[use case] Returns a new sequence containing the elements from the left hand operand followed by the elements from the right hand operand.
Returns a new sequence containing the elements from the left hand operand followed by the elements from the right hand operand. The element type of the sequence is the most specific superclass encompassing the element types of the two operands.
Example:
scala> val a = List(1) a: List[Int] = List(1) scala> val b = List(2) b: List[Int] = List(2) scala> val c = a ++ b c: List[Int] = List(1, 2) scala> val d = List('a') d: List[Char] = List(a) scala> val e = c ++ d e: List[AnyVal] = List(1, 2, a)

.
As with ++
, returns a new collection containing the elements from the
left operand followed by the elements from the right operand.
As with ++
, returns a new collection containing the elements from the
left operand followed by the elements from the right operand.
It differs from ++
in that the right operand determines the type of
the resulting collection rather than the left one.
Mnemonic: the COLon is on the side of the new COLlection type.
Example:
scala> val x = List(1) x: List[Int] = List(1) scala> val y = LinkedList(2) y: scala.collection.mutable.LinkedList[Int] = LinkedList(2) scala> val z = x ++: y z: scala.collection.mutable.LinkedList[Int] = LinkedList(1, 2)
This overload exists because: for the implementation of ++:
we should
reuse that of ++
because many collections override it with more
efficient versions.
Since TraversableOnce
has no ++
method, we have to implement that
directly, but Traversable
and down can use the overload.

Note that :-ending operators are right associative (see example).
A mnemonic for +:

is: the COLon goes on the COLlection side.
Also, the original sequence is not modified, so you will want to capture the result.

Aggregates the results of applying an operator to subsequent elements.
Aggregates the results of applying an operator to subsequent elements.
This is a more general form of fold
and reduce
. It is similar to
foldLeft
in that it doesn't require the result to be a supertype of the
element type. In addition, it allows parallel collections to be processed
in chunks, and then combines the intermediate results.
aggregate
splits the traversable or iterator into partitions and processes each
partition by sequentially applying seqop
, starting with z
(like
foldLeft
). Those intermediate results are then combined by using
combop
(like fold
). The implementation of this operation may operate
on an arbitrary number of collection partitions (even 1), so combop
may
be invoked an arbitrary number of times (even 0).
As an example, consider summing up the integer values of a list of chars.
The initial value for the sum is 0. First, seqop
transforms each input
character to an Int and adds it to the sum (of the partition). Then,
combop
just needs to sum up the intermediate results of the partitions:
List('a', 'b', 'c').aggregate(0)({ (sum, ch) => sum + ch.toInt }, { (p1, p2) => p1 + p2 })
the type of accumulated results
the initial value for the accumulated result of the partition - this
will typically be the neutral element for the seqop
operator (e.g.
Nil
for list concatenation or 0
for summation) and may be evaluated

Applies this partial function to the given argument when it is contained in the function domain.
Applies this partial function to the given argument when it is contained in the function domain. Applies fallback function where this partial function is not defined.
Note that expression pf.applyOrElse(x, default)
is equivalent to
if(pf isDefinedAt x) pf(x) else default(x)
except that applyOrElse
method can be implemented more efficiently.
For all partial function literals the compiler generates an applyOrElse
implementation which
avoids double evaluation of pattern matchers and guards.
This makes applyOrElse
the basis for the efficient implementation for many operations and scenarios, such as:
orElse
/andThen
chains does not lead to
excessive apply
/isDefinedAt
evaluationlift
and unlift
do not evaluate source functions twice on each invocationrunWith
allows efficient imperative-style combining of partial functions
with conditionally applied actions For non-literal partial function classes with nontrivial isDefinedAt
method
it is recommended to override applyOrElse
with custom implementation that avoids
double isDefinedAt
evaluation. This may result in better performance
and more predictable behavior w.r.t. side effects.

Cast the receiver object to be of type T0

Cast the receiver object to be of type T0

Iterates over combinations.
Iterates over combinations. A _combination_ of length n
is a subsequence of
the original sequence, with the elements taken in order. Thus, "xy"
and "yy"
are both length-2 combinations of "xyy"
, but "yx"
is not. If there is
more than one way to generate the same subsequence, only one will be returned.
For example, "xyyy"
has three different ways to generate "xy"
depending on
whether the first, second, or third "y"
is selected. However, since all are
identical, only one will be chosen. Which of the three will be taken is an
implementation detail that is not defined.

The eq

methods, it is important to ensure that their behavior is
consistent with reference equality. Therefore, if two objects are references to each other (o1 eq o2

For example:

Tests whether this traversable collection is known to have a finite size.
Tests whether this traversable collection is known to have a finite size.
All strict collections are known to have finite size. For a non-strict
collection such as Stream
, the predicate returns true
if all
elements have been computed. It returns false
if the stream is
not yet evaluated to the end. Non-empty Iterators usually return
false
even if they were created from a collection with a known
finite size.
Note: many collection methods will not work on collections of infinite sizes.
The typical failure mode is an infinite loop. These methods always attempt a
traversal without checking first that hasDefiniteSize
returns true

Returns a parallel implementation of this collection.
For most collection types, this method creates a new parallel collection by copying

takes linear time. Mutable collections
in this category do not produce a mutable parallel collection that has the same
underlying dataset, so changes in one collection will not be reflected in the other one.

behaviour by creating a parallel collection which shares the same underlying dataset.

Transposes this collection of traversable collections into a collection of collections.
Transposes this collection of traversable collections into a collection of collections.
The resulting collection's type will be guided by the static type of collection. For example:
val xs = List( Set(1, 2, 3), Set(4, 5, 6)).transpose // xs == List( // List(1, 4), // List(2, 5), // List(3, 6)) val ys = Vector( List(1, 2, 3), List(4, 5, 6)).transpose // ys == Vector( // Vector(1, 4), // Vector(2, 5), // Vector(3, 6))

are not of the same size.
[use case] Produces a new sequence which contains all elements of this sequence and also all elements of a given sequence.
Produces a new sequence which contains all elements of this sequence and also all elements of
a given sequence. xs union ys
is equivalent to xs ++ ys
.
Another way to express this
is that xs union ys
computes the order-preserving multi-set union of xs
and ys
.
union
is hence a counter-part of diff
and intersect
which also work on multi-sets.

followed by all elements of that
.
