type t
include Ppx_compare_lib.Comparable.S with type t := t
val compare : t -> t -> int
include Ppx_quickcheck_runtime.Quickcheckable.S with type t := t
val quickcheck_generator : t Base_quickcheck.Generator.t
val quickcheck_observer : t Base_quickcheck.Observer.t
val quickcheck_shrinker : t Base_quickcheck.Shrinker.t
val sexp_of_t : t -> Sexplib0.Sexp.t

The invariant is that t is a sequence of well-formed UTF-8 code points.

include Core.Invariant.S with type t := t
val invariant : t -> unit
include Core.Container.S0 with type t := t with type elt := Core.Uchar.t
val mem : t -> Core.Uchar.t -> bool

Checks whether the provided element is there, using equality on elts.

val length : t -> int
val is_empty : t -> bool
val iter : t -> f:( Core.Uchar.t -> unit ) -> unit

iter must allow exceptions raised in f to escape, terminating the iteration cleanly. The same holds for all functions below taking an f.

val fold : t -> init:'accum -> f:( 'accum -> Core.Uchar.t -> 'accum ) -> 'accum

fold t ~init ~f returns f (... f (f (f init e1) e2) e3 ...) en, where e1..en are the elements of t.

val fold_result : t -> init:'accum -> f:( 'accum -> Core.Uchar.t -> ( 'accum, 'e ) Base.Result.t ) -> ( 'accum, 'e ) Base.Result.t

fold_result t ~init ~f is a short-circuiting version of fold that runs in the Result monad. If f returns an Error _, that value is returned without any additional invocations of f.

val fold_until : t -> init:'accum -> f: ( 'accum -> Core.Uchar.t -> ( 'accum, 'final ) Base.Container.Continue_or_stop.t ) -> finish:( 'accum -> 'final ) -> 'final

fold_until t ~init ~f ~finish is a short-circuiting version of fold. If f returns Stop _ the computation ceases and results in that value. If f returns Continue _, the fold will proceed. If f never returns Stop _, the final result is computed by finish.


type maybe_negative =
  | Found_negative of int
  | All_nonnegative of { sum : int }

(** [first_neg_or_sum list] returns the first negative number in [list], if any,
    otherwise returns the sum of the list. *)
let first_neg_or_sum =
  List.fold_until ~init:0
    ~f:(fun sum x ->
      if x < 0
      then Stop (Found_negative x)
      else Continue (sum + x))
    ~finish:(fun sum -> All_nonnegative { sum })

let x = first_neg_or_sum [1; 2; 3; 4; 5]
val x : maybe_negative = All_nonnegative {sum = 15}

let y = first_neg_or_sum [1; 2; -3; 4; 5]
val y : maybe_negative = Found_negative -3
val exists : t -> f:( Core.Uchar.t -> bool ) -> bool

Returns true if and only if there exists an element for which the provided function evaluates to true. This is a short-circuiting operation.

val for_all : t -> f:( Core.Uchar.t -> bool ) -> bool

Returns true if and only if the provided function evaluates to true for all elements. This is a short-circuiting operation.

val count : t -> f:( Core.Uchar.t -> bool ) -> int

Returns the number of elements for which the provided function evaluates to true.

val sum : (module Base.Container.Summable with type t = 'sum) -> t -> f:( Core.Uchar.t -> 'sum ) -> 'sum

Returns the sum of f i for all i in the container.

val find : t -> f:( Core.Uchar.t -> bool ) -> Core.Uchar.t option

Returns as an option the first element for which f evaluates to true.

val find_map : t -> f:( Core.Uchar.t -> 'a option ) -> 'a option

Returns the first evaluation of f that returns Some, and returns None if there is no such element.

val to_list : t -> Core.Uchar.t list
val to_array : t -> Core.Uchar.t array
val min_elt : t -> compare:( Core.Uchar.t -> Core.Uchar.t -> int ) -> Core.Uchar.t option

Returns a min (resp. max) element from the collection using the provided compare function. In case of a tie, the first element encountered while traversing the collection is returned. The implementation uses fold so it has the same complexity as fold. Returns None iff the collection is empty.

val max_elt : t -> compare:( Core.Uchar.t -> Core.Uchar.t -> int ) -> Core.Uchar.t option
include Core.Stringable.S with type t := t
val of_string : string -> t
val to_string : t -> string
val width : t -> int

width t approximates the displayed width of t.

We incorrectly assume that every code point has the same width. This is better than String.length for many code points, but doesn't work for double-width characters or combining diacritics.

val bytes : t -> int

bytes t is the number of bytes in the UTF-8 encoding of t.

val chunks_of : t -> width:int -> prefer_split_on_spaces:bool -> t list

chunks_of t ~width splits t into chunks no wider than width characters s.t.

t = t |> chunks_of ~width |> concat

. chunks_of always returns at least one chunk, which may be empty.

If prefer_split_on_spaces = true and such a space exists, t will be split on the last U+020 SPACE before the chunk becomes too wide. Otherwise, the split happens exactly at width characters.

val of_uchar_list : Core.Uchar.t list -> t
val concat : ?sep:t -> t list -> t
val iteri : t -> f:( int -> Core.Uchar.t -> unit ) -> unit

iteri t ~f calls f index uchar for every uchar in t. index counts characters, not bytes.

val split : t -> on:char -> t list

split t ~on returns the substrings between and not including occurrences of on. on must be an ASCII char (in range '\000' to '\127').
