Expand description

Defines a Collate trait to standardize collation methods across data types. The provided Collator struct can be used to collate a collection of slices of type T where T: Ord. Also provides bisect (with a Range), bisect_left, and bisect_right methods.

Collate is useful for implementing a B-Tree, or to handle cases where a collator type is more efficient than calling Ord::cmp repeatedly, for example when collating localized strings using rust_icu_ucol.


let collator = Collator::default();
let collection = [
    [1, 2, 3],
    [2, 3, 4],
    [3, 4, 5],

assert_eq!(collator.bisect_left(&collection, &[1]), 0);
assert_eq!(collator.bisect_right(&collection, &[1]), 1);


A generic collator for any type T: Ord.

A range for use with the Collate trait.


Defines methods to collate a collection of slices of type Value, given a comparator.
