Interface CharList

All Superinterfaces:
CharCollection, CharIterable, Collection<Character>, Comparable<List<? extends Character>>, Iterable<Character>, List<Character>
All Known Implementing Classes:
AbstractCharList, AbstractCharList.CharSubList, CharArrayList, CharLists.EmptyList, CharLists.Singleton, CharLists.SynchronizedList, CharLists.SynchronizedRandomAccessList, CharLists.UnmodifiableList, CharLists.UnmodifiableRandomAccessList

public interface CharList
extends List<Character>, Comparable<List<? extends Character>>, CharCollection
A type-specific List; provides some additional methods that use polymorphism to avoid (un)boxing.

Note that this type-specific interface extends Comparable: it is expected that implementing classes perform a lexicographical comparison using the standard operator "less then" for primitive types, and the usual compareTo() method for objects.

Additionally, this interface strengthens listIterator(), listIterator(int) and subList(int,int).

Besides polymorphic methods, this interfaces specifies methods to copy into an array or remove contiguous sublists. Although the abstract implementation of this interface provides simple, one-by-one implementations of these methods, it is expected that concrete implementation override them with optimized versions.

    • sort

      default void sort​(CharComparator comparator)
      Sort a list using a type-specific comparator.

      Pass null to sort using natural ordering.

      Since:
      8.3.0
      See Also:
      List.sort(java.util.Comparator)
      Implementation Notes:
      The default implementation dumps the elements into an array using List.toArray(), sorts the array, then replaces all elements using the setElements(char[]) function.

      It is possible for this method to call unstableSort(java.util.Comparator<? super java.lang.Character>) if it can determine that the results of a stable and unstable sort are completely equivalent. This means if you override unstableSort(java.util.Comparator<? super java.lang.Character>), it should not call this method unless you override this method as well.

    • unstableSort

      @Deprecated default void unstableSort​(Comparator<? super Character> comparator)
      Deprecated.
      Please use the corresponding type-specific method instead.
      Sorts this list using a sort not assured to be stable.
    • unstableSort

      default void unstableSort​(CharComparator comparator)
      Sorts this list using a sort not assured to be stable.

      Pass null to sort using natural ordering.

      This differs from List.sort(java.util.Comparator) in that the results are not assured to be stable, but may be a bit faster.

      Unless a subclass specifies otherwise, the results of the method if the list is concurrently modified during the sort are unspecified.

      Since:
      8.3.0
      Implementation Notes:
      The default implementation dumps the elements into an array using List.toArray(), sorts the array, then replaces all elements using the setElements(char[]) function.
