# std.algorithm.iteration

This is a submodule of std.algorithm.
It contains generic iteration algorithms.

Function Name | Description |
---|---|

cache | Eagerly evaluates and caches another range's front. |

cacheBidirectional | As above, but also provides back and popBack. |

chunkBy | chunkBy!((a,b) => a[1] == b[1])([[1, 1], [1, 2], [2, 2], [2, 1]]) returns a range containing 3 subranges: the first with just [1, 1]; the second with the elements [1, 2] and [2, 2]; and the third with just [2, 1]. |

cumulativeFold | cumulativeFold!((a, b) => a + b)([1, 2, 3, 4]) returns a lazily-evaluated range containing the successive reduced values 1, 3, 6, 10. |

each | each!writeln([1, 2, 3]) eagerly prints the numbers 1, 2 and 3 on their own lines. |

filter | filter!(a => a > 0)([1, -1, 2, 0, -3]) iterates over elements 1 and 2. |

filterBidirectional | Similar to filter, but also provides back and popBack at a small increase in cost. |

fold | fold!((a, b) => a + b)([1, 2, 3, 4]) returns 10. |

group | group([5, 2, 2, 3, 3]) returns a range containing the tuples tuple(5, 1), tuple(2, 2), and tuple(3, 2). |

joiner | joiner(["hello", "world!"], "; ") returns a range that iterates over the characters "hello; world!". No new string is created - the existing inputs are iterated. |

map | map!(a => a * 2)([1, 2, 3]) lazily returns a range with the numbers 2, 4, 6. |

permutations | Lazily computes all permutations using Heap's algorithm. |

reduce | reduce!((a, b) => a + b)([1, 2, 3, 4]) returns 10. This is the old implementation of fold. |

splitter | Lazily splits a range by a separator. |

sum | Same as fold, but specialized for accurate summation. |

uniq | Iterates over the unique elements in a range, which is assumed sorted. |

`cache`

(Range)(Range`range`

)

if (isInputRange!Range);

auto`cacheBidirectional`

(Range)(Range`range`

)

if (isBidirectionalRange!Range); `cache`

eagerly evaluates front of`range`

on each construction or call to popFront, to store the result in a`cache`

. The result is then directly returned when front is called, rather than re-evaluated.This can be a useful function to place in a chain, after functions that have expensive evaluation, as a lazy alternative to std.array.array. In particular, it can be placed after a call to map, or before a call to filter.`cache`

may provide range_primitives.html#.isBidirectionalRange">bidirectional`range`

iteration if needed, but since this comes at an increased cost, it must be explicitly requested via the call to`cacheBidirectional`

. Furthermore, a bidirectional`cache`

will evaluate the "center" element twice, when there is only one element left in the`range`

.`cache`

does not provide random access primitives, as`cache`

would be unable to`cache`

the random accesses. If Range provides slicing primitives, then`cache`

will provide the same slicing primitives, but hasSlicing!Cache will not yield`true`

(as the std.range.primitives.hasSlicing trait also checks for random access).Parameters:Range `range`

an range_primitives.html#.isInputRange">input `range`

Returns:an input`range`

with the cached values of`range`

Examples:import std.algorithm.comparison : equal; import std.stdio, std.range; import std.typecons : tuple; ulong counter = 0; double fun(int x) { ++counter; // http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quartic_function return ( (x + 4.0) * (x + 1.0) * (x - 1.0) * (x - 3.0) ) / 14.0 + 0.5; } // Without cache, with array (greedy) auto result1 = iota(-4, 5).map!(a =>tuple(a, fun(a)))() .filter!(a => a[1] < 0)() .map!(a => a[0])() .array(); // the values of x that have a negative y are: assert(equal(result1, [-3, -2, 2])); // Check how many times fun was evaluated. // As many times as the number of items in both source and result. writeln(counter); // iota(-4, 5).length + result1.length counter = 0; // Without array, with cache (lazy) auto result2 = iota(-4, 5).map!(a =>tuple(a, fun(a)))() .cache() .filter!(a => a[1] < 0)() .map!(a => a[0])(); // the values of x that have a negative y are: assert(equal(result2, [-3, -2, 2])); // Check how many times fun was evaluated. // Only as many times as the number of items in source. writeln(counter); // iota(-4, 5).length

