    iterUnique

    NPM version Build Status Coverage Status

    Create an iterator which returns unique values.

    Installation

    npm install @stdlib/iter-unique

    Usage

    var iterUnique = require( '@stdlib/iter-unique' );

    iterUnique( iterator )

    Returns an iterator which returns unique values.

    var array2iterator = require( '@stdlib/array-to-iterator' );
    
    var it = iterUnique( array2iterator( [ 2, 1, 1, 2, 4, 3, 4, 3 ] ) );
    // returns <Object>
    
    var v = it.next().value;
    // returns 2
    
    v = it.next().value;
    // returns 1
    
    v = it.next().value;
    // returns 4
    
    v = it.next().value;
    // returns 3
    
    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.

    Notes

    • Value "uniqueness" is determined according to strict equality.
    • A returned iterator internally buffers unique values and, thus, has O(N) memory requirements.
    • If an environment supports Symbol.iterator and a provided iterator is iterable, the returned iterator is iterable.

    Examples

    var discreteUniform = require( '@stdlib/random-iter-discrete-uniform' );
    var iterUnique = require( '@stdlib/iter-unique' );
    
    // Create a seeded iterator which can generate 1000 pseudorandom numbers:
    var rand = discreteUniform( 1, 10, {
        'seed': 1234,
        'iter': 1000
    });
    
    // Create an iterator which returns unique values:
    var it = iterUnique( rand );
    
    // Perform manual iteration...
    var v;
    while ( true ) {
        v = it.next();
        if ( v.done ) {
            break;
        }
        console.log( v.value );
    }
