accumulate operation, which, given a collection and an operation to perform on each element of the collection, returns a new collection containing the result of applying that operation to each element of the input collection.
Given the collection of numbers:
- 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
And the operation:
- square a number (
x => x * x)
Your code should be able to produce the collection of squares:
- 1, 4, 9, 16, 25

Keep your hands off that collect/map/fmap/whatchamacallit functionality provided by your standard library! Solve this one yourself using other basic tools instead.
Lisp specific: it's perfectly fine to use
MAPCAR or the equivalent,
as this is idiomatic Lisp, not a library function.
The tests use the Minitest testing framework. To install it run the command:
gem install minitest
