How to count the times one element appears continuously in a serials of arrays?

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hey ,guys, I am a new comer here. I come across an troublesome problem:

Imagine there are five arrays:

$a1[5]=[1,2,3,4,5]

$a2[5]=[2,3,4,9,10]

$a3[5]=[2,1,3,4,7]

$a4[5]=[9,8,6,5,4]

$a5[5]=[3,2,1,5,6]

… …

The Element 2 appears in $a,$b and $c, so Element 2 appears 3 times continuously. The element 1 appears in $a and $c and $c, so element 1 does not appear any time continuously. I wonder how to to count the times any element appears continuously in such a serials of arrays. It seems complicated. Is there any simple method?

Thanks for you attention and you kind help.

eastern314,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

Interesting little problem. Probably not the most elegant solution, but it seems to work: ;)

#include <Array.au3>

Global $aArray[5][5] = [ _
                        [1, 2, 3, 4, 5], _
                        [2, 3, 4, 9, 10], _
                        [2, 1, 3, 4, 7], _
                        [9, 8, 6, 5, 4], _
                        [3, 2, 1, 5, 6]]

Global $aCount[11]
Global $aContinuous[11]
Global $aResults[11]

; For each line
For $i = 0 To 4

    ; Reset current values array
    Global $aCurrent[11]

    ; Run through elements and set Current elements
    For $j = 0 To 4
        $iItem = $aArray[$i][$j]
        $aCurrent[$iItem] = 1
    Next

    ; Go through elements and check continuity
    For $j = 1 To 10
        ; Is element present
        If $aCurrent[$j] Then
            ; Increase count
            $aContinuous[$j] += 1
        Else
            ; Not present so check for previous continuity
            If $aContinuous[$j] > 1 Then $aResults[$j] += 1
            $aContinuous[$j] = 0
        EndIf
    Next

Next

; Check for existing continuity
For $j = 1 To 10
    If $aContinuous[$j] > 1 Then $aResults[$j] += 1
Next

_ArrayDisplay($aResults, "Final Results")

I hope it does what you want. :idiot:

eastern314,

You need a certain number of posts (5?) before you get the ability to edit your posts. :)

If that does not do what you want, then what exactly do you want to do? I like little puzzles like this - keeps the litle grey cells active. :idiot:

P.S. When you reply please use the "Add Reply" button at the top and bottom of the page rather then the "Reply" button in the post itself. That way you do not get the contents of the previous post quoted in your reply and the whole thread becomes easier to read. ;)

Thanks for you help,M23. I thought about the problems over and over again and I suddenly got a good idea. If you have some suggestion, pls let me know, thanks.

Attached is an ini file from which I read the serial of arrays.

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <array.au3>

    $total=IniReadSection(@ScriptDir&"\test.ini","test")
    For $v=1 To 49
        Dim $period[31]
        Dim $t=0
        Dim $j=0,$value[31]
        For $i=0 To 30
            
            $period[$i]=StringSplit($total[$i][1],",")
            
            If _ArraySearch($period[$i],$v,1)>0 Then
                $t+=1           
            EndIf
            If _ArraySearch($period[$i],$v,1)>0 Then
                $value[$j]=1
                $j+=1
            EndIf
            If _ArraySearch($period[$i],$v,1)=-1 Then
                $value[$j]=0
                $j+=1
            EndIf
            
        Next
                        
            $a=StringReplace(_ArrayToString($value),"|","")
            $b=StringSplit($a,"0")
            Dim $two=0,$three=0,$four=0,$five=0
            For $p=1 To UBound($b)-1
                If $b[$p]="11" Then
                    $two+=1
                EndIf
                If $b[$p]="111" Then
                    $three+=1
                EndIf
                If $b[$p]="1111" Then
                    $four+=1
                EndIf
                ;If $b[$p]="11111" Then
                ;   $five+=1
                ;EndIf
                Next
                
                MsgBox(0,"","Number "&$v&" appears "&$t&" times in total; "&$two&" times appears twice continuously; "&$three&" times appears tripe continuously; "&$four&" times appears quartic continuously.")
            Next
