Two Dimensional Array Iteration Help
Hi to all,
I'm trying to implement a maze creation class which needs a method to check the adjustment blocks (diagonal) to each block in my two dimensional array.
example:
Java Code://field Block[][] maze = new Block[5][5]; //method pubic boolean chechAdj(int x, int y){ //[I]x[/I] and [I]y[/I] are the current Block's indexes. int count = 0; for(Block[] Xblocks : this.maze){ //how can I slice [I]this.maze[/I] to 1 and +1 of [I]x[/I] and [I]y[/I] [B]excluding[/B] [I]x[/I] and [I]y[/I]? for(Block block : Xblocks){ if(block.wall == true) count +=1; } } return count; }
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance,
George.

If you are looking for all the diagonals, manually find all of them and see if you see some pattern there.

Thanks for the reply.
I'm just interested in the adjustment diagonal Blocks and I know that the pattern is:
for x,y < block under check,
a) x1,y1
b) x+1,y1
c) x1,y+1
d) x+1,y+1
only those four blocks are of interest to me but I can't find an appropriate way to iterate them...

Trying to be a little clearer,
here is the equivalent of what I'm looking for in Python:Java Code:>>> l = [[i for i in range(5)] for i in range(5)] >>> for i in l: ... print i ... [0, 1, 2, 3, 4] [0, [B]1[/B], 2, [B]3[/B], 4] [0, 1, 2, 3, 4] [0, [B]1[/B], 2, [B]3[/B], 4] [0, 1, 2, 3, 4] >>> l[2][2] # this is the current block! 2 >>> def check(x,y): ... for i in l[x1:x+2:2]: # This kind of [I]list slicing[/I] is ... for j in i[y1:y+2:2]: # what I'm looking for in Java. ... print j ... >>> check(2,2) 1 3 1 3 >>>
