[jira] [Commented] (GROOVY-7432) Enhance CharSequence with appropriate Iterable extension methods

JIRA jira@apache.org

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GROOVY-7432?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14587780#comment-14587780 ]

Paul King commented on GROOVY-7432:
-----------------------------------

{quote}
containsAll() accepts a CharSequence[], which means that objects of type String[] need to be converted, otherwise you get a MethodMissingException. Does that seem reasonable?
{quote}
What behavior would you get if you used {{Object[]}} and called {{toString()}} on the items?

> Groovy enables developers to treat {{CharSequence}}s as if they were true sequences. For example, you can use a for loop and the array index operator.
> Some extension methods are missing though. One I was hoping to find was the {{count(Closure)}} method. I think it makes sense to incorporate any {{Iterable}} extension methods into {{CharSequence}} as well.
