We believe in a future in which the web is a preferred environment for numerical computation. To help realize this future, we've built stdlib. stdlib is a standard library, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computation, written in JavaScript (and C) for execution in browsers and in Node.js.

The library is fully decomposable, being architected in such a way that you can swap out and mix and match APIs and functionality to cater to your exact preferences and use cases.

When you use stdlib, you can be absolutely certain that you are using the most thorough, rigorous, well-written, studied, documented, tested, measured, and high-quality code out there.

To join us in bringing numerical computing to the web, get started by checking us out on GitHub, and please consider financially supporting stdlib. We greatly appreciate your continued support!

# iterMap2

Create an iterator which invokes a binary function accepting numeric arguments for each iterated value.

## Installation

npm install @stdlib/math-iter-tools-map2

## Usage

var iterMap2 = require( '@stdlib/math-iter-tools-map2' );

#### iterMap2( iter0, iter1, fcn[, options] )

Returns an iterator which invokes a binary function accepting numeric arguments for each iterated value.

var array2iterator = require( '@stdlib/array-to-iterator' );
var copysign = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-copysign' );

var it1 = array2iterator( [ 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0 ] );
var it2 = array2iterator( [ 1.0, -1.0, -1.0, 1.0 ] );

var it = iterMap2( it1, it2, copysign );
// returns <Object>

var r = it.next().value;
// returns 1.0

r = it.next().value;
// returns -2.0

r = it.next().value;
// returns -3.0

// ...

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.

The invoked function is provided two arguments:

• x: iterated value from first input iterator.
• y: iterated value from second input iterator.
var array2iterator = require( '@stdlib/array-to-iterator' );

function fcn( x, y ) {
return x + y + 10;
}

var it1 = array2iterator( [ 1, 2, 3, 4 ] );
var it2 = array2iterator( [ 1, 2, 3, 4 ] );

var it = iterMap2( it1, it2, fcn );
// returns <Object>

var r = it.next().value;
// returns 12

r = it.next().value;
// returns 14

r = it.next().value;
// returns 16

// ...

The function supports the following options:

• invalid: return value when an input iterator yields a non-numeric value. Default: NaN.

By default, the function returns an iterator which returns NaN when an input iterator yields a non-numeric value. To specify a different return value, set the invalid option.

var array2iterator = require( '@stdlib/array-to-iterator' );
var copysign = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-copysign' );

var it1 = array2iterator( [ '1.0', '2.0', '3.0' ] );
var it2 = array2iterator( [ 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 ] );

var opts = {
'invalid': null
};
var it = iterMap2( it1, it2, copysign, opts );
// returns <Object>

var v = it.next().value;
// returns null

v = it.next().value;
// returns null

// ...

If provided a numeric value as an iterator argument, the value is broadcast as an infinite iterator which always returns the provided value.

var array2iterator = require( '@stdlib/array-to-iterator' );
var copysign = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-copysign' );

var it1 = array2iterator( [ 1.0, 2.0 ] );

var it = iterMap2( it1, -4.0, copysign );
// returns <Object>

var v = it.next().value;
// returns -1.0

v = it.next().value;
// returns -2.0

var bool = it.next().done;
// returns true

## Notes

• If an iterated value is non-numeric (including NaN), the returned iterator returns NaN. If non-numeric iterated values are possible, you are advised to provide an iterator which type checks and handles non-numeric values accordingly.
• The length of the returned iterator is equal to the length of the shortest provided iterator. In other words, the returned iterator ends once one of the provided iterators ends.
• If an environment supports Symbol.iterator and a provided iterator is iterable, the returned iterator is iterable.

## Examples

var randu = require( '@stdlib/random-iter-randu' );
var uniform = require( '@stdlib/random-iter-uniform' );
var copysign = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-copysign' );
var iterMap2 = require( '@stdlib/math-iter-tools-map2' );

// Create seeded iterators for generating pseudorandom numbers:
var rand1 = randu({
'seed': 1234,
'iter': 10
});

var rand2 = uniform( -1.0, 1.0, {
'seed': 1234,
'iter': 10
});

// Create an iterator which consumes the pseudorandom number iterators:
var it = iterMap2( rand1, rand2, copysign );

// Perform manual iteration...
var r;
while ( true ) {
r = it.next();
if ( r.done ) {
break;
}
console.log( r.value );
}

## Notice

This package is part of stdlib, a standard library for JavaScript and Node.js, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computing. The library provides a collection of robust, high performance libraries for mathematics, statistics, streams, utilities, and more.
