Growing List vs Growing Queue

### GROWING LIST ###
base_lst1 <- function(df) {
  l <- list()
  for (i in seq(nrow(df))) l[[i]] <- as.list(df[i, ])
  return(l)
}

### PRE-ALLOCATING LIST ###
base_lst2 <- function(df) {
  l <- vector(mode = "list", length = nrow(df))
  for (i in seq(nrow(df))) l[[i]] <- as.list(df[i, ])
  return(l)
}

### DEQUER PACKAGE ###
dequer_queue <- function(df) {
  q <- dequer::queue()
  for (i in seq(nrow(df))) dequer::pushback(q, as.list(df[i, ]))
  return(as.list(q))
}

### LIQUEUER PACKAGE ###
liqueuer_queue <- function(df) {
  q <- liqueueR::Queue$new()
  for (i in seq(nrow(df))) q$push(as.list(df[i, ]))
  return(q$data)
}

### COLLECTIONS PACKAGE ###
collections_queue <- function(df) {
  q <- collections::Queue$new()
  for (i in seq(nrow(df))) q$push(as.list(df[i, ]))
  return(q$as_list())
}

### RSTACKDEQUE PACKAGE ###
rstackdeque_queue <- function(df) {
  q <- rstackdeque::rpqueue()
  for (i in seq(nrow(df))) q <- rstackdeque::insert_back(q, as.list(df[i, ]))
  return(as.list(q))
}
