map

<mathematics>

function.

<programming>

In functional programming, the most common higher-order function over lists. Map applies its first argument to each element of its second argument (a list) and returns the list of results.

	map :: (a -> b) -> [a] -> [b]
	map f []     = []
	map f (x:xs) = f x : map f xs

This can be generalised to types other than lists.
