Task
Parsing/RPN calculator algorithm
You are encouraged to solve this task according to the task description, using any language you may know.
Task

Create a stack-based evaluator for an expression in   reverse Polish notation (RPN)   that also shows the changes in the stack as each individual token is processed as a table.


  • Assume an input of a correct, space separated, string of tokens of an RPN expression
  • Test with the RPN expression generated from the   Parsing/Shunting-yard algorithm   task:

        3 4 2 * 1 5 - 2 3 ^ ^ / +

  • Print or display the output here


Notes
  •   ^   means exponentiation in the expression above.
  •   /   means division.

Fortran

Since the project is to demonstrate the workings of the scheme to evaluate a RPN text sequence, and the test example contains only single-digit numbers and single-character operators, there is no need to escalate to reading full integers or floating-point numbers, the code for which would swamp the details of the RPN evaluator. As a result, it is easy to scan the text via a DO-loop that works one character at a time since there is no backstepping, probing ahead, nor multi-symbol items that must be combined into a single "token" with states that must be remembered from one character to the next. With multi-character tokens, the scan would be changed to invocations of NEXTTOKEN that would lurch ahead accordingly.

The method is simple (the whole point of RPN) and the function prints a schedule of actions at each step. Possibly this semi-tabular output is what is meant by "as a table". Conveniently, all the operators take two operands and return one, so the SP accountancy can be shared. Unlike ! for example.

The source style is essentially F77 except for the trivial use of the PARAMETER statement, and CYCLE to GO TO the end of the loop when a space is encountered. With the introduction of unfixed-format source style came also the possible use of semicolons to cram more than one statement part on a line so that the CASE and its action statement can be spread across the page rather than use two lines in alternation: for this case a tabular layout results that is easier to read and check. Because the F90 MODULE protocol is not used, the function's type should be declared in the calling routine but the default type suffices.<lang Fortran> REAL FUNCTION EVALRP(TEXT) !Evaluates a Reverse Polish string.

J

This task's operations are all dyadic - having two arguments. So on each step we may either "shift" a number to the stack or "reduce" two topmost stack items to one.

Our implementation will be a monadic verb: it will take a single argument, which contains both the accumulated stack and the tokens to be processed. First, create initial state of the input: <lang J> a: , <;._1 ' ' , '3 4 2 * 1 5 - 2 3 ^ ^ / +' ┌┬─┬─┬─┬─┬─┬─┬─┬─┬─┬─┬─┬─┬─┐ ││3│4│2│*│1│5│-│2│3│^│^│/│+│ └┴─┴─┴─┴─┴─┴─┴─┴─┴─┴─┴─┴─┴─┘</lang> As an example, let's also add monadic operation _ which inverses the sign of the stack top element.

We're going to read tokens from input one by one. Each time we read a token, we're checking if it's a number - in this case we put the number to the stack - or an operation - in this case we apply the operation to the stack. The monad which returns 1 (true) for a token representing an operation and 0 (false) otherwise is "isOp". The dyad, which moves an input token to the stack, is "doShift". Applying the operation to the stack is "doApply".

There are 6 operations - one monadic "_" and five dyadic "+", "-", "*", "/", "^". For operation, we need to translate input token into operation and apply it to the stack. The dyad which converts the input token to the operation is "dispatch". It uses two miscellaneous adverbs, one for monadic operations - "mo" - and another for dyadic - "dy".

The RPN driver is the monad "consume", which handles one token. The output is the state of the program after the token was consumed - stack in the 0th box, and remaining input afterwards. As a side effect, "consume" is going to print the resulting stack, so running "consume" once for each token will produce intermediate states of the stack. <lang J> isOp=: '_+-*/^' e.~ {.@>@{.

  mo=: 1 :'(}: , u@{:) @ ['

Alternate Implementation

<lang J>rpn=: 3 :0

 queue=. |.3 :'|.3 :y 0'::]each;: y
 op=. 1 :'2 (u~/@:{.,}.)S:0 ,@]'
 ops=. +op`(-op)`(*op)`(%op)`(^op)`(,&;)
 choose=. ((;:'+-*/^')&i.@[)
 ,ops@.choose/queue

)</lang>

Example use:

<lang J> rpn '3 4 2 * 1 5 - 2 3 ^ ^ / +' 3.00012</lang>

To see intermediate result stacks, use this variant (the only difference is the definition of 'op'):

<lang J>rpnD=: 3 :0

 queue=. |.3 :'|.3 :y 0'::]each;: y
 op=. 1 :'2 (u~/@:{.,}.)S:0 ,@([smoutput)@]'
 ops=. +op`(-op)`(*op)`(%op)`(^op)`(,&;)
 choose=. ((;:'+-*/^')&i.@[)
 ,ops@.choose/queue

)</lang>

In other words:

<lang J> rpnD '3 4 2 * 1 5 - 2 3 ^ ^ / +' ┌─────┐ │2 4 3│ └─────┘ 5 1 8 3 3 2 _4 8 3 8 _4 8 3 65536 8 3 0.00012207 3 3.00012</lang>

Note that the seed stack is boxed while computed stacks are not. Note that top of stack here is on the left. Note also that adjacent constants are bundled in the parsing phase. Finally, note that the result of rpn (and of rpnD - lines previous to the last line in the rpnD example here are output and not a part of the result) is the final state of the stack - in the general case it may not contain exactly one value.

   .SYNOPSIS
       A stack-based evaluator for an expression in reverse Polish notation.
   .DESCRIPTION
       A stack-based evaluator for an expression in reverse Polish notation.
       All methods in the Math and Decimal classes are available.
   .PARAMETER Expression
       A space separated, string of tokens.
   .PARAMETER DisplayState
       This switch shows the changes in the stack as each individual token is processed as a table.
   .EXAMPLE
       Invoke-Rpn -Expression "3 4 Max"
   .EXAMPLE
       Invoke-Rpn -Expression "3 4 Log2"
   .EXAMPLE
       Invoke-Rpn -Expression "3 4 2 * 1 5 - 2 3 ^ ^ / +"

version 3 (error checking)

This REXX version is the same as above, but also checks for various errors and allows more operators:

  •   checks for illegal operator
  •   checks for illegal number
  •   checks for illegal bit (logical) values
  •   checks for malformed RPN expression
  •   checks for division by zero
  •   allows alternative exponentiation symbol   **
  •   allows logical operations   &   &&   |
  •   allows alternative division symbol   ÷
  •   allows integer division   %
  •   allows remainder division   //
  •   allows concatenation   ||
