{{task|Discrete math}} {{data structure}} A '''set''' is a collection of elements, without duplicates and without order.

;Task: Show each of these set operations:

• Set creation
• Test m ∈ S -- "m is an element in set S"
• A ∪ B -- ''union''; a set of all elements either in set A or in set B.
• A ∩ B -- ''intersection''; a set of all elements in ''both'' set A and set B.
• A ∖ B -- ''difference''; a set of all elements in set A, except those in set B.
• A ⊆ B -- ''subset''; true if every element in set A is also in set B.
• A = B -- ''equality''; true if every element of set A is in set B and vice versa.

As an option, show some other set operations.

(If A ⊆ B, but A ≠ B, then A is called a true or proper subset of B, written A ⊂ B or A ⊊ B.)

As another option, show how to modify a mutable set.

One might implement a set using an [[associative array]] (with set elements as array keys and some dummy value as the values).

One might also implement a set with a binary search tree, or with a hash table, or with an ordered array of binary bits (operated on with bit-wise binary operators).

The basic test, m ∈ S, is [O] with a sequential list of elements, O(''log'' n) with a balanced binary search tree, or (O(1) average-case, O(n) worst case) with a hash table.

This solution uses the generic Ordered_Sets package from the Ada.Containers standard library, which internally is based on red-black trees. An alternative hash-based solution could use the Hashed_Maps package from Ada.Containers.

```with ada.containers.ordered_sets, ada.text_io;

procedure set_demo is
package cs is new ada.containers.ordered_sets (character); use cs;

function "+" (s : string) return set is
(if s = "" then empty_set else Union(+ s(s'first..s'last - 1), To_Set (s(s'last))));

function "-" (s : Set) return string is
(if s = empty_set then "" else - (s - To_Set (s.last_element)) & s.last_element);
s1, s2 : set;
begin
loop
put ("s1= ");
s1 := + get_line;
exit when s1 = +"Quit!";
put ("s2= ");
s2 := + get_line;
Put_Line("Sets [" & (-s1) & "], [" & (-s2) & "] of size"
& S1.Length'img & " and" & s2.Length'img & ".");
Put_Line("Intersection:   [" & (-(Intersection(S1, S2))) & "],");
Put_Line("Union:          [" & (-(Union(s1, s2)))        & "],");
Put_Line("Difference:     [" & (-(Difference(s1, s2)))   & "],");
Put_Line("Symmetric Diff: [" & (-(s1 xor s2)) & "],");
Put_Line("Subset: "  & Boolean'Image(s1.Is_Subset(s2))
& ", Equal: " & Boolean'Image(s1 = s2) & ".");
end loop;
end set_demo;

```

## Apex

In Apex, Sets are unordered collections of elements. Although elements can be anything including primitives, Ids, Apex classes, or sObjects, typically they are used with primitives and Ids.

```
public class MySetController{
public Set<String> strSet {get; private set; }
public Set<Id> idSet {get; private set; }

public MySetController(){
//Initialize to an already known collection.  Results in a set of abc,def.
this.strSet = new Set<String>{'abc','abc','def'};

//Initialize to empty set and add in entries.
this.strSet = new Set<String>();
//Results in {'abc','def'}

//You can also get a set from a map in Apex. In this case, the account ids are fetched from a SOQL query.
Map<Id,Account> accountMap = new Map<Id,Account>([Select Id,Name From Account Limit 10]);
Set<Id> accountIds = accountMap.keySet();

//If you have a set, you can also use it with the bind variable syntax in SOQL:
List<Account> accounts = [Select Name From Account Where Id in :accountIds];

//Like other collections in Apex, you can use a for loop to iterate over sets:
for(Id accountId : accountIds){
Account a = accountMap.get(accountId);
//Do account stuffs here.
}
}
}

```
```

## C

Building a set highly depends on the datatype and use case. For example, a set of string could be implemented by hash table, sort tree or trie, but if all sets are known to have very few number of elements, it might be best to use just flat arrays. There isn't, and shouldn't be, an all-purpose set type for C.

A frequent use of set is that of small, non-negative integers, implemented as a bit field as shown below.

```#include <stdio.h>

typedef unsigned int set_t; /* probably 32 bits; change according to need */

void show_set(set_t x, const char *name)
{
int i;
printf("%s is:", name);
for (i = 0; (1U << i) <= x; i++)
if (x & (1U << i))
printf(" %d", i);
putchar('\n');
}

int main(void)
{
int i;
set_t a, b, c;

a = 0; /* empty set */
for (i = 0; i < 10; i += 3) /* add 0 3 6 9 to set a */
a |= (1U << i);
show_set(a, "a");

for (i = 0; i < 5; i++)
printf("\t%d%s in set a\n", i, (a & (1U << i)) ? "":" not");

b = a;
b |= (1U << 5); b |= (1U << 10); /* b is a plus 5, 10 */
b &= ~(1U << 0);	/* sans 0 */
show_set(b, "b");

