high speed low memory footprint priority queue data structure lib

In networking, computer graphics, and many other applications it is necessary to have a high-throughput priority queue. libcoveb provides this by using a powerful data structure called stratified trees. By using special indexing techniques, they are able to provide access to more data in less time than more common balanced binary trees. This priority queue supports range and greater-than type queries as well as basic set containment. It is an ideal choice for keeping a sorted list of integers available from a large unsorted dynamic list of data. There is also a customizable mapping priority queue that can carry any kind of user data.


More information about apt-get remove

Advanced Package Tool, or APT, is a free software user interface that works with core libraries to handle the installation and removal of software on Debian, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. APT simplifies the process of managing software on Unix-like computer systems by automating the retrieval, configuration and installation of software packages, either from precompiled files or by compiling source code.

apt-get is the command-line tool for handling packages, and may be considered the user's "back-end" to other tools using the APT library.

apt-get remove is identical to install except that packages are removed instead of installed. Note that removing a package leaves its configuration files on the system. If a plus sign is appended to the package name (with no intervening space), the identified package will be installed instead of removed.
