NAME

Hash::LRU - trait for limiting number of keys in hashes by usage

SYNOPSIS

use Hash::LRU;  # Least Recently Used

my %h is LRU;   # defaults to elements => 100

my %h is LRU(elements => 42);  # note: value must be known at compile time!

my %h{Any} is LRU;  # object hashes also supported

DESCRIPTION

Hash::LRU provides a is LRU trait on Hashes as an easy way to limit the number of keys kept in the Hash. Keys will be added as long as the number of keys is under the limit. As soon as a new key is added that would exceed the limit, the least recently used key is removed from the Hash.

Both "normal" as well as object hashes are supported.

EXAMPLE

use Hash::LRU;

my %h is LRU(elements => 3);

%h<name>       = "Alex";
%h<language>   = "Raku";
%h<occupation> = "devops";
%h<location>   = "Russia";

say %h.raku;
# {:location("Russia"), :occupation("devops"), :language("Raku")}
