Travis-CI ::

ebloom is a NIF wrapper around a basic bloom filter.

Quick Start

You must have Erlang/OTP R13B04 or later and a GNU-style build system to compile and run ebloom.

git clone git://
cd ebloom

Start up an Erlang shell with the path to ebloom included.

erl -pa path/to/ebloom/ebin

Create a new bloom filter, insert elements, and test for an elements presence.

1> PredictedElementCount=5.
2> FalsePositiveProbability=0.01.

3> RandomSeed=123.
4> {ok, Ref} = ebloom:new(PredictedElementCount, FalsePositiveProbability, RandomSeed).
5> ebloom:insert(Ref, <<"abcdef">>).
6> true = ebloom:contains(Ref, <<"abcdef">>).
7> false = ebloom:contains(Ref, <<"zzzzzz">>).
