PstepNadd pattern that returns combinatoric sums


superclass: PstepNfunc



combines an arbitrary number of patterns by summing (depth first traversal).

when a stream ends it is recreated from its pattern until the top stream ends.

*new(pattern1, pattern2, ... patternN);

// comparing PstepNadd and Pstep3add (test)

(

x = PstepNadd(Pseq([1, 2, 3]), Pseq([10, 20, 30, 40]), Pseq([100, 200, 300])).asStream;

y = Pstep3add(Pseq([1, 2, 3]), Pseq([10, 20, 30, 40]), Pseq([100, 200, 300])).asStream;


50.do({ [x.next, y.next].postln });

)


// pattern return stream until the longest stream ended 

(

x = PstepNadd(

Plazy({ "pattern1.asStream".postln; Pseq([1, 2, 3], 2) }), 

Plazy({ "pattern2.asStream".postln; Pshuf([10, 20, 30, 40]) }), 

Plazy({ "pattern3.asStream".postln; Pseq([100, 200, 300]) }),

Plazy({  Pseries(1, 1, 4) * 0.01 })

).asStream;

150.do({ x.next.postln });

)


// if the last pattern loops it the combinatorics loop there:

x = PstepNadd(Pseq([1, 2, 3]), Pseq([10, 20, 30, 40]), Pseq([100, 200, 300], inf)).asStream;

50.do({ x.next.postln });


// if the first pattern loops, the whole iteration loops as if it was used in a Pn(.., inf):

x = PstepNadd(Pseq([1, 2, 3], inf), Pseq([10, 20, 30, 40]), Pseq([100, 200, 300])).asStream;

y = Pn(PstepNadd(Pseq([1, 2, 3]), Pseq([10, 20, 30, 40]), Pseq([100, 200, 300])), inf).asStream;
