Crate collect_slice [] [src]

Collect an iterator into a slice.

Rust comes with the Iterator::collect method for collecting an iterator's items into a heap-allocated Vec or any other type that implements FromIterator, but there's no way to collect items into a stack-allocated array without manually looping over the iterator. This crates provides an alternative with collect_slice methods that collect an iterator's items into a mutable slice (of a stack-allocated array or otherwise.)

The trait is automatically implemented for any type that implements Iterator.


use collect_slice::CollectSlice;

let mut orig = [0; 8];
(0..8).map(|i| i * 2).collect_slice_checked(&mut orig[..]);
assert_eq!(orig, [0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14]);

let mut buf = [42; 8];
    .map(|&x| x + 10)
    .collect_slice_checked(&mut buf[..]);
assert_eq!(buf, [10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24]);


This crate can be used through cargo by adding it as a dependency in Cargo.toml:

collect_slice = "^1.2.0"

and importing it in the crate root:

extern crate collect_slice;

The provided methods can then be used by importing the trait within individual modules:

use collect_slice::CollectSlice;



An iterator that can collect into a slice.
