Re: which datastructure for fast sorted insert?

Use a list, and the bisect module to keep it sorted:
That's worth doing if you need the data to be sorted after each insert.
If the OP just needs the data to be sorted at the end, using a data
structure with fast inserts (like a set) and then sorting at the end will
likely be faster.

Hi, for my current application, I need a linked list in which I can access and walk through at highest speed possible - adding/deleting/inserting elements can be as slow as necessary. Now, which template out of the C/C++ standard library should I use for this - std::list? Or is there a better implementation out there? thanks Peter
