Kyle spends a few minutes talking about a technique for dumping variables through destructuring. He uses empty slots in an array to “catch” the variables to be dumped. He then uses the gather operator to populate the original variable with the remaining destructured values.
- So, if we know that we can receive…assignments without declaration,…we can also do an interesting little trick,…this is just a little side note,…it's not something I do an awful lot…but remember earlier when we were talking about…using block scoping to do that whole X swapping thing?…Remember we did let tmp equals X,…X equals Y,…Y equals tmp.…Remember that?…We can use array destructuring…to do the swapping.…
Let's say I had an X…that was 10…and a Y that was 20…and I wanted to swap the two?…Could do that whole block thing that I just showed…or what I could do is say an array destructuring…with X and Y as my pattern…should be destructured from an array…that has them in the opposite order.…
And of course that's not limited to two.…You could do as many of those as you wanted to, right?…While we're on the topic…of using this array destructuring stuff,…if we had an A that was an array like that,…we could say for example.…
So, now we're making an array, a composite array,…I'll use spaces just to make this a little more readable.…