show_set(a | b, "union(a, b)");
show_set(c = a & b, "c = common(a, b)");
show_set(a & ~b, "a - b"); /* diff, not arithmetic minus */
show_set(b & ~a, "b - a");
printf("b is%s a subset of a\n", !(b & ~a) ? "" : " not");
printf("c is%s a subset of a\n", !(c & ~a) ? "" : " not");

printf("union(a, b) - common(a, b) %s union(a - b, b - a)\n",
((a | b) & ~(a & b)) == ((a & ~b) | (b & ~a))
? "equals" : "does not equal");

return 0;
}
```

## C++

C++ standard library contains a set class, which is a sorted container without duplicates and implemented as a binary tree. Additional set functionality can be implemented in terms of standard library algorithms.

C++11 standard library also contains unordered_set based on a hash table. However, algorithms like std::set_intersection etc take sorted ranges, so set-specific functions should be hand-rolled.

## Clojure

```(require 'clojure.set)

; sets can be created using the set method or set literal syntax
(def a (set [1 2 3 4]))

## Common Lisp

Common Lisp provides some set operations on lists.

```(setf a '(1 2 3 4))
(setf b '(2 3 4 5))

(format t "sets: ~a ~a~%" a b)

;;; element
(loop for x from 1 to 6 do
(format t (if (member x a)
"~d ∈ A~%"
"~d ∉ A~%") x))

(format t "A ∪ B: ~a~%" (union a b))
(format t "A ∩ B: ~a~%" (intersection a b))
(format t "A \\ B: ~a~%" (set-difference a b))
(format t (if (subsetp a b)
"~a ⊆ ~a~%"
"~a ⊈ ~a~%") a b)

(format t (if (and (subsetp a b)
(subsetp b a))
"~a = ~a~%"

## EchoLisp

EchoLisp sets are lists, i.e the set of all sets is a proper subset of the set of all lists. Sets elements may be any object, including sets.

The set operations are: ∩ ∪ ⊆ / ∈ = ∆ ×

```
; use { } to read a set
(define A { 1 2 3 4 3 5 5}) → { 1 2 3 4 5 } ; duplicates are removed from a set
; or use make-set to make a set from a list
(define B (make-set ' ( 3 4 5 6 7 8 8))) → { 3 4 5 6 7 8 }
(set-intersect A B) → { 3 4 5 }
(set-intersect? A B) → #t ; predicate
(set-union A B) → { 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 }
(set-substract A B) → { 1 2 }
(set-sym-diff A B) → { 1 2 6 7 8 } ; ∆ symmetric difference
(set-equal? A B) →  #f
(set-equal? { a b c} { c b a}) → #t ; order is unimportant
(set-subset? A B) → #f ; B in A or B = A
(set-subset? A { 3 4 }) → #t
(member 4 A) → (4 5) ; same as #t : true
(member 9 A) → #f

; check basic equalities
(set-equal? A (set-union (set-intersect A B) (set-substract A B))) → #t
(set-equal? (set-union A B) (set-union (set-sym-diff A B) (set-intersect A B))) → #t

; × : cartesian product of two sets : all pairs (a . b) , a in A, b in B
; returns a list (not a set)
(define A { albert simon})
(define B { antoinette ornella marylin})

(set-product A B)
→ ((albert . antoinette) (albert . marylin) (albert . ornella) (simon . antoinette) (simon . marylin) (simon . ornella))

; sets elements may be sets
{ { a b c} {c b a } { a b d}} → { { a b c } { a b d } } ; duplicate removed

; A few functions return sets :
(primes 10) → { 2 3 5 7 11 13 17 19 23 29 }

## Go

A common complaint is that Go has no native set type and so there are a number of third-party libraries offering to fill this perceived gap. Yet Go has good native support for most applications for sets.

### Maps

Go maps meet the task description in that they do not require orderable elements. To demonstrate that, a set of complex numbers is shown here. Complex numbers can be compared for equality but are not ordered.

```package main

import "fmt"

// Define set as a type to hold a set of complex numbers.  A type
// could be defined similarly to hold other types of elements.  A common
// variation is to make a map of interface{} to represent a set of
// mixed types.  Also here the map value is a bool.  By always storing
// true, the code is nicely readable.  A variation to use less memory
// is to make the map value an empty struct.  The relative advantages
// can be debated.
type set map[complex128]bool

func main() {
s0 := make(set)             // create empty set
s1 := set{3: true}          // create set with one element
s2 := set{3: true, 1: true} // create set with two elements

// option: another way to create a set
s3 := newSet(3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9)

// option: output!

### Big.Int

If elements of your set are integers or can be indexed by integers, are zero based and relatively "dense", then the big.Int type in the standard library can serve efficiently as a set. The solution here doesn't even bother to define a set type, it just defines functions that use big.Ints directly as sets.

Note that the elements here, being integers, are of course ordered and so might not meet a strict reading of the task requirements.

```package main

import (
"fmt"
"math/big"
)

func main() {
// create an empty set
var s0 big.Int

// create sets with elements
s1 := newSet(3)
s2 := newSet(3, 1)
s3 := newSet(3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9)

// output
fmt.Println("s0:", format(s0))
fmt.Println("s1:", format(s1))
fmt.Println("s2:", format(s2))
fmt.Println("s3:", format(s3))

// element predicate
fmt.Printf("%v ∈ s0: %t\n", 3, hasElement(s0, 3))

fmt.Printf("%v ⊂ s3: %t\n", format(s2Same), properSubset(s2Same, s3))

// delete
remove(&s3, 3)
fmt.Println("s3, 3 removed:", format(s3))

### Intsets

Not quite in the stanard library but still in the official "sub repository", intsets are a ''sparse'' bit set. Like big.Int they use a single bit to represent a possible element, but the sparse representation efficiently allows for large "holes" in the element sequence. Also the intsets API provides a more set-like terminology so the RC task can be coded more directly.

```package main

import (
"fmt"

"golang.org/x/tools/container/intsets"
)

func main() {
var s0, s1 intsets.Sparse // create some empty sets
s1.Insert(3)              // insert an element
s2 := newSet(3, 1)        // create sets with elements
s3 := newSet(3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9)

// output
fmt.Println("s0:", &s0)
fmt.Println("s1:", &s1)
fmt.Println("s2:", s2)
fmt.Println("s3:", s3)

// element predicate
fmt.Printf("%v ∈ s0: %t\n", 3, s0.Has(3))
fmt.Printf("%v ∈ s3: %t\n", 3, s3.Has(3))

fmt.Printf("s3 ∪ %v: %v\n", b, &s)

// intersection
s.Intersection(s3, b)
fmt.Printf("s3 ∩ %v: %v\n", b, &s)

// difference
s.Difference(s3, b)
fmt.Printf("s3 \\ %v: %v\n", b, &s)

// subset predicate
fmt.Printf("%v ⊆ s3: %t\n", b, b.SubsetOf(s3))
fmt.Printf("%v ⊆ s3: %t\n", s2, s2.SubsetOf(s3))

fmt.Printf("%v = s2: %t\n", s2Same, s2Same.Equals(s2))

// delete
s3.Remove(3)
fmt.Println("s3, 3 removed:", s3)
}

var set intsets.Sparse
for _, m := range ms {
set.Insert(m)

```

{{works with|GHC}} GHC offers a functional, persistent set data structure in its `Data.Set` module. It is implemented using a binary search tree. Elements must be of an orderable type (instance of `Ord`).

``` import Data.Set
Prelude Data.Set> empty :: Set Integer -- Empty set
fromList []
Prelude Data.Set> let s1 = fromList [1,2,3,4,3] -- Convert list into set
Prelude Data.Set> s1
fromList [1,2,3,4]
Prelude Data.Set> let s2 = fromList [3,4,5,6]
Prelude Data.Set> union s1 s2 -- Union
fromList [1,2,3,4,5,6]
Prelude Data.Set> intersection s1 s2 -- Intersection
fromList [3,4]
Prelude Data.Set> s1 \\ s2 -- Difference
fromList [1,2]
Prelude Data.Set> s1 `isSubsetOf` s1 -- Subset
True
Prelude Data.Set> fromList [3,1] `isSubsetOf` s1
True
Prelude Data.Set> s1 `isProperSubsetOf` s1 -- Proper subset
False
Prelude Data.Set> fromList [3,1] `isProperSubsetOf` s1
True
Prelude Data.Set> fromList [3,2,4,1] == s1 -- Equality
True
Prelude Data.Set> s1 == s2
False
Prelude Data.Set> 2 `member` s1 -- Membership
True
Prelude Data.Set> 10 `notMember` s1
True
Prelude Data.Set> size s1 -- Cardinality
4
Prelude Data.Set> insert 99 s1 -- Create a new set by inserting
fromList [1,2,3,4,99]
Prelude Data.Set> delete 3 s1 -- Create a new set by deleting
fromList [1,2,4]
```

Regular lists can also be used as sets. Haskell has some functions to help with using lists as sets. No requirement is made of element type. However, these are not very efficient because they require linear time to find an element.

``` import Data.List
Prelude Data.List> let s3 = nub [1,2,3,4,3] -- Remove duplicates from list
Prelude Data.List> s3
[1,2,3,4]
Prelude Data.List> let s4 = [3,4,5,6]
Prelude Data.List> union s3 s4 -- Union
[1,2,3,4,5,6]
Prelude Data.List> intersect s3 s4 -- Intersection
[3,4]
Prelude Data.List> s3 \\ s4 -- Difference
[1,2]
Prelude Data.List> 42 : s3 -- Return new list with element inserted at the beginning
[42,1,2,3,4]
Prelude Data.List> delete 3 s3 -- Return new list with first occurrence of element removed
[1,2,4]
```

The set is a basic datatype (structure) in Icon and Unicon, which supports 'member', 'union', 'intersection' and 'difference' operations. Subset and equality must be implemented separately, or use the routines in the 'sets' library.

Implemented directly:

```
procedure display_set (s)
writes ("[")
every writes (!s || " ")
write ("]")
end

# fail unless s1 and s2 contain the same elements
procedure set_equals (s1, s2)
return subset(s1, s2) & subset(s2, s1)
end

# fail if every element in s2 is not contained in s1
procedure subset (s1, s2)
every (a := !s2) do {
if not(member(s1,a)) then fail
}
return s2
end

procedure main ()
a := set(1, 1, 2, 3, 4)
b := set(2, 3, 5)
writes ("a: ")
display_set (a)
writes ("b: ")
display_set (b)
# basic set operations
writes ("Intersection: ")
display_set (a ** b)
writes ("Union: ")
display_set (a ++ b)
writes ("Difference: ")
display_set (a -- b)
# membership
if member(a, 2) then
write ("2 is a member of a")
else
write ("2 is not a member of a")
if member(a, 5) then
write ("5 is a member of a")
else
write ("5 is not a member of a")
# equality
if set_equals(a, set(1,2,3,4,4)) then
write ("a equals set(1,2,3,4,4)")
else
write ("a does not equal set(1,2,3,4,4)")
if set_equals(a, b) then
write ("a equals b")
else
write ("a does not equal b")
# subset

if subset(a, set(1,2,5)) then

end

## J

In J, we use a sequence to represent a set. This actually winds up being a family of set implementations. In this example, we chose to ignore order and specify that duplicate elements are not allowed.

Here are definitions for the required operations:

```union=: ~.@,
intersection=: [ -. -.
difference=: -.
subset=: *./@e.
equality=: -:&(/:~)
```

Examples:

```  2 4 6 8 ~.@, 2 3 5 7
2 4 6 8 3 5 7
2 4 6 8 ([ -. -.) 2 3 5 7
2
2 4 6 8 -. 2 3 5 7
4 6 8
2 4 6 8 *./@e. 2 3 5 7
0
'' *./@e. 2 3 5 7
1
2 4 6 8 3 5 7 -:&(/:~) 8 7 6 5 4 3 2
1
```

Examples again, using names rather than code:

```   2 4 6 8 union 2 3 5 7
2 4 6 8 3 5 7
2 4 6 8 intersection 2 3 5 7
2
2 4 6 8 difference 2 3 5 7
4 6 8
2 4 6 8 subset 2 3 5 7
0
'' subset 2 3 5 7
1
2 4 6 8 3 5 7 equality 8 7 6 5 4 3 2
1
```

Note that J uses 1 for true and 0 for false. Mathematical revisionists object to this, but this is consistent with the original (and revised) formulations of boolean algebra. (And there are deep ties to Bayes' rule.)

Note that these operations can be combined in sentences with other operations. For example we could define

```properSubset=: subset * 1 - equality
```

## jq

{{works with|jq|1.4}}

Neither JSON nor jq has a "set" type, but as explained below in the first part of this entry, finite sets of Unicode strings can be directly represented in JSON and thus jq.

The second part of this entry focuses on a jq library of set-theoretic functions that support finite sets of arbitrary JSON entities.

### Finite Sets of Unicode Strings

There is an obvious 1-1 mapping between the collection of finite sets of Unicode strings and the collection of JSON objects with distinct keys the values of which all have the boolean value "true". For example, the set of strings {"a", "b"} corresponds to the JSON object {"a": true, "b": true }.

When restricted to such JSON objects, jq's equality operator ("==") yields set-theoretic semantics, and similarly, jq's + operator yields set-theoretic union.

For example:

```{"a":true, "b":true } == {"b":true, "a":true}.
{"a":true} + {"b":true } == { "a":true, "b":true}
```

Thus, it can be seen that jq has built-in support for sets of finite-length Unicode strings.

For simplicity and to avoid confusion, we shall refer to JSON objects all of whose keys are distinct and all values of which have the boolean value "true" as "string sets".

'''String-set test'''

Here is a jq filter for determining whether a JSON object is a "string set":

```def is_stringset:
. as \$in | type == "object" and reduce keys[] as \$key (true; . and \$in[\$key] == true);
```

'''String-set membership''':

The test for set membership, m ∈ S, where m is a string and S is a set of strings, corresponds exactly to the jq test:

```T | has(m)
```

where T is the JSON object corresponding to S. This test is also efficient.

'''String-set intersection'''

```# Set-intersection: A ∩ B
def stringset_intersection(A;B):
reduce (A|keys)[] as \$k
({}; if (B|has(\$k)) then . + {(\$k):true} else . end);
```

'''String-set difference'''

```# stringset_difference: A \ B
def stringset_difference(A;B):
reduce (A|keys)[] as \$k
({}; if (B|has(\$k)) then . else . + {(\$k):true} end);
```

'''Subset'''

```# A ⊆ B iff string_subset(A;B)
def stringset_subset(A;B):
reduce (A|keys)[] as \$k
(true; . and (B|has(\$k)));
```

### Finite Sets of JSON Entities

Finite sets of arbitrary JSON entities can be represented by sets of strings using an invertible serialization of JSON entities, but in the remainder of this entry, we provide a more straightforward and probably more efficient implementation of finite sets using JSON arrays.

Specifically, the empty set is represented by [] and a non-empty set of JSON entities with distinct members m1, m2, ... mN is represented by the JSON array [s1, s2, ... sN] where:

[s1, s2, ... sN] is the result of ([m1, m2, ... mN] | sort)

When confined to sorted arrays, jq's equality operator (==) yields set-theoretic semantics, and therefore, for the remainder of this entry, we shall refer to sorted arrays simply as sets.

To convert an arbitrary jq or JSON array to a set, we can simply use the built-in jq operator "unique". To test whether an arbitrary JSON entity is a set without sorting:

```def is_set:
. as \$in
| type == "array" and
reduce range(0;length-1) as \$i
(true; if . then \$in[\$i] < \$in[\$i+1] else false end);
```

The following library of set-theoretic functions is intended for use with jq version 1.4 or later. However, as noted below, if used with a version of jq that does not have bsearch, then it is assumed that a definition of bsearch equivalent to that given in [[Binary search]] is available.

'''Set creation'''

• [] is the empty set;
• if m1 <= m2 <= ... mN then [m1, m2, ... mN] is the set containing the listed elements;
• The set of elements in an array, a, can be constructed by writing: a | unique
• The set of strings in the string-set SS is: SS|keys

'''m ∈ S'''

If m is a JSON entity and S a set, then the jq expression S[m] can be used to test whether m is an element of S, but for large sets, this is inefficient. A generally more efficient test membership of m in S would use bsearch as defined at [[Binary search]] or as provided in recent versions of jq:

```def is_member(m):  bsearch(m) > -1;
```

'''Intersection'''

```# If A and B are sets, then intersection(A;B) emits their intersection:
def intersection(\$A;\$B):
def pop:
. as \$i
| . as \$j
| if \$i == (\$A|length) or \$j == (\$B|length) then empty
elif \$A[\$i] == \$B[\$j] then \$A[\$i], ([\$i+1, \$j+1] | pop)
elif \$A[\$i] <  \$B[\$j] then [\$i+1, \$j] | pop
else [\$i, \$j+1] | pop
end;
[[0,0] | pop];
```

'''Difference'''

```# If A and B are sets, then A-B is emitted
def difference(A;B):
(A|length) as \$al
| (B|length) as \$bl
| if \$al == 0 then [] elif \$bl == 0 then A
else
reduce range(0; \$al + \$bl) as \$k
( [0, 0, []];
. as \$i | . as \$j
| if \$i < \$al and \$j < \$bl then
if A[\$i] == B[\$j] then [ \$i+1, \$j+1,  . ]
elif  A[\$i] < B[\$j] then [ \$i+1, \$j, . + [A[\$i]] ]
else [ \$i , \$j+1, . ]
end
elif \$i < \$al then [ \$i+1, \$j,  . + [A[\$i]] ]
else .
end
) | .
end ;
```

'''Union'''

A simple but inefficient implementation would use: (A + B) | unique

To compute the union of two sets efficiently, it is helpful to define a function for merging sorted arrays.

```# merge input array with array x by comparing the heads of the arrays in turn;
# if both arrays are sorted, the result will be sorted:
def merge(x):
length as \$length
| (x|length) as \$xl
| if \$length == 0 then x
elif \$xl == 0 then .
else
. as \$in
| reduce range(0; \$xl + \$length) as \$z
# state [ix, xix, ans]
( [0, 0, []];
if . < \$length and ((. < \$xl and \$in[.] <= x[.]) or . == \$xl)
then [(. + 1), ., (. + [\$in[.]]) ]
else [., (. + 1), (. + [x[.]]) ]
end
) | .
end ;

def union(A;B):
A|merge(B)
| reduce .[] as \$m ([]; if length == 0 or .[length-1] != \$m then . + [\$m] else . end);
```

'''A ⊆ B'''

```def subset(A;B):
# TCO
def _subset:
if .|length == 0 then true
elif .|length == 0 then false
elif . == . then [.[1:], .[1:]] | _subset
elif . < . then false
else [ ., .[1:] ] | _subset
end;
[A,B] | _subset;
```

'''Test whether two sets intersect'''

The following implementation assumes a version of jq with ''bsearch/1''.

If A and B are sets (i.e. A == (A|unique) and B == (B|unique)), then ''[A,B] | intersect'' emits true if A and B have at least one element in common:

