Arrays and Hashes processing :pls help


#1

hi friends

i have a long array with structure like this

[[“377”, “838”],
[“377”, “990”],
[“377”, “991”],
[“377”, “992”],
[“378”, “840”],
[“378”, “841”],
[“378”, “842”],
[“378”, “843”],
[“378”, “844”]]

how can i convert it in one line to

[[“377”, “838 990 991 992”],
[“378”, “840 841 842 843 844”]]

if thats diificult is the below array processable in one line

[{“prefix”=>“838”, “scf_id”=>“377”},
{“prefix”=>“990”, “scf_id”=>“377”},
{“prefix”=>“991”, “scf_id”=>“377”},
{“prefix”=>“992”, “scf_id”=>“377”},
{“prefix”=>“840”, “scf_id”=>“378”},
{“prefix”=>“841”, “scf_id”=>“378”},
{“prefix”=>“842”, “scf_id”=>“378”},
{“prefix”=>“843”, “scf_id”=>“378”},
{“prefix”=>“844”, “scf_id”=>“378”}]

in this form

[{“prefix”=>“838 990 991 992”, “scf_id”=>“377”},
{“prefix”=>“840 841 842 843 844”, “scf_id”=>“378”}]

pls help

I don’t understand the need for one line, but… Also, why an array of
hashes? why not a hash?

if your array of hashes is referenced by h, then:
out = h.inject({}) {|s,v| x=s[v[“scf_id”]] || “”; s[v[“scf_id”]]="#{x}
#{v[“prefix”]}".trim;s}

that (above) gives you a hash with distinct values of scf_id referencing
prefixes. That said, you can do the following if you must have an
array:
out = (h.inject({}) {|s,v| x=s[v[“scf_id”]] || “”; s[v[“scf_id”]]="#{x}
#{v[“prefix”]}".trim;s}).inject([]){|s,v|
s<<{“scf_id”=>v[0],“prefix”=>v[1]};s}

It’s ugly. Not maintainable.

Why the need for one line?
