All That Collection Source Code


I noticed that Peter Golde got the first source drop of the PowerCollections posted… Peter is just starting this project, so there is plenty of room for your feedback.


 


In an unrelated note, Peter Sestoft and co just posted a very complete version of their C5 project.  Sestoft’s project is much more complete and is a parallel library to System.Collections.Generic library rather than the PowerCollections library which is a natural extension of the BCL library. 


 


As for a more detailed compare and contrasts, I’d be interested in your opinions and maybe we can get the Peter’s to comment on each others efforts 😉

  1. I think that System.Collections and System.Collections.Generic is a functional but simplistic and awkward framework that makes it difficult to integrate more sophisticated data structures.

    I like the interface heirarchy of the C5 collection classes, as opposed to the set of concrete implementations presented by the powercollections. The interface-driven approach allows for competing and/or specialized implementations and, as a result, I think it will have greater longetivity.
