D Programming – Arrays

One of the concepts I love is arrays. I really like putting values inside one container. Feels like cheating and magic at the same time. It can store values and even variables, it can also be one-dimensional or multi-dimensional, and it just solves many problems.

Below is the code for declaring and accessing arrays:

import std.stdio;

int main(){
	int numbers[4] = [5,1,3,10];
	int sum = 0;
	
	for(int i = 0; i<numbers.length; i++){
		sum+= numbers[i];
	}
	
	writeln("The sum is ", sum);
	
	return 0;
}

Here is the output:

 

d-arrays

D Programming – Input

Good Day, I was to talking to little kid this morning and he was asking me what color is the best. Every time I said a color he always answered “Really? (color)?”
What’s your favorite color? Yellow
Really? Yello?

haha, his expression made his annoying answer funny.

I adapated that kid to my program here showing basic input of string in D language.

Here is my annoying kid asking for colors program:

import std.stdio;
import std.string;

int main(){
	string input = "";
	
	write("What is your favorite color? ");
	input = strip(stdin.readln());
	
	writeln("Really? ", input, "?");
	return 0;
}

Here is the output:

d-input

D – Programming (Strings)

In programming, Strings are group of characters and they are not those strands of fiber that we tie knots or tie somebody’s neck. I often introduce students to this concept by making them count the letters of their name and resite them in reverse. Quite really fun at times. πŸ™‚

Below is a code that shows string initialization and concatenation:

import std.stdio;

int main(){
	string fname = "Mark";
	string lname = "Hay";
	
	writeln("Hello ", fname, " ", lname);
	
	return 0;
}

Here is the output:

d-strings

D Programming – While Loop

Hello there, below is a program that show a basic while loop. It is very much like the syntax of C++ and Java. It is really good to remember the parts of a loop like the starting value, end statement and the operation of increment or decrement. Enjoy! πŸ™‚

import std.stdio;

int main(){
	int i = 0;
	
	while(i<11){
		writeln(i);
		i++;
	}
	
	return 0;
}

Here is the output:

d-while

D Programming – Loops(For Loop)

Most of the time, students get confused of the usage of looping. I always say, “Imagine a block of code that prints 10 consecutive numbers. One way of doing it is by printing them one-by-one. That would be easy if printing 10 numbers is the case but if your program needs to print 1000 numbers then that would be a very long program just for printing. The answer to that problem is looping. If you use a loop, you just define a starting point, a condition of where you are going to stop, and the process if it is increasing or decreasing. A block of 1000 codes would just take three to four lines of codes.”

 

In this program we are going to use a loop called a for loop. I used a variable x to hold the value that will be printed then I declared the starting value and ending value which are inside the range.

Below is my program.

import std.stdio;

int main(){
	
	for(int i = 0; i<11; i++){
		writeln(i);
	}
	
	return 0;
}

 

Here is my output:

d-for

D Programming – If Statement

Most of the time, every programmer hasΒ the need to compare on or two values of variables in your program. Same as most of the programming languages, Python also has its syntax for the If Statement. In this article, I created a program that uses an if statement after the variables x, and y are declared. I assigned values 10 and 5 to variables x and y respectively.

The program is below:

import std.stdio;

int main(){
	int x = 10, y = 5;
	
	if(x > y){
		write("x is greater than y");
	}
	return 0;
}

Your output should be the same as here:
x is greater than y

Python – GUI (Grid Layout)

In this tutorial, I will be demonstrating Graphical User Interface
Programming using Python.

The codes are below:

 

gui2

 

 

Our output should be the same as below:

 

gui1

 

 

Explanation:

 

These lines:

Label(master, text=”Name:”).grid(row=0)
Label(master, text=”Age:”).grid(row=1)

– one way of declaring one or more labels and giving them their position in the grid

While these lines:

E1 = Entry(master)
E2 = Entry(master)

E1.grid(row=0, column=1)
E2.grid(row=1, column=1)

-another way of declaring one or more textboxes then giving their position in separate lines.

 

Thank you for reading this post.
