A degenerate implementation could always return 0. However, it is required that if two objects are equal (o1.equals(o2) returns true) that they have identical hash codes (o1.hashCode.equals(o2.hashCode)). Therefore, when overriding this method, be sure to verify that the behavior is consistent with the equals method.

93. def view(from: Int, until: Int): IterableView[A, This]

Returns a set formed from this set and another iterable collection by combining corresponding elements in pairs

Returns a set formed from this set and another iterable collection by combining corresponding elements in pairs. If one of the two collections is longer than the other, its remaining elements are ignored.

B

the type of the second half of the returned pairs

That

the class of the returned collection. Where possible, That is the same class as the current collection class Repr, but this depends on the element type (A1, B) being admissible for that class, which means that an implicit instance of type CanBuildFrom[Repr, (A1, B), That]. is found.

that

The iterable providing the second half of each result pair

bf

an implicit value of class CanBuildFrom which determines the result class That from the current representation type Repr and the new element type (A1, B).

Returns a set formed from this set and another iterable collection by combining corresponding elements in pairs

Returns a set formed from this set and another iterable collection by combining corresponding elements in pairs. If one of the two collections is shorter than the other, placeholder elements are used to extend the shorter collection to the length of the longer.

If this set is shorter than that, thisElem values are used to pad the result. If that is shorter than this set, thatElem values are used to pad the result.

A1

the type of the first half of the returned pairs (this is always a supertype of the collection's element type A).

returns

A new collection of type That containing pairs consisting of all elements of this set paired with their index. Indices start at 0.
