Module type **S**

= **sig end**

Output signature of the functor **Set.Make** .

*type elt*

The type of the set elements.

*type t*

The type of sets.

*val empty* : **t**

The empty set.

*val is_empty* : **t -> bool**

Test whether a set is empty or not.

*val mem* : **elt -> t -> bool**

**mem x s** tests whether **x** belongs to the set **s** .

*val add* : **elt -> t -> t**

**add x s** returns a set containing all elements of **s** , plus **x** . If **x** was already in **s** , **s** is returned unchanged (the result of the function is then physically equal to **s** ).

**Before4.03** Physical equality was not ensured.

*val singleton* : **elt -> t**

**singleton x** returns the one-element set containing only **x** .

*val remove* : **elt -> t -> t**

**remove x s** returns a set containing all elements of **s** , except **x** . If **x** was not in **s** , **s** is returned unchanged (the result of the function is then physically equal to **s** ).

**Before4.03** Physical equality was not ensured.

*val union* : **t -> t -> t**

Set union.

*val inter* : **t -> t -> t**

Set intersection.

*val diff* : **t -> t -> t**

Set difference.

*val compare* : **t -> t -> int**

Total ordering between sets. Can be used as the ordering function for doing sets of sets.

*val equal* : **t -> t -> bool**

**equal s1 s2** tests whether the sets **s1** and **s2** are equal, that is, contain equal elements.

*val subset* : **t -> t -> bool**

**subset s1 s2** tests whether the set **s1** is a subset of the set **s2** .

*val iter* : **(elt -> unit) -> t -> unit**

**iter f s** applies **f** in turn to all elements of **s** . The elements of **s** are presented to **f** in increasing order with respect to the ordering over the type of the elements.

*val map* : **(elt -> elt) -> t -> t**

**map f s** is the set whose elements are **f a0** , **f a1** ... **f aN** , where **a0** , **a1** ... **aN** are the elements of **s** .

The elements are passed to **f** in increasing order with respect to the ordering over the type of the elements.

If no element of **s** is changed by **f** , **s** is returned unchanged. (If each output of **f** is physically equal to its input, the returned set is physically equal to **s** .)

*val fold* : **(elt -> 'a -> 'a) -> t -> 'a -> 'a**

**fold f s a** computes **(f xN ... (f x2 (f x1 a))...)** , where **x1 ... xN** are the elements of **s** , in increasing order.

*val for_all* : **(elt -> bool) -> t -> bool**

**for_all p s** checks if all elements of the set satisfy the predicate **p** .

*val exists* : **(elt -> bool) -> t -> bool**

**exists p s** checks if at least one element of the set satisfies the predicate **p** .

*val filter* : **(elt -> bool) -> t -> t**

**filter p s** returns the set of all elements in **s** that satisfy predicate **p** . If **p** satisfies every element in **s** , **s** is returned unchanged (the result of the function is then physically equal to **s** ).

**Before4.03** Physical equality was not ensured.

*val partition* : **(elt -> bool) -> t -> t * t**

**partition p s** returns a pair of sets **(s1, s2)** , where **s1** is the set of all the elements of **s** that satisfy the predicate **p** , and **s2** is the set of all the elements of **s** that do not satisfy **p** .

*val cardinal* : **t -> int**

Return the number of elements of a set.

*val elements* : **t -> elt list**

Return the list of all elements of the given set. The returned list is sorted in increasing order with respect to the ordering **Ord.compare** , where **Ord** is the argument given to **Set.Make** .

*val min_elt* : **t -> elt**

Return the smallest element of the given set (with respect to the **Ord.compare** ordering), or raise **Not_found** if the set is empty.

*val max_elt* : **t -> elt**

Same as **Set.S.min_elt** , but returns the largest element of the given set.

*val choose* : **t -> elt**

Return one element of the given set, or raise **Not_found** if the set is empty. Which element is chosen is unspecified, but equal elements will be chosen for equal sets.

*val split* : **elt -> t -> t * bool * t**

**split x s** returns a triple **(l, present, r)** , where **l** is the set of elements of **s** that are strictly less than **x** ; **r** is the set of elements of **s** that are strictly greater than **x** ; **present** is **false** if **s** contains no element equal to **x** , or **true** if **s** contains an element equal to **x** .

*val find* : **elt -> t -> elt**

**find x s** returns the element of **s** equal to **x** (according to **Ord.compare** ), or raise **Not_found** if no such element exists.

**Since** 4.01.0

*val of_list* : **elt list -> t**

**of_list l** creates a set from a list of elements. This is usually more efficient than folding **add** over the list, except perhaps for lists with many duplicated elements.

**Since** 4.02.0
