In my tests, using unordered-containers was slightly slower than using Ord, although as the number of repeated elements grows unordered-containers appears to have an advantage. I'm sure the relative costs of comparison vs hashing would affect this also. But both are dramatically better than the current nub.
Has anyone looked at Bart's patches to see how difficult it would be to apply them (or re-write them)? On Mon, Jul 15, 2013 at 8:43 PM, Clark Gaebel <cgae...@uwaterloo.ca> wrote: > Apologies.
