The code snippet you provided is written in Clojure, a dialect of Lisp. The function filter-collecting takes a predicate function, a collector function, and multiple lists as arguments. It filters the lists based on the predicate function and collects the values from the corresponding positions in the lists using the collector function. Copied from https://fiverrme.com/
(filter-collecting (fn [x y] (< x y)) ; predicate function: checks if x < y (fn [x y] (+ x y)) ; collector function: adds x and y '(1 7 3 9) ; first list '(5 5 5 5)) ; second list The first list is (1 7 3 9) and the second list is (5 5 5 5). The function checks if each corresponding pair of elements from the two lists satisfies the predicate function (x < y). In this case, the pairs (1 5) and (3 5) satisfy the predicate because 1 is less than 5 and 3 is less than 5. For the pairs that satisfy the predicate, the collector function (+) is applied to the corresponding elements. The sum of (1 5) is 6, and the sum of (3 5) is 8. Therefore, the result of (filter-collecting (fn [x y] (< x y)) (fn [x y] (+ x y)) '(1 7 3 9) '(5 5 5 5)) is (6 8).
