public interface Char2ReferenceSortedMap<V>
extends Char2ReferenceMap<V>, java.util.SortedMap<java.lang.Character,​V>
A type-specific SortedMap; provides some additional methods that use polymorphism to avoid (un)boxing.

Additionally, this interface strengthens entrySet(), keySet(), values(), comparator(), SortedMap.subMap(Object,Object), SortedMap.headMap(Object) and SortedMap.tailMap(Object).

    • subMap

      Char2ReferenceSortedMap<V> subMap​(char fromKey, char toKey)
      Returns a view of the portion of this sorted map whose keys range from fromKey, inclusive, to toKey, exclusive.

      Note that this specification strengthens the one given in SortedMap.subMap(Object,Object).
