StringRepeat - very fast (using memset)


Recommended Posts

This function is very fast compared to standard _StringRepeat() when number of repeated chars is big.

In my tests this version is faster than original for > 50 chars.

Time needed for this new StringRepeat() is constant no matter how many chars you repeat (nCount)

so for big numbers of repeated characters it's MUCH FASTER (hundred times).

StringRepeat Function:

Func StringRepeat($sChar, $nCount)
    $tBuffer = DLLStructCreate("char[" & $nCount & "]")
    DllCall("msvcrt.dll", "ptr:cdecl", "memset", "ptr", DLLStructGetPtr($tBuffer), "int", Asc($sChar), "int", $nCount)
    Return DLLStructGetData($tBuffer, 1)
EndFunc

Testing example for compare speed with standard _StringRepeat (try to change number of chars):

#include <String.au3>

$start = TimerInit()
_StringRepeat('a',1000)
ConsoleWrite(TimerDiff($start)& @CRLF)

$start = TimerInit()
StringRepeat('a',1000)
ConsoleWrite(TimerDiff($start)& @CRLF)

Func StringRepeat($sChar, $nCount)
    $tBuffer = DLLStructCreate("char[" & $nCount & "]")
    DllCall("msvcrt.dll", "ptr:cdecl", "memset", "ptr", DLLStructGetPtr($tBuffer), "int", Asc($sChar), "int", $nCount)
    Return DLLStructGetData($tBuffer, 1)
EndFunc

EDIT:

There is one difference/limitation from original _StringRepeat(): This new StringRepeat() can repeat only one character, so it's not posiible to do: StringRepeat('abc',3) --> result is 'aaa'

Maybe I should change its name from StringRepeat() to CharRepeat()

EDIT2:

Here is MemSet in form of UDF:

Func MemSet($pDest, $nChar, $nCount)
    DllCall("msvcrt.dll", "ptr:cdecl", "memset", "ptr", $pDest, "int", $nChar, "int", $nCount)
    If @error Then Return SetError(1,0,False)
    Return True
EndFunc

Nice trick, can be used to change part of the buffers too.

$nCount = 100
$sChar = "a"
$tBuffer = DllStructCreate("char[" & $nCount & "]")
DllCall("msvcrt.dll", "ptr:cdecl", "memset", "ptr", DllStructGetPtr($tBuffer), "int", Asc($sChar), "int", $nCount)
ConsoleWrite(DllStructGetData($tBuffer, 1) & @CRLF)
DllCall("msvcrt.dll", "ptr:cdecl", "memset", "ptr", DllStructGetPtr($tBuffer) + 5, "int", Asc("b"), "int", 10)
ConsoleWrite(DllStructGetData($tBuffer, 1) & @CRLF)
DllCall("msvcrt.dll", "ptr:cdecl", "memset", "ptr", DllStructGetPtr($tBuffer) + 5, "int", Asc(" "), "int", 10)
ConsoleWrite(DllStructGetData($tBuffer, 1) & @CRLF)
DllCall("msvcrt.dll", "ptr:cdecl", "memset", "ptr", DllStructGetPtr($tBuffer) + 50, "int", Asc(" "), "int", DllStructGetSize($tBuffer) - 50)
ConsoleWrite(DllStructGetData($tBuffer, 1) & @CRLF)
DllCall("msvcrt.dll", "ptr:cdecl", "memset", "ptr", DllStructGetPtr($tBuffer) + 75, "int", Asc("z"), "int", DllStructGetSize($tBuffer) - 75)
ConsoleWrite(DllStructGetData($tBuffer, 1) & @CRLF)

Here is old Feature request for native AutoIt's function StringRepeat()

where Jon wasn't against adding it.

Due to the limitation this won't be replacing the currently implemented _StringRepeat.

You can always do something like

$s = StringRepeat("abc", 10)
ConsoleWrite($s & @CRLF)
Exit

Func StringRepeat($sChar, $nCount, $msvcrt = "msvcrt.dll")
   $nLen = StringLen($sChar)
   $tBuffer = DLLStructCreate("char[" & ($nLen * $nCount) & "]")
   $aSplit = StringSplit($sChar, "")
   $pBase = DLLStructGetPtr($tBuffer)
   For $n = 1 to UBound($aSplit)-1
      DllCall($msvcrt, "ptr:cdecl", "memset", "ptr", $pBase + ($n - 1), "int", Asc($aSplit[$n]), "int", 1)
   Next
   For $n = 0 To $nCount - 1
      DllCall($msvcrt, "ptr:cdecl", "memcpy", "ptr", $pBase + ($n * $nLen), "ptr", $pBase, "int", $nLen)
   Next
   Return DLLStructGetData($tBuffer, 1)
EndFunc

but I have no clue if that's OK due to my limited C++ knowledge. I didn't speed test because I think it will be much slower.

