The functions in this module return other functions, namely iterators. It also contains utility functions for functional programming.


local p = {}

function p.identity(...)
	return ...
end

function p.memoize(fn)
	local cache = {}
	return function(...)
		local key = mw.dumpObject({...})
		if not cache[key] then
			cache[key] = fn(...)
		end
		return cache[key]
	end
end

function p.negate(fn)
	return function(...)
		return not fn(...)
	end
end

function p.noop() 
	return nil
end

function p.peek(tbl)
	mw.logObject(tbl)
	return tbl

	local state = {...}
