represent a binary operation on a function
Inherits from: AbstractFunction : Object

Description

Operating on functions instead of numbers, what results is not a result of the calculation, but a structure that represents that calculation.

Class Methods

Inherited class methods

Undocumented class methods

*new (selector, a, b, adverb)

Instance Methods

-value ( ... args)

Executes each of the operand functions and then performs the selector on the result.

-valueArray (args)

the same as -value

Examples

// example
a = 5 + 7; // result is 12.
a = { b } + 7; // result is  a BinaryOpFunction
b = 5;
a.value; // now it is evaluated, and the result is calculated
b = 8;
a.value; // again, with a different value.
// sound example
(
var a = { 19.rand };
var b = { [5, 8, 9].choose };
var c = a + b;
fork {
    15.do {
        (instrument: \default, note: [c.value, a.value]).play;
        0.3.wait;
    }
}
