ListMixin<E> class

Base implementation of a List class.

ListMixin can be used as a mixin to make a class implement the List interface.

This implements all read operations using only the length and operator[] members. It implements write operations using those and length= and operator[]=

NOTICE: Forwarding just these four operations to a normal growable List (as created by []) will give very bad performance for add and addAll operations of ListBase. These operations are implemented by increasing the length of the list by one for each add operation, and repeatedly increasing the length of a growable list is not efficient. To avoid this, either override 'add' and 'addAll' to also forward directly to the growable list, or, if possible, use DelegatingList from "package:collection/collection.dart" instead.
