Quick question: is there some implementation of an array that could use an enum as an index? Or would it be straightforward to implement one? Where would I start. (Using an enum as an array index is a common thing in languages I’m used to like Pascal, and it’s a useful thing in some contexts).
How many enum’s do you have? That sounds more like a Dict object. You could do something like like:
@enum Fruit apple=1 orange=2 kiwi=3 Base.getindex(a::AbstractArray, i::Fruit) = getindex(a, Int(i)) Base.setindex!(a::AbstractArray, v, i::Fruit) = setindex!(a, v, Int(i)) a = zeros(3) a[orange] = 57.0 a[orange]
Not sure if that would be considered type piracy.
It’s not type piracy as long as
Fruit is a type that you defined, so this should be fine.
Oh, that’s nice: thanks.
