'push' is not an exported function, so don't even try to
use it. It's just a help function that works on lists.
Rule number one: if it's not exported and not documented,
then it doesn't exist.
On the other hand, there _is_ a heap of unit testing code
inside the module, with plenty of usage examples.

What do you mean by "identify"?

That sounds awfully strange. Do you mean that the 'new'
function loops forever? Can you show an example?

Use the 'set' function. I will probably add some
extra functions such as 'append' later.

Did you not see the html documentation
