Accumulate recursive folds across a list

accumulate applies a function recursively over a list from the left, while accumulate_right applies the function from the right. Unlike reduce both functions keep the intermediate results.

Usage
accumulate(.x, .f, ..., .init)

accumulate_right(.x, .f, ..., .init)

Arguments
.x

A list or atomic vector.

.f

A two-argument function.

...

Additional arguments passed on to .f.

.init

If supplied, will be used as the first value to start the accumulation, rather than using x[[1]]. This is useful if you want to ensure that reduce returns the correct value when .x is is_empty().

Examples
# NOT RUN {
1:3 %>% accumulate(`+`)
1:10 %>% accumulate_right(`*`)

# From Haskell's scanl documentation
1:10 %>% accumulate(max, .init = 5)

# Simulating stochastic processes with drift
# }
# NOT RUN {
library(dplyr)
library(ggplot2)

rerun(5, rnorm(100)) %>%
  set_names(paste0("sim", 1:5)) %>%
  map(~ accumulate(., ~ .05 + .x + .y)) %>%
  map_df(~ data_frame(value = .x, step = 1:100), .id = "simulation") %>%
  ggplot(aes(x = step, y = value)) +
    geom_line(aes(color = simulation)) +
    ggtitle("Simulations of a random walk with drift")
