How to Work With Tuple in Python

Image
Tuple in python is one of the streaming datasets. The other streaming datasets are List and Dictionary. Operations that you can perform on it are shown here for your reference. Writing tuple is easy. It has values of comma separated, and enclosed with parenthesis '()'. The values in the tuple are immutable, which means you cannot replace with new values. #1. How to create a tuple Code: Tuple example my_tuple=(1,2,3,4,5) print(my_tuple) Output: (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) ** Process exited - Return Code: 0 ** Press Enter to exit terminal #2. How to read tuple values Code: print(my_tuple[0]) Output: 1 ** Process exited - Return Code: 0 ** Press Enter to exit terminal #3. How to add two tuples Code: a=(1,6,7,8) c=(3,4,5,6,7,8) d=print(a+c) Output: (1, 6, 7, 8, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8) ** Process exited - Return Code: 0 ** Press Enter to exit terminal #4.  How to count tuple values Here the count is not counting values; count the repetition of a given value. Code: sample=(1, 6, 7, 8, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

Scala: Unique features you need to know



scala features

Let us start it in layman terms...

Why you need Scala...

The name Scala stands for “scalable language.” The language is so named because it was designed to grow with the demands of its users.

Where Scala can be applied...

You can apply Scala to a wide range of programming tasks, from writing small scripts to
building large systems. 

The real use of Scala...

  • Scala is easy to get into. It runs on the standard Java platform and interoperates seamlessly with all Java libraries. It’s quite a good language for writing scripts that pull together Java components.
  • But it can apply its strengths even more when used for building large systems and frameworks of reusable components.
Technically, Scala is a blend of object-oriented and functional programming
concepts in a statically typed language.
The fusion of object-oriented and functional programming shows up in many different aspects of Scala;
It is probably more pervasive than in any other widely used language. The two programming styles have complementary strengths when it comes to scalability.

What are the Scala unique strengths...
  • Scala’s functional programming constructs make it easy to build interesting things quickly from simple parts.
  • Its object-oriented constructs make it easy to structure larger systems and to adapt them to new demands.
The combination of both styles in Scala makes it possible to express new kinds of programming patterns and component abstractions. It also leads to a legible and concise programming style. And because it is so malleable, programming in Scala can be a lot of fun. 

The sample Scala program...

Scala program:

var capital = Map("US" -> "Washington", "France" -> "Paris")
capital += ("Japan" -> "Tokyo")
println(capital("France"))       

This program sets up a map from countries to their capitals, modifies the map by adding a new binding ("Japan" -> "Tokyo"), and prints the capital associated with the country France.

The notation in this example is high-level, to the point, and not cluttered with extraneous semicolons or type annotations.

Indeed, the feel is that of a modern “scripting” language like Perl, Python, or Ruby.

One common characteristic of these languages, which is relevant for the example above, is that they each support an “associative map” construct in the syntax of the language
