These functions work exactly the same as purrr::map2() and its variants, but allow you to map in parallel. Note that "parallel" as described in purrr is just saying that you are working with multiple inputs, and parallel in this case means that you can work on multiple inputs and process them all in parallel as well.

## Arguments

.x Vectors of the same length. A vector of length 1 will be recycled. Vectors of the same length. A vector of length 1 will be recycled. A function, formula, or vector (not necessarily atomic). If a function, it is used as is. If a formula, e.g. ~ .x + 2, it is converted to a function. There are three ways to refer to the arguments: For a single argument function, use . For a two argument function, use .x and .y For more arguments, use ..1, ..2, ..3 etc This syntax allows you to create very compact anonymous functions. If character vector, numeric vector, or list, it is converted to an extractor function. Character vectors index by name and numeric vectors index by position; use a list to index by position and name at different levels. If a component is not present, the value of .default will be returned. Additional arguments passed on to the mapped function. The future specific options to use with the workers. This must be the result from a call to furrr_options(). The environment to look for globals required by .x and .... Globals required by .f are looked up in the function environment of .f. A single logical. Should a progress bar be displayed? Only works with multisession, multicore, and multiprocess futures. Note that if a multicore/multisession future falls back to sequential, then a progress bar will not be displayed. Warning: The .progress argument will be deprecated and removed in a future version of furrr in favor of using the more robust progressr package. Either a string or NULL. If a string, the output will contain a variable with that name, storing either the name (if .x is named) or the index (if .x is unnamed) of the input. If NULL, the default, no variable will be created. Only applies to _dfr variant. A list of vectors, such as a data frame. The length of .l determines the number of arguments that .f will be called with. List names will be used if present.

## Value

An atomic vector, list, or data frame, depending on the suffix. Atomic vectors and lists will be named if .x or the first element of .l is named.

If all input is length 0, the output will be length 0. If any input is length 1, it will be recycled to the length of the longest.

## Examples

plan(multisession, workers = 2)

x <- list(1, 10, 100)
y <- list(1, 2, 3)
z <- list(5, 50, 500)
