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!

  • \$\begingroup\$ Can I write a function or does it have to be a full program? \$\endgroup\$ – Ashwin Gupta Feb 4 '16 at 0:42

    \$\begingroup\$ I'm new to the site so asked for a script, but I've been hearing it's customary to allow functions, and that makes a lot of sense for Java, to avoid public static void main(String[] args) so definitely give a function if you like. \$\endgroup\$ – Ray Toal Feb 4 '16 at 3:40

  • \$\begingroup\$ It's not anywhere near small enough, but I think this a perfect place to share my n-tuple generator I wrote in Java: github.com/kenzierocks/Tuplocity. It generates fully generic tuples! \$\endgroup\$ – Octavia Togami Feb 4 '16 at 4:57

Java 112 bytes

void p(){String x="_0";for(int i=0;i<100;){out.format("class Tuple %d {public Object %s;}\n",++i,x);x+=",_"+i;}}


import static java.lang.System.*;

public class I {
public static void main(String[] args){
    I m=new I();
    void p(){
    String x="_0";
    for(int i=0;i<100;){
        out.format("class Tuple %d {public Object %s;}\n", ++i, x);

    \$\begingroup\$ You need to import System or use System.out. \$\endgroup\$ – mbomb007 Feb 4 '16 at 21:48
