Write a JavaScript program to cast the provided value as an array if it's not one.

• Use Array.prototype.isArray() to determine if val is an array and return it as-is or encapsulated in an array accordingly.

Sample Solution:

JavaScript Code:

``````//#Source https://bit.ly/2neWfJ2
const castArray = val => (Array.isArray(val) ? val : [val]);
console.log(castArray('w3r'));
console.log(castArray([100]));

## JavaScript: Tips of the Day

Returns an array of n-tuples of consecutive elements

Example:

```const tips_arr = (n, arr) =>  n > arr.length ? [] : arr.slice(n - 1).map((v, i) =>[...arr.slice(i, i + n - 1), v]);
console.log(tips_arr(2, [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]));
console.log(tips_arr(3, [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]));
console.log(tips_arr(5, [1, 2, 3, 4]));
```

Output:

```[[1, 2], [2, 3], [3, 4], [4, 5]]
[[1, 2, 3], [2, 3, 4], [3, 4, 5]]
[]
```
