And, how do you sort the double-array based on the value of the second component?
Right now, our code looks like:
G0 = []
pop = 0
while pop<1000:
G0.append(randomWord())
pop+=1
G0_fit = []
for i in range (0,1000):
G0_fit.append(FitFunc(G0[i]))
tempList = sorted(G0_fit)
cutoff = tempList[400]
inter = []
for i in range (0, 1000):
if G0_fit[i]<=cutoff:
inter.append(G0[i])
We want to avoid the "cutoff=tempList[400]" and following loop, and just sort both G0 and G0_fit in one step.Sat, 09 Feb 2013 10:48:36 -0600https://ask.sagemath.org/question/9791/creating-and-sorting-a-2d-array/Answer by ppurka for <p>How do you create a double-array in Sage (first component string, second component int)?

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/9791/creating-and-sorting-a-2d-array/?comment=18225#post-id-18225Sorry for the delayed response. We gave it a try, and it's definitely a much more natural way to sort. Thanks!Fri, 15 Feb 2013 15:13:05 -0600https://ask.sagemath.org/question/9791/creating-and-sorting-a-2d-array/?comment=18225#post-id-18225
