»coalescelist Function

coalescelist takes any number of list arguments and returns the first one that isn't empty.

»Examples

> coalescelist(["a", "b"], ["c", "d"])
[
  "a",
  "b",
]
> coalescelist([], ["c", "d"])
[
  "c",
  "d",
]
> coalescelist(["a", "b"], ["c", "d"])[  "a",  "b",]> coalescelist([], ["c", "d"])[  "c",  "d",]

To perform the coalescelist operation with a list of lists, use the ... symbol to expand the outer list as arguments:

> coalescelist([[], ["c", "d"]]...)
[
  "c",
  "d",
]
> coalescelist([[], ["c", "d"]]...)[  "c",  "d",]
