I think there's a far more important tradeoff that is being ignored here. My problem with association lists is not storage efficiency, it's access time.
I agree. I missed the justification for including association vectors. Why would anyone ever use such a data structure? If you really want it, use a vector of pairs, but even then it should be rare enough that there is no need to standardize such trivial and rarely-used functions. -- --Per Bothner per@xxxxxxxxxxx http://per.bothner.com/
