FileListToArray recursive with max depth

29 posts in this topic

Hello there.

I played arround with many FileListToArray scripts but none of them does it job as I want to.

I have a structure like this:

\\server\share\folder\123\456\20101130\*.pdf

\\server\share\folder\123\456\20101129\*.pdf

...

\\server\share\folder\123\456\Blah1.csv

\\server\share\folder\123\456\Blah2.csv

...

My problem is, that I want to find only the *.csv files. The daily dirs with many *.pdf inside should be ignored.

So I have to use a script which I can tell the maximum recursive search depth.

The scripts I used searches the whole path and I have to filter for the csv's. This searches takes a long time because of the mass of pdf's.

Can somebody help me ?

phonk,

My version of a recursive filesearch allows you to set masks for the files to find so you will only get the *.csv files you want returned. You cannot set a level of recursion, but it is pretty quick. :(

If you want to give it a try, you can find it here. Please ask if you have problems setting the correct parameters. :graduated:

Thank you.

I tried your script, but its not as fast as I need to. In my testcase I have ca. 3 % of the final data size. In this case the search takes about 5 minutes only to find 56 csv files.

For the normal operation the script will need over 1 hour to do this job.

So, an depth parameter is really needed :-(

phonk,

Must be a really big folder tree! :D

Try this minimalist version where I have added a depth limit. If you set the $iMaxLevel parameter to 0 it basically does not do a recursive search - for each additional 1 added to the parameter it searches another level down. I have hard coded it for *.csv files (becasue that is what you are searching for) but that is easy to change if needed. :(

#include <Array.au3> ; Just for demo

_DriveList("Your_Path", 1) ; This is searching to one level down

Func _DriveList($sInitialPath, $iMaxLevel = 0)

    Local $asFolderList[2][2] = [[1, 0], [0, 0]]
    Local $asFileList[1] = [0]

    ; Add trailing \ if required
    If StringRight($sInitialPath, 1) <> "\" Then $sInitialPath = $sInitialPath & "\"
    ; Store result
    $asFolderList[1][0] = $sInitialPath

    ; Search in listed folders
    While $asFolderList[0][0] > 0

        ; Check if we have exceeded the level limit
        If $asFolderList[$asFolderList[0][0]][1] <= $iMaxLevel Then

            ; Set current level
            $iCurrLevel = $asFolderList[$asFolderList[0][0]][1]

            ; Set path to search
            $sCurrentPath = $asFolderList[$asFolderList[0][0]][0]
            ; Reduce folder array count
            $asFolderList[0][0] -= 1

            ; Get Search handle
            $hSearch = FileFindFirstFile($sCurrentPath & "*.csv")

            ; If folder empty move to next in list
            If $hSearch = -1 Then ContinueLoop

            ; Search folder
            While 1
                $sName = FileFindNextFile($hSearch)
                ; Check for end of folder
                If @error Then ExitLoop
                ; Check for subfolder - @extended set in 3.3.1.1 +
                If @extended Then ; Add to folder list
                    ; Increase folder list count
                    $asFolderList[0][0] += 1
                    ; Double folder list size if too small (fewer ReDim needed)
                    If UBound($asFolderList) <= $asFolderList[0][0] Then ReDim $asFolderList[UBound($asFolderList) * 2][2]
                    ; Add folder name
                    $asFolderList[$asFolderList[0][0]][0] = $sCurrentPath & $sName & "\"
                    ; Add folder level
                    $asFolderList[$asFolderList[0][0]][1] = $iCurrLevel + 1
                Else ; Add to file list
                    ; Increase file list count
                    $asFileList[0] += 1
                    ; Double file list size if too small (fewer ReDim needed)
                    If UBound($asFileList) <= $asFileList[0] Then ReDim $asFileList[UBound($asFileList) * 2]
                    ; Add file name
                    $asFileList[$asFileList[0]] = $sCurrentPath & $sName
                EndIf
            WEnd

            ; Close current search
            FileClose($hSearch)

