Parsing expressions - xset - 09-15-2015 06:11 AM


I wanted to explode expression like X^2 + 5 to the list of {operation,firstOP,secondOP}, i found i can do it in CAS window with "at" special syntax like 'X^2+5'[1 +-].

It rewrites it as at('X^2+5',0) and gives answer _x -> _x (looks like lambda).
'X^2+5'[2 +-] gives x^2
'X^2+5'[3 +-] gives 5

There is no really 'at' function and this code does not work in program.

So, question is: how to parse expressions ? If there some command like OBJ-> from 50g ?

Many many thanks anyway!

In CAS mode you can use part():


The following CAS program could be a starting point for what you want:

  LOCAL k,l;
  FOR k FROM 0 TO part(f) DO
  return l;

OMG! What a beautiful syntax, kinda functional!
Thank you! You are Wizard !

Cmd line works but obj just returns 0.

on android prime emulator.

The android emu is basically equivalent at this moment to the version from dec 2014. The "part" command was added in 2015 I believe.
