Write a script that writes to standard output, or your language's equivalent, 100 lines of (valid) Java code that begins with:

class Tuple1 {public Object _0;}
class Tuple2 {public Object _0,_1;}
class Tuple3 {public Object _0,_1,_2;}
class Tuple4 {public Object _0,_1,_2,_3;}
class Tuple5 {public Object _0,_1,_2,_3,_4;}
class Tuple6 {public Object _0,_1,_2,_3,_4,_5;}
class Tuple7 {public Object _0,_1,_2,_3,_4,_5,_6;}
class Tuple8 {public Object _0,_1,_2,_3,_4,_5,_6,_7;}
class Tuple9 {public Object _0,_1,_2,_3,_4,_5,_6,_7,_8;}
class Tuple10 {public Object _0,_1,_2,_3,_4,_5,_6,_7,_8,_9;}
class Tuple11 {public Object _0,_1,_2,_3,_4,_5,_6,_7,_8,_9,_10;}
class Tuple12 {public Object _0,_1,_2,_3,_4,_5,_6,_7,_8,_9,_10,_11;}

The last line should begin with class Tuple100.

This is , so the shortest code in bytes wins!

@Peter Thanks for pointing the 0/1 mistake.

The query use the CONNECT BY CLAUSE of hierarchical query to generate 100 rows.

The LEVEL pseudocolumn contains the row number of each row.

SYS_CONNECT_BY_PATH concatenate the first parameter, the row number, of each row, and use the second parameter as the separator.

Java, 103 bytes

s->{s="_0";for(int i=0;i++<100;s+=",_"+i)System.out.printf("class Tuple%s {public Object %s;}\n",i,s);}

My first time here. Hi there! I went for a Java8 lambda expression (aka an anonymous function).

Ungolfed version

s -> {
    s = "_0";
    for (int i = 0; i++ < 100; s += ",_" + i)
        System.out.printf("class Tuple%s {public Object %s;}\n", i, s);

To actually use this, as usual in Java8, you have to assign it to a variable of (or cast it to) an appropriate functional interface and then call its method; but technically, the function is only the lambda expression itself, so I am counting only that.

It also requires an input parameter, which saves me a couple bytes, since I can abuse it as a local variable without having to specify its type. I'm not sure if that's considered cheating, but to me it appears to be within the rules: I only saw people state that posting a function is allowed, not how that function needs to be invoked. :) And it doesn't actually read the parameter, so the function is still self-contained; you can pass any String to it, or even null, and it will still produce the correct output.

And here is how to use it:

import java.util.function.Consumer;

public class Main {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        Consumer<?> r =
            s->{s="_0";for(int i=0;i++<100;s+=",_"+i)System.out.printf("class Tuple%s {public Object %s;}\n",i,s);}

Python 2, 96

Python 3, 98

    if n == 0:
        s = "class Tuple%d {public Object _0"
        s = javatuple(n-1) + ',_' + str(n)
    print(s%(n+1) + ';}')
    return s



for i in r(100):
 print"class Tuple%d {public Object _%s;}"%(i+1,',_'.join(`j`for j in r(i+1)))

Yes, that newline is supposed to be there.

Japt, 52 bytes

Lo £`cÓ? TÕà{X} \{puÞV Object {Xò ®'_+Z}&}` r&59d} ·

The ? should be the literal byte 0x95. Test it online!

Japt has:

  • concise syntax to help shorten your code.
  • string compression to help shorten it even further.
  • lots of bugs to make you want to throw your computer out the window.

I can't even use a semicolon in the string because the function it's wrapped in wants to return everything after the semicolon. This should only be 46 bytes:

Lo £`cÓ? TÕà{X} \{puÞV Object {Xò ®'_+Z};}`} ·

But alas, it is not. I'll see if I can fix these bugs over the next couple of hours.

