Ternary Search Tree - (pure crystal-lang)

GitHub version CI

In computer science, a ternary search tree is a type of trie (sometimes called a prefix tree) where nodes are arranged in a manner similar to a binary search tree, but with up to three children rather than the binary tree's limit of two. Like other prefix trees, a ternary search tree can be used as an associative map structure with the ability for incremental string search. However, ternary search trees are more space efficient compared to standard prefix trees, at the cost of speed. Common applications for ternary search trees include spell-checking and auto-completion. (wikipedia)

Installation

Add this to your application's shard.yml:

dependencies:
  ternary_search:
    github: johnjansen/ternary_search

Usage

require "ternary_search"

tst = TernarySearch::Tree.new

# add to the TST
tst.insert("polygon")  # => nil
tst.insert("triangle") # => nil

# search the TST
tst.search("polygon")  # => true
tst.search("poly")     # => false
tst.search("triangle") # => true

# get the max word length
tst.max_word_length # => 8

# get an array of words in the TST
# DO NOT USE THIS ON LARGE TST's
# i'm looking into a block version of this!
tst.words = ["polygon", "triangle"]
