed to implement length.

This trait is generally used to select between algorithms that pre-allocate space for their result, and algorithms that resize their result incrementally.

julia> Base.IteratorSize(1:5)
Base.HasShape{1}()

julia> Base.IteratorSize((2,3))
Base.HasLength()
source
Base.IteratorEltypeType
IteratorEltype(itertype::Type) -> IteratorEltype

Given the type of an iterator, return one of the following values:

• EltypeUnknown() if the type of elements yielded by the iterator is not known in advance.
• HasEltype() if the element type is known, and eltype would return a meaningful value.

HasEltype() is the default, since iterators are assumed to implement eltype.

This trait is generally used to select between algorithms that pre-allocate a specific type of result, and algorithms that pick a result type based on the types of yielded values.

Constructors and Types

Base.OrdinalRangeType
OrdinalRange{T, S} <: AbstractRange{T}

Supertype for ordinal ranges with elements of type T with spacing(s) of type S. The steps should be always-exact multiples of oneunit, and T should be a "discrete" type, which cannot have values smaller than oneunit. For example, Integer or Date types would qualify, whereas Float64 would not (since this type can represent values smaller than oneunit(Float64). UnitRange, StepRange, and other types are subtypes of this.

source
Base.StepRangeType
StepRange{T, S} <: OrdinalRange{T, S}

Ranges with elements of type T with spacing of type S. The step between each element is constant, and the range is defined in terms of a start and stop of type T and a step of type S. Neither T nor S should be floating point types. The syntax a:b:c with b > 1 and a, b, and c all integers creates a StepRange.

Examples

julia> collect(StepRange(1, Int8(2), 10))
5-element Array{Int64,1}:
1
3
5
7
9

julia> typeof(StepRange(1, Int8(2), 10))
StepRange{Int64,Int8}

julia> typeof(1:3:6)
StepRange{Int64,Int64}
source
Base.UnitRangeType
UnitRange{T<:Real}

A range parameterized by a start and stop of type T, filled with elements spaced by 1 from start until stop is exceeded. The syntax a:b with a and b both Integers creates a UnitRange.

Examples

julia> collect(UnitRange(2.3, 5.2))
3-element Array{Float64,1}:
2.3
3.3
4.3

julia> typeof(1:10)
UnitRange{Int64}
source
Base.LinRangeType
LinRange{T}

A range with len linearly spaced elements between its start and stop. The size of the spacing is controlled by len, which must be an Int.

Examples

julia> LinRange(1.5, 5.5, 9)
9-element LinRange{Float64}:
1.5,2.0,2.5,3.0,3.5,4.0,4.5,5.0,5.5

Compared to using range, directly constructing a LinRange should have less overhead but won't try to correct for floating point errors:

julia> collect(range(-0.1, 0.3, length=5))
5-element Array{Float64,1}:
-0.1
0.0
0.1
0.2
0.3

julia> collect(LinRange(-0.1, 0.3, 5))
5-element Array{Float64,1}:
-0.1
-1.3877787807814457e-17
0.09999999999999999
0.19999999999999998
0.3

General Collections

Base.isemptyFunction
isempty(collection) -> Bool

Determine whether a collection is empty (has no elements).

Examples

julia> isempty([])
true

julia> isempty([1 2 3])
false
source
isempty(condition)

Return true if no tasks are waiting on the condition, false otherwise.

source
Base.empty!Function
empty!(collection) -> collection

Remove all elements from a collection.

Examples

julia> A = Dict("a" => 1, "b" => 2)
Dict{String,Int64} with 2 entries:
"b" => 2
"a" => 1

julia> empty!(A);

julia> A
Dict{String,Int64}()
source
Base.lengthFunction
length(collection) -> Integer

Return the number of elements in the collection.

Use lastindex to get the last valid index of an indexable collection.

Examples

julia> length(1:5)
5

julia> length([1, 2, 3, 4])
4

julia> length([1 2; 3 4])
4

Iterable Collections

Base.inFunction
in(item, collection) -> Bool
∈(item, collection) -> Bool
∋(collection, item) -> Bool

Determine whether an item is in the given collection, in the sense that it is == to one of the values generated by iterating over the collection. Returns a Bool value, except if item is missing or collection contains missing but not item, in which case missing is returned (three-valued logic, matching the behavior of any and ==).