Examples:Tip:`cache`

is eager when evaluating elements. If calling front on the underlying range has a side effect, it will be observable before calling front on the actual cached range. Furthermore, care should be taken composing`cache`

with std.range.take. By placing take before`cache`

, then`cache`

will be "aware" of when the range ends, and correctly stop caching elements when needed. If calling front has no side effect though, placing take after`cache`

may yield a faster range. Either way, the resulting ranges will be equivalent, but maybe not at the same cost or side effects.import std.algorithm.comparison : equal; import std.range; int i = 0; auto r = iota(0, 4).tee!((a){i = a;}, No.pipeOnPop); auto r1 = r.take(3).cache(); auto r2 = r.cache().take(3); assert(equal(r1, [0, 1, 2])); assert(i == 2); //The last "seen" element was 2. The data in cache has been cleared. assert(equal(r2, [0, 1, 2])); assert(i == 3); //cache has accessed 3. It is still stored internally by cache.

- template
`map`

(fun...) if (fun.length >= 1) - auto
`map`

(Range)(Range r) if (isInputRange!(Unqual!Range));Implements the homonym function (also known as transform) present in many languages of functional flavor. The call`map`

!(fun)(range) returns a range of which elements are obtained by applying fun(a) left to right for all elements a in range. The original ranges are not changed. Evaluation is done lazily.Parameters:fun one or more transformation functions Range r an input range Returns:a range with each fun applied to all the elements. If there is more than one fun, the element type will be Tuple containing one element for each fun.See Also:Examples:import std.algorithm.comparison : equal; import std.range : chain; int[] arr1 = [ 1, 2, 3, 4 ]; int[] arr2 = [ 5, 6 ]; auto squares = map!(a => a * a)(chain(arr1, arr2)); assert(equal(squares, [ 1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36 ]));

Examples:Multiple functions can be passed to`map`

. In that case, the element type of`map`

is a tuple containing one element for each function.auto sums = [2, 4, 6, 8]; auto products = [1, 4, 9, 16]; size_t i = 0; foreach (result; [ 1, 2, 3, 4 ].map!("a + a", "a * a")) { writeln(result[0]); // sums[i] writeln(result[1]); // products[i] ++i; }

Examples:You may alias`map`

with some function(s) to a symbol and use it separately:import std.algorithm.comparison : equal; import std.conv : to; alias stringize = map!(to!string); assert(equal(stringize([ 1, 2, 3, 4 ]), [ "1", "2", "3", "4" ]));

- template
`each`

(alias pred = "a") - Eagerly iterates over r and calls pred over each element.If no predicate is specified,
`each`

will default to doing nothing but consuming the entire range. .front will be evaluated, but this can be avoided by explicitly specifying a predicate lambda with a lazy parameter.`each`

also supports opApply-based iterators, so it will work with e.g. std.parallelism.parallel.Parameters:pred predicate to apply to `each`

element of the rangeRange r range or iterable over which `each`

iteratesSee Also:Examples:import std.range : iota; long[] arr; iota(5).each!(n => arr ~= n); writeln(arr); // [0, 1, 2, 3, 4] // If the range supports it, the value can be mutated in place arr.each!((ref n) => n++); writeln(arr); // [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] arr.each!"a++"; writeln(arr); // [2, 3, 4, 5, 6] // by-ref lambdas are not allowed for non-ref ranges static assert(!is(typeof(arr.map!(n => n).each!((ref n) => n++)))); // The default predicate consumes the range auto m = arr.map!(n => n); (&m).each(); assert(m.empty); // Indexes are also available for in-place mutations arr[] = 0; arr.each!"a=i"(); writeln(arr); // [0, 1, 2, 3, 4] // opApply iterators work as well static class S { int x; int opApply(scope int delegate(ref int _x) dg) { return dg(x); } } auto s = new S; s.each!"a++"; writeln(s.x); // 1

- template
`filter`

(alias predicate) if (is(typeof(unaryFun!predicate))) - auto
`filter`

(Range)(Range rs) if (isInputRange!(Unqual!Range));Implements the higher order filter function. The predicate is passed to std.functional.unaryFun, and can either accept a string, or any callable that can be executed via pred(element).Parameters:predicate Function to apply to each element of range Range range Input range of elements Returns:`filter`

