Java and Rust have gone the same route. collect is a terminal operation creating a data structure given a potentially infinite, lazily evaluated, stream. Rust uses iter for creating a stream from a data structure, Java uses stream or parallelstream. Java's parallelstream seems to be missing from Rust, but there is Rayon to provide a version. D's std.parallelism does something of this, but it needs more work to provide the tree-structured as well as scatter–gather internal parallelism models. -- Russel. ============================================================================= Dr Russel Winder t: +44 20 7585 2200 voip: sip:russel.win...@ekiga.net 41 Buckmaster Road m: +44 7770 465 077 xmpp: rus...@winder.org.uk London SW11 1EN, UK w: www.russel.org.uk skype: russel_winder
