Find first missing positive

Given an integer array nums   (which may or may not be sorted),   find the smallest missing positive integer.

Find first missing positive is a draft programming task. It is not yet considered ready to be promoted as a complete task, for reasons that should be found in its talk page.
Task


Example
  •    nums  =   [1,2,0], [3,4,-1,1], [7,8,9,11,12]
  •   output =   3, 2, 1



11lEdit

V nums = [[1, 2, 0], [3, 4, -1, 1], [7, 8, 9, 11, 12]]

L(l) nums
   L(n) 1..
      I n !C l
         print(l‘ -> ’n)
         L.break
Output:
[1, 2, 0] -> 3
[3, 4, -1, 1] -> 2
[7, 8, 9, 11, 12] -> 1

ALGOL 68Edit

Uses the observation in the J sample that the maximum possible minimum missing positive integer is one more than the length of the list.

BEGIN # find the lowest positive integer not present in various arrays #
    # returns the lowest positive integer not present in r #
    PROC min missing positive = ( []INT r )INT:
         BEGIN
            []INT a = r[ AT 1 ]; # a is r wih lower bound 1 #
            # as noted in the J sample, the maximum possible minimum #
            # missing positive integer is one more than the length of the array # 
            # note the values between 1 and UPB a present in a #
            [ 1 : UPB a ]BOOL present;
            FOR i TO UPB a DO present[ i ] := FALSE OD;
            FOR i TO UPB a DO 
                INT ai = a[ i ];
                IF ai >= 1 AND ai <= UPB a THEN
                    present[ ai ] := TRUE
                FI
            OD;
            # find the lowest value not in present #
            INT result := UPB a + 1;
            BOOL found := FALSE;
            FOR i TO UPB a WHILE NOT found DO
                IF NOT present[ i ] THEN
                    found  := TRUE;
                    result := i
                FI
            OD;
            result
         END # min missing positive # ;
     print( ( " ", whole( min missing positive( ( 1, 2,  0         ) ), 0 ) ) );
     print( ( " ", whole( min missing positive( ( 3, 4, -1,  1     ) ), 0 ) ) );

HaskellEdit

Translation of: Wren
import Data.List (sort)

task :: Integral a => [a] -> a
task = go . (0 :) . sort . filter (> 0)
  where
    go [x] = succ x
    go (w : xs@(x : _))
      | x == succ w = go xs
      | otherwise = succ w


main :: IO ()
main =
  print $
    map
      task
      [[1, 2, 0], [3, 4, -1, 1], [7, 8, 9, 11, 12]]
Output:
[3,2,1]


Or simply as a filter over an infinite list:

---------- FIRST MISSING POSITIVE NATURAL NUMBER ---------

firstGap :: [Int] -> Int
firstGap xs = head $ filter (`notElem` xs) [1 ..]


--------------------------- TEST -------------------------
main :: IO ()
main =
  (putStrLn . unlines) $
    fmap
      (\xs -> show xs <> " -> " <> (show . firstGap) xs)
      [ [1, 2, 0],
        [3, 4, -1, 1],
        [7, 8, 9, 11, 12]
      ]

and if xs were large, it could be defined as a set:

import Data.Set (fromList, notMember)

---------- FIRST MISSING POSITIVE NATURAL NUMBER ---------

firstGap :: [Int] -> Int
firstGap xs = head $ filter (`notMember` seen) [1 ..]
  where
    seen = fromList xs
Output:

Same output for notElem and notMember versions above:

[1,2,0] -> 3
[3,4,-1,1] -> 2
[7,8,9,11,12] -> 1

JEdit

The first missing positive can be no larger than 1 plus the length of the list, thus:

fmp=: {{ {.y-.~1+i.1+#y }}S:0

(The {{ }} delimiters on definitions, used here, was introduced in J version 9.2)

Example use:

   fmp 1 2 0;3 4 _1 1; 7 8 9 11 12
3 2 1

Also, with this approach:

   fmp 'abc'
1

jqEdit

Works with: jq

Works with gojq, the Go implementation of jq

In case the target array is very long, it probably makes sense either to sort it, or to use a hash, for quick lookup. For the sake of illustration, we'll use a hash:

# input: an array of integers
def first_missing_positive:
  INDEX(.[]; tostring) as $dict
  | first(range(1; infinite)
          | . as $n
	  | select($dict|has($n|tostring)|not) ) ;

def examples:
 [1,2,0], [3,4,-1,1], [7,8,9,11,12], [-5, -2, -6, -1];

