(Edited from original. Please note that I AM NOT AN AUTOIT EXPERT. I write code using Autoit frequently but I am no expert, especially when it comes to I/O. So any remarks that start with "Why did you..." can be answered by referring to the first sentence. This project was done in Autoit because of an interface I built to display the data.)
Attached is a program and ascii input file I wrote to read stock price data, convert it to binary and then read it back into the program in binary. The goal was to show increased performance for reading the files in binary and provide a demo on how to read/write binary for int32, int64, double and strings for anyone who might find it helpful. The results on my PC show the following:
Time to read ascii file only: 456.981951167202
Ascii read & process time: 6061.83075631701
Binary write file time: 14787.9184635239
Time just to read binary file: 42.418867292311
Binary read and process time: 4515.16129830537
A couple things to note:
1) The 32 MB ascii file took 10x longer to read than the 15 MB binary file. Not entirely sure why. Both were read into a buffer.
2) The Binary write takes a long time but I made no effort to optimize this because the plan was to write this file one time only so I don't mind if it takes longer to write this file. I care much more about how long it takes to read the file because I will be reading it many times.
3) There was a modest gain in converting the ascii file to binary in terms of file size and reading speed.
So big picture... not sure it's worth the effort to convert the files to binary even though most of the data is numerical data in the binary file. That was actually surprising as I expected there would be more of a difference. Any ideas on how to get the binary data to read at a faster rate would be great.
i have a script that let you type text then give a random result on an output box, writes the result on a text file and tries to add the result text to an edit box but doesn't support multiple lines. I want the script to add lines of results on the edit box (as a log of results)

I am trying to get an image showing through a edit box. I am only successful in making the edit box totally transparent
#include-once #include <GUIConstants.au3> #include <GDIPlus.au3> #include <WinAPISys.au3> #include <colorconstants.au3> ;WS_EX_TRANSPARENT $gui = GUICreate("", 1000, 800, -1, -1, -1 , $WS_EX_LAYERED) ; use layered to get _winapi_setlay... to work $pic = GUICtrlCreatePic("c:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Examples\GUI\Merlin.gif", 0,0,1000, 800) GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE) $edit = GUICtrlCreateEdit("First line" & @CRLF, 176, 32,200,600) GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1,$COLOR_YELLOW) _WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes($gui,$COLOR_YELLOW,199) ; 199 is alpha (transparency level) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW,$gui) While 1 $msg = GuiGetMsg() Select Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ExitLoop Case Else EndSelect WEnd Exit Func Terminate() exit(0) EndFunc So I am making the edit box's background yellow then using the _WINAPI_SetLayeredWIndowAttributes command to make the yellow disappear (which it does), but the alpha level is supposed to give a bit of opaqueness to it, but its not, just making it totally transparent. The alpha level is in fact affecting the window itself and not the edit box. I only want the edit box to be partially transparent.
I'm trying to read a binary file to an array but couln't get it to work.
Also I coul not find any help in the forum around this subject whish was helpfull.
Is there any way it could be done?
I tried a lot of ways but maybe somebody know's the right way?
