A function to split a range into several ranges of different chunks

2020-09-14 Thread Andrej Mitrovic via Digitalmars-d-learn

-
import std.range;
import std.stdio;

void main ()
{
auto range = sequence!((a, n) => n);

// works, but the chunks are all the same length
auto rngs = range.chunks(4);
writeln(rngs[0]);
writeln(rngs[1]);
writeln(rngs[2]);

// want this
auto ranges = range.???(3, 4, 5);
writeln(ranges[0] == [1, 2, 3]);
writeln(ranges[1] == [4, 5, 6, 7]);
writeln(ranges[2] == [8, 9, 10, 11, 12]);

Do you know of a simple way to do this? It's essentially similar 
to chunks, except the chunks themselves would not be of the same 
length.


You can think of a good name for '???' here. Maybe this is 
already possible by combining functionality in std.range - but I 
came up short.

Re: Asio Bindings?

2016-06-08 Thread Andrej Mitrovic via Digitalmars-d-learn
I do have (Steinberg) ASIO binding in D.

The problem is I couldn't release the bindings. I've asked Steinberg
if it was OK to release D bindings and they were strongly against it
unfortunately (and this was over 3 years ago..).

Any kind of direct use of ASIO requires their approval first.. meaning
you had to register on their website.

I would recommend using third party libs that abstract the underlying
engine, like PortAudio  or RtAudio (the later of which I'm going to
release a port of soon!).

I had a binding to PortAudio but the devs of that library insisted on
only supporting interleaved audio, RtAudio supports both interleaved
and non-interleaved audio, and the library is easy to port.

It's likely an accepts-invalid bug, meaning it should be a compiler
error instead. I don't think it makes sense that the compiler tries to
slice a fixed-length array of length zero.. tho perhaps it should just
equate that to returning null.

In any case you can return `null` instead of "empty". Fixed-length
arrays of length zero aren't really all that well-defined. Some would
say they make no sense, but there is a weird benefit to them when used
with the built-in hashmaps (a void[0] value type wouldn't allocate
memory, AFAIR and if that is still true).

 D is a C derivative, so it seems a shame not to identify causes

This has already been done! D defines an array to be a struct with a
pointer and a length. See this article:
http://www.drdobbs.com/architecture-and-design/cs-biggest-mistake/228701625

I would argue it's not off-by-one that's causing most issues when
dealing with C arrays, but instead it's in general out-of-bounds
issues (whether it's off bye one or off by 50..) since you often don't
have the length or could easily use the wrong variable as the length.

Think about how much D code would actually have subtle off-by-one
errors if D didn't use 0-based indexing like the majority of popular
languages use. Any time you would interface with other languages you
would have to double, triple-check all your uses of arrays.

FWIW at the very beginning I also found it odd that languages use
0-based indexing, but that was before I had any significant
programming experience under my belt. By now it's second nature to me
to use 0-based indexing.

Whenever you don't get a stack trace on Windows, it's 99% guaranteed you're

 I have a pretty big source code and an access violation happens at
runtime, but it's going to be a nightmare looking through it all to find
the access violation. Not to mention all the tests I have to run.

 So if there is a way to catch an access violation and find out where it

 or at the very worst:

 const double p0 = 0.0045;

 For me, enum means create an enumerated type. Thus enum double to
 define a single value is just a contradiction.

 Enlightenment required…

 The keyword enum stems from the enum hack in C++, where you use:
 enum {foo = 100}; //Or similar

 As a way to declare a manifest constant known at compile time.

 D simply hijacked the enum keyword to mean manifest constant that is
known at compile time.

 Compared to an immutable instance:
 * The immutable instance creates an actual reference-able object in your
binary. The enum will not exist outside of the compilation (think of it as
a higher order macro)
 * immutable represents a value, which *may* be initialized at runtime. In
any case, more often than not (I have observed), the compiler will refuse
to use the immutable's value as compile-time known, and it won't be useable
as a template parameter, or static if constraint.

Ouch, ouch, ouch! What's happening is that the 'clear' Appender method
is only compiled-in if the data is mutable, otherwise you end up
calling the object.clear UFCS function. So don't use clear here.

I don't know if this is a case of poor method naming or another

Because 'static foreach' is not an explicit feature yet, so it 
depends on the context. When you wrap the trait via:


[__traits(allMembers, MyStruct)]

You're creating an array, and foreach will *not* by default 
attempt to become a static foreach, even if the array is known at 
compile-time. If you remove the parentheses it will work. You've 
had a few bugs in the mixin code though, anyway here's the 
working sample:


-
import std.stdio;

struct MyStruct
{
float float_value = 0.0f;
ubyte ubyte_value = 2;
}

enum members = __traits(allMembers, MyStruct);

void main()

If you need to store the tuple as an array to some variable, then you
would use that syntax. It all depends on what you're trying to do from
the call site. Ultimately it won't matter much once we finally get a
proper 'static foreach' feature in D.

You can replaced it with std.functional.toDelegate.

As for its use-case, if some API or function supports only 
delegates but you want to pass in a function, you would wrap the 
function with toDelegate and then pass the delegate to the

Actually, the compiler injects a return statement in D's main.

It generates the actual C main function (unless WinMain/DllMain is
provided), which calls another special D runtime init function, which
itself calls the D main function (which itself has the injected return
statement unless it's already an int return).

