Someone asked a question about Swing on SO so I had to cull old code. The second thing I wrote in Scala was a Scala SwingWorker. I don't know if it's pointless at this point (and maybe that point, too). But I could improve/upgrade it from old Future to new Future.
I was trying to remember whether, when you cull something, you keep it or discard it. Apparently, cull is collect, but a cull is a discard. It's too bad there isn't a collections framework method named cull, perhaps that would somehow work slightly differently from partition. That would be fun. cull would return one set, culls the other.
Update: dictionary example: cull the best passages from the poet's work. These examples were culled from the compiler code base.
