Welcome to the C++ part of the Sux project.
The classes we provide fall into three categories:
Static structures for ranking and selection based on the paper "Broadword Implementation of Rank/Select Queries". We provide also an implementation of the Elias-Fano representation of monotone sequences that can be used as an opportunistic bitvector representation.
Fenwick trees with bounded leaf size, and associated dynamic structures for ranking and selection based on the paper "Compact Fenwick Trees for Dynamic Ranking and Selection" (with Stefano Marchini).
Minimal perfect hashing functions based on the paper "RecSplit: Minimal Perfect Hashing via Recursive Splitting" (with Emmanuel Esposito and Thomas Mueller Graf).
All classes are heavily asserted. For testing speed, remember to use
Documentation can be generated by running
All provided classes are templates, so you just have to copy the files in
sux directory somewhere in your include path.
make fenwick and
make dynranksek will generate binaries in
bin with which you can test the
speed of RecSplit, rank/select static structures, compact Fenwick trees
and dynamic rank/select structures. Note that you can set the
LEAF to change the leaf size of RecSplit, as in
make recsplit LEAF=4, and the variable
ALLOC_TYPE to the possible values of
sux::util::AllocType to experiment, for example, with transparent huge
pages on Linux.
For ranking and selection, we generate one binary for each type of structure, with some variation on parameters (see the makefile for more details). Beside the number of bits, you can provide one or two probabilities. Bits will be set to one with the given probability in the first half of the test array, and with the second probability in the second half (if no second probability is specified, it is assumed to be equal to the first one). This setup is necessary to show the slow behaviour of naive implementations on half-almost-empty-half-almost-full arrays.
For RecSplit, we provide dump/load binaries which dump on disk a minimal perfect hash function, and test it. The standard version uses a keys file for the keys, whereas the “128” version uses 128-bit random keys. We suggest the latter for benchmarking as in any case the first step in RecSplit construction is mapping to 128-bit hashes.
