### Abstract Value Members

1. #### abstract def /:[B](z: B)(op: (B, A) ⇒ B): B

Applies a binary operator to a start value and all elements of this collection or iterator, going left to right.

Applies a binary operator to a start value and all elements of this collection or iterator, going left to right.

Note: `/:` is alternate syntax for `foldLeft`; `z /: xs` is the same as `xs foldLeft z`.

Examples:

Note that the folding function used to compute b is equivalent to that used to compute c.

```scala> val a = List(1,2,3,4)
a: List[Int] = List(1, 2, 3, 4)

scala> val b = (5 /: a)(_+_)
b: Int = 15

scala> val c = (5 /: a)((x,y) => x + y)
c: Int = 15```

Note: will not terminate for infinite-sized collections.

Note: might return different results for different runs, unless the underlying collection type is ordered or the operator is associative and commutative.

B

the result type of the binary operator.

z

the start value.

op

the binary operator.

returns

the result of inserting `op` between consecutive elements of this collection or iterator, going left to right with the start value `z` on the left:

`op(...op(op(z, x_1), x_2), ..., x_n)`

where `x1, ..., xn` are the elements of this collection or iterator.

2. #### abstract def :\[B](z: B)(op: (A, B) ⇒ B): B

Applies a binary operator to all elements of this collection or iterator and a start value, going right to left.

Applies a binary operator to all elements of this collection or iterator and a start value, going right to left.

Note: `:\` is alternate syntax for `foldRight`; `xs :\ z` is the same as `xs foldRight z`.

Note: will not terminate for infinite-sized collections.

Note: might return different results for different runs, unless the underlying collection type is ordered or the operator is associative and commutative.

Examples:

Note that the folding function used to compute b is equivalent to that used to compute c.

```scala> val a = List(1,2,3,4)
a: List[Int] = List(1, 2, 3, 4)

scala> val b = (a :\ 5)(_+_)
b: Int = 15

scala> val c = (a :\ 5)((x,y) => x + y)
c: Int = 15```
B

the result type of the binary operator.

z

the start value

op

the binary operator

returns

the result of inserting `op` between consecutive elements of this collection or iterator, going right to left with the start value `z` on the right:

`op(x_1, op(x_2, ... op(x_n, z)...))`

where `x1, ..., xn` are the elements of this collection or iterator.

3. #### abstract def aggregate[B](z: ⇒ B)(seqop: (B, A) ⇒ B, combop: (B, B) ⇒ B): B

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 has similar semantics, but does not require the result to be a supertype of the element type. It traverses the elements in different partitions sequentially, using `seqop` to update the result, and then applies `combop` to results from different partitions. The implementation of this operation may operate on an arbitrary number of collection partitions, so `combop` may be invoked an arbitrary number of times.

For example, one might want to process some elements and then produce a `Set`. In this case, `seqop` would process an element and append it to the list, while `combop` would concatenate two lists from different partitions together. The initial value `z` would be an empty set.

`pc.aggregate(Set[Int]())(_ += process(_), _ ++ _)`

Another example is calculating geometric mean from a collection of doubles (one would typically require big doubles for this).

B

the type of accumulated results

z

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 more than once

seqop

an operator used to accumulate results within a partition

combop

an associative operator used to combine results from different partitions

[use case]

Returns a new general sequence containing the elements from the left hand operand followed by the elements from the right hand operand. The element type of the general sequence is the most specific superclass encompassing the element types of the two operands.

Example:

scala> val b = List(2)
b: List[Int] = List(2)

scala> val c = a ++ b
c: List[Int] = List(1, 2)

y: List[Int] = List(2, 1)

scala> println(x)

For example:

```// lettersOf will return a Seq[Char] of likely repeated letters, instead of a Set
def lettersOf(words: Seq[String]) = words flatMap (word => word.toSet)

// lettersOf will return a Set[Char], not a Seq
def lettersOf(words: Seq[String]) = words.toSet flatMap (word => word.toSeq)

// xs will be an Iterable[Int]
val xs = Map("a" -> List(11,111), "b" -> List(22,222)).flatMap(_._2)

// ys will be a Map[Int, Int]

Returns a parallel implementation of this collection.

Returns a parallel implementation of this collection.

For most collection types, this method creates a new parallel collection by copying all the elements. For these collection, `par` 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.

Specific collections (e.g. `ParArray` or `mutable.ParHashMap`) override this default behaviour by creating a parallel collection which shares the same underlying dataset. For these collections, `par` takes constant or sublinear time.

All parallel collections return a reference to themselves.

returns

a new general sequence containing pairs consisting of corresponding elements of this general sequence and `that`. The length of the returned collection is the maximum of the lengths of this general sequence and `that`. If this general sequence is shorter than `that`, `thisElem` values are used to pad the result. If `that` is shorter than this general sequence, `thatElem` values are used to pad the result.

[use case] Zips this general sequence with its indices.

[use case]

Zips this general sequence with its indices.

Note: might return different results for different runs, unless the underlying collection type is ordered.

returns

A new general sequence containing pairs consisting of all elements of this general sequence paired with their index. Indices start at `0`.

Implicit information
This member is added by an implicit conversion from GenSeqLike[A, Repr] to ArrowAssoc[GenSeqLike[A, Repr]] performed by method ArrowAssoc in scala.Predef.
