Detailed Description

template<typename T>
class UT_CycleDetect< T >

A generic cycle detector that takes constant space and will detect cycles using at most O(N) extra calls to detect() for a cycle of length N (if it exists) using O(1) space.

NOTE: In general, this won't detect cycles immediately and so your loop must be able to support extra iterations.

You might have as many as 3 times the number of iterations as your total path length.


T walk; UT_CycleDetect<T> cycle; for (walk = first; walk && !cycle.detect(walk); walk = walk->next) { .... do stuff with walk .... }
