Title: How to check if list a part of list?
Post by: HasanCAD on October 20, 2019, 11:10:07 AM
Hi all

How to check if list pt a part of list lst

Code: [Select]
(setq lst ((505.434 294.582 0.0) (630.636 386.387 0.0) (755.837 478.191 0.0)))
(setq pt (505.434 294.582 0.0))

(member pt lst)
?

If you need some tolerance -

Code - Auto/Visual Lisp: [Select]
  1. (vl-some '(lambda ( x ) (equal x pt 1e-8)) lst)

Code - Auto/Visual Lisp: [Select]
  1. (vl-remove-if-not '(lambda (x) (equal pt x 0)) lst)

Working perfect
Thanks All

Using vl-remove-if-not will realize a HUGE unnecessary performance penalty.

List length 1024:

Elapsed milliseconds / relative speed for 32768 iteration(s):

    (VL-SOME (QUOTE (LAMBDA (X) (EQUAL X...)......1188 / 9.26 <fastest>
    (VL-REMOVE-IF-NOT (QUOTE (LAMBDA (X)...).....11000 / 1.00 <slowest>

List length 8192:

Elapsed milliseconds / relative speed for 8192 iteration(s):

    (VL-SOME (QUOTE (LAMBDA (X) (EQUAL X...).......375 / 56.00 <fastest>
    (VL-REMOVE-IF-NOT (QUOTE (LAMBDA (X)...).....21000 / 1.00 <slowest>

If I didn't require a tolerance on the point comparison I'd use member/vl-position too, but doubles are rarely exactly equal  :-)

Surprising result, illuminates the impact data diversity can have upon performance. That said, using a remove type function to determine membership triggers my OCD. O.o

In real world use I donít believe vl-position or member are practical for floats or lists of floats.

The question was "How to check if list pt a part of list lst". We answered this question :)

Completely agree. Whenever working with AutoLISP reals, fuzzy comparisons are a must IMO; using member/vl-position to perform tests against what are essentially numerical approximations is like building a house on sand.

Another a little bit sloverÖ

Code: [Select]
(benchmark '(
(vl-some '(lambda (x) (equal x pt 1e-8)) lst)
(vl-member-if '(lambda (x) (equal x pt 1e-8)) Lst)
(vl-some '(lambda (x) (equal x pt 1e-8)) lst)
(vl-member-if '(lambda (x) (equal x pt 1e-8)) Lst)
))
elapsed milliseconds / relative speed for 1024 iteration(s):

    (VL-SOME (QUOTE (LAMBDA (X) (EQUAL X...).....1484 / 1.04 <fastest>
    (VL-SOME (QUOTE (LAMBDA (X) (EQUAL X...).....1500 / 1.03

Diminishing returns, how do they work?

I hope I understood the question well...
with vl-member-if there is the advantage of having a return value with more information
