Array[-0]?

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Is there something like Array[-0] in AutoIt? IIRC that's how you obtain the final item of an array in Perl. Currently I'm using the below method to obtain the exe name to run. $full_path is a full path to an exe, which I don't know the number of sub directories to, so the location of the exe in the array changes, but is always the last one.

$myArray= StringSplit($full_path, '\', 1)
 
Dim $myArray
$arraynum = UBound($myArray)
$x = $arraynum - 1
$output = ""
For $r = 0 to UBound($myArray,1) - 1
    $output = $output & @LF
    For $c = 0 to UBound($myArray,2) - 1
        $output = $output & $myArray[$r][$c] & " "
    Next
Next
 
$dir = StringReplace($full_path, $myArray[$x], "", 0, 1) ;remove file.exe from fullpath
FileChangeDir($dir)
 
Run(@ComSpec & " /c " &  $myArray[$x] & " " & $CmdLine[1], "", @SW_HIDE)

Doh! I already had everything, just had a chunk of useless code attached. Thanks!

$sFullPath = "C:\Some\Long.\Path\That Is \Rife\ with\.stupidity\file.exe"
$sFldr = StringRegExpReplace($sFullPath, "^(.+\\).+$", "$1")
FileChangeDir($sFldr)

If you realloy need an array then

$sFullPath = "C:\Some\Long.\Path\That Is \Rife\ with\.stupidity\file.exe"
$aPath = StringRegExp($sFullPath, "^(.+\\)(.+)$", 1)
If NOT @Error Then
    FileChangeDir($aPath[0] ;; contains the folder path
    Run($aPath[1]) ;; contains only the file name
EndIf
