Preject : FuncFilterPattern : FilterPattern : Pattern : AbstractFunction : Object

Filters a source pattern by rejecting particular values.

Description

From superclass: FuncFilterPattern

Arguments:

Examples

(
var a, b;
a = Preject({ arg item; item == 1 }, Pseq(#[1, 2, 3],inf));
x = a.asStream;
9.do({ x.next.postln; });
)

The message reject returns a Preject when passed to a pattern

(
var a, b;
a = Pseq(#[1, 2, 3],inf).reject({ arg item; item == 1 });
a.postln;
x = a.asStream;
9.do({ x.next.postln; });
)
