base10inc.sed: New script demonstrating regexbased addition
It might be easy to guess where I'm heading with the concepts that I'm demonstrating with these scripts. It's just fun to do, and I've never had an excuse to actually do it. ("It" referring to something for future commits.) You can try this out like this: $ ./animate base10inc.sed <( echo 000 ) 0.01 * regex/base10inc.sed: New file.master

# This shows how to perform basic arithmetic on numbers using regular


# expressions. The method is outlined below. It's easy to see that, for


# any baseN number of M digits, we need NM regexes. For K such numbers, we


# need NMK regexes. The more M or K we have, the more complex the regexes


# become to handle the offsets. (The use of the `^' and `$' anchors alone


# for replacements are only sufficient for M≤3 when K=1; what do we have to


# do when M>3 to replace only the digits we are interested in?)


#


# It is possible to subtract using the same concept. Further, since we can


# implement addition and subtraction, we can also implement multiplication


# and division.


#


# TO USE: Provide a 0padded 3digit base10 number. Each time this script


# is run, the number will be incremented by one. Exits with exit code 1 if


# a non3digitnumber is provided; and 2 once we cannot count any higher.

# Input must only be numbers


/^[09]\{3\}$/!q1




# Increment 1s (third character). If we overflow, represent the overflow as


# an `A', which is then handled below.


s/9$/A/


s/8$/9/


s/7$/8/


s/6$/7/


s/5$/6/


s/4$/5/


s/3$/4/


s/2$/3/


s/1$/2/


s/0$/1/




# Carry 10s by converting the overflow character `A' to a `0' and


# incrementing the 10s position.


s/9A$/A0/


s/8A$/90/


s/7A$/80/


s/6A$/70/


s/5A$/60/


s/4A$/50/


s/3A$/40/


s/2A$/30/


s/1A$/20/


s/0A$/10/




# Same as above, but for 100s.


s/^9A/A0/


s/^8A/90/


s/^7A/80/


s/^6A/70/


s/^5A/60/


s/^4A/50/


s/^3A/40/


s/^2A/30/


s/^1A/20/


s/^0A/10/




# Any remaining carry flags means we can't count any higher.
