       Judy functions - C libraries for creating and accessing dynamic arrays

       Judy1  - maps an Index (word) to a bit
       JudyL  - maps an Index (word) to a word
       JudySL - maps an Index (string) to a word

       The  Judy  family  of  functions	 supports fully dynamic arrays.	 These
       arrays may be indexed by a 32- or 64-bit word (depending on the proces‐
       sor)  or	 a  string.  A dynamic array that is sparsely populated can be
       thought of as a mapping function.  There are 3 different Judy  mappings
       currently supported:
       Judy1 maps an Index (word) to a bit.
       JudyL maps an Index (word) to a word.
       JudySL maps an Index (string) to a word.

       For  Judy1 functions and JudyL functions, Index should be declared as a
       Word_t type.  Word_t is defined in the Judy.h header file as a  32-  or
       64-bit  unsigned	 native	 integer, and has the same number of bits as a

       For JudySL functions, each index is a null-terminated string.

       Judy arrays are both speed- and memory-efficient,  with	no  tuning  or
       configuration required, across a wide range of index set types (sequen‐
       tial, periodic, clustered, random).  Judy's speed and memory usage  are
       typically  better  than	other  data  storage models such as skiplists,
       binary trees, b-trees, or even hashing, and improves  with  very	 large
       data sets.

       A  Judy	array  is  created  merely by defining a null pointer and then
       storing (inserting)  the	 first	element	 into  the  array  under  that
       pointer.	  The memory used by a Judy array is proportional to the popu‐
       lation (number of elements).

       Judy has two Application Program Interfaces (APIs): a  C	 macro	inter‐
       face,  and  a  function	call  interface.   Because the macro forms are
       faster and have a simpler error handling interface than the  equivalent
       functions, they are the preferred way of calling the Judy functions.

       Since  an  initial (empty) Judy array is represented by a null pointer,
       it is possible to construct an array of Judy arrays.  In other words, a
       Judy  array's  values  (except  Judy1)  can  be	pointers to other Judy

       Judy was invented and implemented by Hewlett-Packard.  (Note:  Judy  is
       named for the inventor's sister.)
