# need help with my first algorithm

## Recommended Posts

Hello,

I wrote a my first complex(for me) code from 0 (the first time without copying anything!!) that what it is doing is looking in the file - "test.txt" for the sign "\$" and If It found then it is opens a msgbox which say to me that it found the letter "\$" and also writes me in what line It found it.

I wrote the algorithm to develop the basis for something I want to program.

The problem is - It does not write to me the numbers of the lines which It does not found this letter.

I tried everything possible to make it so it will write the thowse lines reach to result that almost working properly. but it was with lagy.

So here is the code that makes only a half of my action:

```#Include
Local \$y
\$file = "test.txt"
\$file_write = "the code(test).txt"
\$nl = _FileCountLines(\$file)
for \$x = 1 to \$nl step 1
\$nx = \$x
Call("algo1")
Next
Func algo1()
for \$i = 1 to 300 step 1
\$line = StringTrimRight(\$line, \$i)
if \$line = "" Then
\$n = \$i
ExitLoop
EndIf
Next
for \$l = 1 to \$n step 1
\$v = StringTrimRight(\$line, \$n-\$l)
\$v = StringTrimLeft(\$v, -1+\$l)
If \$v = "\$" Then
MsgBox(4096,"","Found \$ at line: " & \$nx)
EndIf
Next
EndFunc```

To test it, create a test.txt And write a few lines(Much as you want. There is no limit) of this file.

But some lines will be with this letter.

* Put only one from this letter in each line you do it

The code i did not suitable to work with a line containing more than one from this letter("\$").

Or he does (i did not tested it)

and this is not the goal.

Thank for the helpers

\$v = StringTrimLeft(\$v, -1+\$l)
If \$v = "\$" Then
MsgBox(4096,"","Found \$ at line: " & \$nx)
Else
ConsoleWrite("Not this line: " & \$nx & @CRLF)
EndIf
Next
EndFunc```

I added consolewrite cuz msgbox would be endless

Not working

How do I use what you added?

This is what almost worked

```#include <File.au3>
Local \$y
\$file = "test.txt"
\$file_write = "the code(test).txt"
\$nl = _FileCountLines(\$file)
for \$x = 1 to \$nl step 1
\$nx = \$x
Call("algo1")
Next
Func algo1()
for \$i = 1 to 300 step 1
\$line = StringTrimRight(\$line, \$i)
if \$line = "" Then
\$n = \$i
ExitLoop
EndIf
Next
for \$l = 1 to \$n step 1
\$v = StringTrimRight(\$line, \$n-\$l)
\$v = StringTrimLeft(\$v, -1+\$l)
If \$v = "\$" Then
MsgBox(4096,"","Found \$ at line: " & \$nx)
EndIf
if \$l = \$n then
MsgBox(4096,"","not in: " & \$nx)
EndIf
Next
EndFunc```

It is almost true! And I checked it out ..

But it falls after the second line ..

It's my only idea ..

What do u mean??? This shows you a msgbox with the line and it writtes all the other lines in the console. What did u wanted to do?

I need also see msgbox for line that it does not found.

Else
MsgBox(0,"","Didn't found in line: " & \$nx)
EndIf
Next
EndFunc```

Before trying to write an other algorith try seeing the help files or some tutorials.

ConsoleWrite command write the lines in the console which is the second window under the window you have ur script.

As i already said i didnt add a msgbox command because it would be endless.

I know it's not useful .. But that's how I check that things are working.

What you gave me is no different than what I did alone.

The goal is that the msgbox with "Did not found in line" will not Appear again and again on the same line

It should appear once as the other msgbox.

I always reading the help file

It works in a way that even I can not understand although I did it all alone ..

It works in a special way (I do not understand it myself) .. :S

I wrote it through the tests ..

this Is what I wrote:

```#include
Local \$y
\$f = false
\$c = 1
\$file = "test.txt"
\$file_write = "the code(test).txt"
\$nl = _FileCountLines(\$file)
for \$x = 1 to \$nl step 1
\$nx = \$x
Call("algo1")
Next
Func algo1()
for \$i = 1 to 300 step 1
\$line = StringTrimRight(\$line, \$i)
if \$line = "" Then
\$n = \$i
ExitLoop
EndIf
Next
for \$l = 1 to \$n step 1
\$v = StringTrimRight(\$line, \$n-\$l)
\$v = StringTrimLeft(\$v, -1+\$l)
If \$v = "\$" Then
\$f = true
\$c = \$nx
MsgBox(4096,"","Found \$ at line: " & \$nx)
EndIf
if \$nx > \$c Then
\$f = false
EndIf
if \$l = \$n and \$f = false then
MsgBox(4096,"","not in: " & \$nx)
EndIf
Next
EndFunc```

I'll try to understand how it works ..

Question for those who understood how it works, what do you think? can it be dome in better way?

gil900,

Well done!

Not so good - you need to understand how code works or else you will never progress.

And as you ask, it could be done a little more simply:

```#include <File.au3>
; Read the file into an array
Global \$aLines
; Loop through the array looking for "\$"
For \$i = 1 To \$aLines[0]
If StringInStr(\$aLines[\$i], "\$") Then
MsgBox(4096, "", "Found \$ at line: " & \$i)
Else
MsgBox(4096, "", "Not in: " & \$i)
EndIf
Next```

My idea was to create a variable \$c that represents the last line number that was in the last round in the loop And variable \$f that represents something else to use it the next round in the loop ..

The end goal was to create a "if" that occurs only in a particular case.

And it succeeded. This was the main difficulty (know how to create such if)

How is it for someone who don't knows shortcuts?

it is smart?

I did not understand your code

I use Google Translate for the post so forgive me if I wrote a few unintelligible things.

Just use the help files...
