63/2
 An object of type Set contains an expandable hash table, which is used to provide direct access to elements. The capacity of an object of type Set is the maximum number of elements that can be inserted into the hash table prior to it being automatically expanded.
64/2
 Two elements E1 and E2 are defined to be equivalent if Equivalent_Elements (E1, E2) returns True.
65/2
 The actual function for the generic formal function Hash is expected to return the same value each time it is called with a particular element value. For any two equivalent elements, the actual for Hash is expected to return the same value. If the actual for Hash behaves in some other manner, the behavior of this package is unspecified. Which subprograms of this package call Hash, and how many times they call it, is unspecified.
66/2
 The actual function for the generic formal function Equivalent_Elements is expected to return the same value each time it is called with a particular pair of Element values. It should define an equivalence relationship, that is, be reflexive, symmetric, and transitive. If the actual for Equivalent_Elements behaves in some other manner, the behavior of this package is unspecified. Which subprograms of this package call Equivalent_Elements, and how many times they call it, is unspecified.
67/2
 If the value of an element stored in a set is changed other than by an operation in this package such that at least one of Hash or Equivalent_Elements give different results, the behavior of this package is unspecified.
68/2
 Which elements are the first element and the last element of a set, and which element is the successor of a given element, are unspecified, other than the general semantics described in A.18.7.
69/2
function Capacity (Container : Set) return Count_Type;
70/2
Returns the capacity of Container.
71/2
procedure Reserve_Capacity (Container : in out Set;
                            Capacity  : in     Count_Type);
72/2
Reserve_Capacity allocates a new hash table such that the length of the resulting set can become at least the value Capacity without requiring an additional call to Reserve_Capacity, and is large enough to hold the current length of Container. Reserve_Capacity then rehashes the elements in Container onto the new hash table. It replaces the old hash table with the new hash table, and then deallocates the old hash table. Any exception raised during allocation is propagated and Container is not modified.
73/2
Reserve_Capacity tampers with the cursors of Container.
74/2
procedure Clear (Container : in out Set);
75/2
In addition to the semantics described in A.18.7, Clear does not affect the capacity of Container.
76/2
procedure Insert (Container : in out Set;
                  New_Item  : in     Element_Type;
                  Position  :    out Cursor;
                  Inserted  :    out Boolean);
77/2
In addition to the semantics described in A.18.7, if Length (Container) equals Capacity (Container), then Insert first calls Reserve_Capacity to increase the capacity of Container to some larger value.
78/2
function First (Container : Set) return Cursor;
79/2
If Length (Container) = 0, then First returns No_Element. Otherwise, First returns a cursor that designates the first hashed element in Container.
80/2
function Equivalent_Elements (Left, Right : Cursor)
      return Boolean;
81/2
Equivalent to Equivalent_Elements (Element (Left), Element (Right)).
82/2
function Equivalent_Elements (Left  : Cursor;
                              Right : Element_Type) return Boolean;
83/2
Equivalent to Equivalent_Elements (Element (Left), Right).
84/2
function Equivalent_Elements (Left  : Element_Type;
                              Right : Cursor) return Boolean;
85/2
Equivalent to Equivalent_Elements (Left, Element (Right)).
86/2
 For any element E, the actual function for the generic formal function Generic_Keys.Hash is expected to be such that Hash (E) = Generic_Keys.Hash (Key (E)). If the actuals for Key or Generic_Keys.Hash behave in some other manner, the behavior of Generic_Keys is unspecified. Which subprograms of Generic_Keys call Generic_Keys.Hash, and how many times they call it, is unspecified.
87/2
 For any two elements E1 and E2, the boolean values Equivalent_Elements (E1, E2) and Equivalent_Keys (Key (E1), Key (E2)) are expected to be equal. If the actuals for Key or Equivalent_Keys behave in some other manner, the behavior of Generic_Keys is unspecified. Which subprograms of Generic_Keys call Equivalent_Keys, and how many times they call it, is unspecified.

Implementation Advice

88/2
 If N is the length of a set, the average time complexity of the subprograms Insert, Include, Replace, Delete, Exclude and Find that take an element parameter should be O(log N). The average time complexity of the subprograms that take a cursor parameter should be O(1). The average time complexity of Reserve_Capacity should be O(N).
