##What is it? Adaptive-CSA is a Succinct Data Structure(SDS),SDS can represent an object as implicitly,and in space close to information-theoretic lower bound of the object while supporting operations of the original object efficiently. CSA and FM both are implicit expression about SA(Suffix array),has the ability of fast pattern mathing,and needs little space,and Adapative-CSA is faster and smaller than Normal-CSA,Adapative-CSA is a advanced version of the original CSA.As you can guess,we developed a set of coding methods,for each pieces of data,always select the best one,that's the bigest secret about my works. It works like a mixture of KMP and Bzip2,you can build a CSA-index for a document,and then you have mainly there operations in your hands:

counting:count how many a pattern occurs in the document
locating:locate all the positions where the pattern occurs
extracting:decompress a piece of the document

##How to use it ###just for fun step 1:download or clone it step 2:make step 3:run my_csa ###build your own program step 1:download or clone it step 2:make step 3:include CSA.h step 4:g++ your_program.cpp -o xx csa.a ###example ```cpp #include"CSA.h" #include using namespace std; int main() { CSA csa("filename"); int num; csa.counting(pattern,num); cout<<"pattern "<<pattern<<" occs "<<num<<" times"<<endl;

	int *pos=csa.locating(pattern,num);
	cout<<"pattern "<<pattern<<" occs "<<num<<" times"<<endl;
	cout<<"all positions are:"<<endl;
	for(int i=0;i<num;i++)
	delete [] pos;

	int start=0;
	int len=20;
	unsigned char *sequence=csa.extracting(start,len);
	cout<<"T[start...start+len-1] is "<<sequence<<endl;
	//it's your duty to delete sequence;
	delete [] sequence;
	sequence =NULL;"index.csa");
	CSA csa2;

	return 0;


##ChangeLog 2014.9.14: Want to finsh the hybrid work in Czip, hybrid will help to make
CSA small and faster. And decoding from left or right self-adapting
may help a lot to speed,but we need to split the middle runs, this may do little harm to space, but good for speed,
that's what we need, and for Pure-Gamma-coding ,space will
not increase,that's good.This time,when decoding gamma-sequence,
don't want use the lookup tables, it do not help lot as we need,
and it does great harm to the beauty of the code.
2014.10.6: add class UseCount,Shallow Copy for operator = and copy cons for CSA
2014.10.7: the framwork is Ok,what to do next is to make the query functions work
right,and then,focus on Phi class
2014.10.8: Save and Load function for CSA is OK.Phi class is on the way. I design three code/decode mehod:three are:pure-gamma,rl+gamma,ALL1, both are good at different situations.
2014.10.8: code Phi array using three methods,it seems right...
2014.10.9: I am sure that code is right. leftboundary and rightboundary function are on the way. For the backward search, first do a binary search on the sampled anchors,and then decode a block,the costs on binary search and sequence-decode diffs not very much,so decoding from right or left side will not help a lot,so,forget it!
2014.10.9: getValue for Phi is OK now...
2014.10.9: Boundary function is finshed,but is right?
2014.10.10:Boundary function seems right,because countSearch2 seems right. next we need compare the results of counfSearch and countSearch2. countSearch is a baseline,it's absolutely right!
2014.10.10:The size function is ok,it seems right.And add compressRatio function
2014.10.11:EveryThing seems right now. For highlyrepetive data,the block size is bigger,it is good to speed,and do little harm to query's speed.
2014.10.11:Adjust the threshold,so the block-size is more reasonable.This work is closed temporary,goodbye! 2014.10.26:It seems that lookuptables is helpful, so use it again. And fix some bugs,about leftboundary ,rightboundary ,methodAndSpace and codeAndFill it's humiliatory that everything seems not ok until now
2014.10.27:we can do something to make compression ratio better: Now we use run-length like this: if the value is a real gap, coding 2value-3 using gamma-coding. if the value is a 1's runs, coding 2value using gamma-coding. the ratio of gap not equals 1 is very low, especailly for highly-repetive data, so the cost for 2value-3 is trivial,but for 1's runs,the cost is a littler high, especially for english-like and highly-repetive data, there are many runs in these datas,so if we do like this,the cost will be smaller: if the value is a real gap, the coding value is 2value-1 now; if the value is a runs,the coding value is 2*value, same as before. because the low ratio,the change of real gap is trivial. what important is: now all the coding value is >1,at least is 2, for the gamma-coding,the 0's num preceding the binary-bits of the value is at least 1, so we can change the gamma-coding's rule: if the binary-bits's length is x,we append x-2 0s on the head, now we will save 1 bit for every single value, compare with the original mapping method, the real gap will cost 1 bit more at most time,but for the 1's runs, 1 bit will saved. so it will be helpful for highly-repetive data. working on it now! In fact u8 for lookuptables is enough, fix it 2014.10.28: new mapping method helps,but not very much,it seems that for rl, delta coding will be better 2014.10.28:delta coding will be better for run-length. 2014.10.28:delta coding is really better than gamma coding for highly-repetive data, and we use the new maping for real gap and runs. 2014.10.28:shrink the lookup-tables may will be helpful to speed. 2014.10.29:shrink tables help alittle,for xml file 10000 parten with length 20, the average count time:45us-->40us,and fix a bug about shrink. 2014.10.31:refactor, and the Adapative_CSA is closed
