comparing Ubound arrays

5 posts in this topic

Hello members, I have attempted to search for what I'm looking for and I believe I'm wording it wrong or missing something obvious...

I am trying to compare two UBound array variables for a small updating program. This is just not flowing that smoothly with my brain as far as syntax goes, I am very new to this and just scratching the surface so bear with me! Any constructive criticism would be splendid. Here is where I'm stuck:

Local $getUpdates = FileRead(@UserProfileDir & '/desktop/updates_2.ini')
Local $netData = StringSplit($getUpdates, "[)", 1)
Local $localData = _FileListToArray(@UserProfileDir & '/desktop/updates/')

For $i = 5 To UBound($netData) - 1 ;<=== reads $netData, identical to $localData in example*
  For $n = 1 To UBound($localData) - 1 ;<=== reads $localData
  MsgBox(0,"",'netData: ' & $netData[$i] & ' localData: ' & $localData[$n]) ;<=== should display both as being equal
  Next
Next

;##### SAMPLE UPDATES FILE #####
; misc1[)misc2[)misc3[)misc4[)file1[)file2[)file3[)file4[)file5[)file6[)

Problem with above:

- the first variable repeats 5 times through the complete array of the second

- once proper, how can I compare the two and act upon a single changing variable in the array?

ex: $netdata[1] <> $localData[1] during the split and an action is performed?

Thank you =) I may have overcomplicated this...

!!! IT was so simple. After a few hours of contemplation and reflections of a troubled past here is what I did for anyone wondering the same thing! (?) :

Global $getUpdates = FileRead(@UserProfileDir & '/desktop/updates_2.ini')
Global $netData = StringSplit($getUpdates, "[)", 1)
Global $localData = _FileListToArray(@UserProfileDir & '/desktop/updates/')


For $n = 1 To UBound($localData) - 1
    Call("compare", $localData[$n])
Next

Func compare($localData)
For $i = 5 To UBound($netData) - 1
    If $netData[$i] = $localData Then
        MsgBox(0,"",'netData: ' & $netData[$i] & ' localData: ' & $localData)
    EndIf
Next
EndFunc

:oops:

Just so you know you could do it like this without the need for using Call.

#include <File.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
    Local $aSplit = StringSplit(FileRead(@UserProfileDir & '/desktop/updates_2.ini'), "[)", 1)
    Local $aFileList = _FileListToArray(@UserProfileDir & '/desktop/updates/')
    If Not @error Then ; Check that an @error wasn't returned.
        For $i = 1 To $aFileList[0]
            Compare($aSplit, $aFileList[$i]) ; No need for Call, just use the function instead.
        Next
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>Example

Func Compare($aArray, $sData)
    For $i = 5 To $aArray[0]
        If $aArray[$i] = $sData Then
            MsgBox(0, "", 'netData: ' & $aArray[$i] & ' localData: ' & $sData)
        EndIf
    Next
EndFunc   ;==>Compare

Aha, great :oops: In your Example code is Ubound unnecessary for $aFileList? I won't miss call one bit...I wonder why it's still there? ><

Call has it's uses but in this example it isn't required. UBound should be used when you don't know the size of the Array, but as the 0th element in the Array returned by _FileListToArray is the number of items (so overall size if $aArray[0] + 1) you just use that instead.
