inline fun <TItem> Iterable<TItem>.itemsToString(itemsType: String = "items", separator: String = ", ", itemLength: Int = 30, totalLength: Int = 200, itemToString: (TItem) -> String = { item -> item.toShortString() }): String(source)

Formats a collection of TItems to a readable string like "3 colors: red, yellow, green".

Each item is converted by itemToString to a string representation whose length is restricted by itemLength and the output length by totalLength. A separator (default = ", ") is placed between the string representation.



a string describing the collection items, such as "colors", "employees" etc.; default = "items"


a lambda converting each item to its string representation.