        Else

            ; Reduce folder array count
            $asFolderList[0][0] -= 1

        EndIf

    WEnd

    ; Remove any unused return list elements from last ReDim
    ReDim $asFileList[$asFileList[0] + 1]

    ; Display results
    _ArrayDisplay($asFileList) ; Just for demo - will take a long time if you have a lot of files

EndFunc   ;==>_DriveList

Let me know how it does - it is working fine for me. :graduated:

Hmmm, it seems only to search the given path. It doesn't go into depth with the given parameter .. :-(

phonk,

Ooops! :graduated:

Trying to hard code it for just *.csv files, I ended up also only looking for *.csv subfolders - no wonder it would not go into the tree! :D

Try this version: :D

#include <Array.au3> ; Just for demo

_DriveList("Your_Path", 0) ; This is searching to one level down

Func _DriveList($sInitialPath, $iMaxLevel = 0)

    Local $asFolderList[2][2] = [[1, 0], [0, 0]]
    Local $asFileList[1] = [0]

    ; Add trailing \ if required
    If StringRight($sInitialPath, 1) <> "\" Then $sInitialPath = $sInitialPath & "\"
    ; Store result
    $asFolderList[1][0] = $sInitialPath

    ; Search in listed folders
    While $asFolderList[0][0] > 0

        ; Check if we have exceeded the level limit
        If $asFolderList[$asFolderList[0][0]][1] <= $iMaxLevel Then

            ; Set current level
            $iCurrLevel = $asFolderList[$asFolderList[0][0]][1]

            ; Set path to search
            $sCurrentPath = $asFolderList[$asFolderList[0][0]][0]
            ; Reduce folder array count
            $asFolderList[0][0] -= 1

            ; Get Search handle
            $hSearch = FileFindFirstFile($sCurrentPath & "*.*")

            ; If folder empty move to next in list
            If $hSearch = -1 Then ContinueLoop

            ; Search folder
            While 1
                $sName = FileFindNextFile($hSearch)
                ; Check for end of folder
                If @error Then ExitLoop
                ; Check for subfolder - @extended set in 3.3.1.1 +
                If @extended Then ; Add to folder list
                    ; Increase folder list count
                    $asFolderList[0][0] += 1
                    ; Double folder list size if too small (fewer ReDim needed)
                    If UBound($asFolderList) <= $asFolderList[0][0] Then ReDim $asFolderList[UBound($asFolderList) * 2][2]
                    ; Add folder name
                    $asFolderList[$asFolderList[0][0]][0] = $sCurrentPath & $sName & "\"
                    ; Add folder level
                    $asFolderList[$asFolderList[0][0]][1] = $iCurrLevel + 1

                Else ; Add to file list if it is *.csv file

                    If StringRight($sName, 4) = ".csv" Then
                        ; Increase file list count
                        $asFileList[0] += 1
                        ; Double file list size if too small (fewer ReDim needed)
                        If UBound($asFileList) <= $asFileList[0] Then ReDim $asFileList[UBound($asFileList) * 2]
                        ; Add file name
                        $asFileList[$asFileList[0]] = $sCurrentPath & $sName
                    EndIf
                EndIf
            WEnd

            ; Close current search
            FileClose($hSearch)

        Else

        ; Reduce folder array count
            $asFolderList[0][0] -= 1

        EndIf

    WEnd

    ; Remove any unused return list elements from last ReDim
    ReDim $asFileList[$asFileList[0] + 1]

    ; Display results
    _ArrayDisplay($asFileList) ; Just for demo - will take a long time if you have a lot of files

EndFunc   ;==>_DriveList

Sorry about that - I think this one might do the trick. :(

Yes much better,

But I think the script searches now in the first depth for *.csv ?

Because I set the max Level to 4, but only the first subdirs under the init path are listed in my ConsoleWrite of $sCurrentPath

For understanding:

The Structure goes like this:

SOURCEPATH\001\001\*.csv

SOURCEPATH\002\001\*.csv

SOURCEPATH\002\002\*.csv

and so on.

