Dear all,
I just found a *very* annoying bug in axiom's handling of
parallel iteration:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(1) -> [[i,j] for i in 1..10 | odd? i for j in 1..10]
(1) [[1,1],[3,3],[5,5],[7,7],[9,9]]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(the result is the same in SPAD, i.e., compiled)
instead of
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
%1 >> #include "aldor"
Comp: 170
msec, Interp: 50 msec
%2 >> #include "aldorinterp"
Comp: 80
msec, Interp: 0 msec
%3 >> import from Integer, List Integer, List List
Integer
Comp: 60
msec, Interp: 0 msec
%4 >> [[i,j] for i in 1..10 | odd? i for j in 1..10]
[[1,1],[3,2],[5,3],[7,4],[9,5]] @
List(List(AldorInteger))
Comp: 10
msec, Interp: 340 msec
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I insist on calling this a bug, *not* because of my
personal preference of
aldor semantics, but because axiom wastes an opportunity
here, since the result
given by axiom is quite useless.
It seems that axiom applies the "such-that" clause to all
iterators, rather
than only to the iterator after which it comes. To be
fair, aldor has a
similar problem: it applies the "such-that" clause to
*all* iterators before,
with no way to group iterators:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
%5 >> [[i,j] for i in 1..10 for j in 1..10 | odd? i]
[[1,1],[3,3],[5,5],[7,7],[9,9]] @
List(List(AldorInteger))
Comp: 10
msec, Interp: 40 msec
%6 >> [[i,j] for i in 1..10 | odd? i for j in 1..10 |
even? j]
[[3,2],[7,4]] @ List(List(AldorInteger))
Comp: 10
msec, Interp: 40 msec
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I would have thought that parenthesis or braces would
group iterators, but they
yield syntax errors instead.
Any hope? I.e., what I want is:
* group iterators with parens or braces
* apply such-that clauses to all iterators that come
before, and are in the
same group
