Hello ppf. Consider this one https://www.freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=26533 (adapted for larger data sets, 5000 entries+) One exemple here https://www.freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=27568&p=261028#p261028 Some few documentation here : https://www.freebasic.net/forum/v...

Re: New array features

@Tourist Trap. There are several severe technical difficulties to foresee: how to standardize the access to the data of the table? What syntax for functions? How to run the same syntax on different types of data without having to include a micro-runtime? And so on. In the case of an instruction set ...

Re: New array features

I will not rate an appreciation on the technical side. I think it is fine if we can have different functionality and logics because they will be complementary. A set of basic instructions provides a methodology while a function allows the execution speed and a dense coding. I do not know when or if ...

Re: Best Implementation for Set of Elements that I manually change

Hi JohnM This one is not the best implementation (your specifications does ot need keys, just indices) Much slower(*), consummes memory and requires a library (https://www.freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=26533), BETA state. Depending on what you expect to do you might appreciate using it...

Re: When will we have a new challenge :)

Hello Tourist Trap. I want to enjoy a little time to share my feelings. I am not a c developer, and coding time is a little behind me (at the professional level). But from my past experience in IT service company, I kept the taste for design. At that time, creating an index was a right click on the ...

Re: New array features

@Juergen Kuehlwein "I´m still looking for a way to have a consistent and flexible syntax using keywords and optional parameters as well. " If I had to design an instruction set for arrays in conjunction with my programming style, it should meet the following criteria: ease, flexibility, an...

Re: New array features

@fxm : Thanks a lot . I now have a better idea of how I perhaps could proceed. I'll make some try using integer Ptr. @speedfixer : about implementation. You're right. For years, I rather tried to guess how the underlying treatments were organized rather than looking at the solutions. A huge waste of...

Re: New array features

As usual, I am completely dumped by the technical level of Dodicat's code. I did some tests at my level, and these codes are interesting for me to better understand the very basic implementation: This code shows that for strings (variable lenght) data are referenced via pointers Dim As String s(1 To...

Re: New array features

The perfect code that does everything does not exist. The algorithm to work on a huge table will not be the same as that for a multitude of small hierarchical tables in a tree if only because of the heaviness of loading the libraries. Tourist Trap mentioned a point I think is crucial about the impor...

Re: New array features

All this brings me to the ideas developping array-extensions dedicated to a context oriented database. So less rapid on the pure calculation but heavier on average data sets, and rather dedicated to the manipulation of high volumes. For this purpose, a low level feature seem useful to me: array_AllO...

Re: New array features

The array type has the advantage of proposing a fast and comprehensible structure of the information filling relatively little space in memory and which can serve as a technical basis for the matrix calculation and many others (statistics, R language). In addition, the speed is very fast because the...

Re: New array features

Re: New array features

@Juergen Kuehlwein : "The more a fast searching function scanning the whole array (or parts of it) for a value would be of help." I am not convinced of the interest of a search function of keywords in a table, except for low to medium volumetrics and for not too dynamic operations. Indeed,...
