Generic Instance Method


Subscribes to three additional publishers and publishes a tuple upon receiving output from any of the publishers.


func combineLatest<P, Q, R>(_ publisher1: P, _ publisher2: Q, _ publisher3: R) -> Publishers.CombineLatest4<Publishers.Comparison<Upstream>, P, Q, R> where P : Publisher, Q : Publisher, R : Publisher, Self.Failure == P.Failure, P.Failure == Q.Failure, Q.Failure == R.Failure



A second publisher to combine with this one.


A third publisher to combine with this one.


A fourth publisher to combine with this one.

Return Value

A publisher that receives and combines elements from this publisher and three other publishers.


The combined publisher passes through any requests to all upstream publishers. However, it still obeys the demand-fulfilling rule of only sending the request amount downstream. If the demand isn’t unlimited, it drops values from upstream publishers. It implements this by using a buffer size of 1 for each upstream, and holds the most recent value in each buffer. All upstream publishers need to finish for this publisher to finish. If an upstream publisher never publishes a value, this publisher neither produces any elements nor signals that publishing has completed. If any of the combined publishers terminates with a failure, this publisher also fails.
