Q: Codeium Golfide

Stephen Leppik In this challenge, your task is to take an anion and a cation, and output the chemical formula of the compound. The input follows these rules: Take in 2 strings (in any order) representing the anion and cation, e.g. F, NH_4, or Al. To take in the charge of each ion, you can either have it as ...

@DJMcMayhem what was that link you showed me to find the semi-shortest way to get a number in Brain-Flak?
 
ruby for counting letters divided by count of digits?
my python approach is too long
import re
s=input()
print(round(len(re.findall("[A-Za-z]",s))/len(re.findall("\d",s))))
ruby
s=gets
p (s.scan(/[A-z]/).size.to_f/s.scan(/[0-9]/).size).round
 
4:25 AM
a,n=gets.split.map(&:to_i)
n.times{a^=1<<gets.to_i}
p a
There a shorter way to do this?
read in a, number of lines n (both space-separated ints on same line)
then n lines, each with a number
you flip that bit in a
then print a

@MarcusAndrews Use // instead of round

@Adám So it applies the circular function to each element? :p

@Mego good idea
 
1:12 PM
@HyperNeutrino Ah that is the next one?
 
(well that is already explained in the example part)
Now what remains is how to calculate the values efficiently.
 
yes
I guess the trivial method is to get integer partitions and then determine how many unique type combinations exist for each
 
Looking at the generating function it seems that it is possible to write a knapsack algorithm.
^ Huh it is so easy
CMC: Above.
Also for Enlist feature request: (it seems that you left the room for too long that @ ping does not work): Multiple link support.
Is there any way to generate the list generate by the following Jelly code, in Jelly? 5R [1,2,3]ḷ$ €

^^^ Ignore my extraneous spaces and []s.
 
5R [[1,2,3]]ṁ
3RWẋ5 is the shortest I can get
 
Oh, the can also works like that. Thanks!
So the x works down to the lowest layer, while only works on the first level.
 
I don't understand x but is just (l, r) => (l is list ? l : [l]) * r
(approximate Proton translation)
 
1:29 PM
I don't even know that * in Python is list duplication.
^ I can write that message implies that I know? Anyway I don't "officially" know Python.
And x is duplicate each number in the lowest level that many numbers of time.
 
Python has multiplication of lists like that

Hah. )off is the first function I've seen that starts with ). Are there others?
 
4:17 PM
@Pavel They are called system commands. You can also use ⎕OFF.
 
Cool
I was pleasantly surprised earlier to learn that Fedora/Cinnamon already had a Dyalog layout. Unlike the Windows IME layout, however, it doesn't contain regular keys, it essentially acts as if the APL key is always depressed.
 
@Pavel It is supposed to be used as an additional keyboard layer.
 
@Adám I found a setting to temporarily change layout while a key is pressed.
 
@Pavel Exactly. Now you can use as your APL key.

Possibly because the number won't stay still long enough.
 
I don't really understand why everyone is quite this mad (as I have little context), but this is certainly about the closest anyone could possibly get to making every single reddit user mad
 
6:33 PM
@ETHproductions It's because the game costs a lot of money (60? 80? dollars), but most of the content is hidden behind more transactions or a very very long grind (150 hours to unlock every hero)
 
The EA post is actually quite clever. They admit to engineering for maximum profit but try to make it sound like a feature.
 
Anonymous
@ETHproductions The context is, EA is selling the game for $80 ($60 + $20 for extra heroes), and the most iconic character from Star Wars (Darth Vader) is hidden behind either a $20 microtransaction or a grind that takes 40 hours on average.
 
Anonymous
And EA basically said "yeah we're doing this on purpose, lol give us more money or waste your time trying to get this thing in a video game that gives no sense of accomplishment"

@Mr.Xcoder That's (monad)(monad)(nilad)(quick)(monad) because -8 is a single niladic token. So that becomes a monad-monad-monad link

Python style question: Is this bad style?
def foo():
    import bar

    ...
 
@DJMcMayhem I think that's a syntax error
 
@DJMcMayhem Imports have to happen outside all classes, functions.
so you'd need to do...
import bar

def foo():
    ....
because otherwise it's a syntax error and will actually explode at times
 
>>> def foo():
...     import math
...     return math.pi
...
>>> foo()
3.141592653589793
>>>
Sure about that?
 
