##### Grid point list conversion
« on: September 11, 2020, 03:17:32 PM »
Hey guys,
Haven't been mapping lists for a while and now I'm banging my head on this one -

The following matrix list represents the grid point coordinates in the attached image:
Code: [Select]
`'(  ("1-1" "1-2" "1-3" "1-4" "1-5" "1-6" "1-7")   ("2-1" "2-2" "2-3" "2-4" "2-5" "2-6" "2-7")   ("3-1" "3-2" "3-3" "3-4" "3-5" "3-6" "3-7")   ("4-1" "4-2" "4-3" "4-4" "4-5" "4-6" "4-7"))`
I need some help in writing a subfoo to convert it like so:
Code: [Select]
`'(  ("1-1" "1-2" "2-1" "2-2")  ("1-2" "1-3" "2-2" "2-3")  ("1-3" "1-4" "2-3" "2-4")  ("1-4" "1-5" "2-4" "2-5")  ("1-5" "1-6" "2-5" "2-6")  ("1-6" "1-7" "2-6" "2-7")  ("2-1" "2-2" "3-1" "3-2")  ("2-2" "2-3" "3-2" "3-3")  ("2-3" "2-4" "3-3" "3-4")  ("2-4" "2-5" "3-4" "3-5")  ("2-5" "2-6" "3-5" "3-6")  ("2-6" "2-7" "3-6" "3-7")  ("3-1" "3-2" "4-1" "4-2")  ("3-2" "3-3" "4-2" "4-3")  ("3-3" "3-4" "4-3" "4-4")  ("3-4" "3-5" "4-4" "4-5")  ("3-5" "3-6" "4-5" "4-6")  ("3-6" "3-7" "4-6" "4-7"))`
The items in the new list represent the rectangular sectors of the whole grid.

(apply ''((a b c)(a b c))
'(
(( f L ) (apply 'strcat (f L)))
(( L ) (if L (cons (chr (car L)) (f (cdr L)))))
(72 101 108 108 111 32 87 111 114 108 100)
)
)

tired brain ... quick & dirty ... no hand holding ... assumes non jagged nested lists ... forgive me if it doesn't achieve what you want but it's been so long since I played ...

Code: [Select]
`(defun subfoo ( lst / r a b c d )    (repeat (1- (length lst))        (repeat (1- (length (car (mapcar 'set '(a b) lst))))            (setq r (cons (append (mapcar 'set '(c d) a) (mapcar 'set '(c d) b)) r))             (mapcar 'set '(a b) (mapcar 'cdr (list a b)))        )        (setq lst (cdr lst))    )    (reverse r))`
(subfoo yourlist)

(   ("1-1" "1-2" "2-1" "2-2")
("1-2" "1-3" "2-2" "2-3")
("1-3" "1-4" "2-3" "2-4")
("1-4" "1-5" "2-4" "2-5")
("1-5" "1-6" "2-5" "2-6")
("1-6" "1-7" "2-6" "2-7")
("2-1" "2-2" "3-1" "3-2")
("2-2" "2-3" "3-2" "3-3")
("2-3" "2-4" "3-3" "3-4")
("2-4" "2-5" "3-4" "3-5")
("2-5" "2-6" "3-5" "3-6")
("2-6" "2-7" "3-6" "3-7")
("3-1" "3-2" "4-1" "4-2")
("3-2" "3-3" "4-2" "4-3")
("3-3" "3-4" "4-3" "4-4")
("3-4" "3-5" "4-4" "4-5")
("3-5" "3-6" "4-5" "4-6")
("3-6" "3-7" "4-6" "4-7")
)

Well, MP was faster and more elegant, but here is mine...

Hi,
In the same spirit as the solution given by stephan ...
Code - Auto/Visual Lisp: [Select]
1. (defun f (l)
2.   (if (cdr l)
3.     (append (mapcar 'list (car l) (cdar l) (cadr l) (cdadr l))
4.             (f (cdr l)))))

Here's a rusty attempt:

Code: [Select]
`(defun foo (a)  (list    (car a)    (cadr a)  ))(defun rec (w / y)  (if (cdadr w)    (progn      (Setq y (foo w)     z (cons (mapcar 'foo y)     z       )      )      (rec (mapcar 'cdr y))      (rec (cdr w))    )  ))(defun rec2 (x / z)  (rec x)  (reverse    (mapcar '(lambda (x)        (apply 'append x)      )     z    )  ))(rec2 '( ("1-1" "1-2" "1-3" "1-4" "1-5" "1-6" "1-7") ("2-1" "2-2" "2-3" "2-4" "2-5" "2-6" "2-7") ("3-1" "3-2" "3-3" "3-4" "3-5" "3-6" "3-7") ("4-1" "4-2" "4-3" "4-4" "4-5" "4-6" "4-7")       ))`

I would say just "some" - on Serbian... OP haven't replied in any way saying thanks or something equal to anyone participated... I don't know are replies useful to him, but IMHO not reacting to request proposed in first post is humiliating behaviour for all that wanted to contribute... And timings of sub functions - benchmarking for this task are the least meaningful. I'd say that for a matrix 1000x1000 for normal PC it would take around 1 sec for computation with any of proposed subs... And 1000x1000 matrix is IMHO monkey bussines for any kind of situation OP may be facing in real life situation.

