Unformatted text preview: Loops in Scheme, II c. Kathi Fisler, 2001 (early slides assume map/filter) Recap: filter and map filter and map are Schemes loops filter : ( ! boolean) list[ ] ! list[ ] extract list of elts that satisfy a predicate map : ( ! ) list[ ] ! list[ ] applies function to all elts, returning list of results Recall sum ;; sum : list[num] ! num ;; adds up the elements of a list of numbers (define (sum alon) (cond [(empty? alon) 0] [(cons? alon) (+ (first alon) (sum (rest alon)))])) Sum also loops; how to write it with filter/map? [try it] filter/map dont work for sum Both return lists -- sum returns a number Sum requires another kind of loop We derived filter by looking at two programs with similar structure and abstracting the common parts into a helper function sum and product ;; sum : list[num] ! num ;; adds elts of a list of nums (define (sum alon) (cond [(empty? alon) 0] [(cons? alon) (+ (first alon) (sum (rest alon)))])) ;; prod : list[num] ! num ;; multiplies list of nums (define (prod alon) (cond [(empty? alon) 1] [(cons? alon) (* (first alon) (prod (rest alon)))])) Where do these two programs differ? sum and product ;; sum : list[num] ! num ;; adds elts of a list of nums (define (sum alon) (cond [(empty? alon) ] [(cons? alon) ( + (first alon) (sum (rest alon)))])) ;; prod : list[num] ! num ;; multiplies list of nums (define (prod alon) (cond [(empty? alon) 1 ] [(cons? alon) ( * (first alon) (prod (rest alon)))])) Make the blue parts parameters to a new function [try it] The New Loop ;; newloop : ? num list[num] ! num (define (newloop combine base alon) (cond [(empty? alon) base] [(cons? alon) (combine (first alon) (newloop (rest alon)))])) Write sum and product using newloop [try it] The New Loop ;; newloop : ? num list[num] ! num (define (newloop combine base alon) (cond [(empty? alon) base] [(cons? alon) (combine (first alon) (newloop (rest alon)))])) ;; sum : list[num] ! num (define (sum alon) (newloop + 0 alon) ;; prod : list[num] ! num (define (prod alon) (newloop * 1 alon) The New Loop ;; newloop : ? num list[num] ! num (define (newloop combine base alon) (cond [(empty? alon) base] [(cons? alon) (combine (first alon) (newloop (rest alon)))])) Write length (of a list) using newloop [try it] base and alon arguments are easy but combine The New Loop ;; newloop : ? num list[num] ! num (define (newloop combine base alon) (cond [(empty? alon) base] [(cons? alon) (combine (first alon) (newloop (rest alon)))])) What is combines contract? [try it] ;; combine : (we see from its use that it takes two arguments) ! The New Loop ;; newloop : ? num list[num] ! num (define (newloop combine base alon) (cond [(empty? alon) base] [(cons? alon) (combine (first alon) (newloop (rest alon)))])) What is combines contract?...
