Removes values for each block that returns true. Returns remove count. (Modifies)
word [word! block!] - Word or block of words to set each time (local)
data [series!] - The series to traverse
body [block!] - Block to evaluate (return TRUE to remove)
The remove-each function is a high performance method of removing specific elements from a series. It is similar to foreach but will remove one or more values depending on the result of the evaluated block.
In this example, remove-each is used to remove all strings from the block:
values: [12 "abc" test 5 "de" 10:30] remove-each value values [string? value] probe values [12 test 5 10:30]
Here, all integer values greater than 11 are removed:
values: [12 "abc" test 5 "de" 10:30] remove-each value values [all [integer? value value > 11]] probe values ["abc" test 5 "de" 10:30]
movies: [ 8:30 "Contact" $4.95 10:15 "Ghostbusters" $3.25 12:45 "Matrix" $4.25 ] foreach [time title price] movies [ print [title "at" time "for" price] if price > $4.00 [print "removed" true] ] Contact at 8:30 for $4.95 removed Ghostbusters at 10:15 for $3.25 Matrix at 12:45 for $4.25 removed
This example also shows that the evaluated block may contain any other expressions as long as the last one returns true for removed values.
Also, notice here the way if is used for its return value.
