# LinearSeq

#### trait LinearSeq[+A] extends Seq[A] with GenericTraversableTemplate[A, LinearSeq] with LinearSeqLike[A, LinearSeq[A]]

A base trait for linear sequences.

Linear sequences are defined in terms of three abstract methods, which are assumed to have efficient implementations. These are:

def isEmpty: Boolean
def tail: Repr

Here, A is the type of the sequence elements and Repr is the type of the sequence itself.

Linear sequences do not add any new methods to Seq, but promise efficient implementations of linear access patterns.

[use case]

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 c = a ++ b

scala> val e = c ++ d

6. #### def ++:[B >: A, That](that: Traversable[B])(implicit bf: CanBuildFrom[LinearSeq[A], B, That]): That

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 z = x ++: y

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.

B

the element type of the returned collection.

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 B being admissible for that class, which means that an implicit instance of type CanBuildFrom[Repr, B, That] is found.

that

the traversable to append.

bf

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

returns

a new collection of type That which contains all elements of this sequence followed by all elements of that.

[use case]

A copy of the sequence with an element prepended.

Note that :-ending operators are right associative (see example). A mnemonic for +: vs. :+ is: the COLon goes on the COLlection side.

Also, the original sequence is not modified, so you will want to capture the result.

Example:

scala> val y = 2 +: x

scala> println(x)
elem

the prepended element

returns

a new sequence consisting of elem followed by all elements of this sequence.

Definition Classes

18. #### 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)

seqop

an operator used to accumulate results within a partition

combop

an associative operator used to combine results from different partitions

20. #### def applyOrElse[A1 <: Int, B1 >: A](x: A1, default: (A1) ⇒ B1): B1

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 compiler generates 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:

• combining partial functions into orElse/andThen chains does not lead to excessive apply/isDefinedAt evaluation
• lift and unlift do not evaluate source functions twice on each invocation
• runWith 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.

x

default

the fallback function

returns

the result of this function or fallback function application.

21. #### final def asInstanceOf[T0]: T0

Cast the receiver object to be of type T0.

Cast the receiver object to be of type T0.

Note that the success of a cast at runtime is modulo Scala's erasure semantics. Therefore the expression 1.asInstanceOf[String] will throw a ClassCastException at runtime, while the expression List(1).asInstanceOf[List[String]] will not. In the latter example, because the type argument is erased as part of compilation it is not possible to check whether the contents of the list are of the requested type.

49. #### final def eq(arg0: AnyRef): Boolean

Tests whether the argument (arg0) is a reference to the receiver object (this).

Tests whether the argument (arg0) is a reference to the receiver object (this).

The eq method implements an equivalence relation on non-null instances of AnyRef, and has three additional properties:

• It is consistent: for any non-null instances x and y of type AnyRef, multiple invocations of x.eq(y) consistently returns true or consistently returns false.
• For any non-null instance x of type AnyRef, x.eq(null) and null.eq(x) returns false.
• null.eq(null) returns true.

When overriding the equals or hashCode 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), they should be equal to each other (o1 == o2) and they should hash to the same value (o1.hashCode == o2.hashCode).

returns

true if the argument is a reference to the receiver object; false otherwise.

[use case] Builds a new collection by applying a function to all elements of this sequence and using the elements of the resulting collections.

[use case]

Builds a new collection by applying a function to all elements of this sequence and using the elements of the resulting collections.

For example:

def getWords(lines: Seq[String]): Seq[String] = lines flatMap (line => line split "\\W+")

The type of the resulting collection is guided by the static type of sequence. This might cause unexpected results sometimes. 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 a an Iterable[Int]
val xs = Map("a" -> List(11,111), "b" -> List(22,222)).flatMap(_._2)

// ys will be a Map[Int, Int]
val ys = Map("a" -> List(1 -> 11,1 -> 111), "b" -> List(2 -> 22,2 -> 222)).flatMap(_._2)

the type of the second half of the returned pairs

that

The iterable providing the second half of each result pair

thisElem

the element to be used to fill up the result if this sequence is shorter than that.

thatElem

the element to be used to fill up the result if that is shorter than this sequence.

returns

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