  10. 10. Multidemensional Arrays CODE SNIPPET !BEWARE! ARRAY IZ BUCKET < Create Bucket ^Variable Name 0 FISH quot;zeroquot; !! three FISH IZ BAG <- Use bag or buckets !! FISH quot;threequot; !! !! FISH quot;twoquot; !! ^New Dimension BAG BUCKET <- Prints “two” VISIBLE &ARRAY#two,1&
  11. 11. BAG Arrays CODE SNIPPET !BEWARE! ARRAY IZ BUCKET < Create Bucket ^Variable Name 0 FISH quot;zeroquot; !! three FISH IZ BAG <Create BAG !! FISH quot;threequot; !! !! FISH quot;twoquot; !! BAG ^BAG uses auto incremented keys. BUCKET <- Prints “two” VISIBLE &ARRAY#two,1&
  12. 12. Looping CODE SNIPPET ARRAY IZ BUCKET !BEWARE! < Create Bucket 0 FISH quot;zeroquot; !! 1 FISH quot;1quot; !! 2 FISH quot;2quot; !! BUCKET <- Foreach IM IN UR ARRAY ITZA NUMBA VISIBLE quot;&NUMBA&!quot; ^Prints “zero!1!2!” KTHX
  13. 13. Functions CODE SNIPPET !BEWARE! SO IM LIKE UPPING WITH VAR VAR2=0 ^Var Name ^Arguments ^Default Value VAR UPUP! <- Increment VAR I FOUND MAH VAR<- Return VAR KTHX <End Function VISIBLE quot;FOUR UP? ITZA quot;.UPPING(4) ^Prints “5”
  14. 14. Advanced Features CODE SNIPPET !BEWARE! THEVAR IZ GOLD VARNAME IZ THEVAR VISIBLE &&VARNAME&& <-Prints “GOLD” ^- Variable Variable ALWAYZ SKY IZ BLUE <- Set Constant VISIBLE __SKY__ <- Print Constant

  16. 16. SQLite Databases CODE SNIPPET !BEWARE! CAN HAS SQL? <- Include SQL Lib DBASE IZ GETDB('lolz')<-Select DB File FUNNAHS IZ DBUCKET( ^Get Array from DB &DBASE&, quot;CAN I PLZ GET joke ALL UP IN funnahsquot; ) ^LOL-SQL. “Select joke from funnahs”
  17. 17. SQLite Databases, Part Deux CODE SNIPPET !BEWARE! CAN HAS SQL? <- Get Array from DB DBASE IZ GETDB('lolz') FUNNAHS IZ DBUCKET(&DBASE&,quot;CAN I PLZ GET joke ALL UP IN funnahsquot;) < Loop It IM IN UR FUNNAHS ITZA JOKE VISIBLE quot;<P>quot;.&JOKE#joke&.quot;</P>quot; ^Print each joke KTHX (dbucket returns assoc array)
