# Exercise: Slices

Implement `Pic`

. It should return a slice of length `dy`

, each element of which is a slice of `dx`

8-bit unsigned integers. When you run the program, it will display your picture, interpreting the integers as grayscale (well, bluescale) values.

The choice of image is up to you. Interesting functions include `(x+y)/2`

, `x*y`

, and `x^y`

.

package mainimport (

"golang.org/x/tour/pic"

)func Pic(dx, dy int) [][]uint8 {

//using make to create a slice of length dy

pic := make([][]uint8, dy) for i := 0; i < dy; i++ {

//using make to create a slice of length dx

pic[i] = make([]uint8, dx)

} //creating image

for y, _ := range pic {

for x, _ := range pic[y] {

//choice for image

//pic[y][x] = uint8(x ^ y)

pic[y][x] = uint8(x+y)/2

//pic[y][x] = uint8(x-y)

//pic[y][x] = uint8((x <<uint8(y))/2)

}

}

return pic

}func main() {

pic.Show(Pic)

}

Output:

Simple and straight forward let me know if there is a better solution (:
