Hash maps don't define opIn and opIn_r

Reported by: Andrej08 Assigned to: schveiguy (accepted)
Priority: minor Milestone: 2.0
Component: code Version: 2.0c

Is there any reason why Hashes in dcollections shouldn't define opIn/opIn_r? It would make them more natural to use and it would be easier to replace the use of built-in hashes without having to change the user code too much.

  • summary changed from Hashes don't define opIn and opIn_r to Hash maps don't define opIn and opIn_r.

Well I screwed up the title, I meant hash *maps*.

    bool containsKey(const(K) key) const
        return !elemAt(key).empty;

    /// ditto
    bool opIn_r(const(K) key)
        return this.containsKey(key);

Ah wait, double-screwup. "in" for builtin hashes returns a pointer, not a boolean. Hmm..

elemAt should do the equivalent using cursors. However, I'm hesitant to implement opIn_r with pointers.

I don't mind aliasing opIn_r to contains. Would this be sufficient?
