[ANN] arrayfields-3.6.0
 

URLS:

- http://raa.ruby-lang.org/project/arrayfields/
- http://www.codeforpeople.com/lib/ruby/arrayfields/
- http://rubyforge.org/projects/arrayfields/

SYNOPSIS:

allow keyword access to arrays:

require 'arrayfields'

fields = 'name', 'age'
row = [ 'bob', 30 ]

row.fields = fields

row[ 'name' ] #=> 'bob'
row.indices 'name', 'age' #=> [ 'bob', 30 ]

assigning to un-named fields appends:

stack = []
stack.fields = %w(zero one)
stack['zero'] = 'zero'
stack['one'] = 'one'
stack #=> [ 'zero', 'one' ]

useful for database work:

relation = pgconn.query sql
relation.size #=> 65536

# yikes! do we really want to re-construct a hash for for each tuple when
# we already have Arrays?

fields = %w(ssn name position)
table.each{|tuple| tuple.fields = fields}

tuples[34578]['ssn'] #=> 574865032

- Array#[]

HISTORY:

3.6.0:
- made string/symbol keys interchangeable

list = [0, 1, 2]

list.fields = %w( a b c )

p list['a'] #=> 0
p list[:a] #=> 0


3.5.0:
- added more hash-like methods
- update
- replace
- invert

3.4.0:
- added FieldedArray[] ctor
- added methods to make Arrays with fields set behave more closely to Hashes
- each_pair
- each_key
- each_value
- fetch
- has_key?
- member?
- key?
- has_value?
- value?
- keys?
- store
- values

3.3.0:
- added gemspec file - thnx Assaph Mehr
- added FieldedArray proxy class which minimizes modifications to class
Array and allow ArrayFields to work (potientially) other arraylike object.
thnks Sean O'Dell
- added ArrayFields#to_hash method - this seems like an obvious one to add!
- remedied bug where using append feature of assigning with unknow field
appedended but did not append to acutal fields
- added samples
- created rubyforge accnt @ http://rubyforge.org/projects/arrayfields/

3.2.0:
- precedence fix in many methods - thnx. nobu
- test for #slice! were not being run - corrected
- added test for appeding via "a['new_field'] = 42"

3.1.0:
- added FieldSet class to reduce ram - thnx. Kirk Haines for profiliing
memory and prompting this change

- interface changed every so slightly so

a.fields = 'a', 'b', 'c'

is not allowed. use

a.fields = %w(a b c)

or

a.fields = ['a', 'b', 'c']


3.0.0:
- added unit tests

to foster inner awareness, introspection, and reasoning is more efficient than
meditation and prayer.
