I have an array of 100000 integers in a listed form and don't have commas separating them. what's the easiest way to put commas at the end of each number. example of how the array is listed
[1234
234
3654
48356
51235]
the numbers are from 1 to 100000 and no number is repeated. i want to place commas at the ends so that it looks like this
[1234,
234,
3654,
48356,
5123]
do I have to put the commas there manually or there's an easier way cos the array is too huge. :/

I'm using notepad++ so if you know a shortcut to doing this please let me know, I've already started putting commas there one after the other but it's going to take too much time :/ i don't need a program to do this, I just want the easiest way to put the commas there in the text editor.

Tell me exactly what it is and what you need Is it an array and you want as a string

it is an array of 100 thousand integers, but there's no comma after each integer so if i write a program to deal with the array, it assumes the array is only the first integer and ignores the rest and actually gives me an error because it expects "]" after the first integer. I need an easier way to put commas after each integer to include them in the array.

[1234 234 3654 48356 51235] is the same as [1234 234 3654 48356 51235] but in arrays, you use commas to separate the objects, not a space, so the program reads the array as an error. i want to put commas so that the array becomes [1234, 234, 3654, 48356, 51235]

but there's too many integers, so i'm only asking for an easier way to put the commas, not sure if you get my point :/

if these are separated by lines, then there's probably a oneliner python solution. http://ideone.com/52nka

You can probably record a macro (I'm unfamiliar with how it's done in notepad++) that goes after each 'word' (each number); appending a comma to the end.

I know of the .join array function but it will only output it in the shell, if only i could do it somewhere i could copy and paste, then i'd do that with ruby and copy all the numbers... :/

Is \n for new line character? Why'd you used three double quotes?
 2 years ago

agdgdgdgwngoBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
I used 3 quotes because they allow you to enter multiple lines of data into the string, and they preserve newlines and stuff; maybe the single pair of quotes will be alright too lets try: http://ideone.com/utOdJ nope :(

Oh, so what is .join function for and lambda (does it have something to do with lambda calculus you used to talk about a few months back)?
 2 years ago

agdgdgdgwngoBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
the join method appends the thing to the right of the dot (an empty string in this case) to every element of the iterable on the right of the dot (a list of characters) the lambda keyword creates an anonymous function (really an expression in Python); lambda x, y: z is effectively equivalent to def something(x, y): return z but it won't be called 'something' unless you do something like something = lambda x,y: z I don't think it has anything to do with lambda calculus :P

appends the object to the left* of the dot... sorry :P

it didn't work with my source code cos ideone also see's my array as invalid and gives me an error so i'm using ur python source and replacing the sample array with the actual one to see how it comes out if u don't mind me using it :/

i need the array well in place before my program will work, i didn't want to type the commas manually before running the program so... yeah :) my program works fine with other arrays though, i just need to run it on this array which is one heck of a waste of time putting commas..

What do you think would be size of this digit '82586' in bytes? 2?
 2 years ago

Ishaan94Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
5 wow, most of the digits are 5 digits in your list or array... mean size must be around 4.8, I guess... 4.8 * 100,000 = 480,000 bits of information on your RAM
 2 years ago

sasogeekBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
lol i'm only saying 5 bits cos i know every number represents a bit... you typed 5 numbers... i presume that to be 5 bits, i don't know for sure but that's what i'll tell anyone who ask's me, from the fair knowledge i have. i won't conclude on that though but yeah :)
 2 years ago

Ishaan94Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
but I don't think it works that way, I think RAM stores it in the form of integer and an integer occupies like 2 bytes... so 200,000 bytes of information.

just use find & replace function of notepad++ (or any other editor has that function too) since it's seperated by new line, you search for "\n" (which means new line) and replace it to ",\n" (comma and new line) and you don't need to bother with programming :D