Some collections follow a slightly different definition. For example, Sets check whether the item isequal to one of the elements. Dicts look for key=>value pairs, and the key is compared using isequal. To test for the presence of a key in a dictionary, use haskey or k in keys(dict). For these collections, the result is always a Bool and never missing.

To determine whether an item is not in a given collection, see :∉. You may also negate the in by doing !(a in b) which is logically similar to "not in".

When broadcasting with in.(items, collection) or items .∈ collection, both item and collection are broadcasted over, which is often not what is intended. For example, if both arguments are vectors (and the dimensions match), the result is a vector indicating whether each value in collection items is in the value at the corresponding position in collection. To get a vector indicating whether each value in items is in collection, wrap collection in a tuple or a Ref like this: in.(items, Ref(collection)) or items .∈ Ref(collection).

Examples

julia> a = 1:3:20
1:3:19

julia> 4 in a
true

julia> 5 in a
false

julia> missing in [1, 2]
missing

julia> 1 in [2, missing]
missing

julia> 1 in [1, missing]
true

julia> missing in Set([1, 2])
false

julia> !(21 in a)
true

julia> !(19 in a)
false

julia> [1, 2] .∈ [2, 3]
2-element BitArray{1}:
0
0

julia> [1, 2] .∈ ([2, 3],)
2-element BitArray{1}:
0
1
source
Base.:∉Function
∉(item, collection) -> Bool
∌(collection, item) -> Bool

Negation of ∈ and ∋, i.e. checks that item is not in collection.

When broadcasting with items .∉ collection, both item and collection are broadcasted over, which is often not what is intended. For example, if both arguments are vectors (and the dimensions match), the result is a vector indicating whether each value in collection items is not in the value at the corresponding position in collection. To get a vector indicating whether each value in items is not in collection, wrap collection in a tuple or a Ref like this: items .∉ Ref(collection).

Examples

julia> 1 ∉ 2:4
true

julia> 1 ∉ 1:3
false

julia> [1, 2] .∉ [2, 3]
2-element BitArray{1}:
1

source
Base.eltypeFunction
eltype(type)

Determine the type of the elements generated by iterating a collection of the given type. For dictionary types, this will be a Pair{KeyType,ValType}. The definition eltype(x) = eltype(typeof(x)) is provided for convenience so that instances can be passed instead of types. However the form that accepts a type argument should be defined for new types.

Examples

julia> eltype(fill(1f0, (2,2)))
Float32

julia> eltype(fill(0x1, (2,2)))
UInt8
source
Base.indexinFunction
indexin(a, b)

Return an array containing the first index in b for each value in a that is a member of b. The output array contains nothing wherever a is not a member of b.

Examples

julia> a = ['a', 'b', 'c', 'b', 'd', 'a'];

julia> b = ['a', 'b', 'c'];

julia> indexin(a, b)
6-element Array{Union{Nothing, Int64},1}:

source
unique(f, itr)

Returns an array containing one value from itr for each unique value produced by f applied to elements of itr.

source
unique(A::AbstractArray; dims::Int)

Return unique regions of A along dimension dims.

Examples

source
Base.unique!Function
unique!(f, A::AbstractVector)

Selects one value from A for each unique value produced by f applied to elements of A , then return the modified A.

Julia 1.1

This method is available as of Julia 1.1.

Examples

julia> unique!(x -> x^2, [1, -1, 3, -3, 4])
3-element Array{Int64,1}:

2-element Array{Int64,1}:
2
3
source
unique!(A::AbstractVector)

Remove duplicate items as determined by isequal, then return the modified A. unique! will return the elements of A in the order that they occur. If you do not care about the order of the returned data, then calling (sort!(A); unique!(A)) will be much more efficient as long as the elements of A can be sorted.

Examples

julia> unique!([1, 1, 1])
1-element Array{Int64,1}:
1

julia> A = [7, 3, 2, 3, 7, 5];

julia> unique!(A)

julia> allunique([a, a])
false
source
Base.reduceMethod
reduce(op, itr; [init])

Reduce the given collection itr with the given binary operator op. If provided, the initial value init must be a neutral element for op that will be returned for empty collections. It is unspecified whether init is used for non-empty collections.

For empty collections, providing init will be necessary, except for some special cases (e.g. when op is one of +, *, max, min, &, |) when Julia can determine the neutral element of op.

