Upcasterthat eases the common process of upcasting one intermediate representation to another representation by applying a simple mapping function to the input stream of intermediate representations.

Apply this upcaster to a stream of
intermediateRepresentationsand return the altered stream.
To upcast an object an upcaster should apply a mapping function to the input stream (
Stream.map(java.util.function.Function)). To remove an object from the stream the upcaster should filter the
input stream (
Stream.filter(java.util.function.Predicate)). To split an input object into more than one
In some cases the upcasting result of an Upcaster may depend on more than one input object. In that case an Upcaster may store state in the method during upcasting or even read ahead in the stream.
