HomogeneousAggregate SΒΆ

aggcat.spad line 56

A homogeneous aggregate is an aggregate of elements all of the same type. In the current system, all aggregates are homogeneous. Two attributes characterize classes of aggregates. Aggregates from domains with attribute finiteAggregate have a finite number of members. Of course, such a domain may have an infinite number of elements, like, for example List. Those domains with attribute shallowlyMutable allow an element to be modified or updated without changing its overall value.

from BasicType
any?: (S -> Boolean, %) -> Boolean if % has finiteAggregate
any?(p, u) tests if p(x) is true for any element x of u. Note: for collections, any?(p, u) = reduce(or, map(p, u), false, true). However, any?(p, u) returns as soon as it finds an element for which p gives true.

count: (S -> Boolean, %) -> NonNegativeInteger if % has finiteAggregate
count(p, u) returns the number of elements x in u such that p(x) is true. For collections, count(p, u) = reduce(+, [1 for x in u | p(x)], 0).
count: (S, %) -> NonNegativeInteger if S has BasicType and % has finiteAggregate
count(x, u) returns the number of occurrences of x in u. For collections, count(x, u) = reduce(+, [1 for y in u | x = y], 0).

every?(p, u) tests if p(x) is true for all elements x of u. Note: for collections, every?(p, u) = reduce(and, map(p, u), true, false). However, every?(p, u) returns as soon as it finds an element for which p gives false.

map!: (S -> S, %) -> % if % has shallowlyMutable
map!(f, u) destructively replaces each element x of u by f(x).
map: (S -> S, %) -> %
map(f, u) returns a copy of u with each element x replaced by f(x). For collections, map(f, u) = [f(x) for x in u].
member?: (S, %) -> Boolean if S has BasicType and % has finiteAggregate
member?(x, u) tests if x is a member of u. For collections, member?(x, u) = reduce(or, [x=y for y in u], false). However, member?(x, u) returns as soon as it finds a member.
members: % -> List S if % has finiteAggregate
members(u) returns a list of the consecutive elements of u. For multisets members gives result with no repetition. See also parts.
more?: (%, NonNegativeInteger) -> Boolean
from Aggregate
parts: % -> List S if % has finiteAggregate
parts(u) returns a list of the consecutive elements of u. For finite collections, construct(parts(u)) = u.
