Array::Frugal - Arrays that re-use deleted indices
use Array::Frugal; my $stash = new Array::Frugal; $index = $stash->PUSH(34); print $stash->FETCH($index); # prints 34; $stash->DELETE($index); # $index can be re-used now
Frugal as in memory use. Instead of continuing to count upwards toward MAXINT, when an element is deleted from a frugal array the index is available for re-use.
Currently new, PUSH, FETCH, STORE, and DELETE are all the methods that are defined, but this may become tieable in a future release.