How it works

Lo £       }  // Generate the range [0..100), and map each item X in this range to:
`cÓ? TÕà{X}   //  "class Tuple" + X +
\{puÞV Object //  "{public Object" +
{Xò ®'_+Z}    //   Create the range [0..X] and map each item Z to "_" + Z.
              //   Upon stringification, this automatically inserts the commas.
&}`           //  + "&}"
r&59d         //  Replace the "&" with String.fromCharCode(59), or ";".
·             // Join the result with newlines.
  • \$\begingroup\$ Bah! Ninjaed by ~18 months! You need to increment the first X, by the way. \$\endgroup\$ – Shaggy Sep 26 '17 at 14:47

    \$\begingroup\$ I think you can replace ${i+1} with ${i++} and replace ${[...Array(i++)] with ${[...Array(i)]. \$\endgroup\$ – Conor O'Brien Feb 3 '16 at 19:55

Groovy, 97 bytes

(1..100).each{println "class Tuple${it} {public Object ${(0..it-1).collect{"_$it"}.join(',')};}"}

Try it online!

    \$\begingroup\$ You can user 100.times{} instead of (1..100).each{}, which saves 4 bytes. \$\endgroup\$ – Krzysztof Atłasik May 17 '16 at 9:13
  • \$\begingroup\$ You can also omit braces in join (join','), remove space after println, and replace .collect{} with *.with{} \$\endgroup\$ – Krzysztof Atłasik May 17 '16 at 9:31

Python 2, 96 Bytes

for i in r(1,101):print"class Tuple%d {public Object _%s;}"%(i,',_'.join(map(str,r(i))))

Thanks @DenkerAffe for the suggestion of using lambda.

Thanks @MathiasEttinger for the join idea.

  • 2
    \$\begingroup\$ You can golf this down to 111 bytes if you use a lambda in your reduce-call instead of defining a function for this: reduce(lambda x,y:'%s,_%s'%(x,y), r(i)) \$\endgroup\$ – Denker Feb 3 '16 at 9:01
  • 1
    \$\begingroup\$ Or use ',_'.join(map(str,r(i))) for an extra 14 bytes removal (or 15, since you left an extra space in your reduce). \$\endgroup\$ – 301_Moved_Permanently Feb 4 '16 at 14:07

C++, 164 159 157 bytes (155 as function only)

#include <iostream>
#define o std::cout<<
int main(){int j,i=0;for(;i<100;++i){o"class Tuple"<<i+1<<" {public Object _0";for(j=0;++j<=i;)o",_"<<j;o";}\n";}}

This is a full program. You can save 2 bytes in function only form if you replace int main() with void f().

Run code in Ideone

Ungolfed, including macro expansion

#include <iostream>
int main()
    int j,i=0;
        std::cout << "class Tuple"<< i+1 <<" {public Object _0";
            std::cout << ",_" << j;
        std::cout << ";}\n";
  • \$\begingroup\$ Welcome to Programming Puzzles & Code Golf! Nice first answer! Unless stated otherwise in the challenge, you can always use functions instead of full programs, so you can save a few bytes by doing that. You still have to include iostream tho, since its needed for the output. \$\endgroup\$ – Denker Feb 4 '16 at 15:22
  • \$\begingroup\$ You might also want to do j=1 in your for loop, thus not having the if(j). \$\endgroup\$ – Ethiraric Feb 5 '16 at 10:42
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Ethiraric But of course! How sloppy of me. I guess I got too focused on the idea "remember to skip additions on first line" and ended up writing that too literally. \$\endgroup\$ – sendaran Feb 5 '16 at 10:59
  • \$\begingroup\$ @sendaran Or even may be for(int j=0;++j<=i;) would save one more byte. \$\endgroup\$ – Ethiraric Feb 5 '16 at 11:25
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Ethiraric Did that and shaved off an extra byte by extracting variable declarations, which enabled another empty expression. \$\endgroup\$ – sendaran Feb 5 '16 at 14:27
