I am somewhat new to Processing and Java-type syntax, but not new to programming in general. My project requires use of arrays, and I’ve been able to code everything out using for loops etc., but it’s tedious compared to what I know how to do using vectorized array helper functions in Python, R, or Matlab.
I’ve noticed in the Processing documentation that arrays have some helper functions and arrayLists or intLists have even more. After some searching around, I’ve found that array implementation in Java has even more helper functions through java.util.arrays (e.g., searching for a value and returning its index).
Can these be used in Processing? Or are we limited to the functions in the Processing documentation. Can a method from arrayList be used on an array?
