Hi, I have a list like this
["blah", "12", "blaaa", "hello", "13"....]
Basically, some elements are numbers and others are normal strings. The list is always going to start with alphabetical strings.
What I want to do is, if a number precedes a string, join them both. Otherwise, keep the elements as it is.
For the example above, I need the output to be:
["blah12", "blaaa", "hello13"....]
I looked at
chunk_while on the Enum protocol, but not really sure if it can serve this purpose. While I can do manual Enum.map along with parsing each element separately while dropping and reinserting items, I’m looking for a more elegant way. I’m pretty positive there is some API I can use either on the List or Enum to achieve my result.
Can someone throw some insight please! Thank you and will really appreciate your help!
