Compose complex types

Welcome everybody, I'm happy after reading comments which you post on subreddits. Thankyou. Today, i will write my article on compose complex types but in end i give you a simple task, can you do that?

     In golang we create types in two ways
      1.       type-keyword  name-keyword  datatype
               type                Meter           float64
      2.     by using struct which you are familiar about.

   Let's start with simple example, so that we can understand how to do that.

Problem: I have two CEO, one CEO is elon musk and other is mark zuckerberg. Both CEO are also person and own attributes such as name or company. 
   If you know Object oriented approach you might think like this person is the person class and ceo is derived class. However this is not pure object oriented language, so that is not a solution. How can i solve? 
Oh Yeah, I build a struct type person, that hold all the attributes which person have. But the question what i do with ceo?
 I hope you know embed struct and anonymous structs concepts if, yes then problem solve. If you don't know then i will teach you with example
          type person struct{
                      name string
          type ceo struct {
              p  Person  // embed struct
      If you write another struct in which first struct parameter is the part of second struct then it's embed struct. 
           type person struct{
                      name string
          type ceo struct {
              Person  // anonymous struct
    Without parameter ceo struct called anonymous strut.
               package main

                 import (
              type Person struct{
        name string
       company_own string
       type CEO struct{
      var ceo CEO

      func(c *CEO)Description(){
  switch {
case "Elon":
   fmt.Println("Name:",,"\t","Company:",c.company_own,"\t","He is an                                innovator ")
case "Mark":
   fmt.Println("Name:",,"\t","Company:",c.company_own,"\t","He work                                 on social media ")

func main() {

c := &ceo = "Elon"
c.company_own = "Tesla, SpaceX"

owner:= CEO{Person{"Mark","Facebook"}}
If you are checkout how this program work Hola
         This is very useful at package level variables , which i discuss upcoming articles. 
Question : You can do this example by pointers. Thankyou, have a great day

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.    


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
