a Scilab object and a list definition function
list(a1, ..., an)
list with elements
ai's which are arbitrary Scilab objects
list,...). Type of
list objects is 15.
creates the empty
list (0 element).
Operations on lists
vis a vector of indices;
[x,y,z,...]=L(:)extracts all the elements.
- insertion at index i
L(i)=a(note that it is not an error to use
i > 1 + size(L)but some list entries are then undefined and their extraction gives raise to an error).
- append an element in queue
- append an element in head
L(0)=e.After this operation
eis an index 1, the initial elements being shifted on the right.
i-th element of the list
- concatenation of two lists
L3 = lstcat(L1,L2).
- number of elements of a list
- iterations with a list
it is possible to use a list
Lwith a for loop:
for e=L,...,endis a loop with
length(L)iterations, the loop variable
ebeing equal to
Scilab provides also other kinds of list, the tlist type (typed list) and the mlist type which are useful to define a new data type with operator overloading facilities (hypermatrices which are multidimensional arrays in Scilab are in fact mlist).
Matlab struct are also available.
l = list(1,["a" "b"]) // declaration of a basic list with a double & a vector of two strings size(l) // Size is 2 // l(0) - Does not exist! l(1) // Access to the double value l(2) // Access to the vector of strings size(l(2)) // Size is 1,2 l(0) = "foo" // Insert at the beginning of the list // l(0) - still does not exist l(1) // Is "foo" l($+1) = "hello" // Insert at the end l(2) = "toto" // Override my double l(3) = rand(1,2) // Override my vector of string l(3) = null() // Remove the third element lbis = list("gewurtz", "caipirina" ,"debug") // Declare a new list lter = lstcat(l,lbis) // Merge the two list size(lter) - size(lbis) - size(l) // must be zero
- null — delete an element in a list
- lstcat — list concatenation
- tlist — Scilab object and typed list definition.
- mlist — Scilab object, matrix oriented typed list definition
- insertion — partial variable assignation or modification
- extraction — matrix and list entry extraction
- size — size of objects
- length — length of object
