...one of the most highly
regarded and expertly designed C++ library projects in the

Coding Standards
For a sequence seq
, initial
state initial_state
,
and binary function object or function pointer f
,
fold
returns the result of the repeated application
of binary f
to the result
of the previous f
invocation
(inital_state
if it is
the first call) and each element of seq
.

Description 


A model of Forward Sequence 
Operation's argument 

Any type 
Initial state 


Operation's argument 
fold(seq, initial_state, f);
Return type: Any type
Semantics: Equivalent to f(...
f(f(initial_state,e1),e2) ...eN)
where e1 ...eN
are the consecutive elements of seq
.
Linear, exactly
applications of result_of::size
<Sequence>::valuef
.
