R/elementwise.R

Defines functions elementwise

Documented in elementwise

#' Apply a function to each element of an lvec
#'
#' @param x an object of type \code{\link{lvec}}.
#' @param fun the function to apply to the \code{lvec}. This function receives
#'   chunks of the lvec (which are regular R-vector) and should return a (R) 
#'   vector of the same length as its input. 
#' @param ... passed on to \code{fun}.
#'
#' @return
#' Returns a \code{link{lvec}} of the same length as the input. The type is 
#' determined by the output of \code{fun}.
#'
#' @examples
#' # Calculate square root of lvec
#' x <- as_lvec(1:10)
#' y <- elementwise(x, sqrt)
#' # of course, this is already implemented
#' sqrt(x)
#'
#' @import lvec 
#' @export