I highly doubt this. I will have a look at your changes and see if it's worth replacing with the current UDF. I will however be changing the function as it currently uses a Select...EndSelect for some reason.

Here is another StringRepeat example.

Thanks. Though StringFormat increases the execution time unfortunately.

Neither the production version nor this DLL version seem very fast.

This one-liner screams along for any size string but due to numeric limitations only works for 15 or less repeats ($nCount):

Return StringReplace(10 ^ $nCount - 1, "9", $sChar)

This is also just as fast but only handles as high an $nCount value as characters in the local constant:

Local $str = "@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@"
 Return StringReplace(StringLeft($str, $nCount), "@", $sChar)

IMHO, I don't see a need for a rarely-used UDF function that only replaces the following:

For $x = 1 To $iRepeatCount
    $sResult &= $sString

I was searching Google for something and it led me to this link.

After looking at it, and looking at guinness's concerns, I'd like to chime in.

1. IMO, there's no error for a function like this. The person(s) using the function are responsible for managing their parameters.

2. Anything using DllStruct-Create/GetData whatever, is going to be slower normally than a simple concatenation. The only time I could see this being different maybe, is if the strings are huge and memory starts to get eaten up, but AutoIt's memory management is pretty well setup, so I don't see that really happening. This is true for single Chars or 2+Chars.

3. StringFormat(); well, it's not meant for speed, that's for sure.

Long story short, the only way I can see it being faster:

1. For long strings, dllcall to dll that manages the data itself without having to manage struct usage inside AutoIt.

2. Get rid of error checking.

3. We can save 1 loop cycle doing it the below way.

Func _StringRepeat($sString, $nCount)

    If $sString = Chr(0) Then Return

    Local $sRStr = $sString
    For $i = 1 To Int($nCount) - 1
        $sRStr &= $sString
    Next

    Return $sRStr
EndFunc

Edit:

This may be faster even:

Func _StringRepeat($sString, $nCount)

    Local $iLen = StringLen($sString)
    If $iLen = 0 Then Return

    Local $iMax = $iLen * $nCount
    While StringLen($sString) < $iMax
        $sString &= $sString
    WEnd
    Return StringLeft($sString, $iMax)
EndFunc

Edit2:

The last one has my vote. After benchmarking each, it was the most consistent in time to finish ( loops tested from 1 to 500 repeats over and over ). At a certain point, it was never more than 3 or 4 milliseconds, while the others were 10, 20, 30+ milliseconds as the string grew (makes sense).

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

I don't know how you benchmarked that, but that statement is not true.

Edit:

I just realized this was not a thread on this subject exactly, that it was a thread on using memset specifically for this, I will not hijack any further.

My apologies Zedna.

@guinness

In this case Select / EndSelect is slower than If / EndIf?

Inline is not slower,

If BitAND($iRepeatCount, 1) Then $sResult &= $sString

than this way:?

If BitAND($iRepeatCount, 1) Then
    $sResult &= $sString
EndIf

      Hi, 
      I have a string like this : 
      Global $Msga = "urrent directory is /send.  (Submission of file with log number 29381077284 is confirmed)";
      I want to extract the number 29381077284  from the string. I did StringSplit to split based on "(" and then use space to reach there, But it's not a good choice. 
      Can anyone help me with regular expression to find the number from String using AutoIT. TIA
    • By DannyJ
      I have this example string:
       
      2020-06-08 09:23:33 : abcdefghifjklm How to trim just the right part? Or how to trim this text right to left?
      I want to trim this string right to left until ' : '.
      In ohter words: I need the 'abcdefghifklm' text.
      I have tried StringTrimRight, but that requires 
      The number of characters to trim. Unfortunately StringSplit trims the left part of the strings.

      This is my take on string triggers, triggers on specific strings.
      Able to simple text pasting,
      opening links (as long as there's a www. http:\\ or https:\\ at the beggining)
      and is able to open applications, if there is a parameter in the parameter field, it uses it.
      Shows your external, lan, and gateway ip's.
      Able to change system volume by a set percentage, reading from the inputbox the number the user sets, if 0 or empty uses system default.
      I made this because the existing string trigger applications didn't do it for me.
      I did this for me, but if someone finds it useful, all the better.

      Hi guys!, i have a problem to convert Python code to AutoIt code, in fact i had not coded with Python yet!, this code is about permutation a string's case, i will be happy with your comments :)❤;

      i am trying to get number from string using this code :
      #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IEAttach ("Edu.corner") Local $aName = "Student name & Code:", $iaName = "0" Local $oTds = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "td") For $oTd In $oTds If $oTd.InnerText = $aName Then $iaName = $oTd.NextElementSibling.InnerText $iGet = StringRegExpReplace($iaName, "\D", "") EndIf Next MsgBox(0, "", $iGet) it was get number like 52503058
      But, I want to get only student code 5250. (Different student have different code, sometime its 3 digits, Sometime 4)
