    Binary Trees Build Status

    This package provides Binary and Red-Black Search Trees written in Javascript. It is released under the MIT License.

    Binary Search Trees are a good way to store data in sorted order. A Red-Black tree is a variation of a Binary Tree that balances itself.

    Algorithms were taken from Julienne Walker: http://eternallyconfuzzled.com/jsw_home.aspx

    Trees

    • BinTree - Binary Search Tree
    • RBTree - Red-Black Tree

    Quickstart

    node.js:

    npm install bintrees
    
    var RBTree = require('bintrees').RBTree;
     
    var tree = new RBTree(function(a, b) { return a - b; });
     
    tree.insert(2);
    tree.insert(-3);

    see examples/node.js for more info

    In the browser:

    <script src="/path/to/rbtree.js"></script>
    <script>
        var tree = new RBTree(function(a, b) { return a - b; });
        tree.insert(0);
        tree.insert(1);
    </script> 

    see examples/client.html for more info

    Constructor

    Requires 1 argument: a comparator function f(a,b) which returns:

    • 0 if a == b
    • 0 if a > b

    • <0 if a < b

    Methods

    insert(item)

    Inserts the item into the tree. Returns true if inserted, false if duplicate.

    remove(item)

    Removes the item from the tree. Returns true if removed, false if not found.

    size

    Number of nodes in the tree.

    clear()

    Removes all nodes from the tree.

    find(item)

    Returns node data if found, null otherwise.

    findIter(item)

    Returns an iterator to the node if found, null otherwise.

    lowerBound(item)

    Returns an iterator to the tree node at or immediately after the item. Returns null-iterator if tree is empty.

    NOTE: Changed in version 1.0.0 to match C++ lower_bound

    upperBound(item)

    Returns an iterator to the tree node immediately after the item. Returns null-iterator if tree is empty.

    NOTE: Changed in version 1.0.0 to match C++ upper_bound

    min()

    Returns the min node data in the tree, or null if the tree is empty.

    max()

    Returns the max node data in the tree, or null if the tree is empty.

    each(f)

    Calls f on each node's data, in order.

    reach(f)

    Calls f on each node's data, in reverse order.

    iterator()

    Returns a null-iterator. See Iterators section below.

    Iterators

    tree.iterator() will return a null-iterator. On a null iterator,

    • next() will return the first element in the tree
    • prev() will return the last element in the tree

    Otherwise,

    • next() will return the next element
    • prev() will return the previous element
    • data() will return the node the iterator is pointing to

    When iteration reaches the end, the iterator becomes a null-iterator again.

    Forward iteration example:

    var it=tree.iterator(), item;
    while((item = it.next()) !== null) {
        // do stuff with item 
    }

    If you are iterating forward through the tree, you can always call prev() to go back, and vice versa.

    NOTE: iterators become invalid when you add or remove elements from the tree.
