It Wasn’t Broken UntilThey Fixed it

Not all program updates are improvements. There have been a couple of occasions where I have installed a program update only to find that one of the features I got the program for in the first place no longer works.

            Last Day oftheMonth

            While most months have a constant length the same is not true of February. When we need the last day of February we can either write our own code that applies the leap year rules (assuming that you know them) or use a couple of lines of simple JavaScript that can easily get the last day of any month regardless of how many days the month has in the specified year.

                Numeric test

                Here we look at three alternative ways to validate that a variable contains a number. Each of these is shorter than the many alternate ways that I have seen people use where they use functions not intended for this purpose.

                  Lotto Picker

                  When I last rewrrten my lotto picker example code I removed the bias from the “random sort” by replacing it with a shuffle method. This means that the code uses even more Array methods in combination than it did before (including creating the shuffle Array method). I have also made the full script a lot less obtrusive and dramatically simplified the validations.