!(predicate)(range) returns a new range containing only elements x in range for which predicate(x) returns`true`

.See Also:Examples:import std.algorithm.comparison : equal; import std.math : approxEqual; import std.range; int[] arr = [ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ]; // Sum all elements auto small = filter!(a => a < 3)(arr); assert(equal(small, [ 1, 2 ])); // Sum again, but with Uniform Function Call Syntax (UFCS) auto sum = arr.filter!(a => a < 3); assert(equal(sum, [ 1, 2 ])); // In combination with chain() to span multiple ranges int[] a = [ 3, -2, 400 ]; int[] b = [ 100, -101, 102 ]; auto r = chain(a, b).filter!(a => a > 0); assert(equal(r, [ 3, 400, 100, 102 ])); // Mixing convertible types is fair game, too double[] c = [ 2.5, 3.0 ]; auto r1 = chain(c, a, b).filter!(a => cast(int) a != a); assert(approxEqual(r1, [ 2.5 ]));

- template
`filterBidirectional`

(alias pred) - auto
`filterBidirectional`

(Range)(Range r) if (isBidirectionalRange!(Unqual!Range));Similar to filter, except it defines a bidirectional range. There is a speed disadvantage - the constructor spends time finding the last element in the range that satisfies the filtering condition (in addition to finding the first one). The advantage is that the filtered range can be spanned from both directions. Also, std.range.retro can be applied against the filtered range. The predicate is passed to std.functional.unaryFun, and can either accept a string, or any callable that can be executed via pred(element).Parameters:pred Function to apply to each element of range Range r Bidirectional range of elements Returns:a new range containing only the elements in r for which pred returns`true`

.Examples:import std.algorithm.comparison : equal; import std.range; int[] arr = [ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ]; auto small = filterBidirectional!("a < 3")(arr); static assert(isBidirectionalRange!(typeof(small))); writeln(small.back); // 2 assert(equal(small, [ 1, 2 ])); assert(equal(retro(small), [ 2, 1 ])); // In combination with chain() to span multiple ranges int[] a = [ 3, -2, 400 ]; int[] b = [ 100, -101, 102 ]; auto r = filterBidirectional!("a > 0")(chain(a, b)); writeln(r.back); // 102

- Group!(pred, Range)
`group`

(alias pred = "a == b", Range)(Range`r`

);

struct`Group`

(alias pred, R) if (isInputRange!R); - Groups consecutively equivalent elements into a single tuple of the element and the number of its repetitions.Similarly to uniq,
`group`

produces a range that iterates over unique consecutive elements of the given range. Each element of this range is a tuple of the element and the number of times it is repeated in the original range. Equivalence of elements is assessed by using the predicate pred, which defaults to "a == b". The predicate is passed to std.functional.binaryFun, and can either accept a string, or any callable that can be executed via pred(element, element).Parameters:pred Binary predicate for determining equivalence of two elements. Range `r`

The input range to iterate over. Returns:A range of elements of type Tuple!(ElementType!R, uint), representing each consecutively unique element and its respective number of occurrences in that run. This will be an input range if R is an input range, and a forward range in all other cases.See Also:chunkBy, which chunks an input range into subranges of equivalent adjacent elements.Examples:import std.algorithm.comparison : equal; import std.typecons : tuple, Tuple; int[] arr = [ 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 4, 4, 4, 5 ]; assert(equal(group(arr), [ tuple(1, 1u), tuple(2, 4u), tuple(3, 1u), tuple(4, 3u), tuple(5, 1u) ][]));

Examples:Using`group`

, an associative array can be easily generated with the count of each unique element in the range.import std.algorithm.sorting : sort; import std.array : assocArray; uint[string] result; auto range = ["a", "b", "a", "c", "b", "c", "c", "d", "e"]; result = range.sort!((a, b) => a < b) .group .assocArray; writeln(result); // ["a":2U, "b":2U, "c":3U, "d":1U, "e":1U]

- auto
`chunkBy`

(alias pred, Range)(Range`r`

)

if (isInputRange!Range); - Chunks an input range into subranges of equivalent adjacent elements. In other languages this is often called partitionBy, groupBy or sliceWhen.Equivalence is defined by the predicate pred, which can be either binary, which is passed to std.functional.binaryFun, or unary, which is passed to std.functional.unaryFun. In the binary form, two range elements a and b are considered equivalent if pred(a,b) is
`true`

