In Python, one can save bytes by aliasing functions that are used repeatedly. For example:
r=range a=r(100) b=r(200) c=r(300)
However, when the functions are member functions together, I don't know how to alias them in a way that allows chaining. For example:
s='Hello' // Plain code s=s.replace('H','J').replace('e','i').replace('l','m').replace('o','y') // What I am trying to do q=replace s=s.q('H','J').q('e','i').q('l','m').q('o','y')
Obviously, what I am trying to do isn't valid syntax. And neither is this:
q=s.replace s=q('H','J') // Replaces the 'H' in 'Hello' s=q('e','i') // Replaces the 'e' in 'Hello'... and the J is gone. s=q('l','m') s=q('o','y')
Is there a another way to alias member functions and chained functions that saves characters?