I don't feel humiliated but I'm assuming the OP may be engaged with matters of greater importance which could be family, job ... given his tenure here that seems probable.

I know I'm a bit late to this party but it was fun to try. so I'll post anyways.
I mainly wanted to try to create without using append.
Code: [Select]
`(defun map2sqr (map / squares)  (mapcar    '(lambda (m1 m2)      (mapcar        '(lambda (c1 c2 c3 c4)          (setq squares (cons (list c1 c2 c3 c4) squares))        );lambda        m1        (cdr m1)        m2        (cdr m2)      );mapcar    );lambda    map    (cdr map)  );mapcar  (reverse squares));defun`

As you can see, I was perhaps wrong for 1000x1000 matrix and 1 second, but my function is indeed faster than Ron's - testing sample done at 50x50 matrix... For spacing issues, I didn't copy+pasted all return list, but only first and last summing result...

Just to prove that benchmark for this task is wrong idea, here are results on my PC. :
Marko, can you repeat the test without (prin1 ) ?

I agree with "benchmarking is tricky  ", I wanted to add that it can also vary with the CAD software. Perhaps the "Bruno_F" function is worthy of evaluation ...

As you can see, I was perhaps wrong for 1000x1000 matrix and 1 second, but my function is indeed faster than Ron's - testing sample done at 50x50 matrix... For spacing issues, I didn't copy+pasted all return list, but only first and last summing result...

Strange .. when I run the test you created 'c:rjpfoounfoldmatrix' with 50x50 speed is waaay faster than what you posted (AutoCAD 2021)

Thank you for benchmarking guys.

My nested recursion has failed in speed.  I can't even benchmark it along with your great codes.

Nonetheless, it is fun to solve and see everyone's creativity in approaching the problem.

I wanted to add that it can also vary with the CAD software.
(BRUNO_F MLIST) is doing
524288 iterations for 1266 ms on Bricscad
and
32768 iterations for 1094 ms on Acad

looks like Bricscad is almost 14 times faster
cool

Considering results from my PC, I somehow don't believe to yours Ron... But IMHO, if OP would need matrix more than 50x50 elements I guess he is in nasty problems with his job... Around 1 second is very acceptable timing for a PC and this task... And like I said all proposed functions are good and suitable for this task and I agree with Stefan and his perception...
So my kudos go to Stefan 1+.

Considering results from my PC, I somehow don't believe to yours Ron...
Yeah the numbers seem strange to me too but I'm just running the test you put together.

Windows 10 x64 - AutoCAD /C3D 2020

Thank you everyone for your contribution!
Indeed I was (and I'm still) busy in real life, agreed that it seems somewhat discrespectful for not replying on time.
Could've spent a few days figuring it out myself, but then I thought it may be better to post it here -
after all the task is related to a bit challenging list manipulation, while I knew I could rely on some of you.
Personally I don't get mad at the times when I provide a solution to an non-replying OP (like in this thread) rather just letting it sink in the web.
Surely I had the time to reply with just "thanks", which would seem more rude for me instead of non-replying -
because its like someone hands you a cigarette: while for a quick question it might be ok, for an algorithmic solution its not.

BTW I do code in my free time as an aside hobby (not making any \$ out of it, but maybe as a part-time draughtsman - which is still not alot),
so not solving anything particular for a client - its more like a self-development thing.

My grid is max around 12x12, but we all agree that more and faster is better.
...nobody dropped the million dollar question for the potential usage of this sub.
(apply ''((a b c)(a b c))
'(
(( f L ) (apply 'strcat (f L)))
(( L ) (if L (cons (chr (car L)) (f (cdr L)))))
(72 101 108 108 111 32 87 111 114 108 100)
)

Thank you for your response.
May i ask the application of this?  Do you need only 2x2 square?

I was writing some distributed scattering...
(apply ''((a b c)(a b c))
'(
(( f L ) (apply 'strcat (f L)))
(( L ) (if L (cons (chr (car L)) (f (cdr L)))))
