Playing with numbers: Number range creatorPlaying with numbers: Number range creator Mercutio Tue, 2011-05-24 19:17
In this post we created a function that will change a set of number ranges into a simple list of numbers. But what if we wanted to do it the other way around!?
So, if we have the following list:
5 7 8 9 3 6 12 13 14
How do we get to:
3 5-9 12-14
One way of doing this, as taken from M*U*S*H's snippet machine in #0, is the following:
&ATTR1 OBJ=trim(fold(me/ATTR2,unique(sort(%0,n)))) &ATTR2 OBJ=if(eq(%1,inc(last(last(%0),-))),strcat(extract(%0,1,dec(words(%0))),%b,first(last(%0),-),-,%1),%0 %1)
How would you do this?
