I am trying to do some interpolation, at Reuters.
A clean implementation is to use the
map.get( key )
to return an interpolated value, if the real value does not exist.
However in doing this I would like to access
n-keys either side of the key I am requesting.
The current SortMap interface only allows me to get at the value either side of the key value (using headMap.lastKey() &
This is inadequate for some kinds of interpolation where I need several keys either side of the key in question.
As a general solution to this problem it seems reasonable that Sorted classes should return a ListIterator as well as an iterator.