Furthermore I had to put some "Local" into your Script:

Func _DriveList($sInitialPath, $iMaxLevel = 4)

    Local $asFolderList[2][2] = [[1, 0], [0, 0]]
    Local $asFileList[1] = [0]

    ; Add trailing \ if required
    If StringRight($sInitialPath, 1) <> "\" Then $sInitialPath = $sInitialPath & "\"
    ; Store result
    $asFolderList[1][0] = $sInitialPath

    ; Search in listed folders
    While $asFolderList[0][0] > 0

        ; Check if we have exceeded the level limit
        If $asFolderList[$asFolderList[0][0]][1] <= $iMaxLevel Then

            ; Set current level
            Local $iCurrLevel = $asFolderList[$asFolderList[0][0]][1]
            ConsoleWrite($iCurrLevel & @LF)
            ; Set path to search
            Local $sCurrentPath = $asFolderList[$asFolderList[0][0]][0]
            ConsoleWrite($sCurrentPath & @LF)
            ; Reduce folder array count
            $asFolderList[0][0] -= 1

            ; Get Search handle
            Local $hSearch = FileFindFirstFile($sCurrentPath & "*.*")

            ; If folder empty move to next in list
            If $hSearch = -1 Then ContinueLoop

            ; Search folder
            While 1
                Local $sName = FileFindNextFile($hSearch)
                ; Check for end of folder
                If @error Then ExitLoop
                ; Check for subfolder - @extended set in 3.3.1.1 +
                If @extended Then ; Add to folder list
                    ; Increase folder list count
                    $asFolderList[0][0] += 1
                    ; Double folder list size if too small (fewer ReDim needed)
                    If UBound($asFolderList) <= $asFolderList[0][0] Then ReDim $asFolderList[UBound($asFolderList) * 2][2]
                    ; Add folder name
                    $asFolderList[$asFolderList[0][0]][0] = $sCurrentPath & $sName & "\"
                    ; Add folder level
                    $asFolderList[$asFolderList[0][0]][1] = $iCurrLevel + 1

                Else ; Add to file list if it is *.csv file

                    If StringRight($sName, 4) = ".csv" Then
                        ; Increase file list count
                        $asFileList[0] += 1
                        ; Double file list size if too small (fewer ReDim needed)
                        If UBound($asFileList) <= $asFileList[0] Then ReDim $asFileList[UBound($asFileList) * 2]
                        ; Add file name
                        $asFileList[$asFileList[0]] = $sCurrentPath & $sName
                    EndIf
                EndIf
            WEnd

            ; Close current search
            FileClose($hSearch)

        Else

        ; Reduce folder array count
            $asFolderList[0][0] -= 1

        EndIf

    WEnd

    ; Remove any unused return list elements from last ReDim
    ReDim $asFileList[$asFileList[0] + 1]

    ; Display results
    _ArrayDisplay($asFileList) ; Just for demo - will take a long time if you have a lot of files

EndFunc   ;==>_DriveList

phonk,

It works for me - I can go down as far as I want into my local tree. Perhaps there is something different about networks? :graduated:

This script has added lines to tell you which folders it is searching and which it is ignoring - try gradually increasing the $iMaxLevel parameter and see if it searches where you think it should. As I said before, it is working fine for me:

#include <Array.au3> ; Just for demo

_DriveList("M:\Program\Au3 Scripts\Snippets", 1) ; This is searching to one level down

Func _DriveList($sInitialPath, $iMaxLevel = 0)

    Local $asFolderList[2][2] = [[1, 0], [0, 0]]
    Local $asFileList[1] = [0]

    ; Add trailing \ if required
    If StringRight($sInitialPath, 1) <> "\" Then $sInitialPath = $sInitialPath & "\"
    ; Store result
    $asFolderList[1][0] = $sInitialPath

    ; Search in listed folders
    While $asFolderList[0][0] > 0

        ; Check if we have exceeded the level limit
        If $asFolderList[$asFolderList[0][0]][1] <= $iMaxLevel Then

            ConsoleWrite("+ Searching: " & $asFolderList[$asFolderList[0][0]][0] & @CRLF)

