Joining Variables?

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello,

is it possible to join variables so like this...

$i = 0
$downloads = ""
$movieLink = "http://somewebsite.com/movie.wmv"

While $i < 5

   $downloads & $i = InetGet($movieLink, "C:\WCM Downloads\" & $i & ".wmv", 1, 1)

sleep(100)
$i = $i+1
Wend

What im trying to get is for the variable $downloads to become $downloads0, $downloads1, $downloads2.

I know its a bad example but is it possible to do so?

Well once the syntax error in line 10 is corrected, this works (I tested it with consolewrite($downloads & $i)), there might be and probably is a more efficient way of doing this, but I don't know.

Have you read up about arrays? they are the correct way to do as you say.

; First we initialize the array. The 5 is the amount of elements we want.
Local $downloads[5]
Local $movieLink = "http://somewebsite.com/movie.wmv"

For $i = 1 To 5 Step + 1

    ; Indexes start from 0! Take one from $i.
    $downloads[$i - 1] = InetGet($movieLink, "C:\WCM Downloads\" & $i & ".wmv", 1, 1)
    sleep(100)
Next
