seqa sequence

Word description
Combines successive elements of the sequence using a binary operation, and outputs the original sequence of all results.

On the first iteration, the two inputs to the quotation are identity and the first element of the input sequence. On successive iterations, the first input is the result of the previous iteration, and the second input is the next element of the input sequence.

When given the empty sequence, outputs the same empty sequence.

Throws an error if the sequence is immutable, or the sequence cannot hold elements of the type output by quot.
