reduce method

Future<T> reduce (T combine(T previous, T element))

Combines a sequence of values by repeatedly applying combine.

Similar to Iterable.reduce, this function maintains a value, starting with the first element of the stream and updated for each further element of this stream. For each element after the first, the value is updated to the result of calling combine with the previous value and the element.

When this stream is done, the returned future is completed with the value at that time.

If the stream is empty, the returned future is completed with an error. If this stream emits an error, or the call to combine throws, the returned future is completed with that error, and processing is stopped.


Future<T> reduce(T combine(T previous, T element)) {
  _Future<T> result = new _Future<T>();
  bool seenFirst = false;
  T value;
  StreamSubscription subscription;
  subscription = this.listen(
      (T element) {
        if (seenFirst) {
          _runUserCode(() => combine(value, element), (T newValue) {
            value = newValue;
          }, _cancelAndErrorClosure(subscription, result));
        } else {
          value = element;
          seenFirst = true;
      onError: result._completeError,
      onDone: () {
        if (!seenFirst) {
          try {
            // Throw and recatch, instead of just doing
            //  _completeWithErrorCallback, e, theError, StackTrace.current),
            // to ensure that the stackTrace is set on the error.
            throw IterableElementError.noElement();
          } catch (e, s) {
            _completeWithErrorCallback(result, e, s);
        } else {
      cancelOnError: true);
  return result;
