Methods Receiver as a reference

Hello, Welcome back; Today , we create new type of method receiver. When a function receive a value type parameter, on heap it will create copies of all the parameters, you pass. To avoid this problem, function receive reference type variable. Such as pointer, channels. Pointers have following advantages over variable. It Directly access, no copy , change in original value.

          Method Receiver Pointer:
            If you can write a code in C. Then you know, methods are not inherit C or Java Language. It's inherit from unix messages. 
                     func (c *Cal) Sum(y int) int{ // code }
            Cases :
       There're following cases that are exit 
1. If a method receiver and method argument both are T or *T type , it directly access.
2. If a method receiver is T type, however method argument as *T type. then  it need reference to access (&)
3. If a method receiver have *T and method argument as T type then dereference (*).

package main
import (
type Cal struct{
y int
func(c *Cal)Sum(y int) int{
return c.y -y
func main() {
// case 1
rec := Cal{3}
res := rec.Sum(2)
// case 2
r := Cal{4}
re := &r
//case 3
rc := Cal{5}
 If you want to checkout the output, goto play link. If you remember my previous article it indirectly access and then set values, but in this example you only access via through pointers and also it's good approach. I hope you enjoy and learn more. Please share with your friends. 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