. In unary form, two elements are considered equivalent if pred(a) == pred(b) is`true`

. This predicate must be an equivalence relation, that is, it must be reflexive (pred(x,x) is always`true`

), symmetric (pred(x,y) == pred(y,x)), and transitive (pred(x,y) && pred(y,z) implies pred(x,z)). If this is not the case, the range returned by`chunkBy`

may assert at runtime or behave erratically.Parameters:pred Predicate for determining equivalence. Range `r`

An input range to be chunked. Returns:With a binary predicate, a range of ranges is returned in which all elements in a given subrange are equivalent under the given predicate. With a unary predicate, a range of tuples is returned, with the tuple consisting of the result of the unary predicate for each subrange, and the subrange itself.Notes: Equivalent elements separated by an intervening non-equivalent element will appear in separate subranges; this function only considers adjacent equivalence. Elements in the subranges will always appear in the same order they appear in the original range.

See Also:group, which collapses adjacent equivalent elements into a single element.Examples:Showing usage with binary predicate:import std.algorithm.comparison : equal; // Grouping by particular attribute of each element: auto data = [ [1, 1], [1, 2], [2, 2], [2, 3] ]; auto r1 = data.chunkBy!((a,b) => a[0] == b[0]); assert(r1.equal!equal([ [[1, 1], [1, 2]], [[2, 2], [2, 3]] ])); auto r2 = data.chunkBy!((a,b) => a[1] == b[1]); assert(r2.equal!equal([ [[1, 1]], [[1, 2], [2, 2]], [[2, 3]] ]));

Examples:Showing usage with unary predicate:import std.algorithm.comparison : equal; import std.typecons : tuple; import std.range.primitives; // Grouping by particular attribute of each element: auto range = [ [1, 1], [1, 1], [1, 2], [2, 2], [2, 3], [2, 3], [3, 3] ]; auto byX = chunkBy!(a => a[0])(range); auto expected1 = [ tuple(1, [[1, 1], [1, 1], [1, 2]]), tuple(2, [[2, 2], [2, 3], [2, 3]]), tuple(3, [[3, 3]]) ]; foreach (e; byX) { assert(!expected1.empty); writeln(e[0]); // expected1.front[0] assert(e[1].equal(expected1.front[1])); expected1.popFront(); } auto byY = chunkBy!(a => a[1])(range); auto expected2 = [ tuple(1, [[1, 1], [1, 1]]), tuple(2, [[1, 2], [2, 2]]), tuple(3, [[2, 3], [2, 3], [3, 3]]) ]; foreach (e; byY) { assert(!expected2.empty); writeln(e[0]); // expected2.front[0] assert(e[1].equal(expected2.front[1])); expected2.popFront(); }

)

if (isInputRange!RoR && isInputRange!(ElementType!RoR) && isForwardRange!Separator && is(ElementType!Separator : ElementType!(ElementType!RoR)));

auto`joiner`

(RoR)(RoR`r`

)

if (isInputRange!RoR && isInputRange!(ElementType!RoR)); - Lazily joins a range of ranges with a separator. The separator itself is a range. If a separator is not provided, then the ranges are joined directly without anything in between them (often called flatten in other languages).Parameters:
RoR `r`

An input range of input ranges to be joined. Separator `sep`

A forward range of element(s) to serve as separators in the joined range. Returns:A range of elements in the joined range. This will be a forward range if both outer and inner ranges of RoR are forward ranges; otherwise it will be only an input range.See Also:std.range.chain, which chains a sequence of ranges with compatible elements into a single range.Examples:import std.algorithm.comparison : equal; import std.conv : text; assert(["abc", "def"].joiner.equal("abcdef")); assert(["Mary", "has", "a", "little", "lamb"] .joiner("...") .equal("Mary...has...a...little...lamb")); assert(["", "abc"].joiner("xyz").equal("xyzabc")); assert([""].joiner("xyz").equal("")); assert(["", ""].joiner("xyz").equal("xyz"));

`reduce`

(fun...) if (fun.length >= 1) - Implements the homonym function (also known as accumulate, compress, inject, or foldl) present in various programming languages of functional flavor. There is also fold which does the same thing but with the opposite parameter order. The call
`reduce`

