Masterizing PHP Data Structure 102 - PHPUK 2012

Published on

We all have certainly learned data structures at school: arrays, lists, sets, stacks, queues (LIFO/FIFO), heaps, associative arrays, trees, ... and what do we mostly use in PHP? The "array"! In most cases, we do everything and anything with it but we stumble upon it when profiling code.

During this session, we'll learn again to use the structures appropriately, leaning closer on the way to employ arrays, the SPL and other structures from PHP extensions as well.

  8. 8. Game:Can you recognize some structures?
  9. 9. Array: PHPs untruthfulnessPHP “Arrays” are not true Arrays!
  10. 10. Array: PHPs untruthfulnessPHP “Arrays” are not true Arrays!An array typically looks like this: 0 1 2 3 4 5 Data Data Data Data Data Data
  11. 11. Array: PHPs untruthfulnessPHP “Arrays” can dynamically grow and be iteratedboth directions (reset(), next(), prev(), end()),exclusively with O(1) operations.
  12. 12. Array: PHPs untruthfulnessPHP “Arrays” can dynamically grow and be iteratedboth directions (reset(), next(), prev(), end()),exclusively with O(1) operations.Lets have a Doubly Linked List (DLL): Head Tail Data Data Data Data DataEnables List, Deque, Queue and Stackimplementations
  13. 13. Array: PHPs untruthfulnessPHP “Arrays” elements are always accessible using akey (index).
  14. 14. Array: PHPs untruthfulnessPHP “Arrays” elements are always accessible using akey (index).Lets have an Hash Table: Head Bucket pointers array Tail 0 1 2 3 4 5 ... nTableSize -1 Bucket * Bucket * Bucket * Bucket * Bucket * Bucket * Bucket * Bucket Bucket Bucket Bucket Bucket Data Data Data Data Data
  15. 15. Array: PHPs untruthfulnesshttp://php.net/manual/en/language.types.array.php: “This type is optimized for several different uses; it can be treated as an array, list (vector), hash table (an implementation of a map), dictionary, collection, stack, queue, and probably more.”
  16. 16. Optimized for anything ≈ Optimized for nothing!
  17. 17. Array: PHPs untruthfulness● In C: 100 000 integers (using long on 64bits => 8 bytes) can be stored in 0.76 Mb.● In PHP: it will take ≅ 13.97 Mb!● A PHP variable (containing an integer) takes 48 bytes.● The overhead of buckets for every “array” entries is about 96 bytes.● More details: http://nikic.github.com/2011/12/12/How-big-are-PHP-arrays-really-Hint-BIG.html
  18. 18. Data Structure
  19. 19. Structs (or records, tuples,...)
  20. 20. Structs (or records, tuples,...)● A struct is a value containing other values which are typically accessed using a name.● Example: Person => firstName / lastName ComplexNumber => realPart / imaginaryPart
  21. 21. Structs – Using array$person = array( "firstName" => "Patrick", "lastName" => "Allaert");
  22. 22. Structs – Using a class$person = new PersonStruct( "Patrick", "Allaert");
  23. 23. Structs – Using a class (Implementation)class PersonStruct{ public $firstName; public $lastName; public function __construct($firstName, $lastName) { $this->firstName = $firstName; $this->lastName = $lastName; }}
  24. 24. Structs – Using a class (Implementation)class PersonStruct{ public $firstName; public $lastName; public function __construct($firstName, $lastName) { $this->firstName = $firstName; $this->lastName = $lastName; } public function __set($key, $value) { // a. Do nothing // b. trigger_error() // c. Throws an exception }}
  25. 25. Structs – Pros and Cons Array Class+ Uses less memory (PHP < 5.4) - Uses more memory (PHP < 5.4)- Uses more memory (PHP = 5.4) + Uses less memory (PHP = 5.4)- No type hinting + Type hinting possible- Flexible structure + Rigid structure+|- Less OO +|- More OO+ Slightly faster - Slightly slower
  26. 26. (true) Arrays
  27. 27. (true) Arrays● An array is a fixed size collection where elements are each identified by a numeric index.
  28. 28. (true) Arrays● An array is a fixed size collection where elements are each identified by a numeric index. 0 1 2 3 4 5 Data Data Data Data Data Data
  29. 29. (true) Arrays – Using SplFixedArray$array = new SplFixedArray(3);$array[0] = 1; // or $array->offsetSet()$array[1] = 2; // or $array->offsetSet()$array[2] = 3; // or $array->offsetSet()$array[0]; // gives 1$array[1]; // gives 2$array[2]; // gives 3
  30. 30. (true) Arrays – Pros and Cons Array SplFixedArray- Uses more memory + Uses less memory+|- Less OO +|- More OO
  31. 31. Queues
  32. 32. Queues● A queue is an ordered collection respecting First In, First Out (FIFO) order.● Elements are inserted at one end and removed at the other.
  33. 33. Queues● A queue is an ordered collection respecting First In, First Out (FIFO) order.● Elements are inserted at one end and removed at the other. Data Dequeue Data Data Data Data Data Data Enqueue Data
  34. 34. Queues – Using array$queue = array();$queue[] = 1; // or array_push()$queue[] = 2; // or array_push()$queue[] = 3; // or array_push()array_shift($queue); // gives 1array_shift($queue); // gives 2array_shift($queue); // gives 3
  35. 35. Queues – Using SplQueue$queue = new SplQueue();$queue[] = 1; // or $queue->enqueue()$queue[] = 2; // or $queue->enqueue()$queue[] = 3; // or $queue->enqueue()$queue->dequeue(); // gives 1$queue->dequeue(); // gives 2$queue->dequeue(); // gives 3
  36. 36. Stacks
  37. 37. Stacks● A stack is an ordered collection respecting Last In, First Out (LIFO) order.● Elements are inserted and removed on the same end.
  38. 38. Stacks● A stack is an ordered collection respecting Last In, First Out (LIFO) order.● Elements are inserted and removed on the same end. Data Push Data Data Data Data Data Data Pop Data
  39. 39. Stacks – Using array$stack = array();$stack[] = 1; // or array_push()$stack[] = 2; // or array_push()$stack[] = 3; // or array_push()array_pop($stack); // gives 3array_pop($stack); // gives 2array_pop($stack); // gives 1
  40. 40. Stacks – Using SplStack$stack = new SplStack();$stack[] = 1; // or $stack->push()$stack[] = 2; // or $stack->push()$stack[] = 3; // or $stack->push()$stack->pop(); // gives 3$stack->pop(); // gives 2$stack->pop(); // gives 1
  41. 41. Queues/Stacks – Pros and Cons Array SplQueue / SplStack- Uses more memory + Uses less memory(overhead / entry: 96 bytes) (overhead / entry: 48 bytes)- No type hinting + Type hinting possible+|- Less OO +|- More OO
  42. 42. SetsGeeks Nerds People with strong views on the distinction between geeks and nerds
  43. 43. Sets● A set is a collection with no particular ordering especially suited for testing the membership of a value against a collection or to perform union/intersection/complement operations between them.

  50. 50. Sets – Using array (simple types)$set = array();// Adding elements to a set$set[1] = true; // Any dummy value$set[2] = true; // is good but NULL!$set[3] = true;// Checking presence in a setisset($set[2]); // trueisset($set[5]); // false$set1 + $set2; // unionarray_intersect_key($set1, $set2); // intersectionarray_diff_key($set1, $set2); // complement

Sets – Using array (simple types)$set = array();// Adding elements to a set$set[1] = true; // Any dummy value$set[2] = true; // is good but NULL!$set[3] = true;// Checking presence in a setisset($set[2]); // trueisset($set[5]); // false$set1 + $set2; // unionarray_intersect_key($set1, $set2); // intersectionarray_diff_key($set1, $set2); // complement● Remember that PHP Array keys can be integers or strings only!
  52. 52. Sets – Using array (objects)$set = array();// Adding elements to a set$set[spl_object_hash($object1)] = $object1;$set[spl_object_hash($object2)] = $object2;$set[spl_object_hash($object3)] = $object3;// Checking presence in a setisset($set[spl_object_hash($object2)]); // trueisset($set[spl_object_hash($object5)]); // false$set1 + $set2; // unionarray_intersect_key($set1, $set2); // intersectionarray_diff_key($set1, $set2); // complement
  53. 53. Sets – Using array (objects)$set = array();// Adding elements to a set$set[spl_object_hash($object1)] = $object1; Store a$set[spl_object_hash($object2)] = $object2; reference of$set[spl_object_hash($object3)] = $object3; the object!// Checking presence in a setisset($set[spl_object_hash($object2)]); // trueisset($set[spl_object_hash($object5)]); // false$set1 + $set2; // unionarray_intersect_key($set1, $set2); // intersectionarray_diff_key($set1, $set2); // complement

