( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Okay, I've got a major improvement on this. Rather than forcing the user to handle iteration through the loop and to compile the return list -- making this implementation of highly dubious value over a normal 'for' loop -- we define an abstract superclass from which to inherit rather an interface to implement:

public abstract static class MapBlock { public Object[] run(Object[] list) { Object[] out = new Object[list.length]; // begin loop through list for (int i = 0; i < list.length; i++) { // call processElement on ourself and collect element return +ed Object new_obj = this.processElement(list[i]); out[i] = new_obj; } return out; } public abstract Object processElement(Object obj); // This might alternatively return an Object array for greater fle +xibility. // 'run' would require slight alterations to deal with an array co +ming back. // Thanks for the idea to [jdporter] }

The original definition of map remains the same. Then below, we can simplify the anonymous class to the point where this is really starting to look like map!

Object[] new_list = map(new MapBlock() { public Object processElement(Object obj) { String str = (String)obj; return str.toUpperCase(); } }, objects); // end of MapBlock, second param objects

It's times like these I say booyah! ; )

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
