    sparsearray2iterator

    NPM version Build Status Coverage Status

    Create an iterator from a sparse array-like object.

    Installation

    npm install @stdlib/array-to-sparse-iterator

    Usage

    var sparsearray2iterator = require( '@stdlib/array-to-sparse-iterator' );

    sparsearray2iterator( src[, mapFcn[, thisArg]] )

    Returns an iterator which iterates over each element in a sparse array-like object.

    var it = sparsearray2iterator( [ 1, , , 4 ] );
    // returns <Object>
    
    var v = it.next().value;
    // returns 1
    
    v = it.next().value;
    // returns 4
    
    var bool = it.next().done;
    // returns true

    The returned iterator protocol-compliant object has the following properties:

    • next: function which returns an iterator protocol-compliant object containing the next iterated value (if one exists) assigned to a value property and a done property having a boolean value indicating whether the iterator is finished.
    • return: function which closes an iterator and returns a single (optional) argument in an iterator protocol-compliant object.

    To invoke a function for each src value, provide a callback function.

    function fcn( v ) {
        return v * 10.0;
    }
    
    var it = sparsearray2iterator( [ 1, , 3, 4 ], fcn );
    // returns <Object>
    
    var v = it.next().value;
    // returns 10.0
    
    v = it.next().value;
    // returns 30.0
    
    // ...

    The invoked function is provided three arguments:

    • value: iterated value.
    • index: iterated value index.
    • src: source array-like object.
    function fcn( v, i ) {
        return v * (i+1);
    }
    
    var it = sparsearray2iterator( [ 1, 2, , 4 ], fcn );
    // returns <Object>
    
    var v = it.next().value;
    // returns 1
    
    v = it.next().value;
    // returns 4
    
    v = it.next().value;
    // returns 16

    To set the callback function execution context, provide a thisArg.

    function fcn( v ) {
        this.count += 1;
        return v * 10.0;
    }
    
    var ctx = {
        'count': 0
    };
    
    var it = sparsearray2iterator( [ 1, , 3, 4 ], fcn, ctx );
    // returns <Object>
    
    var v = it.next().value;
    // returns 10.0
    
    v = it.next().value;
    // returns 30.0
    
    var count = ctx.count;
    // returns 2

    Notes

    • If an environment supports Symbol.iterator, the returned iterator is iterable.
    • If provided a generic array, the returned iterator ignores holes (i.e., undefined values). To iterate over all generic array elements, use @stdlib/array/to-iterator.
    • A returned iterator does not copy a provided array-like object. To ensure iterable reproducibility, copy a provided array-like object before creating an iterator. Otherwise, any changes to the contents of an array-like object will be reflected in the returned iterator.
    • In environments supporting Symbol.iterator, the function explicitly does not invoke an array's @@iterator method, regardless of whether this method is defined. To convert an array to an implementation defined iterator, invoke this method directly.
    • The returned iterator supports array-like objects having getter and setter accessors for array element access (e.g., @stdlib/array/complex64).

    Examples

    var Float64Array = require( '@stdlib/array-float64' );
    var inmap = require( '@stdlib/utils-inmap' );
    var randu = require( '@stdlib/random-base-randu' );
    var sparsearray2iterator = require( '@stdlib/array-to-sparse-iterator' );
    
    function scale( v, i ) {
        return v * (i+1);
    }
    
    // Create an array partially filled with random numbers:
    var arr = new Array( 100 );
    var i;
    for ( i = 0; i < arr.length; i += 2 ) {
        arr[ i ] = randu();
    }
    
    // Create an iterator from the array which scales iterated values:
    var it = sparsearray2iterator( arr, scale );
    
    // Perform manual iteration...
    var v;
    while ( true ) {
        v = it.next();
        if ( v.done ) {
            break;
        }
        console.log( v.value );
    }
