B+ Trees for the masses
Roger has done, in the generic, what nobody I’ve found to date has: He’s implemented an open sourced, B+ Tree library for .NET that scales well and is completely thread safe. I’ve tried making one myself, and while I did manage to implement a b+ tree, it wasn’t threadsafe and linear scaling into the hundreds of millions of items… this one is.
I’ve chatted with another Mr. Mehdi Gholam who has his own working but not-so-generic version of a B+ Tree in RaptorDb, and seen countless people asking for one all over the place in message boards and forums. Well there it is. I know it’s not much hearing me say it, but free software isn’t free for the guy who writes it, so… thanks, Roger. Great work!
