binarySearch

public int binarySearch(java.lang.Object key)
Searches the receiver for the specified value using the binary search algorithm. The receiver must be sorted into ascending order according to the natural ordering of its elements (as by the sort method) prior to making this call. If it is not sorted, the results are undefined: in particular, the call may enter an infinite loop. If the receiver contains multiple elements equal to the specified object, there is no guarantee which instance will be found.

Parameters:
key - the value to be searched for.
Returns:
index of the search key, if it is contained in the receiver; otherwise, (-(insertion point) - 1). The insertion point is defined as the the point at which the value would be inserted into the receiver: the index of the first element greater than the key, or receiver.size(), if all elements in the receiver are less than the specified key. Note that this guarantees that the return value will be >= 0 if and only if the key is found.

Searches the receiver for the specified value using the binary search algorithm. The receiver must be sorted into ascending order according to the natural ordering of its elements (as by the sort method) prior to making this call. If it is not sorted, the results are undefined: in particular, the call may enter an infinite loop. If the receiver contains multiple elements equal to the specified object, there is no guarantee which instance will be found.

Parameters:
key - the value to be searched for.
from - the leftmost search position, inclusive.
to - the rightmost search position, inclusive.
Returns:
index of the search key, if it is contained in the receiver; otherwise, (-(insertion point) - 1). The insertion point is defined as the the point at which the value would be inserted into the receiver: the index of the first element greater than the key, or receiver.size(), if all elements in the receiver are less than the specified key. Note that this guarantees that the return value will be >= 0 if and only if the key is found.

                              java.util.Comparator comparator)
Searches the receiver for the specified value using the binary search algorithm. The receiver must be sorted into ascending order according to the specified comparator. All elements in the range must be mutually comparable by the specified comparator (that is, c.compare(e1, e2) must not throw a ClassCastException for any elements e1 and e2 in the range).

If the receiver is not sorted, the results are undefined: in particular, the call may enter an infinite loop. If the receiver contains multiple elements equal to the specified object, there is no guarantee which instance will be found.

Parameters:
key - the value to be searched for.
from - the leftmost search position, inclusive.
to - the rightmost search position, inclusive.
comparator - the comparator by which the receiver is sorted.
Returns:
index of the search key, if it is contained in the receiver; otherwise, (-(insertion point) - 1). The insertion point is defined as the the point at which the value would be inserted into the receiver: the index of the first element greater than the key, or receiver.size(), if all elements in the receiver are less than the specified key. Note that this guarantees that the return value will be >= 0 if and only if the key is found.
Throws:
java.lang.ClassCastException - if the receiver contains elements that are not mutually comparable using the specified comparator.

mergeSortFromTo

public void mergeSortFromTo(int from,
                            int to)

This sort is guaranteed to be stable: equal elements will not be reordered as a result of the sort.

The sorting algorithm is a modified mergesort (in which the merge is omitted if the highest element in the low sublist is less than the lowest element in the high sublist). This algorithm offers guaranteed n*log(n) performance, and can approach linear performance on nearly sorted lists.

You should never call this method unless you are sure that this particular sorting algorithm is the right one for your data set. It is generally better to call sort() or sortFromTo(...) instead, because those methods automatically choose the best sorting algorithm.

Specified by:
mergeSortFromTo in class AbstractList
Parameters:
from - the index of the first element (inclusive) to be sorted.
to - the index of the last element (inclusive) to be sorted.
Throws:
java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException - index is out of range (size()>0 && (from<0 || from>to || to>=size())).

                            java.util.Comparator c)
Sorts the receiver according to the order induced by the specified comparator. All elements in the range must be mutually comparable by the specified comparator (that is, c.compare(e1, e2) must not throw a ClassCastException for any elements e1 and e2 in the range).

This sort is guaranteed to be stable: equal elements will not be reordered as a result of the sort.

The sorting algorithm is a modified mergesort (in which the merge is omitted if the highest element in the low sublist is less than the lowest element in the high sublist). This algorithm offers guaranteed n*log(n) performance, and can approach linear performance on nearly sorted lists.

Furthermore, all elements in this range must be mutually comparable (that is, e1.compareTo(e2) must not throw a ClassCastException for any elements e1 and e2 in the array).

The sorting algorithm is a tuned quicksort, adapted from Jon L. Bentley and M. Douglas McIlroy's "Engineering a Sort Function", Software-Practice and Experience, Vol. 23(11) P. 1249-1265 (November 1993). This algorithm offers n*log(n) performance on many data sets that cause other quicksorts to degrade to quadratic performance.

You should never call this method unless you are sure that this particular sorting algorithm is the right one for your data set. It is generally better to call sort() or sortFromTo(...) instead, because those methods automatically choose the best sorting algorithm.

Specified by:
quickSortFromTo in class AbstractList
Parameters:
from - the index of the first element (inclusive) to be sorted.
to - the index of the last element (inclusive) to be sorted.
Throws:
java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException - index is out of range (size()>0 && (from<0 || from>to || to>=size())).

quickSortFromTo

                            java.util.Comparator c)
Sorts the receiver according to the order induced by the specified comparator. All elements in the range must be mutually comparable by the specified comparator (that is, c.compare(e1, e2) must not throw a ClassCastException for any elements e1 and e2 in the range).

removeAll

public boolean removeAll(ObjectArrayList other,
                         boolean testForEquality)
Removes from the receiver all elements that are contained in the specified list. Tests for equality or identity as specified by testForEquality.

