A mode() function to return the mode of a list-- in the statistical sense, the most common value-- could be handy, specifically one that operates on text too.

Here is a sample implementation sub mode{ my %freq; $freq{$_}++ foreach @_; my @GRT = map { "$freq{$_}\000$_" } uniq @_; my @mode = sort @GRT; my $mode = pop @mode; my $multi = pop @mode; #Multi-modal test, uses Perl's autocast to number ;-) return undef if $mode == $multi; return (split("\000", $mode))[1]; }

Based on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mode_(statistics) the implementation is incomplete and very inefficient. However - when mode should be added, the distinguish between unimodal, bimodal and multimodal results must be possible and reasonable - either by different functions (name them reasonable) or by reasonable way of returning the mode.

Would you care to expand on your comments please? The link to a general encyclopedia entry does not offer much insight in to your claims regarding efficiency (Guttman Rosler Transform is quite efficient)* or "necessity" of detecting local maxima. The fact that such an implementation is global only should probaly be highlighted in any documentation, but more sophisticated outputs are likely more appropriate for a statistics module whereas the need to find the most common item(s) in a list is suitably general. Lastly, multi did not mean multi-modal in the general statistical sense, but rather a multi-value mode (multiple equal height peaks). * Although I did make a common mistake with the GRT that fails to sort some values correctly, Perl's COW meant any reptitive variables were a non-issue. This version corrects the GRT error though, and reports all modal values. sub mode{ my %freq; $freq{$_}++ foreach @_; my @GRT =3D reverse sort map { pack "LA*", $freq{$_}, $_ } keys %freq; my(@mode, $modefreq); foreach my $elem ( @GRT ){ my($freq, $term) =3D unpack("LA*", $elem); last unless $freq =3D=3D ($modefreq ||=3D $freq); push @mode, $term; } return \@mode if $#mode; return $mode[0]; }

That's what uniq/singleton/duplicates do ... beside ignoring that <undef> and '' evaluates to the same hash key but represent different samples. Show quoted text
> my @GRT = reverse sort map { pack "LA*", $freq{$_}, $_ } keys > %freq;
We're just lurking for the maximum value - this is in worst case O(n). Sorting is O(n * log(n)) - with an incredible constant when leaving 1st/2nd level cache... But thinking about a PurePerl implementation, it looks more reasonable to use builtin sort over Perl code looping over an array. OTOH it can be reasonable to memorize the max-occur during count (line 3 of your code). Then grep {} can be favoured over sort... Show quoted text

This loop is unnecessary when the sort is eliminated. Don't worry about that ;) Show quoted text
> return \@mode if $#mode; > return $mode[0]; > }
My claim was not intended to force you provide better code - I just cared for the API. I simply know - implementing the intial provided unimodal variant - releasing and getting wishes for bimodal and multimodal will be at the same time :) And your implementation lacks the "typical" G_SCALAR support (wantwarry is false) - then just the value of mode should be returned. And in list context - for each sample the mode value is the same. I know - there're a lot of (implicit) questions and they should be answered before ;) The quick response of you guides me to a proposal: I provide an implementation (XS first, since I currently work on List::MoreUtils::XS) and ask you for review on the API (I give you the link to the code and the link to the test file). Does is sound ok for you?

Fair enough, this was implemented more for brevity and perlishness. Eating one's own dog food and using max makes sense, although one must later iterate over %freq to find all keys with the same value (frequency). Show quoted text

Ah, yes: return @mode if wantarray(); Show quoted text

I added mode to List::MoreUtils::XS with the latest commit today (https://github.com/perl5-utils/List-MoreUtils-XS). The test code is in https://github.com/perl5-utils/Test-List-MoreUtils.

Not sure why the tests are separate, but after working my way through the not explicitly listed requirements for the module (Config::AutoConf, File::Find::Rule, Test::WriteVariants) I get the following when I run inline/mode.pm Array found where operator expected at inline/mode.pm line 15, at end of line (Missing operator before ?)

Because they're exactly the same tests for List::MoreUtils and List::MoreUtils::XS. It's easier to find regressions in one of them sharing the tests. Show quoted text

You'd need a more recent ExtUtils::MakeMaker to get rid of the warning. But it doesn't affect the build. Show quoted text

In scalar context, it's impossible to support multimodal results, thus the only reasonable value is the highest occurance. Show quoted text

They're both 14 times in the list - not 20 nor 21 times ;) In doubt, use occurances or frequency function to visualize ;) Cheers, Jens
And btw - I found a typo and force-pushed it, so sync against upstream before running tests.

Nothing in MAINTAINER or README about tests other than "make test" :-P I'd tried downloading and using the zipfile of the project, but apparently there are too many cross-project dependencies for that to work out of the box and git itself must be used. Show quoted text

I suspected as much, but wondered if it might be the source of the syntax errors. Show quoted text

Oh, I see, you have several duplicate definitions of stations "87,6" => "WDR Eins Live", "87,7" => "WDR 5", "87,7" => "Welle Niederrhein", "87,7" => "WDR 5", I had simply done a count of occurrences in the file, not the hash. I'm still drawn to the idea of not having to deal with arrays for single mode results, but there's no good way to handle this without throwing an exception if the data is multi-modal, which would require a second invocation in list context. I guess one could always do: $mode = (mode(@data))[0]; But this seems to work, and getting ready access to the frequency is handy too. Thanks!

I depends - exceptions shall be thrown in case of errors. And Perl is in general made for list processing - so while I discourage scalar context for List::MoreUtils in general - it's part of it's history and I try to make the best out of that ;) Show quoted text

I see that I do a test release tomorrow and start on PP implementation next week. Let's see whether a new combo is ready before Perl Conference in Amsterdam... Cheers, Jens

Please consider adding 'occurrences' as a synonym of 'occurances' in a future release, or, better still, make 'occurrences' the main function and add back 'occurances' as a synonym for backwards compatibility.

This is a separate task. Please open a new ticket for it.
