Enumerator::Chain is a subclass of Enumerator, which represents a chain of enumerables that works as a single enumerator.

This type of objects can be created by Enumerable#chain and Enumerator#+.

Enumerator::Chain.new(*enums) → enum

Generates a new enumerator object that iterates over the elements of given enumerable objects in sequence.

e = Enumerator::Chain.new(1..3, [4, 5])
e.to_a #=> [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
e.size #=> 5
static VALUE
enum_chain_initialize(VALUE obj, VALUE enums)
{
    struct enum_chain *ptr;

    rb_check_frozen(obj);
    TypedData_Get_Struct(obj, struct enum_chain, &enum_chain_data_type, ptr);

    if (!ptr) rb_raise(rb_eArgError, "unallocated chain");

    ptr->enums = rb_obj_freeze(enums);
    ptr->pos = -1;

    return obj;
}
Instance Public methods
obj.each(*args) { |...| ... } → obj
obj.each(*args) → enumerator

Iterates over the elements of the first enumerable by calling the “each” method on it with the given arguments, then proceeds to the following enumerables in sequence until all of the enumerables are exhausted.

If no block is given, returns an enumerator.

static VALUE
enum_chain_each(int argc, VALUE *argv, VALUE obj)
{
    VALUE enums, block;
    struct enum_chain *objptr;
    long i;

    RETURN_SIZED_ENUMERATOR(obj, argc, argv, argc > 0 ? enum_chain_enum_no_size : enum_chain_enum_size);

    objptr = enum_chain_ptr(obj);
    enums = objptr->enums;
    block = rb_block_proc();


    for (i = 0; i < RARRAY_LEN(enums); i++) {
        objptr->pos = i;
        rb_block_call(RARRAY_AREF(enums, i), id_each, argc, argv, enum_chain_yield_block, block);
    }

    return obj;
}
obj.inspect → string

Returns a printable version of the enumerator chain.

static VALUE
enum_chain_inspect(VALUE obj)
{
    return rb_exec_recursive(inspect_enum_chain, obj, 0);
}
obj.rewind → obj

Rewinds the enumerator chain by calling the “rewind” method on each enumerable in reverse order. Each call is performed only if the enumerable responds to the method.

static VALUE
enum_chain_rewind(VALUE obj)
{
    struct enum_chain *objptr = enum_chain_ptr(obj);
    VALUE enums = objptr->enums;
    long i;

    for (i = objptr->pos; 0 <= i && i < RARRAY_LEN(enums); objptr->pos = --i) {
        rb_check_funcall(RARRAY_AREF(enums, i), id_rewind, 0, 0);
    }

    return obj;
}
obj.size → int, Float::INFINITY or nil

Returns the total size of the enumerator chain calculated by summing up the size of each enumerable in the chain. If any of the enumerables reports its size as nil or Float::INFINITY, that value is returned as the total size.

static VALUE
enum_chain_size(VALUE obj)
{
    return enum_chain_total_size(enum_chain_ptr(obj)->enums);
}