@DJMcMayhem it's doable, but you'll get a lot of "WTF are you doing" from a style perspective
 
7:34 PM
What if I only want to access bar from inside of foo?
 
@DJMcMayhem how can you do that o_o
 
@DJMcMayhem import it at the beginning, only use it within foo.
if you want to be style compliant you do all your imports at the beginning of the file
if you don't then it doesn't matter, do what you want as long as you don't error out
but most style checkers will yell at you.
including the one inside PyCharm :p
 
@EriktheOutgolfer However:
>>> def foo():
...     import math
...     return math.pi
...
>>> foo()
3.141592653589793
>>>
>>> math.pi

@cairdcoinheringaahing Japt, 2 bytes: øø
 
@ETHproductions Hahaha:
3 hours ago, by DJMcMayhem
øø almost works in V :/
 
@ETHproductions it's an almost polyglot with V ;-p
 
7:45 PM
What's ø in Japt?
Fun fact: øø in V will tell you how many hexadecimal characters are on the current line
 
8:04 PM
@DJMcMayhem How does that almost work
That sounds nothing like the required task
 
@Pavel Because ø tells you how many times a certain regex matches on the current line. And the second ø in the regex doesn't match a literal ø, because it's non-ASCII. In V, any non-ASCII in a regex is translated to \<char-with-the-high-bit-turned-off>, which in this case is \x, which is a vim character class for [0-9A-Fa-f]
 
Is there a shorter way to do this?

A=[input()for k in' '*int(input())]
print('\n'.join(A[::2]+A[1::2]))
 
What is it for?
 
take in a bunch of strings, join every other even line with every other odd line
(in either ruby or python, whichever is shorter)
 
8:22 PM
@MarcusAndrews Python 2 is shorter (by 3 bytes):
A=[raw_input()for k in' '*input()]
print'\n'.join(A[::2]+A[1::2])
 
@DJMcMayhem On a string, it returns true if the string contains the argument to ø, otherwise false
 
huh, you're right
 
i.e. AøB returns true if (variable)A contains (variable) B
this works in this case via a combination of implicit input and magic
 
A bit longer using exec: A=[];exec"A+=[raw_input()];"*input()
 
@MarcusAndrews You can get the first bit in Ruby with A=(1..gets.to_i).map{gets}
 
8:24 PM
what about a gets and then $<.read?
gets
puts $<.read
or p, whichever
 
That just discard the first line of input
 
I don't know how to do the equivalent of partitioning/slicing in Ruby
 
But yeah something like that
 
most of the SO answers I see involve long syntax
so possible that ruby is not shortest but still
 
@MarcusAndrews you could cheat, A=$<.read.split(?\n)[1,99]. This assumes the tests never have more than 99 lines.
That's not shorter than just sticking a gets in
 
8:29 PM
XD
 
So gets;A=$<.read.split(?\n)
 
is ?\n the same as "\n" ?
 
Yep
 
What is that syntax, Ruby?
 
gets;A=$<.read.split(?\n)
puts[A.step(2).to_a,A.last(A.length-2).step(2).to_a].flatten
@MarcusAndrews I got ^ using some godawful array slicing.
@Mr.Xcoder Yep
 
8:36 PM
@Pavel No, I was asking Ruby itself why it has that syntax!
 
@Mr.Xcoder Originally ?x meant x.ord. The .ord got dropped by the syntax stayed.
gets;A=$<.read.split(?\n)
puts A.step(2).to_a,A.last(A.length-2).step(2).to_a
Slightly shorter
 
:o Ruby longer than Python?
 
@Mr.Xcoder Python has good array slicing
gets;A=$<.lines.to_a
puts A.step(2).to_a,A.last(A.length-1).step(2).to_a
@MarcusAndrews ^ Is as far as I think I can get it with my current approach.
 
I did see a .partition function but it didn't seem to like certain lengths

Yep. Welcome to modern gaming.
 
