# Middle three digits

Middle three digits
You are encouraged to solve this task according to the task description, using any language you may know.

Write a function/procedure/subroutine that is called with an integer value and returns the middle three digits of the integer if possible or a clear indication of an error if this is not possible.

Note: The order of the middle digits should be preserved.

Your function should be tested with the following values; the first line should return valid answers, those of the second line should return clear indications of an error:

```123, 12345, 1234567, 987654321, 10001, -10001, -123, -100, 100, -12345
1, 2, -1, -10, 2002, -2002, 0
```

## AppleScript

### Procedural

987654321 is too large to be represented as an AppleScript integer, so "integer value" is taken here to refer to the numeric value rather than to the language class. AppleScript automatically coerces numeric text and single-item lists to appropriate number classes where necessary and possible, so these are acceptable as parameters too.

<lang applescript>on middle3Digits(n)

```   try
n as number -- Errors if n isn't a number or coercible thereto.
set s to n as text -- Keep for the ouput string.
if (n mod 1 is not 0) then error (s & " isn't an integer value.")
if (n < 0) then set n to -n
if (n < 100) then error (s & " has fewer than three digits.")
-- Coercing large numbers to text may result in E notation, so extract the digit values individually.
set theDigits to {}
repeat until (n = 0)
set beginning of theDigits to n mod 10 as integer
set n to n div 10
end repeat
set c to (count theDigits)
if (c mod 2 is 0) then error (s & " has an even number of digits.")
on error errMsg
return "middle3Digits handler got an error: " & errMsg
end try
set i to (c - 3) div 2 + 1
set {x, y, z} to items i thru (i + 2) of theDigits

return "The middle three digits of " & s & " are " & ((x as text) & y & z & ".")
```

end middle3Digits

-- Test code: set testNumbers to {123, 12345, 1234567, "987654321", "987654321" as number, 10001, -10001, -123, -100, 100, -12345, 1, 2, -1, -10, 2002, -2002, 0} set output to {} repeat with thisNumber in testNumbers

```   set end of output to middle3Digits(thisNumber)
```

end repeat set astid to AppleScript's text item delimiters set AppleScript's text item delimiters to linefeed set output to output as text set AppleScript's text item delimiters to astid return output</lang>

else "too short"

To get the middle three digits of a number giving a string: Privatize the number. De-sign the number. Convert the number to the string. If the string's length is less than 3, put "Number has fewer than three digits" into the string; exit. If the string's length is even, put "Number has no middle" into the string; exit. Put the string's length divided by 2 into a midpoint number. Slap a substring on the string. Put the substring's first plus the midpoint minus 1 into the substring's first. Put the substring's first plus 2 into the substring's last. Put the substring into the string.

To test a number: Get the middle three digits of the number giving a string. Write "" then the number then " -> " then the string on the console.</lang>

### Composition of pure functions

Using a composable option type as an alternative to error handling:

<lang python>Middle 3 digits

1. mid3digits :: Int -> Either String String

def mid3digits(n):

```   Either the middle three digits,
or an explanatory string.

```

1. GENERIC -------------------------------------------------
1. Left :: a -> Either a b

def Left(x):

```   Constructor for an empty Either (option type) value
with an associated string.
return {'type': 'Either', 'Right': None, 'Left': x}
```

1. Right :: b -> Either a b

def Right(x):

```   Constructor for a populated Either (option type) value
return {'type': 'Either', 'Left': None, 'Right': x}
```

1. compose (<<<) :: (b -> c) -> (a -> b) -> a -> c

def compose(g):

```   Function composition.
return lambda f: lambda x: g(f(x))
```

1. either :: (a -> c) -> (b -> c) -> Either a b -> c

def either(fl):

```   The application of fl to e if e is a Left value,
or the application of fr to e if e is a Right value.
return lambda fr: lambda e: fl(e['Left']) if (
None is e['Right']
) else fr(e['Right'])
```

1. even :: Int -> Bool

def even(x):

```   Is x even ?
return 0 == x % 2
```

1. tabulated :: String -> (b -> String) -> (a -> b) -> [a] -> String

def tabulated(s):

```   Heading -> x display function -> fx display function ->
f -> value list -> tabular string.
def go(xShow, fxShow, f, xs):

```   main()</lang>

## S-lang

```Educational Notes:
1) Array-style string manipulations (e.g. as = as[[1:]] ) always use bytes,
not UTF-8 characters.  As digits and '-' are all ASCII, all is copacetic.
2) The task doesn't require 64-bit integer support, but I added it, dependant
on whether the S-Lang library compile supports them, which it generally
version of the Jed editor.]
3) S-Lang functions peel arguments off right-to-left, opposite of many
languages.  To align the order with other solutions, I enclosed the
parameters in a list.  One alternative would have been for m3() to call
_stk_reverse(_NARGS), then pop each arg directly off the stack.  Or of
course just list the numbers backwards.
```

<lang S-lang> define m3(i) {

```   variable s = string(i), sabs = s, l;

if (sabs[0] == '-')
sabs = sabs1:;
l = strlen(sabs);

if (l < 3)
print(sprintf("%s doesn't have enough digits", s));
else if (l & 1) {
variable st = (l-3) >> 1;
print(sprintf("%13s: %s", s, sabsst:st+2));
}
else
print(sprintf("%s has an even number of digits", s));
```

}

define middle_3(lst) {

```   foreach (lst)
m3( () );
```

}

middle_3( { 123, 12345, 1234567, 987654321, 10001, -10001, -123, -100, 100, -12345,