            ; Set current level
            $iCurrLevel = $asFolderList[$asFolderList[0][0]][1]

            ; Set path to search
            $sCurrentPath = $asFolderList[$asFolderList[0][0]][0]
            ; Reduce folder array count
            $asFolderList[0][0] -= 1

            ; Get Search handle
            $hSearch = FileFindFirstFile($sCurrentPath & "*.*")

            ; If folder empty move to next in list
            If $hSearch = -1 Then ContinueLoop

            ; Search folder
            While 1
                $sName = FileFindNextFile($hSearch)
                ; Check for end of folder

                ; Check for subfolder - @extended set in 3.3.1.1 +

                    ; Double folder list size if too small (fewer ReDim needed)
                    If UBound($asFolderList) <= $asFolderList[0][0] Then ReDim $asFolderList[UBound($asFolderList) * 2][2]
                    ; Add folder name
                    $asFolderList[$asFolderList[0][0]][0] = $sCurrentPath & $sName & "\"
                    ; Add folder level
                    $asFolderList[$asFolderList[0][0]][1] = $iCurrLevel + 1

                Else ; Add to file list if it is *.csv file

                    If StringRight($sName, 4) = ".csv" Then
                        ; Increase file list count
                        $asFileList[0] += 1
                        ; Double file list size if too small (fewer ReDim needed)
                        If UBound($asFileList) <= $asFileList[0] Then ReDim $asFileList[UBound($asFileList) * 2]
                        ; Add file name
                        $asFileList[$asFileList[0]] = $sCurrentPath & $sName
                    EndIf
                EndIf
            WEnd

            ; Close current search
            FileClose($hSearch)

        Else

            ConsoleWrite("! Ignoring: " & $asFolderList[$asFolderList[0][0]][0] & @CRLF)

            $asFolderList[0][0] -= 1

        EndIf

    WEnd

    ; Remove any unused return list elements from last ReDim
    ReDim $asFileList[$asFileList[0] + 1]

    ; Display results
    _ArrayDisplay($asFileList) ; Just for demo - will take a long time if you have a lot of files

EndFunc   ;==>_DriveList

If you are going to get that picky you can develop the solution yourself! :(

Ah, this Output covers up an "Error between Headphones" from myself :-)

Your Script worked fine, but I played arround with the $iMaxLevel = 0 and forgot that I call the function with the parameter 1 which permenantly overwrites the $iMaxLevel = X

Thank your very much, now it works as fast as I can live with ...

Would you be so kind and test my script, too?

phonk,

Delighted you got it working. Looks like a draw on the "seat-keyboard" interface problems! :(

UEZ,

Your code works fine for me - once I realised that your level is +1 relative to mine. :graduated:

I defined it this way:

e.g. network path:

\\server1\software is level 0 whereas

\\server1\software\test1\test2 is level 2

phonk,

If you are still interested, I have developed a new version of my full recursive search UDF with the added possibility to limit the search level as you required. :P

If you need to limit the search level, you merely set the $iRecur parameter to the negative of the level you want (i.e. -2 for 2 levels down). Why negative? That way I avoid script-breaking changes to the UDF - positive 1 already meant unlimited recursion. :shifty:

Deathbringer,

Thank you for having taken the time to comment and test. :x

Is there any way to make it sort faster?

If you knew the time I have spent getting that sort algorithm to go as fast as it does now! :nuke: Seriously, the array functions in AutoIt are not the fastest - as you can see I rewrote the existing UDF code to streamline it as much as possible by removing nearly all error-checking (for example checking if the parameters are actually arrays) and redundant code (such as multiple dimension checking). I also wanted a very particular sort result where, if files and folders are listed with paths, the files follow their folder - a straight alphabetic sort does not give you that necessarily. That drove up the time a little but you can, of course, turn the sorting off if you wish.

less than a tenth of the size of your UDF

Given the size of compiled AutoIt scripts I am not losing any sleep over that. :shifty:

The speed comparisons are interesting. I did an awful lot of these using various search and sort algorithms while developing the UDF and found that it is the very first run where the code takes time - something which I imagine would affect any code as the FileFindFirst/NextFile calls have to read the disk directly. The results were pretty stable (and much faster) once the path data was in the cache. I never tested it against a raw DOS search - I must confess I am quite pleased at the results you posted.

