RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 38521530 LA English T1 Purely functional data structures A1 Okasaki, Chris., PB Cambridge University Press PP Cambridge, U.K.; New York YR 1998 SN 0521631246 9780521631242 0521663504 9780521663502 AB "Most books on data structures assume an imperative language like C or C++. However, data structures for these languages do not always translate well to functional languages such as Standard ML, Haskell, or Scheme. This book describes data structures from the point of view of functional languages, with examples, and presents design techniques so that programmers can develop their own functional data structures. It includes both classical data structures, such as red-black trees and binomial queues, and a host of new data structures developed exclusively for functional languages. All source code is given in Standard ML and Haskell, and most of the programs can easily be adapted to other functional languages." "This handy reference for professional programmers working with functional languages can also be used as a tutorial or for self-study."--Jacket.