  56. 56. Sets – Using bitsetsdefine("E_ERROR", 1); // or 1<<0define("E_WARNING", 2); // or 1<<1define("E_PARSE", 4); // or 1<<2define("E_NOTICE", 8); // or 1<<3// Adding elements to a set$set = 0;$set |= E_ERROR;$set |= E_WARNING;$set |= E_PARSE;// Checking presence in a set$set & E_ERROR; // true$set & E_NOTICE; // false$set1 | $set2; // union$set1 & $set2; // intersection$set1 ^ $set2; // complement
  57. 57. Sets – Using bitsets (example)Instead of:function remove($path, $files = true, $directories = true, $links = true,$executable = true){ if (!$files && is_file($path)) return false; if (!$directories && is_dir($path)) return false; if (!$links && is_link($path)) return false; if (!$executable && is_executable($path)) return false; // ...}remove("/tmp/removeMe", true, false, true, false); // WTF ?!
  58. 58. Sets – Using bitsets (example)Instead of:define("REMOVE_FILES", 1 << 0);define("REMOVE_DIRS", 1 << 1);define("REMOVE_LINKS", 1 << 2);define("REMOVE_EXEC", 1 << 3);define("REMOVE_ALL", ~0); // Setting all bitsfunction remove($path, $options = REMOVE_ALL){ if (~$options & REMOVE_FILES && is_file($path)) return false; if (~$options & REMOVE_DIRS && is_dir($path)) return false; if (~$options & REMOVE_LINKS && is_link($path)) return false; if (~$options & REMOVE_EXEC && is_executable($path)) return false; // ...}remove("/tmp/removeMe", REMOVE_FILES | REMOVE_LINKS); // Much better :)
  59. 59. Sets: Conclusions● Use the key and not the value when using PHP Arrays.● Use QuickHash for set of integers if possible.● Use SplObjectStorage as soon as you are playing with objects.● Dont use array_unique() when you need a set!
  60. 60. Maps● A map is a collection of key/value pairs where all keys are unique.
  61. 61. Maps – Using array$map = array();$map["ONE"] = 1;$map["TWO"] = 2;$map["THREE"] = 3;// Merging maps:array_merge($map1, $map2); // SLOW!$map2 + $map1; // Fast :)● Dont use array_merge() on maps.

Multikey Maps – Using array$map = array();$map["ONE"] = 1;$map["UN"] =& $map["ONE"];$map["UNO"] =& $map["ONE"];$map["TWO"] = 2;$map["DEUX"] =& $map["TWO"];$map["DUE"] =& $map["TWO"];$map["UNO"] = "once";$map["DEUX"] = "twice";var_dump($map);/*array(6) {["ONE"] => &string(4) "once"● Dont use array_merge() on maps.["UN"] => &string(4) "once"["UNO"] => &string(4) "once"["TWO"] => &string(5) "twice"["DEUX"] => &string(5) "twice"["DUE"] => &string(5) "twice"}*/
  63. 63. Heap● A heap is a tree-based structure in which all elements are ordered with largest key at the top, and the smallest one as leafs.
  64. 64. Heap● A heap is a tree-based structure in which all elements are ordered with largest key at the top, and the smallest one as leafs.
  65. 65. Heap – Using array$heap = array();$heap[] = 3;sort($heap);$heap[] = 1;sort($heap);$heap[] = 2;sort($heap);
  66. 66. Heap – Using Spl(Min|Max)Heap$heap = new SplMinHeap;$heap->insert(3);$heap->insert(1);$heap->insert(2);
  67. 67. Heaps: Conclusions● MUCH faster than having to re-sort() an array at every insertion.● If you dont require a collection to be sorted at every single step and can insert all data at once and then sort(). Array is a much better/faster approach.● SplPriorityQueue is very similar, consider it is the same as SplHeap but where the sorting is made on the key rather than the value.
  68. 68. Bloom filters● A bloom filter is a space-efficient probabilistic data structure used to test whether an element is member of a set.● False positives are possible, but false negatives are not!
  69. 69. Bloom filters – Using bloomy// BloomFilter::__construct(int capacity [, doubleerror_rate [, int random_seed ] ])$bloomFilter = new BloomFilter(10000, 0.001);$bloomFilter->add("An element");$bloomFilter->has("An element"); // true for sure$bloomFilter->has("Foo"); // false, most probably

  73. 73. Conclusions● Use appropriate data structure. It will keep your code clean and fast.
  74. 74. Conclusions● Use appropriate data structure. It will keep your code clean and fast.● Think about the time and space complexity involved by your algorithms.
  75. 75. Conclusions● Use appropriate data structure. It will keep your code clean and fast.● Think about the time and space complexity involved by your algorithms.● Name your variables accordingly: use “Map”, “Set”, “List”, “Queue”,... to describe them instead of using something like: $ordersArray.