```def intersect:
. as \$A  | . as \$B
| (\$A|length) as \$al
| (\$B|length) as \$bl
| if \$al == 0 or \$bl == 0 then false
else
(\$B | bsearch(\$A)) as \$b
| if \$b >= 0 then true
else [\$A[1:], \$B[- (1 + \$b) :]] | intersect
end
end;

```

{{works with|lua|5.3}} (May work with earlier versions but not tested on those.)

This implementation creates, in effect, a set type with operators for comparisons (subset, equality, true subset), and set operations like unions, differences, and intersections. It is a mutable set type, so primitives exist for insertion and removal of elements. Elements can be tested for presence O(1) with the has() method or can be iterated over as an array-flavoured table since this is what the type presents as. (All of its functionality is buried in metatables.)

The code is intended to be placed into a file and accessed as a module. E.g. if placed into the file "set.lua" it would be accessed with `set = require 'set'`.

```local function new(_, ...)
local r = {}
local s = setmetatable({}, {
-- API operations
__index = {

-- single value insertion
insert = function(s, v)
if not r[v] then
table.insert(s, v)
r[v] = #s
end
return s
end,

-- single value removal
remove = function(s, v)
local i = r[v]
if i then
r[v] = nil
local t = table.remove(s)
if t ~= v then
r[t] = i
s[i] = t
end
end
return s
end,

## Maple

Sets in Maple are built-in, native data structures, and are immutable. Sets are formed by enclosing a sequence of objects between braces. You can get something essentially equivalent to set comprehensions by using {seq}, which applies the set constructor ("{}") to the sequencing operation "seq".

```
> S := { 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, Pi, "foo", { 2/3, 3/4, 4/5 } };
S := {2, 3, 5, 7, 11, "foo", Pi, {2/3, 3/4, 4/5}}

> type( S, set );
true

> Pi in S;
Pi  in  {2, 3, 5, 7, 11, "foo", Pi, {2/3, 3/4, 4/5}}

> if Pi in S then print( yes ) else print( no ) end:
yes

> member( Pi, S );
true

> if 4 in S then print( yes ) else print( no ) end:
no

> evalb( { 2/3, 3/4, 4/5 } in S );
true

> { a, b, c } union { 1, 2, 3 };
{1, 2, 3, a, b, c}

> { a, b, c } intersect { b, c, d };
{b, c}

> { a, b, c } minus { b, c, d };
{a}

> { a, b } subset { a, b, c };
true

> { a, d } subset { a, b, c };
false

> evalb( { 1, 2, 3 } = { 1, 2, 3 } );
true

> evalb( { 1, 2, 3 } = { 1, 2, 4 } );

## OCaml

OCaml offers a functional, persistent set data structure in its `Set` module. It is implemented using a binary search tree. `Set` works in the functor model, which means you need to first use the `Set.Make` functor to create a module for your kind of set that you can use. You must give the functor an argument that is a module containing the type and ordering function.

In the interactive toplevel: {{works with|OCaml|4.02+}}

```# module IntSet = Set.Make(struct type t = int let compare = compare end);; (* Create a module for our type of set *)
module IntSet :
sig
type elt = int
type t
val empty : t
val is_empty : t -> bool
val mem : elt -> t -> bool
val add : elt -> t -> t
val singleton : elt -> t
val remove : elt -> t -> t
val union : t -> t -> t
val inter : t -> t -> t
val diff : t -> t -> t
val compare : t -> t -> int
val equal : t -> t -> bool
val subset : t -> t -> bool
val iter : (elt -> unit) -> t -> unit
val fold : (elt -> 'a -> 'a) -> t -> 'a -> 'a
val for_all : (elt -> bool) -> t -> bool
val exists : (elt -> bool) -> t -> bool
val filter : (elt -> bool) -> t -> t
val partition : (elt -> bool) -> t -> t * t
val cardinal : t -> int
val elements : t -> elt list
val min_elt : t -> elt
val max_elt : t -> elt
val choose : t -> elt
val split : elt -> t -> t * bool * t
val find : elt -> t -> elt
val of_list : elt list -> t
end
# IntSet.empty;; (* Empty set. A set is an abstract type that will not display in the interpreter *)
- : IntSet.t = <abstr>
# IntSet.elements (IntSet.empty);; (* Get the previous set into a list *)
- : IntSet.elt list = []
# let s1 = IntSet.of_list [1;2;3;4;3];;
val s1 : IntSet.t = <abstr>
# IntSet.elements s1;;
- : IntSet.elt list = [1; 2; 3; 4]
# let s2 = IntSet.of_list [3;4;5;6];;
val s2 : IntSet.t = <abstr>
# IntSet.elements s2;;
- : IntSet.elt list = [3; 4; 5; 6]
# IntSet.elements (IntSet.union s1 s2);; (* Union *)
- : IntSet.elt list = [1; 2; 3; 4; 5; 6]
# IntSet.elements (IntSet.inter s1 s2);; (* Intersection *)
- : IntSet.elt list = [3; 4]
# IntSet.elements (IntSet.diff s1 s2);; (* Difference *)
- : IntSet.elt list = [1; 2]
# IntSet.subset s1 s1;; (* Subset *)
- : bool = true
# IntSet.subset (IntSet.of_list [3;1]) s1;;
- : bool = true
# IntSet.equal (IntSet.of_list [3;2;4;1]) s1;; (* Equality *)
- : bool = true
# IntSet.equal s1 s2;;
- : bool = false
# IntSet.mem 2 s1;; (* Membership *)
- : bool = true
# IntSet.mem 10 s1;;
- : bool = false
# IntSet.cardinal s1;; (* Cardinality *)
- : int = 4
# IntSet.elements (IntSet.add 99 s1);; (* Create a new set by inserting *)
- : IntSet.elt list = [1; 2; 3; 4; 99]
# IntSet.elements (IntSet.remove 3 s1);; (* Create a new set by deleting *)
- : IntSet.elt list = [1; 2; 4]
```

(Note: `of_list` is only available in OCaml 4.02+. In earlier versions, you can implement one yourself like `let of_list lst = List.fold_right IntSet.add lst IntSet.empty;;`)

Regular lists can also be used as sets.

In addition, you can use imperative hash tables from the `Hashtbl` module as a hash table-based set, using the unit type as the "value" for each key.

Alternative using dictionaries, which needs several additional visitor routines (at a pinch they could be merged), but performance is better on larger sets:

