Too much abstract freedom? N adjacent tree nodes, N neighbouring states, etc.

Hm. I'm not convinced by that argument.

  1. map is a piece of paper with colored lines and symbols; or the process of making one.
  2. reduce, is what you do to a good sauce or damaged goods.

I think context and convention; along with conciseness and memorability are key here.

For each element, one property is defined: the successor.

Hm. Can you have a successor without a predecessor? And actually, this deals with both -- or potentially more:

sub mapAdj(&$@) { local( $a, $b, $c, $d, $e, $f, $g, $h, $i, $j ); my( $code, $n ) = ( shift, shift ); map $code->( ($a, $b, $c, $d, $e, $f, $g, $h, $i, $j ) = @_[ $_-$n .. $_ ] ), --$n .. $#_; } my @accum = mapAdj{ $a + $b + $c } 3, 1..10;

And 'successor' tends to have mathematical connotations which don't apply to a list of *any*things.

For the simple case of adjacent pairs, I toyed with forByTwo() :)

Title:
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