# The task:
examples
| "\(first_missing_positive) is missing from \(.)"
Output:
3 is missing from [1,2,0]
2 is missing from [3,4,-1,1]
1 is missing from [7,8,9,11,12]
1 is missing from [-5,-2,-6,-1]

JuliaEdit

for array in [[1,2,0], [3,4,-1,1], [7,8,9,11,12], [-5, -2, -6, -1]]
    for n in 1:typemax(Int)
        !(n in array) && (println("$array  =>  $n"); break)
    end
end
Output:
[1, 2, 0]  =>  3
[3, 4, -1, 1]  =>  2
[7, 8, 9, 11, 12]  =>  1
[-5, -2, -6, -1]  =>  1

NimEdit

Translation of: Julia

In order to avoid the O(n) search in arrays, we could use an intermediate set built from the sequence. But this is useless with the chosen examples.

for a in [@[1, 2, 0], @[3, 4, -1, 1], @[7, 8, 9, 11, 12], @[-5, -2, -6, -1]]:
  for n in 1..int.high:
    if n notin a:
      echo a, " → ", n
      break
Output:
@[1, 2, 0] → 3
@[3, 4, -1, 1] → 2
@[7, 8, 9, 11, 12] → 1
@[-5, -2, -6, -1] → 1

QuackeryEdit

Using a bitmap as a setEdit

Treat a number (BigInt) as a set of integers. Add the positive integers to the set, then find the first positive integer not in the set.

  [ 0 0 rot
    witheach
      [ dup 0 > iff
          [ bit | ]
        else drop ]
    [ dip 1+
      1 >> dup 1 &
      0 = until ]
    drop ]          is task ( [ --> n )

  ' [ [ 1 2 0 ] [ 3 4 -1 1 ] [ 7 8 9 11 12 ] ]

  witheach [ task echo sp ]
Output:
3 2 1

Using filtering and sortingEdit

Filter out the non-positive integers, and then non-unique elements (after adding zero).

uniquewith is defined at Remove duplicate elements#Quackery and conveniently sorts the nest.

Then hunt for the first item which does not have the same value as its index. If they all have the same values as their indices, the missing integer is the same as the size of the processed nest.

  [ [] swap
    witheach
      [ dup 0 > iff
          join
        else drop ]
    0 join
    uniquewith >
    dup size swap
    witheach
      [ i^ != if
         [ drop i^
           conclude ] ] ] is task ( [ --> n )

  ' [ [ 1 2 0 ] [ 3 4 -1 1 ] [ 7 8 9 11 12 ] ]

  witheach [ task echo sp ]
Output:
3 2 1

Brute forceEdit

Search for each integer. The largest the missing integer can be is one more than the number of items in the nest.

  [ dup size
    dup 1+ unrot
    times
      [ i^ 1+
        over find
        over found not if
          [ dip
              [ drop i^ 1+ ]
            conclude ] ]
     drop ]                  is task ( [ --> n )

  ' [ [ 1 2 0 ] [ 3 4 -1 1 ] [ 7 8 9 11 12 ] ]

  witheach [ task echo sp ]
Output:
3 2 1

REXXEdit

This REXX version doesn't need to sort the elements of the sets,   it uses an associated array.

/*REXX program finds the smallest missing positive integer in a given list of integers. */
parse arg a                                      /*obtain optional arguments from the CL*/

                         "[-6,-5,-2,-1]  [5,-5]  [-2]  [1]  []"    /*maybe use defaults.*/
say 'the smallest missing positive integer for the following sets is:'
say
    do j=1  for words(a)                         /*process each set  in  a list of sets.*/
    set= translate( word(a, j), ,'],[')          /*extract   a   "  from "   "   "   "  */
    #= words(set)                                /*obtain the number of elements in set.*/
    @.= .                                        /*assign default value for set elements*/
           do k=1  for #;  x= word(set, k)       /*obtain a set element  (an integer).  */
           @.x= x                                /*assign it to a sparse array.         */
           end   /*k*/

           do m=1  for #  until @.m==.           /*now, search for the missing integer. */
           end   /*m*/
    if @.m==''  then m= 1                        /*handle the case of a  "null"  set.   */
    say right( word(a, j), 40)   ' ───► '   m    /*show the set and the missing integer.*/
    end          /*j*/                           /*stick a fork in it,  we're all done. */
output   when using the default inputs:
the smallest missing positive integer for the following sets is:
