#5106043 help with python - write class similar to defaultdict

Posted by on 31 October 2013 - 02:17 PM



Hi, I am new to python and trying to write a class similar to to the defaultdict class.

I am little stuck on the constructor. On the python website example they first create a the defaultdict object with type as parameter, and then fill it. Example d = defaultdict(list) and then input "key,value"


If I directly pass "s" when creating object, it seems to be fine, but how can I make it similar to how it's really implemented. Thanks for help!

class MyDictionary(dict): #Parent class is "dict"
    'This is a derived class from python dict'
    def __init__(self, default_factory=None): # implement the parameters correctly
        dict.__init__(self, default_factory)
        #self.default_factory = default_factory
    #def anotherMethod-ToDo-forexmaple-d[10],handle if key doesn't exist
s = [('yellow', 1), ('blue', 2), ('yellow', 3), ('blue', 4), ('red', 1)]
d = MyDictionary(list)
for k, v in s:
print (d.items())

#5073046 simple char array, please help

Posted by on 26 June 2013 - 02:13 PM

Hi, I am trying to simple return a string but I get this error:

In function 'getNetworkAtPriority':

warning: function returns address of local variable
In function 'main':
error: incompatible types in assignment


Please help what I am doing wrong? thanks

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string.h>

char * getNetworkAtPriority( )
    char returnValue[14];
    sprintf( returnValue, "mcc-mnc-umts");
    return returnValue;

int main()
    char entry1[14];
    entry1 = getNetworkAtPriority( "1" );

    return 0;

another thing that works is to manually change the extension to something else (like .txt) and send it over the email. Tell your friends to change the extension back from .txt to .exe. There is no data loss and is quick.

#4874366 Simple bit masking operations

Posted by on 19 October 2011 - 10:28 AM

Hi all,
So i am a little weak in all this bits stuff..

So far I realized that if I want to see if a particular bit is set...
for variable n, to see if kth bit is set, I will
unsigned n = ...
if ((1 << k) & n)
bit set...
not set...

Now for example I have a variable n, and I want to set its 10th bit to 1, how do I do that? Will I need to check first, or can I just force it to be 1 in a single expression?

One of my favorites:


Put the above 8x8 matrix in the text file. Starting at the first A, write a generic program to find a way from the the A in the first column to the A in the last column. Of course, you'll have to assume that there are no loops and first and last row only has one A each to keep it simple. At the end you must print out the number of A's to get to the end. Recursion is a very important concept and I think this is a very good exercise for that.
