rufus-lru

LruHash class, a Hash with a max size, controlled by a LRU mechanism

getting it

  gem install rufus-lru

or at

rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=4812

usage

It’s a regular hash, but you have to set a maxsize at instantiation.

Once the maxsize is reached, the hash will discard the element that was the least recently used (hence LRU).

  require 'rubygems'
  require 'rufus/lru'

  h = LruHash.new 3

  5.times { |i| h[i] = "a" * i }

  puts h.inspect # >> {2=>"aa", 3=>"aaa", 4=>"aaaa"}

  h[:newer] = "b"

  puts h.inspect # >> {:newer=>"b", 3=>"aaa", 4=>"aaaa"}

dependencies
