structReduce

Iterates over every entry of the struct and calls the closure to work on the key value pair of the struct. This function will reduce the struct to a single value and will return the value.

structReduce(struct, function(result, key, value [,struct]){} [, initialVal]) → returns any

structReduce Argument Reference

struct struct
Required

Examples sample code invoking the structReduce function

rainbow = { "Red"="Whero",  "Orange"="Karaka", "Yellow"="Kowhai",  "Green"="Kakariki" }; 
  ui = structReduce(  rainbow, function(previousValue, key, value) 
   { 
 return previousValue & "<dt>#key#</dt><dd>#value#</dd>"; 
  }, 
 "<dl>" 
 ) & "</dl>"; 
 writeDump(rainbow); 
 writeOutput(ui);