Thanks again for the comments. :P

Deathbringer,

I assumed that if I reversed the order by which $asFolderSearchList was processed, then the directories would be in order without the need to be sorted

Not a valid assumption I am afraid. You can get the files/folder returned in non-sorted order (in my experience on 98/XP/Vista it seems to depend mainly on the order they were created on the disk) - they are not necessarily be in alphabetic order in all cases. :x

I do not want to rain on your parade, but that is why I found the various sorts were necessary. Now it might well be that your specific folder/file structure is such that you do get them in the order you require, but I would be careful making the assumption that it will be the case for all searches. :P

Deathbringer,

Certainly my experience has been that files are not necessarily returned in alphabetical order - but it is your function! :P

As to recursion level, you unwind the recursion each time you come back up so I forsee no problems there - but if you are concerned you can check it with this slightly modified script to show how deep you are going. AutoIt has a recursion limit of 5100 - I get nowhere near it even on very deep trees: :x

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Au3Check_Parameters=-q -d -w 1 -w 2 -w 3 -w 4 -w 5 -w 6
#include <Array.au3>
#NoTrayIcon

Global $sCurrentPath = @ScriptDir & "\"
Global $asFolderSearchList[100] = [1, $sCurrentPath]

_Test($sCurrentPath)

Func _Test($sInitialPath)
    Local $iTimer = TimerInit()
    Local $hSearch = FileFindFirstFile($sInitialPath & "*"), $sName
    While 1
        $sName = FileFindNextFile($hSearch)
        If @error Then ExitLoop
        If Not @extended Then ContinueLoop
        _RFLTA_AddToList($asFolderSearchList, $sInitialPath & $sName)
        _GetSubDirs($sInitialPath & $sName, 1)
    WEnd
    FileClose($hSearch)
    ReDim $asFolderSearchList[$asFolderSearchList[0] + 1]
    ConsoleWrite("! Total - " & TimerDiff($iTimer) & @CRLF)
    _ArrayDisplay($asFolderSearchList)
EndFunc   ;==>_Test

Func _GetSubDirs($sPath_Sub, $iCurrLevel)
    ConsoleWrite("Searching Level " & $iCurrLevel & @CRLF)
    Local $hSearch_Sub = FileFindFirstFile($sPath_Sub & "\*"), $sName_Sub
    While 1
        $sName_Sub = FileFindNextFile($hSearch_Sub)
        If @error Then ExitLoop
        If Not @extended Then ContinueLoop
        _RFLTA_AddToList($asFolderSearchList, $sPath_Sub & "\" & $sName_Sub)
        _GetSubDirs($sPath_Sub & "\" & $sName_Sub, $iCurrLevel + 1)
    WEnd
    FileClose($hSearch_Sub)
EndFunc   ;==>_GetSubDirs

Func _RFLTA_AddToList(ByRef $asList, $sValue)
    $asList[0] += 1
    If UBound($asList) <= $asList[0] Then ReDim $asList[UBound($asList) * 2]
    $asList[$asList[0]] = $sValue
EndFunc   ;==>_RFLTA_AddToList

Edit:

Found this on MSDN - looks like you should be OK on NTFS. Perhaps it was my Win98/FAT experience that coloured my impressions:

"The order in which this function returns the file names is dependent on the file system type. With the NTFS file system and CDFS file systems, the names are usually returned in alphabetical order. With FAT file systems, the names are usually returned in the order the files were written to the disk, which may or may not be in alphabetical order. However, as stated previously, these behaviors are not guaranteed."

Hi M23,

Can use show me example code using this UDF? I would like to search folder ABC from $source_folder. If found then copy entire folder to $dest_folder. If not found that find any files which name contain string ABC in it and copy to $dest_folder

Thanks for your help and your time :)
