trait
Seq[+A]
extends
PartialFunction[Int, A] with
Collection[A]Seq[A]
represents finite sequences of elements
of type A
.Method Summary  
override def

++
[B >: A](that : Iterable[B]) : Seq[B]
Appends two iterable objects.

override def

concat
[B >: A](that : Iterable[B]) : Seq[B]
Appends two iterable objects.

def

contains
(elem : Any) : Boolean
Tests if the given value
elem is a member of this
sequence. 
def

containsSlice
[B](that : Seq[B]) : Boolean
Is
that a slice in this? 
override def

drop
(n : Int) : Seq[A]
Returns this sequence without its
n first elements
If this sequence has less than n elements, the empty
sequence is returned. (nonstrict) 
override def

dropWhile
(p : (A) => Boolean) : Seq[A]
Returns the longest suffix of this sequence whose first element
does not satisfy the predicate
p . 
def

endsWith [B](that : Seq[B]) : Boolean 
def

equalsWith [B](that : Seq[B])(f : (A, B) => Boolean) : Boolean 
override def

filter
(p : (A) => Boolean) : Seq[A]
Returns all the elements of this sequence that satisfy the
predicate
p . The order of the elements is preserved. 
override def

flatMap
[B](f : (A) => Iterable[B]) : Seq[B]
Applies the given function
f to each element of
this sequence, then concatenates the results. 
def

headOption
: Option[A]
Returns as an option the first element of this list or None if list is empty.

def

indexOf [B >: A](that : Seq[B]) : Int 
def

isDefinedAt
(x : Int) : Boolean
Is this partial function defined for the index
x ? 
override def

isEmpty
: Boolean
Returns true if length == 0

def

last
: A
Returns the last element of this list.

def

lastIndexOf
[B >: A](elem : B) : Int
Returns the index of the last occurence of the specified element
in this sequence, or 1 if the sequence does not contain this element.

def

lastOption
: Option[A]
Returns as an option the last element of this list or None if list is empty.

abstract def

length
: Int
Returns the length of the sequence.

def

lengthCompare
(l : Int) : Int
Returns length  l. This method is used by matching streams against rightignoring (...,_) patterns.
Lazy sequences should override this method if length forces evaluation of the stream.

override def

map
[B](f : (A) => B) : Seq[B]
Returns the sequence resulting from applying the given function
f to each element of this sequence. 
override def

projection
: Projection[A]
returns a projection that can be used to call nonstrict
filter ,
map , and flatMap methods that build projections
of the collection. 
def

reverse
: Seq[A]
A sequence consisting of all elements of this sequence in reverse order.

def

size
: Int
should always be
length 
def

slice
(from : Int, until : Int) : Seq[A]
A subsequence of
len elements
starting at index from (nonstrict) 
def

startsWith [B](that : Seq[B]) : Boolean 
def

subseq
(from : Int, end : Int) : Seq[A]
Returns a subsequence starting from index
from
consisting of len elements. 
override def

take
(n : Int) : Seq[A]
Returns a sequence consisting only over the first
n
elements of this sequence, or else the whole sequence, if it has less
than n elements. (nonstrict) 
override def

takeWhile
(p : (A) => Boolean) : Seq[A]
Returns the longest prefix of this sequence whose elements satisfy
the predicate
p . 
override def

toArray
[B >: A] : Array[B]
Converts this sequence to a fresh Array with
length elements.
