Seq::Bounded cpan:DMAESTRO last updated on 2019-05-22

NAME

Seq::Bounded

SYNOPSIS

use Seq::Bounded;

my $infinite-squares = { 1, 2 ... * }.map(* ** 2);

my $three-digit-squares = ($infinite-squares but Bounded)
    .while(:skip, * < 100)
    .until(* >= 1000);

DESCRIPTION

This role, when applied to a (possibly infinite) sequence, allows adding bounds conditions based the values of the sequence. This is useful when an infinite Seq is mapped by a function - in such a case, it could be inconvenient to specify the bound in the sequence generator.

Applying this role adds the methods while and until. An optional adverb :skip converts the bound from the end of the Seq to the start.

The role only applies to classes (and objects) of type Seq or its subclasses.

METHODS

method while

method while(
    &cond
) returns Seq

while tests the given condition against each member of the sequence and terminates the sequence when the condition is no longer satisfied.

method while

method while(
    &cond,
    :$skip!
) returns Seq

with the :skip adverb

method until

method until(
    &cond
) returns Seq

until tests the given condition against each member of the sequence and terminates the sequence when the condition is satisfied.

method until

method until(
    &cond,
    :$skip!
) returns Seq

with the :skip adverb