!(fun)(seed, range) first assigns seed to an internal variable result, also called the accumulator. Then, for each element x in range, result = fun(result, x) gets evaluated. Finally, result is returned. The one-argument version`reduce`

!(fun)(range) works similarly, but it uses the first element of the range as the seed (the range must be non-empty).Returns:the accumulated resultParameters:fun one or more functions See Also:Fold (higher-order function) fold is functionally equivalent to`reduce`

">`reduce`

with the argument order reversed, and without the need to use tuple for multiple seeds. This makes it easier to use in UFCS chains. sum is similar to`reduce`

!((a, b) => a + b) that offers pairwise summing of floating point numbers.Examples:Many aggregate range operations turn out to be solved with`reduce`

quickly and easily. The example below illustrates`reduce`

's remarkable power and flexibility.import std.algorithm.comparison : max, min; import std.math : approxEqual; import std.range; int[] arr = [ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ]; // Sum all elements auto sum = reduce!((a,b) => a + b)(0, arr); writeln(sum); // 15 // Sum again, using a string predicate with "a" and "b" sum = reduce!"a + b"(0, arr); writeln(sum); // 15 // Compute the maximum of all elements auto largest = reduce!(max)(arr); writeln(largest); // 5 // Max again, but with Uniform Function Call Syntax (UFCS) largest = arr.reduce!(max); writeln(largest); // 5 // Compute the number of odd elements auto odds = reduce!((a,b) => a + (b & 1))(0, arr); writeln(odds); // 3 // Compute the sum of squares auto ssquares = reduce!((a,b) => a + b * b)(0, arr); writeln(ssquares); // 55 // Chain multiple ranges into seed int[] a = [ 3, 4 ]; int[] b = [ 100 ]; auto r = reduce!("a + b")(chain(a, b)); writeln(r); // 107 // Mixing convertible types is fair game, too double[] c = [ 2.5, 3.0 ]; auto r1 = reduce!("a + b")(chain(a, b, c)); assert(approxEqual(r1, 112.5)); // To minimize nesting of parentheses, Uniform Function Call Syntax can be used auto r2 = chain(a, b, c).reduce!("a + b"); assert(approxEqual(r2, 112.5));

Examples:Sometimes it is very useful to compute multiple aggregates in one pass. One advantage is that the computation is faster because the looping overhead is shared. That's why`reduce`

accepts multiple functions. If two or more functions are passed,`reduce`

returns a std.typecons.Tuple object with one member per passed-in function. The number of seeds must be correspondingly increased.import std.algorithm.comparison : max, min; import std.math : approxEqual, sqrt; import std.typecons : tuple, Tuple; double[] a = [ 3.0, 4, 7, 11, 3, 2, 5 ]; // Compute minimum and maximum in one pass auto r = reduce!(min, max)(a); // The type of r is Tuple!(int, int) assert(approxEqual(r[0], 2)); // minimum assert(approxEqual(r[1], 11)); // maximum // Compute sum and sum of squares in one pass r = reduce!("a + b", "a + b * b")(tuple(0.0, 0.0), a); assert(approxEqual(r[0], 35)); // sum assert(approxEqual(r[1], 233)); // sum of squares // Compute average and standard deviation from the above auto avg = r[0] / a.length; auto stdev = sqrt(r[1] / a.length - avg * avg);

should be a std.typecons.Tuple, with one field per function in f.For convenience, if the`seed`

is const, or has qualified fields, then`reduce`

will operate on an unqualified copy. If this happens then the returned type will not perfectly match S. Use fold instead of`reduce`

!(fun)(range, seed) first assigns seed to an internal variable result, also called the accumulator. Then, for each element x in range, result = fun(result, x) gets evaluated. Finally, result is returned. The one-argument version`fold`

!(fun)(range) works similarly, but it uses the first element of the range as the seed (the range must be non-empty).Returns:the accumulated resultSee Also:Fold (higher-order function) sum is similar to`fold`

