Scala offers a lightweight notation for expressing sequence comprehensions. Comprehensions have the form
for (enumerators) yield e, where
enumerators refers to a semicolon-separated list of enumerators. An enumerator is either a generator which introduces new variables, or it is a filter. A comprehension evaluates the body
e for each binding generated by the enumerators and returns a sequence of these values.
