This module exports convenience functions for use with Data::Stream::Bulk.


Sub::Exporter is used to create the "import" routine, and all of its aliasing/currying goodness is of course supported.
Creates a new Data::Stream::Bulk::Nil object.

Takes no arguments.

bulk @items
Creates a new Data::Stream::Bulk::Array wrapping @items.
cat @streams
Concatenate several streams together.

Returns "nil" if no arguments are provided.

filter { ... } $stream
Calls "filter" on $stream with the provided filter.
unique $stream
Filter the stream to remove duplicates.

Note that memory use may potentially scale to O(k) where k is the number of distinct items, because this is implemented in terms of a seen hash.

In the future this will be optimized to be iterative for sorted streams.

References are keyed by their refaddr (see ``id'' in Hash::Util::FieldHash).
