AVL tree component




TAVLTree maintains a balanced AVL tree. The tree consists of TAVLTreeNode nodes, each of which has a Data pointer associated with it. The TAVLTree component offers methods to balance and search the tree.

By default, the list is searched with a simple pointer comparison algorithm, but a custom search mechanism can be specified in the OnCompare property.
