Method from org.apache.mahout.math.function.ObjectProcedure Detail:
 public boolean apply(T element)
    Applies a procedure to an argument. Optionally can return a boolean flag to inform the object calling the procedure.

    Example: forEach() methods often use procedure objects. To signal to a forEach() method whether iteration should continue normally or terminate (because for example a matching element has been found), a procedure can return false to indicate termination and true to indicate continuation.
