/*
 * The BinarySearch() algorithm searches the given container |aContainer| over
 * the sorted index range [aBegin, aEnd) for an index |i| where
 * |aContainer[i] == aTarget|.
 * If such an index |i| is found, BinarySearch returns |true| and the index is
 * returned via the outparam |aMatchOrInsertionPoint|. If no index is found,
 * BinarySearch returns |false| and the outparam returns the first index in
 * [aBegin, aEnd] where |aTarget| can be inserted to maintain sorted order.
 *
 * Example:
 *
 *   Vector<int> sortedInts = ...
 *
 *   size_t match;
 *   if (BinarySearch(sortedInts, 0, sortedInts.length(), 13, &match)) {
 *     printf("found 13 at %lu\n", match);
 *   }
 *
 * The BinarySearchIf() version behaves similarly, but takes |aComparator|, a
 * functor to compare the values with, instead of a value to find.
 * That functor should take one argument - the value to compare - and return an
 * |int| with the comparison result:
 *
 *   * 0, if the argument is equal to,
 *   * less than 0, if the argument is greater than,
 *   * greater than 0, if the argument is less than
 *
 * the value.
 *
 * Example:
 *
 *   struct Comparator {
 *     int operator()(int aVal) const {
 *       if (mTarget < aVal) { return -1; }
 *       if (mTarget > aVal) { return 1; }
 *       return 0;
 *     }
 *     explicit Comparator(int aTarget) : mTarget(aTarget) {}
 *     const int mTarget;
 *   };
 *
 *   Vector<int> sortedInts = ...
 *
 *   size_t match;
 *   if (BinarySearchIf(sortedInts, 0, sortedInts.length(), Comparator(13), &match)) {
 *     printf("found 13 at %lu\n", match);
 *   }
 *
