# `bisect`¶

Source code: bisect.seq

bisect.bisect_left(a, x, lo: int = 0, hi: int = - 1)

Return the index where to insert item x in list a, assuming a is sorted.

The return value i is such that all e in a[:i] have e < x, and all e in a[i:] have e >= x. So if x already appears in the list, a.insert(x) will insert just before the leftmost x already there.

Optional args lo (default 0) and hi (default len(a)) bound the slice of a to be searched.

Default values: lo=0, high=None For now seq will use len(a) instead of None

bisect.bisect_right(a, x, lo: int = 0, hi: int = - 1)

Return the index where to insert item x in list a, assuming a is sorted.

The return value i is such that all e in a[:i] have e <= x, and all e in a[i:] have e > x. So if x already appears in the list, a.insert(x) will insert just after the rightmost x already there.

Optional args lo (default 0) and hi (default len(a)) bound the slice of a to be searched.

Default values: lo=0, high=None For now seq will use len(a) instead of None

bisect.bisect(a, x, lo: int = 0, hi: int = - 1)

bisect = bisect_right

bisect.insort_left(a, x, lo: int = 0, hi: int = - 1)

Insert item x in list a, and keep it sorted assuming a is sorted.

If x is already in a, insert it to the left of the leftmost x.

Default values: lo=0, high=None For now seq will use len(a) instead of None

bisect.insort_right(a, x, lo: int = 0, hi: int = - 1)

Insert item x in list a, and keep it sorted assuming a is sorted.

If x is already in a, insert it to the right of the rightmost x.

Default values: lo=0, high=None For now seq will use len(a) instead of None

bisect.insort(a, x, lo: int = 0, hi: int = - 1)

insort = insort_right
