Python:通过计算阶乘来学习lambda和reduce这两个函数的使用

从上学时开始，通常是用C来求阶乘，今天无事，用python写了一下，主要在于学习lambda和reduce这两个函数的使用。

我们感兴趣的不在程序本身，我想更多地会关注lambda和reduce这两个函数，我们来看一下：

lambda

手册中这样描述：

[plain] lambda
An anonymous inline function consisting of a single expression which is evaluated when the function is called. The syntax to create a lambda function is lambda [arguments]: expression

[python] def my_func(x, y):
return x * y
def my_func(x, y):
return x * y

reduce

手册中这样描述：

[plain] reduce(function, iterable[, initializer])
Apply function of two arguments cumulatively to the items of iterable, from left to right, so as to reduce the iterable to a single value. For example, reduce(lambda x, y: x+y, [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]) calculates ((((1+2)+3)+4)+5). The left argument, x, is the accumulated value and the right argument, y, is the update value from the iterable. If the optional initializer is present, it is placed before the items of the iterable in the calculation, and serves as a default when the iterable is empty. If initializer is not given and iterable contains only one item, the first item is returned.

就是用函数function对序列，如list中的元素进行处理，每次处理两个数据项(一个是前次处理的结果，一个是序列中的下一个元素)，如此反复的递归处理，最后对整个序列求出一个单一的返回值。

改写一下上面的程序，很快可以理解这句话的意思：

[python] def my_func(x, y):
print 'x = %d, y = %d' %(x, y)
return x * y

print reduce(my_func, range(1, long(raw_input("please input a number ( > 0):"))))
def my_func(x, y):
print 'x = %d, y = %d' %(x, y)
return x * y

print reduce(my_func, range(1, long(raw_input("please input a number ( > 0):"))))
