Looking for an elegant way to store coordinates

Recommended Posts


i got a bunch of coords that need to be saved/callable and im pretty unsure which method would be best to work with. May you have some ideas for me? Ill scribe what the data looks like:

-- resolution: 640,480
-- -- fx1: 100,100
-- -- fx2; 178,178
-- -- fx_n_incremented; somenumber,somenumber
-- resolution: 1336,1338
-- -- fx1: 0,0
-- -- fx_n_incremented: 999.999

There are like 200 f(x,y) to be solved per minute, writing them to an array results the script to look pretty unreadable. WWYD? ;D

Array example using stored x and y coords to draw lines all over the place in paint

msgbox(0, "", "don't touch the mouse or keyboard", 2)
$xymax= 2000;0..1999 is 2000
$xydatamax= 2;0..1 is 2
dim $xy[$xymax][$xydatamax]; this creates a 2 dimension array 0-1999 rows with 2 data members each
;loop fills the array with random values, your user could input them manualy too
for $i= 0 to $xymax-1
   $xy[$i][0]= random(100, @desktopwidth-100, 1);random x coord
   $xy[$i][1]= random(100, @desktopheight-100, 1);random y coord
;fun with paint
run("mspaint");open the paint
;winwaitactive("untitled - Paint");halt till paint active - I removed this in favor of sleep
sleep(400);sleep might be better language compatibly issues and all
send("^e");send resize surface command
;winwaitactive("Attributes");halt till resize canvas window open - removed in favor of sleep; seriously I never get sleep
sleep(300);wait till size window open
send(@desktopwidth&"{tab}"&@desktopheight&"{enter}");send new paint canvas size information to paint dialog
for $i= 0 to $xymax-1;this loop will draw lines to all the coords in $xy[][] array
   mousedown("left");we draw lines by holding down the left mouse button then moving the mouse
   mousemove($xy[$i][0], $xy[$i][1], 0);move mouse
   $cursor= mousegetpos();we wouldn't want to use $cursor undeclared
   while $cursor[0]<> $xy[$i][0] and $cursor[1]<> $xy[$i][1];halt while cursor moves (if not instant)
      $cursor= mousegetpos();get the mouse cursor position to test if it's reached it's destination xandy coord
mouseup("left");let the mouse button go
;pretty cool enjoy

It all depend on what you call "a bunch" and what exactly you intend to do with those coordinates...

What is your usage context?
