): Map<K, List<Boolean>>
inline fun <K> CharArray.groupBy(
    keySelector: (Char) -> K
): Map<K, List<Char>>

Groups elements of the original array by the key returned by the given keySelector function applied to each element and returns a map where each group key is associated with a list of corresponding elements.

The returned map preserves the entry iteration order of the keys produced from the original array.

val byLength = words.groupBy { it.length }

println(byLength.keys) // [1, 3, 2, 4]
println(byLength.values) // [[a], [abc, def], [ab], [abcd]]

val mutableByLength: MutableMap<Int, MutableList<String>> = words.groupByTo(mutableMapOf()) { it.length }
// same content as in byLength map, but the map is mutable
println("mutableByLength == byLength is ${mutableByLength == byLength}") // true

Groups values returned by the valueTransform function applied to each element of the original array by the key returned by the given keySelector function applied to the element and returns a map where each group key is associated with a list of corresponding values.

The returned map preserves the entry iteration order of the keys produced from the original array.
