This would be the case in the luc function if the fourth rule were moved ahead of the first rule. In this case, none of the other rules would ever be matched, because the first rule would match any value of x. You can add a when guard (as in the first rule in the example) to give precise control about when a rule fires. A when guard is composed of the keyword when followed by a Boolean expression. Once the rule is matched, the when clause is evaluated, and the rule will fire only if the expression evaluates to true.

NET ToString method, which is available for every type, to output values in a human-readable way. " "c:\projects" [|98uy; 121uy; 116uy; 101uy; 115uy; 98uy; 121uy; 116uy; 101uy; 115uy; 98uy; 121uy; 116uy; 101uy; 115uy|] -1y 4095un 18UL Functions In F#, functions are defined using the keyword fun.

To create more interesting collections, you can also specify a step size for incrementing numbers (note that characters do not support this type of list comprehension). ). The next example shows a list containing multiples of 3, followed by a list that counts backward from 9 to 0: // create some list comprehensions let multiplesOfThree = [ 0 .. 3 .. 30 ] let revNumericSeq = [ 9 .. -1 .. 0 ] // print them printfn "%A" multiplesOfThree printfn "%A" revNumericSeq The results of this example are as follows: [0; 3; 6; 9; 12; 15; 18; 21; 24; 27; 30] [9; 8; 7; 6; 5; 4; 3; 2; 1; 0] List comprehensions also allow loops to create a collection from another collection.
