JavaScript: Find the maximum number from a given positive integer by deleting exactly one digit of the given number

JavaScript Basic: Exercise-103 with Solution

Write a JavaScript program to find the maximum number from a given positive integer by deleting exactly one digit of the given number.

Pictorial Presentation:

JavaScript: Find the maximum number from a given positive integer by deleting exactly one digit of the given number.

Sample Solution:

HTML Code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width">
  <title> Find the maximum number from a given positive integer by deleting exactly one digit of the given number</title>
</head>
<body>

</body>
</html>

JavaScript Code:

function digit_delete(num) {
    var result = 0,
        num_digits = [];
    while (num) {
        num_digits.push(num % 10);
        num = Math.floor(num / 10);
    }
    for (var index_num = 0; index_num < num_digits.length; index_num++) {
        var n = 0;
        for (var i = num_digits.length - 1; i >= 0; i--) {
            if (i !== index_num) {
                n = n * 10 + num_digits[i];
            }
        }
        result = Math.max(n, result);
    }
    return result;
}

console.log(digit_delete(100));
console.log(digit_delete(10));
console.log(digit_delete(1245)); 

Sample Output:

10
1
245

console.log(digit_delete(1245));

JavaScript: Tips of the Day

Converts a string to title case

Example:

const toTitleCase = str =>
  str
    .match(/[A-Z]{2,}(?=[A-Z][a-z]+[0-9]*|\b)|[A-Z]?[a-z]+[0-9]*|[A-Z]|[0-9]+/g)
    .map(x => x.charAt(0).toUpperCase() + x.slice(1))
    .join(' ');
console.log(toTitleCase('some_database_field_name')); // 'Some Database Field Name'
console.log(toTitleCase('Some label that needs to be title-cased')); // 'Some Label That Needs To Be Title Cased'
console.log(toTitleCase('some-package-name')); // 'Some Package Name'
console.log(toTitleCase('some-mixed_string with spaces_underscores-and-hyphens')); // 'Some Mixed String With Spaces Underscores And Hyphens' 

Output:

"Some Database Field Name"
"Some Label That Needs To Be Title Cased"
"Some Package Name"
"Some Mixed String With Spaces Underscores And Hyphens"
