We call these type converter functions.
Constructing a new map is done by letting an expression K be associated with another expression V: Any expression is first evaluated and then the resulting terms are used as key and value respectively. If two matching keys are declared, the latter key takes precedence.
The syntactic order of the key-value pairs in the construction is of no relevance, except in the recently mentioned case of two matching keys. Updating Maps Updating a map has a similar syntax as constructing it. An expression defining the map to be updated, is put in front of the expression defining the keys to be updated and their respective values: If key K does not match any existing key in the map, a new association is created from key K to value V.
If key K matches an existing key in map M, its associated value is replaced by the new value V. In both cases, the evaluated map expression returns a new map. If M is not of type map, an exception of type badmap is thrown. To only update an existing value, the following syntax is used: If key K does not match any existing keys in map M, an exception of type badarg is triggered at runtime.
If a matching key K is present in map M, its associated value is replaced by the new value V, and the evaluated map expression returns a new map.
Here M0 is any map.
It follows that M M4 are maps as well. The syntactic order of the key-value pairs in the update is of no relevance, except in the case where two keys match. In that case, the latter value is used.
Matching of key-value associations from maps is done as follows: The key K must be an expression with bound variables or literals. V can be any pattern with either bound or unbound variables.
If the variable V is unbound, it becomes bound to the value associated with the key K, which must exist in the map M. If the variable V is bound, it must match the value associated with K in M.
This binds variable B to integer 2. Similarly, multiple values from the map can be matched: Kn are any expressions with literals or bound variables. If all keys exist in map M, all variables in V Vn is matched to the associated values of their respective keys. If the matching conditions are not met, the match fails, either with: This is if it is used in the context of the match operator as in the example.
Or resulting in the next clause being tested in function heads and case expressions. Matching in maps only allows for: The order in which keys are declared in matching has no relevance. Duplicate keys are allowed in matching and match each pattern associated to the keys: Matching Syntax Matching of literals as keys are allowed in function heads: Two guard BIFs handle maps: Each element Ei is a value, followed by an optional size expression and an optional type specifier list.
If the expression is not a single literal or variable, it is to be enclosed in parentheses. Used in a bit string matching, Value must be a variable, or an integer, float, or string.
Used in a bit string construction, Size is an expression that is to evaluate to an integer. Used in a bit string matching, Size must be an integer, or a variable bound to an integer.
The value of Size specifies the size of the segment in units see below. The default value depends on the type see below: For integer it is 8. For float it is Configuring Expressions in Amazon CloudSearch.