!((a, b) => a + b) that offers precise summing of floating point numbers. This is functionally equivalent to reduce with the argument order reversed, and without the need to use tuple for multiple seeds.Examples:immutable arr = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]; // Sum all elements writeln(arr.fold!( (a, b) => a + b)); // 15 // Sum all elements with explicit seed writeln(arr.fold!( (a, b) => a + b)(6)); // 21 import std.algorithm.comparison : min, max; import std.typecons : tuple; // Compute minimum and maximum at the same time writeln(arr.fold!(min, max)); // tuple(1, 5) // Compute minimum and maximum at the same time with seeds writeln(arr.fold!(min, max)(0, 7)); // tuple(0, 7) // Can be used in a UFCS chain writeln(arr.map!(a => a + 1).fold!( (a, b) => a + b)); // 20 // Return the last element of any range writeln(arr.fold!( (a, b) => b)); // 5

`cumulativeFold`

(fun...) if (fun.length >= 1) - Similar to fold, but returns a range containing the successive reduced values. The call
`cumulativeFold`

!(fun)(range, seed) first assigns seed to an internal variable result, also called the accumulator. The returned range contains the values result = fun(result, x) lazily evaluated for each element x in range. Finally, the last element has the same value as fold!(fun)(seed, range). The one-argument version`cumulativeFold`

!(fun)(range) works similarly, but it returns the first element unchanged and uses it as seed for the next elements. This function is also known as partial_sum, accumulate, scan, Cumulative Sum.Parameters:fun one or more functions to use as fold operation Returns:The function returns a range containing the consecutive reduced values. If there is more than one fun, the element type will be std.typecons.Tuple containing one element for each fun.See Also:Examples:import std.algorithm.comparison : max, min; import std.array : array; import std.math : approxEqual; import std.range : chain; int[] arr = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]; // Partial sum of all elements auto sum = cumulativeFold!((a, b) => a + b)(arr, 0); writeln(sum.array); // [1, 3, 6, 10, 15] // Partial sum again, using a string predicate with "a" and "b" auto sum2 = cumulativeFold!"a + b"(arr, 0); writeln(sum2.array); // [1, 3, 6, 10, 15] // Compute the partial maximum of all elements auto largest = cumulativeFold!max(arr); writeln(largest.array); // [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] // Partial max again, but with Uniform Function Call Syntax (UFCS) largest = arr.cumulativeFold!max; writeln(largest.array); // [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] // Partial count of odd elements auto odds = arr.cumulativeFold!((a, b) => a + (b & 1))(0); writeln(odds.array); // [1, 1, 2, 2, 3] // Compute the partial sum of squares auto ssquares = arr.cumulativeFold!((a, b) => a + b * b)(0); writeln(ssquares.array); // [1, 5, 14, 30, 55] // Chain multiple ranges into seed int[] a = [3, 4]; int[] b = [100]; auto r = cumulativeFold!"a + b"(chain(a, b)); writeln(r.array); // [3, 7, 107] // Mixing convertible types is fair game, too double[] c = [2.5, 3.0]; auto r1 = cumulativeFold!"a + b"(chain(a, b, c)); assert(approxEqual(r1, [3, 7, 107, 109.5, 112.5])); // To minimize nesting of parentheses, Uniform Function Call Syntax can be used auto r2 = chain(a, b, c).cumulativeFold!"a + b"; assert(approxEqual(r2, [3, 7, 107, 109.5, 112.5]));

Examples:Sometimes it is very useful to compute multiple aggregates in one pass. One advantage is that the computation is faster because the looping overhead is shared. That's why`cumulativeFold`

should be a std.typecons.Tuple, with one field per function in f. For convenience, if the`seed`

This can be used with any narrow string type or sliceable range type, but is most popular with string types.Two adjacent separators are considered to surround an empty element in the split range. Use filter!(a => !a.empty) on the result to compress empty elements. The predicate is passed to std.functional.binaryFun, and can either accept a string, or any callable that can be executed via pred(element,
`s`

). If the empty range is given, the result is a range with one empty element. If a range with one separator is given, the result is a range with two empty elements. If splitting a string on whitespace and token compression is desired, consider using`splitter`

without specifying a separator (see fourth overload below).Parameters:pred The predicate for comparing each element with the separator, defaulting to "a == b". Range `r`

The input range to be split. Must support slicing and .length. Separator `s`

The element to be treated as the separator between range segments to be split. Constraints: The predicate pred needs to accept an element of

