JavaScript: Check whether a given string contains equal number of p's and t's

Sample Solution:

HTML Code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>

</head>
<body>

</body>
</html>

JavaScript Code:

function equal_pt(str)
{ 
  var str_p = str.replace(/[^p]/g, "");

  var str_t = str.replace(/[^t]/g, "");

  var p_num = str_p.length;
  var s_num = str_t.length;

  return p_num === s_num;
         
}
console.log(equal_pt("paatpss"));
console.log(equal_pt("paatps"));

JavaScript: Tips of the Day

Parameter's value

function getItems(fruitList, ...args, favoriteFruit) {
  return [...fruitList, ...args, favoriteFruit]
}

getItems(["banana", "apple"], "pear", "orange")

...args is a rest parameter. The rest parameter's value is an array containing all remaining arguments, and can only be the last parameter! In this example, the rest parameter was the second parameter. This is not possible, and will throw a syntax error.

function getItems(fruitList, favoriteFruit, ...args) {
  return [...fruitList, ...args, favoriteFruit];
}


getItems(['banana', 'apple'], 'pear', 'orange');
The above example works. This returns the array [ 'banana', 'apple', 'orange', 'pear' ].
