Arrays [i + 1]?

Hi guys, i don’t understand why this happen. Exist another way to use
math expression in arrays?

expected: [[" ", “X”, “X”, “X”, " ", “X”, “X”, “X”], [“X”, “X”, “X”,
“X”, " ", " ", “X”, “X”], [“X”, “X”, “X”, “X”, “A”, " ", " ", “A”],
[“X”, “X”, “X”, " ", " ", " ", " ", " "], [“X”, “X”, “X”, " ", " ", " ",
“A”, " “], [” ", “X”, " ", “A”, " ", " ", " ", " “], [” ", " ", " ", "
", " ", " ", " ", " “]]
got: [[” ", “X”, “X”, “X”, " ", “X”, “X”, “X”, “X”], [“X”, “X”,
“X”, “X”, " ", " ", “X”, “X”], [“X”, “X”, “X”, “X”, “A”, " ", " ", “A”],
[“X”, “X”, “X”, " ", " ", " ", " ", " "], [“X”, “X”, “X”, " ", " ", " ",
“A”, " “], [” ", “X”, " ", “A”, " ", " ", " ", " “], [” ", " ", “X”, "
", " ", " ", “X”, “X”]] (using ==)
./testes_spec.rb:104:in `block (2 levels) in <top (required)>’

The code is here:

(def Expande)

Thanks!

looking at the code, you are adding 'X" to the adjacent cells when an
‘X’
is found in a given cell,
but what is the expected behaviour when a ‘X’ is found on an edge?

I fix it, but the result is the same…

I know nothing about tests, I am not able to help you in this matter

but I can tell you the following:

if !esperado[i-1][j].nil? esperado[i - 1][j] = “X”
end if !esperado[i+1][j].nil?
esperado[i+1][j] = “X” end if
!esperado[i][j-1].nil? esperado[i][j-1] = “X”
end if !esperado[i][j+1].nil? esperado[i][j+1]
= “X” end

None of these if will evaluate to false, lets say you are at position
[0, 0] and apply the [i - 1][j]

it will become [-1, 0]

and index -1 is the last index of an array

example:

irb(main):001:0> array = [‘first’, ‘second’, ‘third’]
=> [“first”, “second”, “third”]
irb(main):002:0> array[0]
=> “first”
irb(main):003:0> array[-1]
=> “third”

Only correcting myself
none of the ifs with minus operations

Note that Ruby arrays re-size as needed

so when j = 7 (the last index of a 8 element array)
and you assign a value to j+1, then the array is expanded to 9 elements
and
the value stored

@Chris H.,
I thought I could improve that code, so I made this
https://bitbucket.org/rafaelmoraesdefreitas/nuvem-de-cinzas/src/303ae3987a83a0772ad886b7c2bbbc4e4283d751/desafio.rb?at=master

Could you look at it and come with some critics and/or advices?

oh, thanks for the reply
“fumaca” means smoke(in portuguese) I set @fumaca = ‘X’
I thought it would be a good idea because I have to test it in line 29
if
the area is “covered with smoke”
I only get the areas where the smoke should expand(expansao)
@expansao has the IDs of the areas
and those areas in the map(mapa) will be marked with the value of
@fumaca

right, sorry, I missread the code

So does it work? :wink:

the changes look like they ensure you don’t add elements, which i’m
guessing is the desired behaviour

the loop at line 42-44 looks like its setting all elements of mapa
to @fumaca, but i would guess you rather intend to copy the contents of
expansao?
In which case line 2 should be:
mapa[x][y] = expansao[x][y]

however that can be shortened to:
mapa = expansao

Since your are returning the array, do you really need to copy it to
mapa??