Parameters:
other - the other list.
testForEquality - if true -> test for equality, otherwise for identity.
Returns:
true if the receiver changed as a result of the call.

removeFromTo

public void removeFromTo(int from,
                         int to)
Removes from the receiver all elements whose index is between from, inclusive and to, inclusive. Shifts any succeeding elements to the left (reduces their index). This call shortens the list by (to - from + 1) elements.

Specified by:
removeFromTo in class AbstractList
Parameters:
from - index of first element to be removed.
to - index of last element to be removed.
Throws:
java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException - index is out of range (size()>0 && (from<0 || from>to || to>=size())).

replaceFromToWithFrom

public void replaceFromToWithFrom(int from,
                                  int to,
                                  ObjectArrayList other,
                                  int otherFrom)
Replaces a number of elements in the receiver with the same number of elements of another list. Replaces elements in the receiver, between from (inclusive) and to (inclusive), with elements of other, starting from otherFrom (inclusive).

Parameters:
from - the position of the first element to be replaced in the receiver
to - the position of the last element to be replaced in the receiver
other - list holding elements to be copied into the receiver.
otherFrom - position of first element within other list to be copied.

replaceFromToWithFromTo

public void replaceFromToWithFromTo(int from,
                                    int to,
                                    ObjectArrayList other,
                                    int otherFrom,
                                    int otherTo)
Replaces the part between from (inclusive) and to (inclusive) with the other list's part between otherFrom and otherTo. Powerful (and tricky) method! Both parts need not be of the same size (part A can both be smaller or larger than part B). Parts may overlap. Receiver and other list may (but most not) be identical. If from > to, then inserts other part before from.

Parameters:
from - the first element of the receiver (inclusive)
to - the last element of the receiver (inclusive)
other - the other list (may be identical with receiver)
otherFrom - the first element of the other list (inclusive)
otherTo - the last element of the other list (inclusive)

Examples:

 a=[0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7]
 b=[50, 60, 70, 80, 90]
 a.R(...)=a.replaceFromToWithFromTo(...)

 a.R(3,5,b,0,4)-->[0, 1, 2, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 6, 7]
 a.R(1,6,b,0,4)-->[0, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 7]

 a.R(5,3,a,0,4)-->[0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7]
 a.R(0,-1,b,0,4)-->[50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7]
 a.R(0,-1,a,0,4)-->[0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7]
 a.R(8,0,a,0,4)-->[0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4]

public boolean retainAll(ObjectArrayList other,
                         boolean testForEquality)
Retains (keeps) only the elements in the receiver that are contained in the specified other list. In other words, removes from the receiver all of its elements that are not contained in the specified other list. Tests for equality or identity as specified by testForEquality.

Parameters:
other - the other list to test against.
testForEquality - if true -> test for equality, otherwise for identity.
Returns:
true if the receiver changed as a result of the call.

reverse

public void reverse()
Reverses the elements of the receiver. Last becomes first, second last becomes second first, and so on.

Specified by:
reverse in class AbstractList

set

public void set(int index,
                java.lang.Object element)
Replaces the element at the specified position in the receiver with the specified element.

Parameters:
index - index of element to replace.
element - element to be stored at the specified position.
Throws:
java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException - index is out of range (index < 0 || index >= size()).

setQuick

public void setQuick(int index,
                     java.lang.Object element)
Replaces the element at the specified position in the receiver with the specified element; WARNING: Does not check preconditions. Provided with invalid parameters this method may access invalid indexes without throwing any exception! You should only use this method when you are absolutely sure that the index is within bounds. Precondition (unchecked): index >= 0 && index < size().

Parameters:
index - index of element to replace.
element - element to be stored at the specified position.

shuffleFromTo

public void shuffleFromTo(int from,
                          int to)
Randomly permutes the part of the receiver between from (inclusive) and to (inclusive).

Specified by:
shuffleFromTo in class AbstractList
Parameters:
from - the index of the first element (inclusive) to be permuted.
to - the index of the last element (inclusive) to be permuted.
Throws:
java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException - index is out of range (size()>0 && (from<0 || from>to || to>=size())).

size

public int size()
Returns the number of elements contained in the receiver.

Specified by:
size in class AbstractCollection

times

public ObjectArrayList times(int times)
Returns a list which is a concatenation of times times the receiver.

Parameters:
times - the number of times the receiver shall be copied.

toArray

public java.lang.Object[] toArray(java.lang.Object[] array)
Returns an array containing all of the elements in the receiver in the correct order. The runtime type of the returned array is that of the specified array. If the receiver fits in the specified array, it is returned therein. Otherwise, a new array is allocated with the runtime type of the specified array and the size of the receiver.

If the receiver fits in the specified array with room to spare (i.e., the array has more elements than the receiver), the element in the array immediately following the end of the receiver is set to null. This is useful in determining the length of the receiver only if the caller knows that the receiver does not contain any null elements.

Parameters:
array - the array into which the elements of the receiver are to be stored, if it is big enough; otherwise, a new array of the same runtime type is allocated for this purpose.
Returns:
an array containing the elements of the receiver.
Throws:
java.lang.ArrayStoreException - the runtime type of array is not a supertype of the runtime type of every element in the receiver.

toList

public java.util.ArrayList toList()
Returns a java.util.ArrayList containing all the elements in the receiver.

Specified by:
toList in class AbstractCollection

toString

public java.lang.String toString()
Returns a string representation of the receiver, containing the String representation of each element.

Overrides:
toString in class AbstractCollection

trimToSize

public void trimToSize()
Trims the capacity of the receiver to be the receiver's current size. Releases any superfluos internal memory. An application can use this operation to minimize the storage of the receiver.

Overrides:
trimToSize in class AbstractList
