- 41. When not to use purely functional Consider Array if performance is critical Functional dictionary–like structures (Map) may not perform well-enough, especially after scale 104 Consider .NET dictionary–like object acster.com jackfoxy.com @foxyjackfox 2/5/2013 41
- 42. Publishing your functional DSFSharpx.Collections.readme.md Include Try value returning option for values that can throw Exception Include other common values if < O(n) Reason about edge cases (more unit tests better than not enough) acster.com jackfoxy.com @foxyjackfox 2/5/2013 42

- 44. Closing ThoughtThe functional data structures further from the “mainstream” (if such a measure were possible) tend to have less inherit value in their generic form.Therefore the ultimate functional data structures collection would combine the characteristics of a library, a snippet collection, a benchmarking tool, superb documentation, test cases, and EXAMPLES! acster.com jackfoxy.com @foxyjackfox 2/5/2013 44
