# as_iterator: Traverse a Python iterator or generator

## Description

Traverse a Python iterator or generator

## Usage

as_iterator(x)iterate(it, f = base::identity, simplify = TRUE)

iter_next(it, completed = NULL)

## Value

For `iterate()`

, A list or vector containing the results of calling
`f`

on each item in `x`

(invisibly); For `iter_next()`

, the next
value in the iteration (or the sentinel `completed`

value if the iteration
is complete).

## Arguments

- x
Python iterator or iterable

- it
Python iterator or generator

- f
Function to apply to each item. By default applies the
`identity`

function which just reflects back the value of the item.

- simplify
Should the result be simplified to a vector if possible?

- completed
Sentinel value to return from `iter_next()`

if the iteration
completes (defaults to `NULL`

but can be any R value you specify).

## Details

Simplification is only attempted all elements are length 1 vectors
of type "character", "complex", "double", "integer", or "logical".
