Set.IsProperSubsetOf<'T> Method (F#)

Evaluates to true if all elements of the first set are in the second, and at least one element of the second is not in the first.

Namespace/Module Path: Microsoft.FSharp.Collections

Assembly: FSharp.Core (in FSharp.Core.dll)

// Signature:
member this.IsProperSubsetOf : Set<'T> -> bool (requires comparison)

// Usage:
set.IsProperSubsetOf (otherSet)

otherSet

Type: Set<'T>

The set to test against.

true if this set is a proper subset of otherSet. Otherwise, returns false.

The following code illustrates the use of the IsProperSubsetOf method.


let set1 = Set.ofList [ 1 .. 6 ]
let set2 = Set.ofList [ 1 .. 5 ]
let set3 = Set.ofList [ 1 .. 6 ]
let set4 = Set.ofList [ 5 .. 10 ]
printfn "%A is a proper subset of %A: %b" set2 set1 (set2.IsProperSubsetOf set1)
printfn "%A is a proper subset of %A: %b" set3 set1 (set3.IsProperSubsetOf set1) 
printfn "%A is a proper subset of %A: %b" set4 set1 (set4.IsProperSubsetOf set1) 


Output

set [1; 2; 3; 4; 5] is a proper subset of set [1; 2; 3; 4; 5; 6]: true
set [1; 2; 3; 4; 5; 6] is a proper subset of set [1; 2; 3; 4; 5; 6]: false
set [5; 6; 7; 8; 9; 10] is a proper subset of set [1; 2; 3; 4; 5; 6]: false
