Determine if ValueIterator has one or more values available



tf = hasnext(ValIter) returns logical 1 (true) if ValueIter has one or more values available; otherwise, it returns logical 0 (false).


collapse all

Use the hasnext and getnext functions in a while loop within the reduce function to iteratively get values from the ValueIterator object. For example,

function MeanDistReduceFun(sumLenKey, sumLenIter, outKVStore)
    sumLen = [0 0];
    while hasnext(sumLenIter)
        sumLen = sumLen + getnext(sumLenIter);
    add(outKVStore, 'Mean', sumLen(1)/sumLen(2));

Always call hasnext before getnext to confirm availability of a value. mapreduce returns an error if you call getnext with no remaining values in the ValueIterator object.

Input Arguments

collapse all

Intermediate value iterator, specified as a ValueIterator object. The mapreduce function automatically creates this object during execution. The second input to the reduce function specifies the variable name for the ValueIterator object, which is the variable name to use with the hasnext and getnext functions.

For more information, see ValueIterator.
