min assembled from the following types:
Returns the smallest of the arguments, as determined by cmp semantics.
my = 42;min= 0 # read as: $foo decreases to 0
multi method min()multi method min()multi sub min(+args, :!)multi sub min(+args)
Coerces the invocant to Iterable and returns the numerically smallest element; in the case of
Hashes, it returns the
Pair with the lowest value.
If a Callable positional argument is provided, each value is passed into the filter, and its return value is compared instead of the original value. The original value is still the one returned from
sub form, the invocant is passed as an argument and a comparison
Callable can be specified with the named argument
say (1,7,3).min(); # OUTPUT:«1␤»say (1,7,3).min(); # OUTPUT:«7␤»say min(1,7,3); # OUTPUT: «1␤»say min(1,7,3,:by( )); # OUTPUT: «7␤»min( %(a => 3, b=> 7 ) ).say ; # OUTPUT: «a => 3␤»
method min(Supply: = :<cmp> --> Supply)
Creates a supply that only emits values from the given supply if they are smaller than any value seen before. In other words, from a continuously descending supply it will emit all the values. From a continuously ascending supply it will only emit the first value. The optional parameter specifies the comparator, just as with Any.min.
Returns the start point of the range.
say (1..5).min; # OUTPUT: «1␤»say (1^..^5).min; # OUTPUT: «1␤»
