How Function values are useful?

Golang is interesting language. If you wanna to play then start build your lego empire today. You know how to build homes, shops, trees etc. Someday, I will show you how to build a factories or companies so that our universe look like a real world. 

Like ordinary values assign to variables, in golang you can assign function values to your variables, because function values have own type.

package main
import (
"fmt"
)
func main() {
f:= square
fmt.Println(f(2))
f = underRoot
fmt.Println(f(4))
f = add
fmt.Println(f(2,2)) // error
}
func square(x int)int {
return x * x
}
func underRoot(x int)int {
return x*1/2
}
func add(x, y int)int {
return x+y
}
       Confused ?
               f = underRoot
               f = add // error
Are you confuse in these statement, if yes then square initially assign to f, which take one parameter as a argument. This tells f(2) that f hold square definition and 2 in our case value.
            4 [Ok , everything fine]
when underRoot assign to f. According to f definition , it take only one parameter as argument, which is again okay. But when add assign to f, now the compiler again check the definition of add function and compare with existing definition. In this case now whole
definition change which is not allowed. That why it produce error.

Warning :
Never return nil type value otherwise you received panic. You can't compare function values with other function value, function values are not used keys in maps.

You can also compare function value with nil. That Okay

Rosicrucian cipher

In 1513 Cornelius Agrippa introduce early form Rosicrucian Cipher in his books Occult of Philosophy. Geometric and simple substitution cipher are well known ciphers      Pigpen , Freemason, Napoleon and tic tac toe ciphers in which alphabets or symbols arrange in grids.  This is an anagram, "How to reconstruct a data " lets encode the message.       Pigpen cipher , Rosicrucian and Tic tac toe Cipher                      Thank you have a good day.    

Enumerate

Golang provide  own enumerate method which is easy and very powerful. I will show you enumerate with in a sec. When i code enumerate in java, believe me i don't understand why it's used? So i never play from this card at that time, but recently when i start learning go. Now i used where it's used and why? Enumerate basically a counting method. Code   package main import ( " fmt " ) type Weekend int const ( Sunday Weekend = iota Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday ) func main () { fmt. Printf ( " %d " ,Saturday) } If you remember adding color layer then you familiar from this code.  First i create my own type called weekend then used this type.  Iota-generator:   Things that confuse you Sunday Weekend = iota & Monday without value. Before we start Iota-generator first we understand monday without type or value         const ( c = 1 // c : 1 d      // d : 1 ) fmt.Pr

Every Object have a structure

If you start your programming career from c , then you know little about structs. Later Struct replace by classes in object oriented programming. However Go inherit from C. Structs :     With the help of structs, programmer can develop any type of structure         List        Stack        Queue        Trees        Graphs package main import ( " fmt " ) type Students struct { ID int Name string } var record Students func Id ( i int ) int { record. ID = i return record. ID } func Name ( name string ) string { record. Name = name return record. Name } func main () { var id int = 0 var name string = " ali " fmt. Println ( " id: " , Id (id), " name: " , Name (name)) } When we want to create custom type such as Celsius type Celsius float64, same with structs type Students structs except type need data type and in structs. You tells that's struct. Inside Structs
