Module Biocaml_accu

module Biocaml_accu: sig .. end
A datastructure (based on Hashtbl) to accumulate values.

An Accu.t can be seen as a generalized histogram: values are mapped to bins, and each bin has a corresponding value which may be its size or its contents depending on the need.

Generic API

type ('a, 'b, 'c, 'd) t 
General type for accumulators: 'instances are mapped to 'bins, and the 'accumulated value for a 'bin is updated with an 'increment
val create : ?n:int ->
'a -> ('b -> 'c) -> ('d -> 'a -> 'a) -> ('b, 'c, 'd, 'a) t
create ~n e f op creates an accumulator, which maps instances to bins with f, uses e as a neutral element (that is the value associated to a bin before any value has been added to it) and updates the value of a bin with op. n is an estimation of the maximum number of bins.
val add : ('a, 'b, 'c, 'd) t -> 'a -> 'c -> unit
add accu x y updates the value in accu for the bin of x by an increment y
val enum : ('a, 'b, 'c, 'd) t -> ('b * 'd) Batteries.Enum.t
val get : ('a, 'b, 'c, 'd) t -> 'b -> 'd
get accu x returns the value associated to b in accu.

Counters and histograms

type 'a counter = ('a, 'a, int, int) t 
The type of accumulators that count values
module Counter: sig .. end
val counts : ('a -> 'b) -> 'a Batteries.Enum.t -> ('b * int) Batteries.Enum.t