10:04 PM
@ATaco If you want a fun game that the developers didn't jack up I just got Divinity Original Sin II, they did phenomenal.
@ATaco They had the preorder in Early Access at $20, which you'd get content early (20% of the entire game!!!), and basically beta test mechanics for them. THEN you get the full game FREE when it released (a AAA title worth $59.99).
@ATaco I miss small companies like Larian Studios...
Has anyone done a challenge for ASCII tallies?
 
@MagicOctopusUrn I put something on Steam and it is a pretty soul-crushing experience
Larian did the original Divine Divinity, right?
 
@MagicOctopusUrn Already played it, Loved it.
 
@ATaco My main point was how they handled early access, I LOVED that.
@ATaco I forget which game I bought in early access, went AAA and recharged all the people who were testing it in alpha.
 
Some games are still great. Like everything Nintendo is doing.
 
@EricTressler Yeah, they did. Also, what did you put on steam? Did they ream you in the reviews?

@DestructibleLemon no, which is why I haven't really brought it up in chat. I do have a free word game that I made last year and am going to revamp this winter
I'll bring it back up in a month or two, and that's easier to talk about

@EricTressler I'm buying it and trying it fo-sho haha.
@EricTressler How do you get royalties from steam BTW? I've always been interested in that.
 
@MagicOctopusUrn thanks. I didn't know this ahead of time, but there's a 10-review minimum before a game shows up on searches, and I see now how things slip through the cracks.
 
@EricTressler Give it to 9 people for free.
 
@MagicOctopusUrn it's just a flat high % of all sales. I forget exactly what %, but think like 80-95
@MagicOctopusUrn I gave it to more people than that for free during beta testing, but their reviews don't count (and I'm not unethical enough to do it on the side)
 
To anyone who hasn't played it yet, I can sign infinite praises to Mario Odyssey
 
@ATaco I'll wait for the PC port. In 2053

@ATaco Literally the only game I've ever seen on nintendo recently that almost made me buy a damn console.
@ATaco What was the last one? Galaxy? For WII? Duuuude... I rented a console from BLOCKBUSTER for that lmao.
 
I wish nintendo would just blanket adopt emulation of their last-gen systems
 
Breath of the Wild and Mario Odyssey alone make it worth it in my opinion, but if you're like me and spend 4 hours a day on a train, things like Binding of Isaac, Doom, and soon Skyrim are also great selling points.
 
@DestructibleLemon I just caught your last comment, there's also griptopgames.com
 
@EricTressler Won't let me review without the app, guess I'll go play it and figure it out later at home haha.
 
@MagicOctopusUrn Thanks. I hope you like it, if you do decide to try it. I don't know if it's something I'll try again, as it took an incredible amount of time
I spent 2-3 months designing the puzzles and then 3-4 months dealing with nonsense
I think in the future anything I make will be open source
@ATaco I bought an Xbox 360 + PS2 just to buy the Katamari games
 
10:21 PM
@EricTressler Unfortunately, the things that make money with a small development team usually either mislead the user, misrepresent how much content there is or are just passion projects like RimWorld which are phenomenal.
 
@NewSandboxedPosts I don't know Charcoal but I have that feeling that it's gonna be at least two times shorter than SOGL :p
 
@EricTressler could try itch.io?
 
@dzaima That challenge hasn't been done before right?
 
@MagicOctopusUrn Yeah, and I'm not business-minded, it's all horrible to think about for me. I have been waiting for RimWorld to get out of Early Access
I tried DF years ago, but it still has so many apparently broken things... it kept me from wanting to really dig into the nuances
 
@EricTressler A good mod idea for RimWorld I had was just "caching" save files in a "cloud" (oversimplifying). Requires that you're running unmodded. Then, have the ability to generate a game using all the save files as the scattered colonies.
@EricTressler What's DF?
 
10:24 PM
@MagicOctopusUrn So treating them a little bit like nethack bones files
@MagicOctopusUrn DF -> Dwarf Fortress, which I am almost certain is the inspiration for RimWorld
 
@EricTressler I've heard... mixed things lol.
@EricTressler Isn't it dead now?
 
