Interval tree (data structure)

An interval tree is a collection of integer-bounded intervals labeled by a value.

For a brief description of the implementation, see the matching Wikipedia article

type 'a t 
exception Empty_tree


val is_empty : 'a t -> bool
val cardinal : 'a t -> int
val intersects : int -> int -> 'a t -> bool
intersects a b t returns true if one interval in t intersects with the interval [a;b].
val find_closest : int -> int -> 'a t -> int * int * 'a * int
find_closest lo hi t returns the interval in t which is at minimal distance of the interval [lo;hi]. The resulting tuple contains from left to right, left-end of the interval, right-end of the interval, value associated to the interval and distance to the interval given in argument. Overlapping intervals are at distance 0 of each other.

Raises Empty_tree if t is empty


val empty : 'a t
the empty tree
val add : int -> int -> 'a -> 'a t -> 'a t
add lo hi v t adds the interval (lo, hi) labeled with value v to the contents of t. Note that in contrast to sets, identical intervals (even with identical labels) may be *repeated* in an interval tree. E.g., add 1 2 () (add 1 2 ()) contains 2 intervals.
