The eq
method implements an [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equivalence_relation equivalence relation] on
non-null instances of AnyRef
:
* It is reflexive: for any non-null instance x
of type AnyRef
, x.eq(x)
returns true
.
* It is symmetric: for any non-null instances x
and y
of type AnyRef
, x.eq(y)
returns true
if and
only if y.eq(x)
returns true
.
* It is transitive: for any non-null instances x
, y
, and z
of type AnyRef
if x.eq(y)
returns true
and y.eq(z)
returns true
, then x.eq(z)
returns true
.
Additionally, the eq
method has three other 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

the type of the second half of the returned pairs
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.
The iterable providing the second half of each result pair
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)
.
a new collection of type That
containing pairs consisting of
corresponding elements of this range and that
. The length
of the returned collection is the minimum of the lengths of this range and that
.
[use case] Returns a range formed from this range and another iterable collection by combining corresponding elements in pairs.
Returns a range formed from this range 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.
the type of the second half of the returned pairs
The iterable providing the second half of each result pair
the element to be used to fill up the result if this range is shorter than that
.
the element to be used to fill up the result if that
is shorter than this range.
a new range containing pairs consisting of
corresponding elements of this range and that
. The length
of the returned collection is the maximum of the lengths of this range and that
.
If this range is shorter than that
, thisElem
values are used to pad the result.
If that
is shorter than this range, thatElem
values are used to pad the result.
Returns a range formed from this range and another iterable collection by combining corresponding elements in pairs.

[use case] Zips this range with its indices.
Zips this range with its indices.
A new range containing pairs consisting of all elements of this
range paired with their index. Indices start at 0
.
@example
List("a", "b", "c").zipWithIndex = List(("a", 0), ("b", 1), ("c", 2))
Zips this range with its indices.
Zips this range with its indices.
the type of the first half of the returned pairs (this is always a supertype
of the collection's element type A
).
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, Int)
being admissible for that class,
which means that an implicit instance of type CanBuildFrom[Repr, (A1, Int), That]

is found.
A new collection of type That
containing pairs consisting of all elements of this
range paired with their index. Indices start at 0
.
The
Range
class represents integer values in range [start;end) with non-zero step valuestep
. It's a special case of an indexed sequence. For example:version
