Comparison of objects used for data storage
The following object types can be used for holding values (of any data type). Each of these objects has certain advantages and disadvantages and the choice depends on the desired usage.
: This object contains values that are accessible by index in the array - it is possible to read any value at any time. Reading and setting values is very fast, but adding is slow.
: This object contains a list of values. The values can be accessed only from the beginning or from the end of the list. Reading, adding amd removing values from beginning or end of the list is fast, but values "inside" the list cannot be accessed.
The object is designed for processing data as in "container" (stack, LIFO) or "queue" (pipe, FIFO).
: This object contains values that are addressed by name (text identifier). Value names represent object properties. The advanatege is the "clarity" of usage in the script code. The disadvantage is the inability to access the values in cycle by index.