Reductions for certain commonly-used operators may have special implementations, and should be used instead: maximum(itr), minimum(itr), sum(itr), prod(itr), any(itr), all(itr).

The associativity of the reduction is implementation dependent. This means that you can't use non-associative operations like - because it is undefined whether reduce(-,[1,2,3]) should be evaluated as (1-2)-3 or 1-(2-3). Use foldl or foldr instead for guaranteed left or right associativity.

Some operations accumulate error. Parallelism will be easier if the reduction can be executed in groups. Future versions of Julia might change the algorithm. Note that the elements are not reordered if you use an ordered collection.

Examples

julia> reduce(*, [2; 3; 4])
24

julia> reduce(*, [2; 3; 4]; init=-1)
-24
source
Base.foldlMethod
foldl(op, itr; [init])

Like reduce, but with guaranteed left associativity. If provided, the keyword argument init will be used exactly once. In general, it will be necessary to provide init to work with empty collections.

Examples

julia> foldl(=>, 1:4)
((1 => 2) => 3) => 4

julia> foldl(=>, 1:4; init=0)
(((0 => 1) => 2) => 3) => 4
source
Base.foldrMethod
foldr(op, itr; [init])

Like reduce, but with guaranteed right associativity. If provided, the keyword argument init will be used exactly once. In general, it will be necessary to provide init to work with empty collections.

julia> foldr(=>, 1:4)
1 => (2 => (3 => 4))

julia> foldr(=>, 1:4; init=0)
1 => (2 => (3 => (4 => 0)))

source
Base.sumFunction
sum(f, itr)

Sum the results of calling function f on each element of itr.

The return type is Int for signed integers of less than system word size, and UInt for unsigned integers of less than system word size. For all other arguments, a common return type is found to which all arguments are promoted.

Examples

julia> sum(abs2, [2; 3; 4])

julia> sum(Int8[100, 28])
128

julia> reduce(+, Int8[100, 28])
-128

In the former case, the integers are widened to system word size and therefore the result is 128. In the latter case, no such widening happens and integer overflow results in -128.

Base.map!Function
map!(function, destination, collection...)

Like map, but stores the result in destination rather than a new collection. destination must be at least as large as the first collection.

map!(f, values(dict::AbstractDict))

Modifies dict by transforming each value from val to f(val). Note that the type of dict cannot be changed: if f(val) is not an instance of the value type of dict then it will be converted to the value type if possible and otherwise raise an error.

Julia 1.2

map!(f, values(dict::AbstractDict)) requires Julia 1.2 or later.

Examples

julia> d = Dict(:a => 1, :b => 2)
Dict{Symbol,Int64} with 2 entries:
:a => 1
:b => 2

0
1
source
Base.mapreduceMethod
mapreduce(f, op, itrs...; [init])

Apply function f to each element(s) in itrs, and then reduce the result using the binary function op. If provided, init must be a neutral element for op that will be returned for empty collections. It is unspecified whether init is used for non-empty collections. In general, it will be necessary to provide init to work with empty collections.

mapreduce is functionally equivalent to calling reduce(op, map(f, itr); init=init), but will in general execute faster since no intermediate collection needs to be created. See documentation for reduce and map.

Julia 1.2

mapreduce with multiple iterators requires Julia 1.2 or later.

Examples

julia> mapreduce(x->x^2, +, [1:3;]) # == 1 + 4 + 9
14

The associativity of the reduction is implementation-dependent. Additionally, some implementations may reuse the return value of f for elements that appear multiple times in itr. Use mapfoldl or mapfoldr instead for guaranteed left or right associativity and invocation of f for every value.

Base.replaceMethod
replace(A, old_new::Pair...; [count::Integer])

Return a copy of collection A where, for each pair old=>new in old_new, all occurrences of old are replaced by new. Equality is determined using isequal. If count is specified, then replace at most count occurrences in total.

Fully implemented by:

Partially implemented by:

Dictionaries

Dict is the standard dictionary. Its implementation uses hash as the hashing function for the key, and isequal to determine equality. Define these two functions for custom types to override how they are stored in a hash table.

IdDict is a special hash table where the keys are always object identities.

