CSCC24 – Principles of Programming Languages Functional Programming - Scheme Defining Functions From last class: Parameter: integer n ≥ 0. Result: sum of integers from 0 to n. ( define (sum-n n) (cond ) ) What could/should we change if ____________? (sum-list x): Given x a list of numbers, returns the sum of all the numbers in x. ( define (sum-list x) (cond How would you define sum-n if n could be a list of s-expressions and you only wanted to sum those elements that are numbers? Recursive Scheme Function: Length (Note: There is a built-in length function. ) ( define (length x) (cond ) ) This is called “cdr-recursion” which processes the car of the list and then has a recursive call on the cdr of the list. More cdr recursion (append x y): 1) We recurse through the first list, taking it apart and adding it onto the second list. _____________________________________ _____. Let's show some examples of this: (append '(a) '(b c)) (append '(a b c) '(d (e f) g)) There are two bases cases. In the code below, the first base case is simply for efficiency (no need to recreate x when y is

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
