Composition of functions in F# is easily achieved by using the >> operator. You can also chain an arbitary amount of functions (represented as a list or sequence) together by folding the list/seq with >>. [More formally: the set of endomorphisms 'a -> 'a forms a monoid with the binary, associative operator ">>" (or "<<") and the neutral element "id".]

This snippet is helpfull in the following cases: 1) After a consolidation operation using the fold function we need to know how many elements have been processed. 2) A consolidation operation needs to use the index of each of the elements processed and we don't want to use the mapi function first. 3) A combination of the above. Since the following snippet just adds a wrapper to the existing Fold function we can repeat the approach for arrays and sequences (including the plinq ones)

An abstraction of the following use case: Given a sequence of dates and max temperatures for each date, extract out the initial dates on which the temp is greater than a given threshold for n consecutive days.

Let's have some fun with higher order functions and instead of folding over a list, fold over the prime factors of a number. It can be optimized further by dividing out real primes instead of numbers of the form 6k+/-1, but it's not embarrassingly slow.

@Samuel - saw your post and thought one part was similar to bit shifting I was playing with yesterday, so rewrote the FromBooleans function using a fold instead of ref cells. Probably not as readable as your version though :)

This snippet is code that solves first Project Euler problem. It finds the sum of all the multiples of 3 or 5 below 1000. Please add other (more efficient, succinct or interesting) solutions to this snippet.

Three ways to split a list in half (but not necessarily in the middle). A forth version added that's very short and should be fast, as we only use List.fold. New champ found.
