    absBy

    NPM version Build Status Coverage Status

    Compute the absolute value of each element retrieved from a strided input array via a callback function and assign each result to an element in a strided output array.

    Installation

    npm install @stdlib/math-strided-special-abs-by

    Usage

    var absBy = require( '@stdlib/math-strided-special-abs-by' );

    absBy( N, x, strideX, y, strideY, clbk[, thisArg] )

    Computes the absolute value of each element retrieved from a strided input array x via a callback function and assigns each result to an element in a strided output array y.

    function accessor( v ) {
        return v * 2.0;
    }
    
    var x = [ -2.0, 1.0, 3.0, -5.0, 4.0, 0.0, -1.0, -3.0 ];
    var y = [ 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0 ];
    
    absBy( x.length, x, 1, y, 1, accessor );
    // y => [ 4.0, 2.0, 6.0, 10.0, 8.0, 0.0, 2.0, 6.0 ]

    The function accepts the following arguments:

    • N: number of indexed elements.
    • x: input Array, typed array, or an array-like object (excluding strings and functions).
    • strideX: index increment for x.
    • y: output Array, typed array, or an array-like object (excluding strings and functions).
    • strideY: index increment for y.
    • clbk: callback function.
    • thisArg: execution context (optional).

    The invoked callback function is provided six arguments:

    • value: input array element.
    • idx: iteration index (zero-based).
    • xi: input array strided index (offsetX + idx*strideX).
    • yi: output array strided index (offsetY + idx*strideY).
    • x: input array/collection.
    • y: output array/collection.

    To set the callback execution context, provide a thisArg.

    function accessor( v ) {
        this.count += 1;
        return v * 2.0;
    }
    
    var context = {
        'count': 0
    };
    
    var x = [ -2.0, 1.0, 3.0, -5.0, 4.0, 0.0, -1.0, -3.0 ];
    var y = [ 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0 ];
    
    absBy( x.length, x, 1, y, 1, accessor, context );
    // y => [ 4.0, 2.0, 6.0, 10.0, 8.0, 0.0, 2.0, 6.0 ]
    
    var cnt = context.count;
    // returns 8

    The N and stride parameters determine which elements in x and y are accessed at runtime. For example, to index every other value in x and to index the first N elements of y in reverse order,

    function accessor( v ) {
        return v * 2.0;
    }
    
    var x = [ -1.0, -2.0, -3.0, -4.0, -5.0, -6.0 ];
    var y = [ 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0 ];
    
    absBy( 3, x, 2, y, -1, accessor );
    // y => [ 10.0, 6.0, 2.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0 ]

    Note that indexing is relative to the first index. To introduce an offset, use typed array views.

    var Float64Array = require( '@stdlib/array-float64' );
    
    function accessor( v ) {
        return v * 2.0;
    }
    
    // Initial arrays...
    var x0 = new Float64Array( [ -1.0, -2.0, -3.0, -4.0, -5.0, -6.0 ] );
    var y0 = new Float64Array( [ 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0 ] );
    
    // Create offset views...
    var x1 = new Float64Array( x0.buffer, x0.BYTES_PER_ELEMENT*1 ); // start at 2nd element
    var y1 = new Float64Array( y0.buffer, y0.BYTES_PER_ELEMENT*3 ); // start at 4th element
    
    absBy( 3, x1, -2, y1, 1, accessor );
    // y0 => <Float64Array>[ 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 12.0, 8.0, 4.0 ]

    absBy.ndarray( N, x, strideX, offsetX, y, strideY, offsetY, clbk[, thisArg] )

    Computes the absolute value of each element retrieved from a strided input array x via a callback function and assigns each result to an element in a strided output array y using alternative indexing semantics.

    function accessor( v ) {
        return v * 2.0;
    }
    
    var x = [ -1.0, -2.0, -3.0, -4.0, -5.0 ];
    var y = [ 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0 ];
    
    absBy.ndarray( x.length, x, 1, 0, y, 1, 0, accessor );
    // y => [ 2.0, 4.0, 6.0, 8.0, 10.0 ]

    The function accepts the following additional arguments:

    • offsetX: starting index for x.
    • offsetY: starting index for y.

    While typed array views mandate a view offset based on the underlying buffer, the offsetX and offsetY parameters support indexing semantics based on starting indices. For example, to index every other value in x starting from the second value and to index the last N elements in y,

    function accessor( v ) {
        return v * 2.0;
    }
    
    var x = [ -1.0, -2.0, -3.0, -4.0, -5.0, -6.0 ];
    var y = [ 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0 ];
    
    absBy.ndarray( 3, x, 2, 1, y, -1, y.length-1, accessor );
    // y => [ 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 12.0, 8.0, 4.0 ]

    Notes

    • If a provided callback function does not return any value (or equivalently, explicitly returns undefined), the value is ignored.

      function accessor() {
          // No-op...
      }
      
      var x = [ -2.0, 1.0, 3.0, -5.0, 4.0, 0.0, -1.0, -3.0 ];
      var y = [ 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0 ];
      
      absBy( x.length, x, 1, y, 1, accessor );
      // y => [ 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0 ]

    Examples

    var discreteUniform = require( '@stdlib/random-base-discrete-uniform' );
    var filledarray = require( '@stdlib/array-filled' );
    var absBy = require( '@stdlib/math-strided-special-abs-by' );
    
    function accessor( v, i ) {
        if ( (i%3) === 0 ) {
            // Simulate a "missing" value...
            return;
        }
        return v;
    }
    
    var x = filledarray( 0.0, 10, 'generic' );
    var y = filledarray( null, 10, 'generic' );
    
    var i;
    for ( i = 0; i < x.length; i++ ) {
        x[ i ] = discreteUniform( -100, 100 );
    }
    console.log( x );
    console.log( y );
    
    absBy.ndarray( x.length, x, 1, 0, y, -1, y.length-1, accessor );
    console.log( y );
