Java Function to Calculate Statistical Mode

Tuesday January 10, 2006

I looked everywhere on the web to find a java function to calculate the mode of an array of primitive ints. This will work for floats and long ints too, I suppose.

Anyway, since it was impossible to find, I figured I would post it here so maybe someone else can benefit.

public int calcMode(int[] sourceArray) {
	int mode = 0;	    
	int[] valCounts = new int[(sourceArray.length-1)];
	for(int val:sourceArray) valCounts[val]++;
	int i = 0;			
	while(i < valCounts.length) {
		if(valCounts[i] >= valCounts[mode]) mode = i;
	return mode;

Hope this helps someone!

Free AJAX Calendar

Thursday December 22, 2005

Well, here it is. My first project using AJAX. I'm very familiar with javascript, so using the AJAX methodology came very natural to me. I made this php calendar script for a customer a few months back, but it required page refreshes to load the next and previous months.

When I heard about AJAX, the calendar seemed to be a perfect project to implement using it. I've tested it in the most recent browsers, Firefox and IE 6, and both work perfectly. Enjoy!
