LAZYLISTDUPLICATELike LAZYCOPY - copies an input list if the list has entries, If it doesn't the assigned list is nulled
LAZYNULLSets a list to null
LAZYADDASSOCLISTThis is used to add onto lazy assoc list when the value you're adding is a /list/. This one has extra safety over lazyaddassoc because the value could be null (and thus cant be used to += objects)
LAZYORASSOCLISTPerforms an insertion on the given lazy list with the given key and value. If the value already exists, a new one will not be made.
COMPARE_KEYPassed into BINARY_INSERT to compare keys
COMPARE_VALUEPassed into BINARY_INSERT to compare values
BINARY_INSERTBinary search sorted insert INPUT: Object to be inserted LIST: List to insert object into TYPECONT: The typepath of the contents of the list COMPARE: The object to compare against, usualy the same as INPUT COMPARISON: The variable on the objects to compare COMPTYPE: How should the values be compared? Either COMPARE_KEY or COMPARE_VALUE.
/proc/pick_n_take Pick a random element from the list and remove it from the list.
/proc/find_record Returns datum/data/record

Define Details

BINARY_INSERT

Binary search sorted insert INPUT: Object to be inserted LIST: List to insert object into TYPECONT: The typepath of the contents of the list COMPARE: The object to compare against, usualy the same as INPUT COMPARISON: The variable on the objects to compare COMPTYPE: How should the values be compared? Either COMPARE_KEY or COMPARE_VALUE.

COMPARE_KEY

Passed into BINARY_INSERT to compare keys

COMPARE_VALUE

Passed into BINARY_INSERT to compare values

LAZYADDASSOCLIST

This is used to add onto lazy assoc list when the value you're adding is a /list/. This one has extra safety over lazyaddassoc because the value could be null (and thus cant be used to += objects)

LAZYLISTDUPLICATE

Like LAZYCOPY - copies an input list if the list has entries, If it doesn't the assigned list is nulled

LAZYNULL

Sets a list to null

LAZYORASSOCLIST

Performs an insertion on the given lazy list with the given key and value. If the value already exists, a new one will not be made.
