Merge

Merge[{assoc1,assoc2,},f]

merges the associations associ, using the function f to combine values with the same key.

Merge[{key1val1,key2val2,},f]

gives an association in which values corresponding to identical keys are combined using f.

Merge[f]

represents an operator form of Merge that can be applied to an expression.

Details

  • Merge can operate on any combination of associations and lists of rules.
  • In Merge[expr,f], the function f is applied to lists of values that share the same key.
  • Merge[f][expr] is equivalent to Merge[expr,f].