WeakKeyDict is a hash table implementation where the keys are weak references to objects, and thus may be garbage collected even when referenced in a hash table. Like Dict it uses hash for hashing and isequal for equality, unlike Dict it does not convert keys on insertion.

Dicts can be created by passing pair objects constructed with => to a Dict constructor: Dict("A"=>1, "B"=>2). This call will attempt to infer type information from the keys and values (i.e. this example creates a Dict{String, Int64}). To explicitly specify types use the syntax Dict{KeyType,ValueType}(...). For example, Dict{String,Int32}("A"=>1, "B"=>2).

Dictionaries may also be created with generators. For example, Dict(i => f(i) for i = 1:10).

Given a dictionary D, the syntax D[x] returns the value of key x (if it exists) or throws an error, and D[x] = y stores the key-value pair x => y in D (replacing any existing value for the key x). Multiple arguments to D[...] are converted to tuples; for example, the syntax D[x,y] is equivalent to D[(x,y)], i.e. it refers to the value keyed by the tuple (x,y).

Base.DictType
Dict([itr])

Dict{K,V}() constructs a hash table with keys of type K and values of type V. Keys are compared with isequal and hashed with hash.

Given a single iterable argument, constructs a Dict whose key-value pairs are taken from 2-tuples (key,value) generated by the argument.

Examples

julia> Dict([("A", 1), ("B", 2)])
Dict{String,Int64} with 2 entries:
"B" => 2
"A" => 1

Alternatively, a sequence of pair arguments may be passed.

julia> Dict("A"=>1, "B"=>2)
Dict{String,Int64} with 2 entries:
"B" => 2
"A" => 1
source
Base.IdDictType
IdDict([itr])

IdDict{K,V}() constructs a hash table using object-id as hash and === as equality with keys of type K and values of type V.

See Dict for further help.

source
Base.WeakKeyDictType
WeakKeyDict([itr])

WeakKeyDict() constructs a hash table where the keys are weak references to objects which may be garbage collected even when referenced in a hash table.

See Dict for further help. Note, unlike Dict, WeakKeyDict does not convert keys on insertion.

source
Base.ImmutableDictType
ImmutableDict

ImmutableDict is a dictionary implemented as an immutable linked list, which is optimal for small dictionaries that are constructed over many individual insertions. Note that it is not possible to remove a value, although it can be partially overridden and hidden by inserting a new value with the same key.

ImmutableDict(KV::Pair)

Create a new entry in the ImmutableDict for a key => value pair

• use (key => value) in dict to see if this particular combination is in the properties set
• use get(dict, key, default) to retrieve the most recent value for a particular key

For an iterator or collection that has keys and values, return an iterator over the values. This function simply returns its argument by default, since the elements of a general iterator are normally considered its "values".

Examples

julia> d = Dict("a"=>1, "b"=>2);

julia> values(d)
Base.ValueIterator for a Dict{String,Int64} with 2 entries. Values:
2
1

julia> values([2])
1-element Array{Int64,1}:
2
source
values(a::AbstractDict)

Return an iterator over all values in a collection. collect(values(a)) returns an array of values. When the values are stored internally in a hash table, as is the case for Dict, the order in which they are returned may vary. But keys(a) and values(a) both iterate a and return the elements in the same order.

Examples

julia> D = Dict('a'=>2, 'b'=>3)
Dict{Char,Int64} with 2 entries:
'a' => 2
'b' => 3

julia> collect(values(D))
2-element Array{Int64,1}:
2
3
source
Base.pairsFunction
pairs(IndexLinear(), A)
pairs(IndexCartesian(), A)
pairs(IndexStyle(A), A)

An iterator that accesses each element of the array A, returning i => x, where i is the index for the element and x = A[i]. Identical to pairs(A), except that the style of index can be selected. Also similar to enumerate(A), except i will be a valid index for A, while enumerate always counts from 1 regardless of the indices of A.

Specifying IndexLinear() ensures that i will be an integer; specifying IndexCartesian() ensures that i will be a CartesianIndex; specifying IndexStyle(A) chooses whichever has been defined as the native indexing style for array A.

Mutation of the bounds of the underlying array will invalidate this iterator.

