Adjoin

Function: adjoin (<x>, <a>) Returns the union of the set <a> with {<x>}.

adjoin (c, {a, b});
 adjoin (a, {a, b});

adjoin complains if <a> is not a literal set.

adjoin(<x>, <a>) and union(set(<x>), <a>) are equivalent; however, adjoin may be somewhat faster than union.

See also disjoin.

Examples:

          (%i1) adjoin (c, {a, b});
          (%o1)                       {a, b, c}
          (%i2) adjoin (a, {a, b});
          (%o2)                        {a, b}

There are also some inexact matches for adjoin. Try ?? adjoin to see them.

(%o1)                                true
(%i2)
