Subject [jira] [Commented] (LANG-1387) Add Span interfaces to handle checks for overlaps, containment, equality, etc.
Date Mon, 16 Apr 2018 12:04:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-1387?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16439344#comment-16439344
] 

Claude Warren commented on LANG-1387:
-------------------------------------

is there any update on this?  Any further thinking about where to place this?

I think it does not belong in
 * Numbers as it is not a type of number (primes, complex, etc.)
 * Collections as it is not a collection unto itself.  It can be used to track position in
collections but it does not have a reference or pointer to a collection of objects.

 

Is there a reason not to put it in lang?

> This is a contribution of a span class as discussed on the mailing list.
> The classes are int and long based and can:
>  # determine if points are within the span.
>  # determine if one span contains another span
>  # determine if two spans overlap
>  # do not have to have 0 (zero) as the index origin.
>  # determine the length of the span
>  # determine the last position in the span.
>  # determine the first position in the span.
> Changes to Number Utils required to detect underflow and overflow calculations.