I don't know, the last update was apparently a year and a half ago
so maybe, but recently dead if so
 
@EricTressler All I've been playing lately is KSP... I've fallen hard in love for a second time.
 
@DestructibleLemon I looked into it, but the number of users there is too low, most things on itch fade into obscurity immediately. I thought my chances were better with Steam
 
@EricTressler Tag your games as survival, even if they're not xD (1000 SALES IMMEDIATELY)
 
10:27 PM
I have KSP, but it's... hard to get into.
 
@EricTressler well if you're making it open source, might as well possibly get a donation or two
 
The most I've ever donated to an open-source game was $150, b/c I thought it'd make the developer start up again. I was wrong haha.
 
@DestructibleLemon I'm not making Tametsi open source, at least not for now. Maybe in a couple of years.
Which game?

@EricTressler This was in like 2006, I can't even remember... Before steam even existed in the mainstream... It was like a runescape rip-off (not a private server, but same concept as RS: MMO, Open world, 2D, awesome).
 
@EricTressler i was saying, if you make anything again, use itch.io
 
@DestructibleLemon I may; thanks for the suggestion
 
@EricTressler Post your link on reddit.com/r/Minesweeper.
@EricTressler It may be really well recieved.

@EricTressler Is that game anything like MS? Cause I used to binge on Minesweeper (badly)

@MagicOctopusUrn It is very much like that (but much harder, and no guessing required, and I didn't include random puzzles)
 
@EricTressler (•̀ᴗ•́)و ̑̑ - Unicode emoticon for "YESSS! Success!"
 
I have a random puzzle generator, but the ones in the final game took like 2-24 hours of CPU time each to make/revise
So I can make easy puzzles on the fly, but not hard ones; since the random levels were weaker, I left them out
 
@EricTressler I've seen random dungeon generators do extremely well.
@EricTressler Like crypt of the necro-dancer.
 
That's a fun game
I really like Klei

@MagicOctopusUrn Yeah; it's a little bit of a different situation here. I'd love to talk about the algorithm behind it sometime, but I never had a good reason for doing so. I didn't get stuck on anything enough to ask a question, etc.
 
@DJMcMayhem I get hung up on the artwork for Klei to be entirely honest, and I have no idea why. I feel way more accomplished completing a mission in KSP than building a working colony in ONI.
 
I am afraid of Crypt of the Necro-Dancer. It looks like Dungeons of Dredmore + timing
 
@EricTressler I haven't bought it either, I just know it's entirely too successful to ignore forever haha!
 
@MagicOctopusUrn Really? Huh. I'd say their art-style is one of the biggest selling points for me
Of course, ONI and KSP are radically different in many ways
I haven't played KSP yet though. I really want to
 
@DJMcMayhem I know right? I must just be weird, I've NEVER had anyone agree with me.
@DJMcMayhem God... I've bought it 2 times, it's that good.

@MagicOctopusUrn BTW, just so you know we've got a room just for game-discussion
If you're interested
 
@DJMcMayhem oh, whoops, I forget that I'm spamming the gen discussion channel sometimes. My bad.
@DJMcMayhem Speaking of KSP though, I kind of want to come up with a space-based physics code-golf challenge. I have no idea what I'd do though...
@DJMcMayhem Why haven't you played it btw?
 
@MagicOctopusUrn make it a koth?
 
@DestructibleLemon KotH, 1 part - 1 byte, furthest landing from earth wins? Wait, that's not KotH, what were you thinking for KotH?
 
just remove the codegolf part
make it some sort of space physics koth i guess

Hi! Can I ask a linear algebra related question here?

Q: Basic ASCII Tallies

Magic Octopus UrnGiven a number n, output tallies grouped into the traditional 5-per-group and 50 per row. Examples 1 | | | | 4 |||| |||| |||| |||| 5 |||/ ||/| |/|| /||| 6 |||/ | ||/| | |/|| | /||| | 50 |||/ |||/ |||/ |||/ |||/ |||/ |||/ |||/ |||/ |||/ ||/| ||/| ||/| ||/| ||/| ||/| ||/| ||/| ||/|...

 
Also anyone with experience in projective geometry here?
btw hope everyone is doing okay
