parallel
boolean, optional

Examples

animals = {
		cow: "moo",
		pig: "oink",
		cat: "meow"

	// Use every() to iterate over keys in struct. Closure returns true/false.
	allAnimalsAreNoisy = animals.every(function(key) {
		// If the key has a value return true (noisy animal)
		if (animals[arguments.key].len()) {
		return true;
		}
		return false;
	});
	Dump(
		label: "allAnimalsAreNoisy",
		var: allAnimalsAreNoisy
	);
	// Use every() to iterate over keys in struct. Closure returns true/false.
	allAnimalsAreQuiet = animals.every(function(key) {
		// If the key is blank return true (quiet animal)
		if (! animals[arguments.key].len()) {
			return true;
