Strain

Implement the keep and discard operation on collections. Given a collection and a predicate on the collection's elements, keep returns a new collection containing those elements where the predicate is true, while discard returns a new collection containing those elements where the predicate is false.

For example, given the collection of numbers:

And the predicate:

Then your keep operation should produce:

While your discard operation should produce:

Note that the union of keep and discard is all the elements.

The functions may be called keep and discard, or they may need different names in order to not clash with existing functions or concepts in your language.

Restrictions

Keep your hands off that filter/reject/whatchamacallit functionality provided by your standard library! Solve this one yourself using other basic tools instead.

The Scala exercises assume an SBT project scheme. The exercise solution source should be placed within the exercise directory/src/main/scala. The exercise unit tests can be found within the exercise directory/src/test/scala.

To run the tests simply run the command sbt test in the exercise directory.

For more detailed info about the Scala track see the help page.