Try removing it and compile std.range with -unittest. Here's what happens:

std\range.d(546): Error: static assert  (isInputRange!(inout(int)[])) is false

The reason it's false is because the code wouldn't compile. Here's a test-case:

-
import std.array;

void test()
{
inout(int)[] r = (inout(int)[]).init;
if (r.empty) {}
r.popFront();
auto h = r.front;
}

void main()

test();
}

test.d(7): Error: variable test.test.r inout variables can only be

So you need to add inout in the parameter list to avoid this compiler
error and to make your function work with any qualified range type.

 The thing is, an array is a reference type

Actually it's not, let's not confuse people with the terminology here.
To recap for people new to arrays: an array in D is really just a
struct, e.g.:

struct Array
{
int* data;
size_t length;
}

Array myArray;

Once you know this it's easy to understand why passing myArray by
value to a function allows you to change the contents of data, but
changing what data points to or changing the length of the array
will not be reflected at the call site, *unless* you've passed myArray
to a function by reference.


Re: Simplest way to create an array from an associative array which its contains keys and values?

 In other words while:

 Saves a few lines of code, and looks cooler, it seems that the
 trivial foreach loop version is very easy:

 string[] array;

 foreach (key, value; aa) {
   array ~= key;
   array ~= value;
 }

OP asked for an array, however the reason I showed the example is
because you can get a range that way, which is lazy and will not
allocate:

auto items = aa.byKey.map!(a = chain(a.only, aa[a].only)).joiner;  //
no allocations at all
writeln(items);

So there's a huge difference, as you're saving memory (and CPU time if
you don't want to walk through the entire list).

However the [k, aa[k]] expression will allocate an array for each 
key you iterate over regardless if you use join or joiner. I

std.regex literal syntax (the \Q…\E escape sequence)

2013-12-18 Thread Andrej Mitrovic
I'm reading through http://www.regular-expressions.info, and there's a
feature that's missing from std.regex, quoted:

-
All the characters between the \Q and the \E are interpreted as
literal characters. E.g. \Q*\d+*\E matches the literal text *\d+*. The
\E may be omitted at the end of the regex, so \Q*\d+* is the same as
\Q*\d+*\E.
-

This would translate to the following needing to work (which fails at
runtime with an exception):

writeln(r*\d+*.match(r\Q*\d+*\E));

Should this feature be added? I guess there's probably more regex
features missing (I just began reading the page), I'm not sure how
Dmitry feels about adding X number of features though.

Btw one thing I'm not fond of is the format specifiers, in particular:

$`  part of input preceding the match.
$'  part of input following the match.

` and ' are very hard to tell apart. But I guess this was based on an
existing standard? Personally I'd prefer $ and $.

Shouldn't SList in std.container hold an owner pointer to verify a range belongs to the list?

2013-12-16 Thread Andrej Mitrovic
Here's some improper code that is not checked properly by SList
(meaning no assertions, not even in debug mode):

-
import std.stdio;
import std.container;

void main()
{
auto s1 = SList!string([a, b, d]);
auto s2 = SList!string([a, b, d]);

// note the s1[] instead of s2[]!
s2.insertAfter(std.range.take(s1[], 2), c);

writeln(s1[]);  // updated s1, not s2!
writeln(s2[]);  // s2 stays the same.
}
-

Note the docs of insertAfter:

Inserts $(D stuff) after range $(D r), which must be a range
previously extracted from this container.

Well clearly we have a range extracted from one list being used to add
items to a different list, but SList makes no checks at all to verify
the range belongs to it. I had a look at DCollections[1], and it
stores an owner pointer (or reference) in the range type when its
extracted from a linked-list, so it can do these types of sanity
checks.

So shouldn't we add this to SList? We'd have to add an owner field to
its internal Range struct.

 http://dlang.org/phobos/std_math.html#.pow

 See the fourth overload: `if (isFloatingPoint!F  isFloatingPoint!G)`.

 Is there any difference between using `a ^^ b` and `pow(a,b)`?

Depends on whether the arguments are known at compile-time, and their
type. And in fact.. constant folding also affects what works
regardless of what you type something with, so initializers are taken
into account. Some demonstrations:

-
void main()
{
int a = 2, b = 2;
auto c = a ^^ b;
}
-

test.d(6): Error: must import std.math to use ^^ operator

The following will work though, probably through some compiler intrinsic:

-
void main()
{
enum a = 2, b = 2;
auto c = a ^^ b;
}
-

Here's where things get interesting. The following works:

-
void main()
{
enum float a = 1.0;
enum float b = 2.1;
auto c = a ^^ b;
}
-

But the following doesn't:

-
void main()
{
enum float a = 1.1;  // note the .1 change
enum float b = 2.1;
auto c = a ^^ b;
}
-

So even if you type something as `enum float a = 1.0`, the compiler
will be able to implicitly convert it to an int and it will make the
call work.

It seems like the intrinsic supports int^^int, int^^float, and
float^^int, but not float^^float.

Side-note: Importing std.stdio implicitly imports std.math, so you
won't have any errors (boy do I hate public imports where they don't
belong..).

 Around the time the book was written, there was a debate as to if
 we should make dynamic arrays and slices two different types.
 T[new] was the proposed syntax for a dynamic array, leaving T[]
 to be a slice.

I think it was just an oversight that it was left in the book, I don't
