The goal of
pybloomfiltermmap is simple: to provide a fast, simple, scalable,
correct library for Bloom Filters in Python.
This fork of the project fixes some issues when using a lot of these objects and/or an erroneous error message ;).
You should probably read the original docs online at http://mike.axiak.net/python-bloom-filter/docs/html/
After you install, the interface to use is a cross between a file interface and a ste interface. As an example:
>>> fruit = pybloomfilter.BloomFilter(100000, 0.1, '/tmp/words.bloom') >>> fruit.extend(('apple', 'pear', 'orange', 'apple')) >>> len(bf) 3 >>> 'mike' in fruit False
You may or may not want to use Cython. If you have it installed, the setup file will build the C file from the pyx file. Otherwise, it will skip that step automatically and build from the packaged C file.
$ sudo python setup.py install
and you should be set.
