Revision 9. </p> <p>Useful if you need to replace many different characters with all of the same character. Can accept an unlimited number of request to replace.</p> <p>Does not work with words, only characters. You can, however, replace single characters with words. I may go back and re-implement it using tuples for the keys, but this would make searching the text for any matches pretty expensive, I'd imagine. At that point, it's mostly a job for a regex, and those tools already exist.</p> Frequency Analyser (Python) 2011-08-11T09:26:56-07:00Stijn de Graaf <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 577837 by <a href="/recipes/users/4178055/">Stijn de Graaf</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/analysis/">analysis</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/analyze/">analyze</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/character/">character</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/cryptography/">cryptography</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/frequency/">frequency</a>). </p> <p>Calculates the frequency of characters within a block of text. In the context of cryptography, these values can be compared to a frequency table in order to attempt to ascertain the original message.</p> Special Range Function for Different Kinds of Ranges (int, float, character) (Python) 2011-03-30T16:42:47-07:00Sunjay Varma <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 577583 by <a href="/recipes/users/4174115/">Sunjay Varma</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/character/">character</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/float/">float</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/integer/">integer</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/python/">python</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/range/">range</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/special/">special</a>). Revision 3. </p> <p>This module allows the user to create a more verbose set of ranges. Simple character ranges, and float ranges are supported.</p> <p>Supported Ranges:</p> <ul> <li>Basic Integer Ranges</li> <li>Float Ranges (as accurate as a float range can get)</li> <li>Simple character ranges (lowercase to lowercase, uppercase to uppercase, etc.)</li> </ul> <p>It should work in Python 2 and Python 3.</p> <p><strong>If you tested this for speed, or want to test this for speed, please post the results! (And your system specs)</strong></p> <p><strong>Edit:</strong> Found a really silly error of mine when using range instead of xrange in these functions!</p> Go to nth character (JavaScript) 2010-05-27T13:44:00-07:00Glenn Jenkins <p style="color: grey"> JavaScript recipe 577246 by <a href="/recipes/users/4174057/">Glenn Jenkins</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/character/">character</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/goto/">goto</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/komodo/">komodo</a>). </p> <p>Pops up a dialogue box to ask you for a character number (position), validates it, then moves the cursor to the character at that position in the current document.</p> <p>Useful for eg a SQL statement where you have an "error at character 3456"</p>
