Chapter 3: Manipulating Data In This Chapter Using assignment and math operators Understanding string manipulation Using comparison and Boolean operators Performing data type conversions Every program accepts data from the outside world, manipulates that data in some way, and then calculates a useful result. Data can be ✦ Numbers ✦ Text ✦ Input from a keyboard, controller, or joystick (for a video game) To manipulate numbers, computers can perform a variety of mathematical operations, which is just a fancy way of saying a computer can add, subtract, multiply, and divide. To manipulate text (or strings, as in “text strings”), computers can perform a variety of string manipulation operations, which can chop out a letter of a word or rearrange the letters that make up a word. Every programming language provides built-in commands (operators) for manipulating numbers and strings, but some programming languages are better at manipulating numbers (or strings) than others. For example, FORTRAN is specifically designed to make scientific calculations easy, so FORTRAN has more operators for mathematical operations than a language such as SNOBOL, which was designed primarily for manipulating text strings. You can still manipulate strings in FORTRAN or calculate mathematical equations in SNOBOL; however, you need to write a lot more commands to do so.
Agreed in 2016, the motive of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is to better protect the personal data of European Union “data subjects” – EU citizens and other nationals physically present in the EU at the time data are collected. Visit: https://www.hipaajournal.com/gdpr-training/
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was created primarily to modernize the flow of healthcare information, stipulate how Personally Identifiable Information maintained by the healthcare and healthcare insurance industries should be protected from fraud and theft, and address limitations on healthcare insurance coverage – such as portability and the coverage of individuals with pre-existing conditions.
