But first, the video for their third college bowl game:

Scala - Using tuples in an anonymous function

I just ran across this scala-lang.org post about using tuples in an anonymous function, and thought it was good enough to reproduce here, with only the solution part.

In essence, the question is, if I have a Map like this, which is really composed of tuples:

PHP array - How to loop through a PHP array

PHP array FAQ: How do I iterate (loop) through a PHP array?

Answer: The easiest way to loop through a PHP array is to use the PHP foreach operator. If you have a simple one-dimensional array, like the $argv array which lets you access command line arguments, you can loop through it like this:

The Perl exists function - test to see if a hash key exists

Perl "hash key exists" FAQ: How can I test to see if a key exists in a Perl hash?

Many times when working with a Perl hash, you need to know if a certain key already exists in the hash. The Perl exists function lets you easily determine if a key already exists in the hash.

My Perl hash tutorials

Perl hash tutorials FAQ: Can you share some Perl hash tutorials, or Perl hash examples?

I've recently written a number of articles about the Perl hash construct (or "Perl array hash"). In an effort to try to organize the Perl hash tutorials I've written, I've created this article to help link them all together.

Perl hash add element - How to add an element to a Perl hash

Perl hash "add" FAQ: How do I add a new element to a Perl hash? (Or, How do I push a new element onto a Perl hash?)

The Perl hash is a cool programming construct, and was very unique when I was learning programming languages in the late 1980s. A Perl hash is basically an array, but the keys of the array are strings instead of numbers.

Basic Perl hash "add element" syntax

To add a new element to a Perl hash, you use the following general syntax:

Perl hash introduction tutorial

Perl hash FAQ: Can you share some simple Perl hash examples?

Sure. If you're not familiar with them, a Perl hash is simply a Perl array that is indexed by a string instead of a number. A Perl hash is like a Map in the Java programming language, or an array in PHP.

Perl hash - Background information

To get started looking at a hash in Perl, let's look at a simple example. First, let's assume that Perl hashes don't exist. Next, lets assume that we need to store the prices of various food items you'll find in a restaurant.

MySQL foreign key examples (How to define foreign keys in MySQL)

MySQL foreign key FAQ: How do I define a foreign key in MySQL?

Answer: Here's a quick example of how I typically define a foreign key in MySQL.

Diving right into an example, here's the definition for a MySQL database table named nodes that I will link to from a second table:

A Java WeakHashMap class example

I ran across some Java source code today that I thought I should share. This code demonstrates how to use the Java WeakHashMap class, which can serve as a nice cache some times. I particularly like how this class responds to available memory and the Java garbage collection system.

Let me share the Java source code here first, and then I'll provide a description of how it works:

Perl hash sort - How to sort a Perl hash by the hash key

Perl hash sort FAQ: How do I sort a Perl hash by the hash key?

Answer: Sorting the output of a Perl hash by the hash key is fairly straightforward. It involves two Perl functions, keys and sort, along with the good old foreach statement.
