Collection - (Tuple|Vector|Row)


A tuple is:

  • a finite list of elements (fields) - It can only contain a specific number of elements.
  • ordered by position
  • that may have different types.
  • and still be completely typesafe.

You can see tuple:

Example with a tuple assignement.

(x,y,z) = (2,4,'Bar')

would result in the following tuple:

<math> \begin{array}{rrr} 0 & \mapsto & x & \mapsto & 2\\ 1 & \mapsto & y & \mapsto & 4\\ 2 & \mapsto & z & \mapsto & Bar\\ \end{array} </math>

A Tuple has a schema defining each field

The term tuple comes from the set theory.

In set theory, an (ordered) n-tuple is a sequence (or ordered list) of n elements, where n is a non-negative integer.

Tuples are often used to describe other mathematical objects, such as vector

In a relational database, a tuple is called a row.