`r`

and the separator`s`

.Returns:An input range of the subranges of elements between separators. If`r`

is a forward range or bidirectional range, the returned range will be likewise.See Also:std.regex.splitter for a version that splits using a regular expression defined separator.Examples:import std.algorithm.comparison : equal; assert(equal(splitter("hello world", ' '), [ "hello", "", "world" ])); int[] a = [ 1, 2, 0, 0, 3, 0, 4, 5, 0 ]; int[][] w = [ [1, 2], [], [3], [4, 5], [] ]; assert(equal(splitter(a, 0), w)); a = [ 0 ]; assert(equal(splitter(a, 0), [ (int[]).init, (int[]).init ])); a = [ 0, 1 ]; assert(equal(splitter(a, 0), [ [], [1] ])); w = [ [0], [1], [2] ]; assert(equal(splitter!"a.front == b"(w, 1), [ [[0]], [[2]] ]));

The isTerminator predicate is passed to std.functional.unaryFun and can either accept a string, or any callable that can be executed via pred(element, s).Two adjacent separators are considered to surround an empty element in the split range.

!(std.uni.isWhite), runs of whitespace will be merged together (no empty tokens will be produced).Parameters:C[] `s`

The string to be split. Returns:An input range of slices of the original string split by whitespace.Examples:import std.algorithm.comparison : equal; auto a = " a bcd ef gh "; assert(equal(splitter(a), ["a", "bcd", "ef", "gh"][]));

`r`

, which must be a finite input range. Although conceptually`sum`

(`r`

) is equivalent to fold!((a, b) => a + b)(`r`

, 0),`sum`

uses specialized algorithms to maximize accuracy, as follows.- If std.range.primitives.ElementType!R is a floating-point
type and R is a
random-access range with
length and slicing, then
`sum`

uses the pairwise summation algorithm. - If ElementType!R is a floating-point type and R is a
finite input range (but not a random-access range with slicing), then
`sum`

uses the Kahan summation algorithm. - In all other cases, a simple element by element addition is done.

`seed`

may be passed to`sum`

. Not only will this`seed`

be used as an initial value, but its type will override all the above, and determine the algorithm and precision used for summation. Note that these specialized summing algorithms execute more primitive operations than vanilla summation. Therefore, if in certain cases maximum speed is required at expense of precision, one can use fold!((a, b) => a + b)(`r`

, 0), which is not specialized for summation.Parameters:E `seed`

the initial value of the summation R `r`

a finite input range Returns:The`sum`

`uniq`

if (isInputRange!Range && is(typeof(binaryFun!pred(`r`

Equivalence of elements is assessed by using the predicate pred, by default "a == b". The predicate is passed to std.functional.binaryFun, and can either accept a string, or any callable that can be executed via pred(element, element). If the given range is bidirectional,
`uniq`

also yields a bidirectional range.Parameters:pred Predicate for determining equivalence between range elements. Range `r`

An input range of elements to filter. Returns:An input range of consecutively unique elements in the original range. If`r`

is also a forward range or bidirectional range, the returned range will be likewise.Examples:import std.algorithm.mutation : copy; import std.algorithm.comparison : equal; int[] arr = [ 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 4, 4, 4, 5 ]; assert(equal(uniq(arr), [ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ][])); // Filter duplicates in-place using copy arr.length -= arr.uniq().copy(arr).length; writeln(arr); // [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] // Note that uniqueness is only determined consecutively; duplicated // elements separated by an intervening different element will not be // eliminated: assert(equal(uniq([ 1, 1, 2, 1, 1, 3, 1]), [1, 2, 1, 3, 1]));

Examples:import std.algorithm.comparison : equal; struct S { int i; string s; } auto arr = [ S(1, "a"), S(1, "b"), S(2, "c"), S(2, "d") ]; // Let's consider just the 'i' member for equality auto r = arr.uniq!((a, b) => a.i == b.i); assert(r.equal([S(1, "a"), S(2, "c")])); writeln(r.front); // S(1, "a") writeln(r.back); // S(2, "c") r.popBack; writeln(r.back); // S(1, "a") writeln(r.front); // r.back r.popBack; assert(r.empty); import std.exception : assertThrown; assertThrown!Error(r.front); assertThrown!Error(r.back); assertThrown!Error(r.popFront); assertThrown!Error(r.popBack);
