inline fun <S, T : S> Sequence<T>.reduce(
    operation: (acc: S, T) -> S
): S

Accumulates value starting with the first element and applying operation from left to right to current accumulator value and each element.

Throws an exception if this sequence is empty. If the sequence can be empty in an expected way, please use reduceOrNull instead. It returns null when its receiver is empty.

fun main(args: Array<String>) {
//sampleStart
val strings = listOf("a", "b", "c", "d")
println(strings.reduce { acc, string -> acc + string }) // abcd
println(strings.reduceIndexed { index, acc, string -> acc + string + index }) // ab1c2d3

// emptyList<Int>().reduce { _, _ -> 0 } //  will fail
//sampleEnd
}

Parameters

operation -

function that takes current accumulator value and an element, and calculates the next accumulator value.

The operation is terminal.
