Object Oriented paradigm and golang

Welcome back , I hope you enjoy previous article. If you write a code before most of us in academics or enterprizes follow object oriented paradigm. In Java, c# and other languages "class" keyword represent this is an object oriented paradigm. But in golang there is no class keyword exist. "Is Oop Exist?" Generally speaking golang is not object oriented language, however it support oop at some extend. You will see just in a moment.

Methods Working :
First of all in oop there is class who have methods and properties. Methods are used to set properties. If you want to access class you have a reference of our class. Perhaps, in golang oop is little bit different. In go, you have a method or a reference of a struct. Now the question what is method?

Method is just like function, but it has one additional parameter called receiver, which is the same type of struct. Methods usually are fast and efficient. Methods give you direct access to structs reference. 
                             func (res Result) Add(x, y)

What is the receiver? 
          A receiver is an additional parameter that directly access structs fields and apply operation on it. Receiver concept inherit from old oop paradigm. 

package main
import (
type Result struct {
y int
var res Result
func main() {
res.Add(2, 4)
func (res Result) Add(x, y int) {
res.y = y
fmt.Println(x + res.y)
                                                                                                    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
