class ListMap

[source: scala/collection/immutable/ListMap.scala]

@serializable

class ListMap[A, +B]
extends Map[A, B]
This class implements immutable maps using a list-based data structure. Instances of ListMap represent empty maps; they can be either created by calling the constructor directly, or by applying the function ListMap.empty.

Method Summary
def - (key : A) : ListMap[A, B]
This creates a new mapping without the given key. If the map does not contain a mapping for the given key, the method returns the same map.
def elements : Iterator[(A, B)]
Returns an iterator over key-value pairs.
def empty [C] : ListMap[A, C]
Returns a new ListMap instance mapping keys of the same type to values of type C.
def get (key : A) : Option[B]
Checks if this map maps key to a value and return the value if it exists.
protected def key : A
protected def next : ListMap[A, B]
def size : Int
Returns the number of mappings in this map.
def update [B1 >: B](key : A, value : B1) : ListMap[A, B1]
This method allows one to create a new map with an additional mapping from key to value. If the map contains already a mapping for key, it will be overridden by this function.

Method Details
def empty[C] : ListMap[A, C]
Returns a new ListMap instance mapping keys of the same type to values of type C.
Overrides
Map.empty

def size : Int
Returns the number of mappings in this map.
Returns
number of mappings in this map.

def get(key : A) : Option[B]
Checks if this map maps key to a value and return the value if it exists.
Parameters
key - the key of the mapping of interest
Returns
the value of the mapping, if it exists

def update[B1 >: B](key : A, value : B1) : ListMap[A, B1]
This method allows one to create a new map with an additional mapping from key to value. If the map contains already a mapping for key, it will be overridden by this function.
Parameters
key - the key element of the updated entry.
value - the value element of the updated entry.
Overrides
Map.update

def -(key : A) : ListMap[A, B]
This creates a new mapping without the given key. If the map does not contain a mapping for the given key, the method returns the same map.
Parameters
key - a map without a mapping for the given key.
Overrides
Map.-

def elements : Iterator[(A, B)]
Returns an iterator over key-value pairs.
