trait Set[A]
extends Set[A] with Scriptable[Message[A]]
This class represents mutable sets. Concrete set implementations just have to provide functionality for the abstract methods in scala.collection.Set as well as for +=, -= and clear.

override def clone : Set[A]
Return a clone of this set.
def excl (elems : A*) : Unit
excl removes many elements from the set.
def incl (elems : A*) : Unit
incl can be used to add many elements to the set at the same time.
def intersect (that : Set[A]) : Unit
This method computes an intersection with set that. It removes all the elements that are not present in that.
def readOnly : Set[A]
Return a read-only projection of this set
def retain (p : (A) => Boolean) : Unit
Method retain removes all elements from the set for which the predicate p yields the value false.
def update (elem : A, included : Boolean) : Unit
This method allows one to add or remove an element elem from this set depending on the value of parameter included. Typically, one would use the following syntax:
set(elem) = true

def update(elem : A, included : Boolean) : Unit
This method allows one to add or remove an element elem from this set depending on the value of parameter included. Typically, one would use the following syntax:
set(elem) = true

abstract def +=(elem : A) : Unit

Parameters
elem - the element to be added

def +=(elem1 : A, elem2 : A, elems : A*) : Unit
Add two or more elements to this set.
Parameters
elem1 - the first element.
kv2 - the second element.
kvs - the remaining elements.

def ++=(elems : Iterable[A]) : Unit
Add all the elements provided by an iterator of the iterable object that to the set.
Parameters
elems - the iterable object containing the elements to be added

def ++=(elems : Iterator[A]) : Unit
Add all the elements provided by an iterator elems to the set.
Parameters
elems - the iterator containing the elements to be added

def +(elem : A) : Set[A]
Add a new element to the set.
Returns
the set itself with the element added.
Parameters

Parameters
elems - the iterator containing the elements to be added

@deprecated

def incl(elems : A*) : Unit
