Seq.forall<'T> Function (F#)

Tests if all elements of the sequence satisfy the given predicate.

Namespace/Module Path: Microsoft.FSharp.Collections.Seq

Assembly: FSharp.Core (in FSharp.Core.dll)

// Signature:
Seq.forall : ('T -> bool) -> seq<'T> -> bool

// Usage:
Seq.forall predicate source


Type: 'T -> bool

A function to test an element of the input sequence.


Type: seq<'T>

The input sequence.




Thrown when the input sequence is null.

The predicate is applied to the elements of the input sequence. If any application returns false then the overall result is false and no further elements are tested. Otherwise, returns true.

This function is named ForAll in compiled assemblies. If you are accessing the function from a .NET language other than F#, or through reflection, use this name.

The following code shows how to use Seq.forall.

// This function can be used on any sequence, so the same function 
// works with both lists and arrays. 
let allPositive coll = Seq.forall (fun elem -> elem > 0) coll
printfn "%A" (allPositive [| 0; 1; 2; 3 |])
printfn "%A" (allPositive [ 1; 2; 3 ])
