Subject [jira] [Commented] (MATH-1130) A new set of functions for copyof, remove and replace a given value on a slice of array
Date Fri, 27 Jun 2014 10:45:26 GMT


Gilles commented on MATH-1130:

bq. now will put \[perf related tests\] in say EqualsTestPerf which does not get into main

"EqualsTestPerf" is useless since the code in CM's trunk is now the same as the one being
compared to in that class.

Moreover, it is generally misleading to just time a tight loop that executes an "elementary"

bq. Do you need patches which can be serially applied in an order OR each patch file strictly
independent of each other?

Preferably: Independent patches for independent changes. :)
Or the smallest possible patch (containing only the changes agreed on during the discussion)...

> These are utility functions mostly required as part of MathArrays.
> MathArrays:
> =============
> The requirement is as follows:
> a) double[] copyOf(double[] values, int begin, int length) ;
> Similar to most other functions that support slice defined  by  the array part from [begin,
begin+length) ;its a requirement to copy a slice which is not available (the closest is copyOf(array,
int len) which misses out the begin index)
> b) double[] removeAll(double[] values, int begin, int length, double removable);
> Need a function to remove a value from array slice defined by [begin,begin+length) and
return the filtered version.
> c) double[] replaceAll(double[] values, int begin, int length, double oldValue, double
> Need a function to replace inplace an oldValue substituted with newValue in the array
slice defined by [begin,begin+length) and return the original  complete array with just replaced
values only in the segment [begin,begin+length)
> MathUtils
> =========
> boolean canEqual(double d1, double d2) ;
> provide a canEqual function that is slightly better than exisitng MathUtils.equals. We
could also improve existing equals method however.
> So the change here is that the new enhanced canEqual can do a quick check on Nans  and
then move to a detailed method. This avoids the call when
any one of them is NaN.
