Coding Period – Report (6)

Hello there, this is my weekly report about my work. In this report, I will show what I did this past week. I will also show what I intend to do in the next week. let’s get started.

That’s what is done
  • I finished writing jsondecode function on my repository. The function now passes all the tests in the test suite. The function now decodes:
    • null values in non-numeric arrays
    • null values in numeric arrays
    • Boolean values
    • Numeric values
    • String values
    • Array of booleans
    • Array of numbers
    • Array of strings
    • JSON objects
    • Array of objects — Same field names
    • Array of objects — Different field names
    • Array — elements that are of different data types
How to compile and run tests on the code

Right now, the code is treated as an external *.oct file. The integration of the code into Octave’s build system will be done at the end of the project. This is how to compile it:

  • “cd” into “libinterp/corefcn” in your Octave’s code base directory
  • run “mkoctfile” command using the file name (jsondecode.cc) as an argument

Octave test files are provided for each function. You can run the one that tests jsondecode in the “libinterp/corefcn” directory by running this command:

test('../../test/json/jsondecodetest.m','quiet','../../test/json/log.txt')

The log file “log.txt” in “test/json” in your Octave’s code base directory will have the data of the failed tests.

What I intend to do

That’s it for this week. See you next one.
