Ticket #5686 (closed enhancement: wontfix)
$.map is not consistent with $#each, $#map and $.each
|Reported by:||robertsosinski||Owned by:|
I notice that with $.map, both the function parameter order and "this" reassignment is inconsistent with other enumerable methods, such as $#each, $#map and $.each. Attached is a script showing how this can make for easy mistakes.
I think it would make more sense to have the function passed to $.map take (index, element) instead of (element, index), and also reassign "this" to the current element worked with. Unless, there are specific technical reasons for the API to work in its current fashion.
