intersect(aStream :: ReadableStream, bStream :: ReadableStream) -> ReadableStream

Intersect two streams.

intersect.using({ toKey, cmp, merge }) -> function intersect(a, b) -> ReadableStream

Customise the behaviour of intersect. Returns a customised intersect function.

toKey :: function(item) -> key

the key function is applied to the items before comparison. it defaults to the identity function (a no-op).

cmp :: function(a, b) -> Number

a comparison function. return -1 for a < b, 1 for a > b and 0 for a = b. the default comparator considers values equal if they aren't less than or greater than each other.

merge :: function(a, b) -> item

the merge function is called with every equivalent pair of input items, and its return value is output on the intersection stream. if it returns undefined, nothing will be output. if it returns null, the intersection stream ends.
