      • EMPTY_FUNCTION

        public static final Float2CharFunctions.EmptyFunction EMPTY_FUNCTION
        An empty type-specific function (immutable). It is serializable and cloneable.
    • Method Detail

      • singleton

        public static Float2CharFunction singleton​(float key,
                                                   char value)
        Returns a type-specific immutable function containing only the specified pair. The returned function is serializable and cloneable.

        Note that albeit the returned function is immutable, its default return value may be changed.

        Parameters:
        key - the only key of the returned function.
        value - the only value of the returned function.
        Returns:
        a type-specific immutable function containing just the pair <key,value>.
      • singleton

        public static Float2CharFunction singleton​(Float key,
                                                   Character value)
        Returns a type-specific immutable function containing only the specified pair. The returned function is serializable and cloneable.

        Note that albeit the returned function is immutable, its default return value may be changed.

        Parameters:
        key - the only key of the returned function.
        value - the only value of the returned function.
        Returns:
        a type-specific immutable function containing just the pair <key,value>.
      • synchronize

        public static Float2CharFunction synchronize​(Float2CharFunction f,
                                                     Object sync)
        Returns a synchronized type-specific function backed by the given type-specific function, using an assigned object to synchronize.
        Parameters:
        f - the function to be wrapped in a synchronized function.
        sync - an object that will be used to synchronize the access to the function.
        Returns:
        a synchronized view of the specified function.

      • primitive

        public static Float2CharFunction primitive​(Function<? super Float,​? extends Character> f)
        Returns a (partial) type-specific function based on the given total generic function.

        The returned function contains all keys which are not mapped to null. If the function already is a primitive function, it is returned without changes.

        Warning: If the given function is a “widened” primitive function (e.g. an Int2IntFunction given to Short2ShortFunctions), it still is wrapped into a proxy, decreasing performance.

        Parameters:
        f - the function to be converted to a type-specific function.
        Returns:
        a primitive view of the specified function.
        Throws:
        NullPointerException - if f is null.
        Since:
