Desktop Development on Windows and Delphi VCL Library

Despite all the push for web and mobile development, which are certainly
growing a lot, Windows desktop development is far from death. In fact, at
the re...
SaveToFile, LoadFromFile, LoadFromStream and SaveToStream. I don't see an IndexOf. And no Text value.
ReplyDeleteStill, my informal testing shows your IndexOfName is about 65 times as fast as TStringList.IndexOf.
I've updated the class with your requests, IndexOfName is same as IndexOf in TStringList, the name is IndexOfName because you need to distinguish between IndexOfValue which is the value of a name and IndexOfName.
ReplyDeleteP.S. I haven't compared too much the speed with TStringList simply because TurboHashedStringList uses hashes, this means way faster compare on strings, the more information you have in the list the bigger the difference in search is. What exactly do you mean by 65 times faster than "TStringList.IndexOf"? is it 65 miliseconds faster, or?
Nice work!
ReplyDeleteCompiling under Delphi XE Pro yields the following hints:
[DCC Hint] uHashedStringList.pas(153): H2164 Variable 'StringData' is declared but never used in 'TurboHashedStringList.Clear'
[DCC Hint] uHashedStringList.pas(202): H2077 Value assigned to 'Item2' never used
[DCC Hint] uHashedStringList.pas(201): H2077 Value assigned to 'Item1' never used
ok. Great work again.
ReplyDeletethe procedure TurboHashedStringList.Exchange is unfinished. It currently reads:
procedure TurboHashedStringList.Exchange(Index1, Index2: Integer);
var
Item1: PStringRec;
Item2: PStringRec;
TempI: PStringRec;
begin
Item1 := FList[Index1];
Item2 := FList[Index2];
TempI := Item1;
Item1 := Item2;
Item2 := TempI;
end;// procedure TurboHashedStringList.Exchange(Index1, Index2: Integer);
I am sure that you intended this:
procedure TurboHashedStringList.Exchange(Index1, Index2: Integer);
var
Item1: PStringRec;
Item2: PStringRec;
begin
Item1 := FList[Index1];
Item2 := FList[Index2];
FList[Index1] := Item2;
FList[Index2] := Item1;
end;// procedure TurboHashedStringList.Exchange(Index1, Index2: Integer);
your indexof function must return 1 if item doesn't exists
ReplyDeleteso simply add atIndex:=1; at the top of function
