DongGook Park asked about some confusing use of repeated patterns.
-------------------------
The following Mathematica result quite confuses me. I can understand the
output of
the first input command, but not the second output. Why not {0,1) but
{0,0,0,1}?
In[1]:=
{1,0,0,0} /. {x___Integer, y_Integer..} -> {x, y}
Out[1]=
{1,0}
In[2]:=
{0,0,0,1} /. {x_Integer.., y___Integer} -> {x, y}
Out[2]=
{0,0,0,1}
--------------------
I might be wrong if I tried to justify the above. Anyway I think it's much
more instructive if you can tell which part of the output is (x) and which
part is (y).
Below I give some interesting variations of your examples.
In[3]:=
{1,0,0,0}/.{x___Integer,y_Integer..}->{{x},{y}}
Out[3]=
{{1},{0}}
In[4]:=
{1,0,0,0}/.{x__Integer,y_Integer..}->{{x},{y}}
Out[4]=
{{1},{0}}
In[5]:=
{0,0,0,1}/.{x_Integer..,y___Integer}->{{x},{y}}
Out[5]=
{{0},{0,0,1}}
In[6]:=
{0,0,0,1}/.{x_Integer...,y___Integer}->{{x},{y}}
Out[6]=
{{},{0,0,0,1}}
In[7]:=
{1,0,0,0} /. {x___Integer, y:(_Integer..)} -> {{x},{ y}}
Out[7]=
{{},{1,0,0,0}}
In[8]:=
{1,0,0,0} /. {x__Integer, y:(_Integer..)} -> {{x},{ y}}
Out[8]=
{{1},{0,0,0}}
In[9]:=
{0,0,0,1} /. {x:(_Integer..), y___Integer} -> {{x},{ y}}
Out[9]=
{{0},{0,0,1}}
In[10]:=
{0,0,0,1} /. {x:(_Integer...), y___Integer} -> {{x},{ y}}
Out[10]=
{{},{0,0,0,1}}