Examples

julia> A = ["a" "d"; "b" "e"; "c" "f"];

julia> for (index, value) in pairs(IndexStyle(A), A)
println("$index$value")
end
1 a
2 b
3 c
4 d
5 e
6 f

julia> S = view(A, 1:2, :);

julia> for (index, value) in pairs(IndexStyle(S), S)
println("$index$value")
end
CartesianIndex(1, 1) a
CartesianIndex(2, 1) b
CartesianIndex(1, 2) d
CartesianIndex(2, 2) e

See also: IndexStyle, axes.

source
pairs(collection)

Return an iterator over key => value pairs for any collection that maps a set of keys to a set of values. This includes arrays, where the keys are the array indices.

source
Base.mergeFunction
merge(d::AbstractDict, others::AbstractDict...)

Construct a merged collection from the given collections. If necessary, the types of the resulting collection will be promoted to accommodate the types of the merged collections. If the same key is present in another collection, the value for that key will be the value it has in the last collection listed.

Examples

julia> a = Dict("foo" => 0.0, "bar" => 42.0)
Dict{String,Float64} with 2 entries:
"bar" => 42.0
"foo" => 0.0

julia> b = Dict("baz" => 17, "bar" => 4711)
Dict{String,Int64} with 2 entries:
"bar" => 4711
"baz" => 17

julia> merge(a, b)
Dict{String,Float64} with 3 entries:
"bar" => 4711.0
"baz" => 17.0
"foo" => 0.0

julia> merge(b, a)
Dict{String,Float64} with 3 entries:
"bar" => 42.0
"baz" => 17.0
"foo" => 0.0
source
merge(a::NamedTuple, bs::NamedTuple...)

Construct a new named tuple by merging two or more existing ones, in a left-associative manner. Merging proceeds left-to-right, between pairs of named tuples, and so the order of fields present in both the leftmost and rightmost named tuples take the same position as they are found in the leftmost named tuple. However, values are taken from matching fields in the rightmost named tuple that contains that field. Fields present in only the rightmost named tuple of a pair are appended at the end. A fallback is implemented for when only a single named tuple is supplied, with signature merge(a::NamedTuple).

Julia 1.1

Merging 3 or more NamedTuple requires at least Julia 1.1.

Examples

julia> merge((a=1, b=2, c=3), (b=4, d=5))
(a = 1, b = 4, c = 3, d = 5)
julia> merge((a=1, b=2), (b=3, c=(d=1,)), (c=(d=2,),))
(a = 1, b = 3, c = (d = 2,))
source
merge(a::NamedTuple, iterable)

Interpret an iterable of key-value pairs as a named tuple, and perform a merge.

julia> merge((a=1, b=2, c=3), [:b=>4, :d=>5])
(a = 1, b = 4, c = 3, d = 5)
source
Base.mergewithFunction
mergewith(combine, d::AbstractDict, others::AbstractDict...)
mergewith(combine)
merge(combine, d::AbstractDict, others::AbstractDict...)

Construct a merged collection from the given collections. If necessary, the types of the resulting collection will be promoted to accommodate the types of the merged collections. Values with the same key will be combined using the combiner function. The curried form mergewith(combine) returns the function (args...) -> mergewith(combine, args...).

Method merge(combine::Union{Function,Type}, args...) as an alias of mergewith(combine, args...) is still available for backward compatibility.

Julia 1.5

mergewith requires Julia 1.5 or later.

Examples

julia> a = Dict("foo" => 0.0, "bar" => 42.0)
Dict{String,Float64} with 2 entries:
"bar" => 42.0
"foo" => 0.0

julia> b = Dict("baz" => 17, "bar" => 4711)
Dict{String,Int64} with 2 entries:
"bar" => 4711
"baz" => 17

julia> mergewith(+, a, b)
Dict{String,Float64} with 3 entries:
"bar" => 4753.0
"baz" => 17.0
"foo" => 0.0

julia> ans == mergewith(+)(a, b)

mergewith!(combine, d::AbstractDict, others::AbstractDict...) -> d
mergewith!(combine)
merge!(combine, d::AbstractDict, others::AbstractDict...) -> d

Update collection with pairs from the other collections. Values with the same key will be combined using the combiner function. The curried form mergewith!(combine) returns the function (args...) -> mergewith!(combine, args...).

Method merge!(combine::Union{Function,Type}, args...) as an alias of mergewith!(combine, args...) is still available for backward compatibility.

Julia 1.5

mergewith! requires Julia 1.5 or later.
