[CLJ-1197] Allow fold to parallelize over lazy sequences Created: 10/Apr/13 Updated: 27/Sep/13 Resolved: 27/Sep/13
This patch implements foldable-seq, which allows fold to parallelize over a lazy sequence. See this conversation on the Clojure mailing list:
The patch is code only, sadly. No tests because I've not been able to find any existing tests for fold:
