The underlying iterator’s sequence may be infinite.

`var lazy: Lazy`Sequence<PrefixSequence<Base>>

A sequence containing the same elements as this sequence, but on which some operations, such as `map`

and `filter`

, are implemented lazily.

`var underestimated`Count : Int

A value less than or equal to the number of elements in the sequence, calculated nondestructively.

`func drop`Last (Int) -> [Base.Element]

Returns a sequence containing all but the given number of final elements.

`func elements`Equal <OtherSequence>(OtherSequence) -> Bool

Returns a Boolean value indicating whether this sequence and another sequence contain the same elements in the same order.

`func elements`Equal <OtherSequence>(OtherSequence, by: (Base.Element, OtherSequence.Element) -> Bool) -> Bool

Returns a Boolean value indicating whether this sequence and another sequence contain equivalent elements in the same order, using the given predicate as the equivalence test.

`func enumerated() -> Enumerated`Sequence<PrefixSequence<Base>>

Returns a sequence of pairs (*n*, *x*), where *n* represents a consecutive integer starting at zero and *x* represents an element of the sequence.

`func filter((Base`.Element) -> Bool) -> [Base.Element]

Returns an array containing, in order, the elements of the sequence that satisfy the given predicate.

`func first(where: (Base`.Element) -> Bool) -> Base.Element?

Returns the first element of the sequence that satisfies the given predicate.

Returns an array containing the concatenated results of calling the given transformation with each element of this sequence.

`func for`Each ((Base.Element) -> Void)

Calls the given closure on each element in the sequence in the same order as a `for`

-`in`

loop.

`func joined() -> Flatten`Sequence<PrefixSequence<Base>>

Returns the elements of this sequence of sequences, concatenated.

`func joined<Separator>(separator: Separator) -> Joined`Sequence<PrefixSequence<Base>>

Returns the concatenated elements of this sequence of sequences, inserting the given separator between each element.

`func joined(separator: String) -> String`

Returns a new string by concatenating the elements of the sequence, adding the given separator between each element.

`func lexicographically`Precedes <OtherSequence>(OtherSequence) -> Bool

Returns a Boolean value indicating whether the sequence precedes another sequence in a lexicographical (dictionary) ordering, using the less-than operator (`<`

) to compare elements.

`func lexicographically`Precedes <OtherSequence>(OtherSequence, by: (Base.Element, Base.Element) -> Bool) -> Bool

Returns a Boolean value indicating whether the sequence precedes another sequence in a lexicographical (dictionary) ordering, using the given predicate to compare elements.

`func make`Iterator () -> PrefixSequence<Base>.Iterator

Returns an iterator over the elements of this sequence.

`func map<T>((Base`.Element) -> T) -> [T]

`func max() -> Base`.Element?

Returns the maximum element in the sequence.

`func max(by: (Base`.Element, Base.Element) -> Bool) -> Base.Element?

`func sorted() -> [Base`.Element]

Returns the elements of the sequence, sorted.

`func sorted(by: (Base`.Element, Base.Element) -> Bool) -> [Base.Element]

Returns the elements of the sequence, sorted using the given predicate as the comparison between elements.

`func split(max`Splits : Int, omittingEmptySubsequences : Bool, whereSeparator : (Base.Element) -> Bool) -> [ArraySlice<Base.Element>]

Returns the longest possible subsequences of the sequence, in order, that don’t contain elements satisfying the given predicate. Elements that are used to split the sequence are not returned as part of any subsequence.

`func split(separator: Base`.Element, maxSplits : Int, omittingEmptySubsequences : Bool) -> [ArraySlice<Base.Element>]

Returns the longest possible subsequences of the sequence, in order, around elements equal to the given element.

`func starts<Possible`Prefix>( with: PossiblePrefix) -> Bool

`func with`ContiguousStorageIfAvailable <R>((UnsafeBufferPointer<Base.Element>) -> R) -> R?

Call `body(p)`

, where `p`

is a pointer to the collection’s contiguous storage. If no such storage exists, it is first created. If the collection does not support an internal representation in a form of contiguous storage, `body`

is not called and `nil`

is returned.
