Array comprehension in javascript.

Declaratively construct arrays.

comprehend(arrays..., guard_function, function)

Where 'arrays...' is any number of arrays to pull data from.

Both 'guard_function' and 'function' take the elements of each of the arrays as parameters.

The boolean returned from the 'guard_function' determines whether or not to use the data for those elements. 'guard_function' is optional.

The return value of 'function' produces each element in the resulting array.
