# 2725. Interval Cancellation

## Description

Given a function fn, an array of arguments args, and an interval time t, return a cancel function cancelFn.

The function fn should be called with args immediately and then called again every t milliseconds until cancelFn is called at cancelT ms.

Example 1:

Input: fn = (x) => x * 2, args = , t = 35, cancelT = 190
Output:
[
{"time": 0, "returned": 8},
{"time": 35, "returned": 8},
{"time": 70, "returned": 8},
{"time": 105, "returned": 8},
{"time": 140, "returned": 8},
{"time": 175, "returned": 8}
]
Explanation:
const cancel = cancellable(x => x * 2, , 35);
setTimeout(cancel, 190);

Every 35ms, fn(4) is called. Until t=190ms, then it is cancelled.
1st fn call is at 0ms. fn(4) returns 8.
2nd fn call is at 35ms. fn(4) returns 8.
3rd fn call is at 70ms. fn(4) returns 8.
4th fn call is at 105ms. fn(4) returns 8.
5th fn call is at 140ms. fn(4) returns 8.
6th fn call is at 175ms. fn(4) returns 8.
Cancelled at 190ms


Example 2:

Input: fn = (x1, x2) => (x1 * x2), args = [2, 5], t = 30, cancelT = 165
Output:
[
{"time": 0, "returned": 10},
{"time": 30, "returned": 10},
{"time": 60, "returned": 10},
{"time": 90, "returned": 10},
{"time": 120, "returned": 10},
{"time": 150, "returned": 10}
]
Explanation:
const cancel = cancellable((x1, x2) => (x1 * x2), [2, 5], 30);
setTimeout(cancel, 165);

Every 30ms, fn(2, 5) is called. Until t=165ms, then it is cancelled.
1st fn call is at 0ms
2nd fn call is at 30ms
3rd fn call is at 60ms
4th fn call is at 90ms
5th fn call is at 120ms
6th fn call is at 150ms
Cancelled at 165ms


Example 3:

Input: fn = (x1, x2, x3) => (x1 + x2 + x3), args = [5, 1, 3], t = 50, cancelT = 180
Output:
[
{"time": 0, "returned": 9},
{"time": 50, "returned": 9},
{"time": 100, "returned": 9},
{"time": 150, "returned": 9}
]
Explanation:
const cancel = cancellable((x1, x2, x3) => (x1 + x2 + x3), [5, 1, 3], 50);
setTimeout(cancel, 180);

Every 50ms, fn(5, 1, 3) is called. Until t=180ms, then it is cancelled.
1st fn call is at 0ms
2nd fn call is at 50ms
3rd fn call is at 100ms
4th fn call is at 150ms
Cancelled at 180ms


Constraints:

• fn is a function
• args is a valid JSON array
• 1 <= args.length <= 10
• 30 <= t <= 100
• 10 <= cancelT <= 500

## Solutions

• function cancellable(fn: Function, args: any[], t: number): Function {
fn(...args);
const time = setInterval(() => fn(...args), t);
return () => clearInterval(time);
}
