# Partition a sequence until a predicate is satiated

This function is given a partition predicate and a sequence. Until the predicate returns false, a list will be filled with elements. When it is, both the list and the remainder of the sequence will be returned. Note that this example preserves the laziness of the unchecked sequence elements.

 ``` 1: 2: 3: 4: 5: 6: 7: 8: 9: 10: 11: 12: 13: 14: 15: 16: 17: 18: 19: 20: 21: 22: 23: 24: 25: 26: 27: 28: 29: 30: 31: 32: 33: 34: 35: 36: 37: 38: 39: 40: 41: 42: 43: 44: 45: 46: 47: 48: 49: 50: 51: 52: 53: 54: 55: 56: 57: 58: 59: 60: 61: 62: 63: 64: 65: 66: 67: 68: 69: 70: 71: 72: 73: 74: 75: 76: 77: 78: 79: 80: 81: 82: 83: 84: 85: 86: 87: 88: 89: 90: 91: 92: ``` ``````module Seq = /// Takes elements into a sublist until the predicate returns false (exclusive) let partitionWhile (func : _ -> bool) (sequence : _ seq) : _ list * _ seq = let en = sequence.GetEnumerator () let wasGood = ref true let sublist = [ while !wasGood && en.MoveNext() do if func en.Current then yield en.Current else wasGood := false ] let remainder = seq { if not !wasGood then yield en.Current while en.MoveNext() do yield en.Current } sublist, remainder ///Takes elements into a sublist until the predicate returns true (exclusive) let partitionUntil (func : _ -> bool) (sequence : _ seq) : _ list * _ seq = let en = sequence.GetEnumerator () let satisfied = ref false let sublist = [ while not !satisfied && en.MoveNext() do if not (func en.Current) then yield en.Current else satisfied := true ] let remainder = seq { if !satisfied then yield en.Current while en.MoveNext() do yield en.Current } sublist, remainder ///Takes elements into a sublist until the predicate returns true (inclusive) let partitionUntilAfter (func : _ -> bool) (sequence : _ seq) : _ list * _ seq = let en = sequence.GetEnumerator () let satisfied = ref false let sublist = [ while not !satisfied && en.MoveNext() do if func en.Current then satisfied := true yield en.Current ] let remainder = seq { while en.MoveNext() do yield en.Current } sublist, remainder [] let ``Seq.partitionWhile should return a proper subset and remainder`` () = let testSeq = seq { for i in 1 .. 6 do yield i } let sub, remainder = testSeq |> Seq.partitionWhile (fun x -> x <= 3) Assert.Equal( [1; 2; 3], sub ) Assert.Equal( [4; 5; 6], remainder |> Seq.toList ) [] let ``Seq.partitionWhile should return an empty list and remainder when give an empty sequence`` () = let testSeq = Seq.empty let sub, remainder = testSeq |> Seq.partitionWhile (fun x -> x <= 3) Assert.Empty sub Assert.Empty remainder [] let ``Seq.partitionUntil should return a proper subset and remainder`` = let testSeq = seq { for i in 1 .. 6 do yield i } let sub, remainder = testSeq |> Seq.partitionUntil (fun x -> x > 3) Assert.Equal( [1; 2; 3], sub ) Assert.Equal( [4; 5; 6], remainder |> Seq.toList ) [] let ``Seq.partitionUntil should return an empty list and remainder when give an empty sequence`` () = let testSeq = Seq.empty let sub, remainder = testSeq |> Seq.partitionUntil (fun x -> x > 3) Assert.Empty sub Assert.Empty remainder [] let ``Seq.partitionUntilAfter should return a proper subset and remainder`` () = let testSeq = seq { for i in 1 .. 6 do yield i } let sub, remainder = testSeq |> Seq.partitionUntilAfter (fun x -> x > 2) Assert.Equal( [1; 2; 3], sub ) Assert.Equal( [4; 5; 6], remainder |> Seq.toList ) [] let ``Seq.partitionUntilAfter should return an empty list and remainder when give an empty sequence`` () = let testSeq = Seq.empty let sub, remainder = testSeq |> Seq.partitionUntilAfter (fun x -> x > 2) Assert.Empty sub Assert.Empty remainder ``````
