Common sorted list

From Rosetta Code
Common sorted list 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.

Given an integer array nums, the goal is create common sorted list with unique elements.


Example

nums = [5,1,3,8,9,4,8,7], [3,5,9,8,4], [1,3,7,9]

output = [1,3,4,5,7,8,9]

11l[edit]

F csl(nums)
   Set[Int] r
   L(num) nums
      r.update(num)
   R sorted(Array(r))

print(csl([[5, 1, 3, 8, 9, 4, 8, 7], [3, 5, 9, 8, 4], [1, 3, 7, 9]]))
Output:
[1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9]

AppleScript[edit]

use AppleScript version "2.4" -- OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) or later
use framework "Foundation"

local nums, output

set nums to current application's class "NSArray"'s arrayWithArray:({{5, 1, 3, 8, 9, 4, 8, 7}, {3, 5, 9, 8, 4}, {1, 3, 7, 9}})
set output to (nums's valueForKeyPath:("@distinctUnionOfArrays.self"))'s sortedArrayUsingSelector:("compare:")
return output as list
Output:
{1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9}


Or, as a composition of slightly more commonly-used generic functions (given that distinctUnionOfArrays is a relatively specialised function, while concat/flatten and nub/distinct are more atomic, and more frequently reached for):

use AppleScript version "2.4"
use framework "Foundation"

LAMBDA[edit]

Binding the name COMMONSORTED to the following lambda expression in the Name Manager of the Excel WorkBook:

(See LAMBDA: The ultimate Excel worksheet function)

COMMONSORTED
=LAMBDA(grid,
    SORT(
        UNIQUE(
            CONCATCOLS(grid)
        )
    )
)

and also assuming the following generic bindings in the Name Manager for the WorkBook:

CONCATCOLS
=LAMBDA(cols,
    LET(
        nRows, ROWS(cols),
        ixs, SEQUENCE(
            COLUMNS(cols) * nRows, 1,
            1, 1
        ),

        FILTERP(
            LAMBDA(x, 0 < LEN("" & x))
        )(
            INDEX(cols,
                LET(
                    r, MOD(ixs, nRows),

                    IF(0 = r, nRows, r)
                ),
                1 + QUOTIENT(ixs - 1, nRows)
            )
        )
    )
)


FILTERP
=LAMBDA(p,
    LAMBDA(xs,
        FILTER(xs, p(xs))
    )
)

The formula in cell B2 defines a dynamic array of values, additionally populating further cells in column B.

Output:
fx =COMMONSORTED(C2:E9)
A B C D E
1 Common sorted
2 1 5 3 1

jq[edit]

Works with: jq

Works with gojq, the Go implementation of jq

Assuming the input is a single array of arrays, we can simply chain the `add` and `unique` filters:

jq -nc '[[5,1,3,8,9,4,8,7], [3,5,9,8,4], [1,3,7,9]] | add | unique'
Output:
[1,3,4,5,7,8,9]

If the arrays are presented individually in an external stream, we could use the `-s` command-line option.

Alternatively, here's a stream-oriented version of `add` that could be used:

def add(s): reduce s as $x (null; . + $x);

For example:

jq -nc '
    def add(s): reduce s as $x (null; . + $x);
    add(inputs) | unique' <<< '[5,1,3,8,9,4,8,7] [3,5,9,8,4] [1,3,7,9]'

Julia[edit]

Nim[edit]

We could use a HashSet or an IntSet to deduplicate. We have rather chosen to use the procedure deduplicate from module sequtils applied to the sorted list.

import algorithm, sequtils

proc commonSortedList(list: openArray[seq[int]]): seq[int] =
  sorted(concat(list)).deduplicate(true)

echo commonSortedList([@[5,1,3,8,9,4,8,7], @[3,5,9,8,4], @[1,3,7,9]])
Output:
@[1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9]

Perl[edit]

@c{@$_}++ for [5,1,3,8,9,4,8,7], [3,5,9,8,4], [1,3,7,9];
print join ' ', sort keys %c;
@c{@$_}++ for [qw<not all is integer ? is not ! 4.2>];
print join ' ', sort keys %c;
Output:
1 3 4 5 7 8 9
! 1 3 4 4.2 5 7 8 9 ? all integer is not

Phix[edit]

Library: Phix/basics
?unique(join({{5,1,3,8,9,4,8,7}, {3,5,9,8,4}, {1,3,7,9}, split("not everything is an integer")},{}))

Note the join(x,{}): the 2nd param is needed to prevent it putting 32 (ie the acsii code for a space) in the output.

Output:

(Unexpectedly rather Yoda-esque)

{1,3,4,5,7,8,9,"an","everything","integer","is","not"}