```integer set1 = new_dict(),
set2 = new_dict()
setd(3,0,set1)
setd(1,0,set1)
setd(2,0,set1)
setd(5,0,set2)
setd(3,0,set2)
setd(4,0,set2)

function element(object x, integer set)

## PicoLisp

We may use plain lists, or '[http://software-lab.de/doc/refI.html#idx idx]' structures for sets. A set may contain any type of data.

### Using lists

```(setq
Set1 (1 2 3 7 abc "def" (u v w))
Set2 (2 3 5 hello (x y z))
Set3 (3 hello (x y z)) )

# Element tests (any non-NIL value means "yes")
: (member "def" Set1)
-> ("def" (u v w))

: (member "def" Set2)
-> NIL

: (member '(x y z) Set2)
-> ((x y z))

# Union
: (uniq (append Set1 Set2))
-> (1 2 3 7 abc "def" (u v w) 5 hello (x y z))

# Intersection
: (sect Set1 Set2)
-> (2 3)

# Difference
: (diff Set1 Set2)
-> (1 7 abc "def" (u v w))

# Test for subset
: (not (diff Set1 Set2))
-> NIL  # Set1 is not a subset of Set2

: (not (diff Set3 Set2))
-> T  # Set3 is a subset of Set2

# Test for equality
: (= (sort (copy Set1)) (sort (copy Set2)))
-> NIL

: (= (sort (copy Set2)) (sort (copy Set2)))
-> T
```

===Using 'idx' structures===

```# Create three test-sets
(balance 'Set1 (1 2 3 7 abc "def" (u v w)))
(balance 'Set2 (2 3 5 hello (x y z)))
(balance 'Set3 (3 hello (x y z)))

# Get contents
: (idx 'Set1)
-> (1 2 3 7 abc "def" (u v w))

: (idx 'Set2)
-> (2 3 5 hello (x y z))

# Element tests (any non-NIL value means "yes")
: (idx 'Set1 "def")
-> ("def" (abc) (u v w))

: (idx 'Set2 "def")
-> NIL

: (idx 'Set2 '(x y z))
-> ((x y z))

# Union
: (use S
(balance 'S (idx 'Set1))
(balance 'S (idx 'Set2) T)
(idx 'S) )
-> (1 2 3 5 7 abc "def" hello (u v w) (x y z))

# Intersection
: (sect (idx 'Set1) (idx 'Set2))
-> (2 3)

# Difference
: (diff (idx 'Set1) (idx 'Set2))
-> (1 7 abc "def" (u v w))

# Test for subset
: (not (diff (idx 'Set1) (idx 'Set2)))
-> NIL  # Set1 is not a subset of Set2

: (not (diff (idx 'Set3) (idx 'Set2)))
-> T  # Set3 is a subset of Set2

# Test for equality
: (= (idx 'Set1) (idx 'Set2))
-> NIL

: (= (idx 'Set2) (idx 'Set2))
-> T
```

## PowerShell

.NET offers the '''HashSet''' type which seems to act in most ways like a set.

When used in PowerShell, the syntax is clumsy. In addition, the "reference" set (`\$set1`) is modified in place to become the result. (All examples assume the variable `\$set1` contains the value `@(1,2,3,4)`)

```
[System.Collections.Generic.HashSet[object]]\$set1 = 1..4
[System.Collections.Generic.HashSet[object]]\$set2 = 3..6

#            Operation           +     Definition      +          Result
#--------------------------------+---------------------+-------------------------
\$set1.UnionWith(\$set2)           # Union                 \$set1 = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
\$set1.IntersectWith(\$set2)       # Intersection          \$set1 = 3, 4
\$set1.ExceptWith(\$set2)          # Difference            \$set1 = 1, 2
\$set1.SymmetricExceptWith(\$set2) # Symmetric difference  \$set1 = 1, 2, 6, 5
\$set1.IsSupersetOf(\$set2)        # Test superset         False
\$set1.IsSubsetOf(\$set2)          # Test subset           False
\$set1.Equals(\$set2)              # Test equality         False
\$set1.IsProperSupersetOf(\$set2)  # Test proper superset  False
\$set1.IsProperSubsetOf(\$set2)    # Test proper subset    False

5 -in \$set1                      # Test membership       False
7 -notin \$set1                   # Test non-membership   True

{{works with|SWI-Prolog|library(ordset)}}

SWI-Prolog provides a standard [http://www.swi-prolog.org/pldoc/man?section=ordsets:Link library(ordsets)]. It is loaded by default. I demonstrate almost all of these predicates in the interactive top-level (`?-` is the prompt). Variables prefixed with `\$` refer back to the value of the last instantiation. It treats sets as ordered lists of unique elements:

```
%%  Set creation

?- list_to_ord_set([1,2,3,4], A), list_to_ord_set([2,4,6,8], B).
A = [1, 2, 3, 4],
B = [2, 4, 6, 8].

%% Test m ∈ S -- "m is an element in set S"

?- ord_memberchk(2, \$A).
true.

%% A ∪ B -- union; a set of all elements either in set A or in set B.

?- ord_union(\$A, \$B, Union).
Union = [1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8].

%% A ∩ B -- intersection; a set of all elements in both set A and set B.

?- ord_intersection(\$A, \$B, Intersection).
Intersection = [2, 4].

%% A ∖ B -- difference; a set of all elements in set A, except those in set B.

?- ord_subtract(\$A, \$B, Diff).
Diff = [1, 3].

%% A ⊆ B -- subset; true if every element in set A is also in set B.

?- ord_subset(\$A, \$B).
false.

?- ord_subset([2,4], \$B).
true.

%% A = B -- equality; true if every element of set A is in set B and vice-versa.

?- \$A == \$B.
false.

?- \$A == [1,2,3,4].
true.

%% Definition of a proper subset:

ord_propsubset(A, B) :-
ord_subset(A, B),
\+(A == B).

NewA = [1, 2, 3, 4, 19].

NewerA = [1, 2, 4, 19].

## Python

In Python, `[http://docs.python.org/py3k/library/stdtypes.html#set-types-set-frozenset set]` is a standard type since Python 2.4. There is also `frozenset` which is an immutable version of `set`. (In Python 2.3, they were provided as `Set` and `ImmutableSet` types in the module `sets`.)

Language syntax for set literals is supported starting in Python 3.0 and 2.7. (For versions prior to 2.7, use `set([1, 2, 3, 4])` instead of `{1, 2, 3, 4}`. Even in Python 2.7+ and 3.0+, it is necessary to write `set()` to express the empty set.) {{works with|Python|2.7+ and 3.0+}}

## Ruby

Ruby's standard library contains a "set" package, which provides `Set` and `SortedSet` classes.

``` require 'set'

>> s1 | s2 # Union

>> s1 & s2 # Intersection
=> #<Set: {3, 4}>
>> s1 - s2 # Difference
=> #<Set: {1, 2}>
>> s1.proper_subset?(s1) # Proper subset
=> false
>> Set[3, 1].proper_subset?(s1) # Proper subset

## Tcl

Sets in Tcl are modeled as lists of items, with operations that preserve uniqueness of membership. {{tcllib|struct::set}}

```package require struct::set

# Many ways to build sets
set s1 [list 1 2 3 4]
set s2 {3 4 5 6}
struct::set add s3 {2 3 4 3 2};   # \$s3 will be proper set...
set item 5

puts "union: [struct::set union \$s1 \$s2]"
puts "intersection: [struct::set intersect \$s1 \$s2]"
puts "difference: [struct::set difference \$s1 \$s2]"
puts "membership predicate: [struct::set contains \$s1 \$item]"
puts "subset predicate: [struct::set subsetof \$s1 \$s2]";   # NB: not strict subset test!
puts "equality predicate: [struct::set equal \$s1 \$s2]"

# Adding an element to a set (note that we pass in the name of the variable holding the set):
struct::set include s3 \$item
# Removing an element from a set:
struct::set exclude s3 \$item
# Getting the cardinality:
puts "cardinality: [struct::set size \$s3]
