This must be a better way to do this (array compare)


Recommended Posts

I'm struggling with the following which is a sort of a "if these processes are running kill them".

Note the code below does work however it is a tad messy and not as dynamic as I would like.

The goal here is this. Find processes that are LIKE those in the $clist array and close them (aka kill them).

For example if notepad.exe is running kill it, if notepad++.exe is running kill it; cal.exe, calc.exe; cmd.exe, etc...

Local $clist[3] = ["notep", "cal", "cmd"]
Local $plist = ProcessList()
For $i = 1 To $plist[0][0]
$psname=$plist[$i][0]
$result = StringInStr($psname, $clist[2])
if $result <> 0 Then ProcessClose($psname)
$result = StringInStr($psname, $clist[1])
if $result <> 0 Then ProcessClose($psname)
$result = StringInStr($psname, $clist[0])
if $result <> 0 Then ProcessClose($psname)
Next

PS

If you really think I should use the array include please, if you can, recite which functions. I need the code to be as small as possible so I'll need to pull out those specific array functions.

Maybe Regular Expressions might shorten your code a bit. I'm no expert so can't give you any advice but maybe someone knowledgeable jumps in.

You don't need to do it yourself. When compiling the script select Obfuscator and use option /striponly to remove unused functions and variables.

awurthman,

try this

Local $clist[3] = ["notep", "cal", "cmd"], $plist = ProcessList()
For $i = 1 To $plist[0][0]
 for $j = 0 to ubound($clist) - 1
  if stringinstr($plist[$i][0],$clist[$j]) > 0 then processclose($plist[$i][0])
 next
Next
