      Description

      For a client, I've written "set" functions in BeginC++, for ECL's sets.
      These include, e.g.
      intersection
      union (w/ or w/out dedup)
      sort
      dedup
      difference (exclusion)

      Maybe such functionality is already available, but these prove to be very handy when working with small (up to 100's?) sets.
      I understand they could be abused, especially to try to replace the higher-level transformations in ECL.
      Just an idea.
