but I am not able to do it in sibilant
please help
I am using this
code
from above reference
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
could you reformat that as one code block? it's hard to tell what you're doing
I don't see anything about sorting in that code block
motivate

[m]
it is giving me output for input: (var strings (list 'hello 'hi 'hi 'hello 'hi))
output: { hello: 2, hi: 3 }
undefined
@jbr
@jbr: I have not done sorting in this code
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
could you reformat the code into a single block? i can't really tell what's going on
motivate

I want my output to be {hi:3, hello:2} in descending order
okay let me send a picture to you
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
please just use ```
motivate
@motivate:matrix.org
[m]
Nope I am not able to do it
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
``` is different from '''
motivate
@motivate:matrix.org
[m]
ohh okay sorry
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
there's a lot going on here. console.log returns undefined
so arrayToHash returns undefined
motivate
@motivate:matrix.org
[m]
Yes I want to remove this undefined
and I want my array to be printed
with the count of strings
and that too in descending order
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
so return stringHash instead of (console.log stringHash)
objects in javascript are technically ordered but there is no way to sort them
it's best to treat them as unordered
if you need them to be sorted, you'll want to return something other than an object
motivate
@motivate:matrix.org
[m]
Yes I need to sort them
Can you help me with that
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
i don't understand what you're trying to output
objects aren't sorted
i mean object keys are not reorderable. they're insert ordered

I am getting this output:
{ hello: 2, hi: 3 }
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
what's wrong with that?
motivate
@motivate:matrix.org
[m]
But I want my output to be hi:3, hello:2
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
i mean what do you want the output to be?
that's not how objects work, it's like a hash or a map
motivate
@motivate:matrix.org
[m]
so should I change the whole code
?
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
you can collect them to an array like [["hi", 3], ["hello", 2]]

Can you please tell me if I am having a list of strings So I want to print the disticnt strings out of that list with their respective counts
so how can I do it?
for keys I think I have to mention the count itself but I just have a list of strings in my output

@jbr
Is this an assignment of some sort?
motivate
@motivate:matrix.org
[m]
yup
I am stuck at this point
Jacob Rothstein
@jbr
it might help to look at the output javascript and see what you'd want to do with that
