public interface Reference2CharMap<K>
extends Reference2CharFunction<K>, java.util.Map<K,​java.lang.Character>
A type-specific Map; provides some additional methods that use polymorphism to avoid (un)boxing, and handling of a default return value.

Besides extending the corresponding type-specific function, this interface strengthens Map.entrySet(), keySet() and values(). Moreover, a number of methods, such as size(), defaultReturnValue(), etc., are un-defaulted as their function default do not make sense for a map. Maps returning entry sets of type Reference2CharMap.FastEntrySet support also fast iteration.

This interface specifies reference equality semantics (members will be compared equal with == instead of equals) for its keys or values (or both), which may result in breaks in contract if attempted to be used with non reference-equality semantics based Maps. For example, a aReferenceToIntMap.equals(aObjectToIntMap) may return different a different result then aObjectToIntMap.equals(aReferenceToIntMap), in violation of equals's contract requiring it being symmetric.

A submap or subset may or may not have an independent default return value (which however must be initialized to the default return value of the originator).

      Parameters:
      key - key with which the specified value is to be associated.
      mappingFunction - the function to compute a value.
      Returns:

      If the specified key is not already associated with a value, attempts to compute its value using the given mapping function and enters it into this map, unless the key is not present in the given mapping function.

      This version of computeIfAbsent() uses a type-specific version of fastutil's Function. Since Function has a containsKey() method, it is possible to avoid adding a key by having containsKey() return false for that key.

      key - key with which the specified value is to be associated.
      mappingFunction - the function to compute a value.
      Returns:

    • computeChar

      default char computeChar​(K key, java.util.function.BiFunction<? super K,​? super java.lang.Character,​? extends java.lang.Character> remappingFunction)
      Attempts to compute a mapping for the specified key and its current mapped value (or null if there is no current mapping).

      If the function returns null, the mapping is removed (or remains absent if initially absent). If the function itself throws an (unchecked) exception, the exception is rethrown, and the current mapping is left unchanged.

      Parameters:
      key - key with which the specified value is to be associated.
      remappingFunction - the function to compute a value.
      Returns:

      If the specified key is not already associated with a value, associates it with the given value. Otherwise, replaces the associated value with the results of the given remapping function, or removes if the result is null.
      Parameters:

      value - the value to be merged with the existing value associated with the key or, if no existing value is associated with the key, to be associated with the key.
      remappingFunction - the function to recompute a value if present.
      Returns:
      the new value associated with the specified key, or the default return value if no value is associated with the key.

      Map.merge(Object, Object, java.util.function.BiFunction)
      API Notes:
      The JDK specification for this method equates not being associated with a value with being associated with {code null}. This is not the case for this method. Moreover, this method cannot delete entries as the type-specific remapping function cannot return null.
    • mergeChar

      default char mergeChar​(K key, char value, java.util.function.IntBinaryOperator remappingFunction)
      If the specified key is not already associated with a value, associates it with the given value. Otherwise, replaces the associated value with the results of the given remapping function.
      Parameters:
      key - key with which the resulting value is to be associated.
      value - the value to be merged with the existing value associated with the key or, if no existing value is associated with the key, to be associated with the key.
      remappingFunction - the function to recompute a value if present.
      Returns:
      the new value associated with the specified key.

      Implementation Notes:
      Unless the argument is type-specific, this method will introduce an intermediary lambda to perform narrowing and widening casts. Please use the type-specific overload to avoid this overhead.
