Function that takes array and finds unique indexes

Recommended Posts

nitekram

Cannot get my head around this...I have an array of X, and in that array each index has 3 parts, I need to find the unique indexes of the main array

 

so main array would be

[0] ???|abc|down

[1] ???|abc|downorflapping

[2] ???|ccc|ccc

[3] ???|ddd|ddd

[4] ???|xyz|down

[5] ???|xyz|unresponsive

 

so that is the array that comes in, and I think I need to break that up in another array and then compare it to each other, but I am not able to get my head around it...the first element does not matter, but if the second element is found anywhere else in the main array, I need to take only one of them, I would like that to be a variable passed, that way I can call it more then once and get the unique values I am looking for...Anyone got an idea?

 

I have tried many different ways but cannot seem to get it right

$aListAlerts[6] = ["???|abc|down", "???|abc|downorflapping", "???|ccc|ccc", "???|ddd|ddd", "???|xyz|down", "???|xyz|unresponsive"]
 
 
 
 
_ArrayDisplay($aListAlerts, 'all alerts')

    Local $aNewArray[2]

    For $x = 0 To UBound($aListAlerts) - 1
        Local $aTestArray = StringSplit($aListAlerts[$x], '|', 2)
        If UBound($aTestArray) <= 1 Then ContinueLoop
        ConsoleWrite($x & '  X  ' & $aListAlerts[$x] & @CRLF)
        For $y = 0 To UBound($aListAlerts) - 1
            If $y = $x Then ContinueLoop
            If StringInStr($aListAlerts[$y], $aTestArray[1]) Then
                Local $aTestArray2 = StringSplit($aListAlerts[$y], '|', 2)
                ConsoleWrite($y & '  Y  ' & $aListAlerts[$y] & @CRLF)
                If UBound($aTestArray2) <= 1 Then ContinueLoop
                If $aTestArray2[2] <> $aTestArray[2] Then

                    If $aTestArray2[2] = 'Down' Then
                        If $aTestArray[2] = 'DownOrFlapping' Then
                            If _ArraySearch($aNewArray, $aListAlerts[$x]) <> @error Then
                            _ArrayAdd($aNewArray, $aListAlerts[$x])
                            ExitLoop
                            EndIf
                        EndIf
                    ElseIf $aTestArray2[2] = 'DownOrFlapping' Then
                        If $aTestArray[2] = 'Down' Then
                            If _ArraySearch($aNewArray, $aListAlerts[$x]) <> @error Then
                            _ArrayAdd($aNewArray, $aListAlerts[$x])

                        ExitLoop

I do not think that will work, unless I read it wrong. I want to find the element with the letters that match and then find out if there is a matching one and only return one. As each of the elements in the main array are unique - it would just return my main array?

nitekran,

Try something like this (just displays hit results)

#include <array.au3>

local $aMain[6] = [ '???|abc|down', _
                    '???|abc|downorflapping', _
                    '???|ccc|ccc', _
                    '???|ddd|ddd', _
                    '???|xyz|down', _
                    '???|xyz|unresponsive' ]

; create and populate interim 2D array

local $aTmp[6][2]

for $1 = 0 to ubound($aMain) - 1

    $a10 = stringsplit($aMain[$1],'|')
    $aTmp[$1][0] = $a10[2]
    $aTmp[$1][1] = $a10[3]

Next

; compare each element to every other element - produce hit coordinates of elements

for $1 = 0 to ubound($aTmp,1) - 1
    for $2 = 0 to ubound($aTmp,2) - 1
        for $3 = 0 to ubound($aTmp,1) - 1
            for $4 = 0 to ubound($aTmp,2) - 1
                if $aTmp[$1][$2] = $aTmp[$3][$4] then
                    ConsoleWrite(stringformat('ele [%02i][%02i] = %-15s  matches ele [%02i][%02i] = %-15s',$1,$2,$aTmp[$1][$2],$3,$4,$aTmp[$3][$4]) & @LF)
                EndIf
            Next
        Next

Or using an extended array search UDF (doh! just worked on this and forgot about it!)

#include <array.au3>

local $aMain[6] = [ '???|abc|down', _
                    '???|abc|downorflapping', _
                    '???|ccc|ccc', _
                    '???|ddd|ddd', _
                    '???|xyz|down', _
                    '???|xyz|unresponsive' ]

; create and populate interim 2D array

local $aTmp[6][2]

for $1 = 0 to ubound($aMain) - 1

    $a10 = stringsplit($aMain[$1],'|')
    $aTmp[$1][0] = $a10[2]
    $aTmp[$1][1] = $a10[3]

Next

; compare each element to every other element - produce hit coordinates of elements

for $1 = 0 to ubound($aTmp,1) - 1
    for $2 = 0 to ubound($aTmp,2) - 1
        $a10 = _arrayfindallex($aTmp,$aTmp[$1][$2])
        ConsoleWrite($aTmp[$1][$2] & ' Found at ' & @lf)
        for $i = 0 to ubound($a10) - 1
            ConsoleWrite(@tab & $a10[$i][0] & @lf)
        Next
    next
Next

Thanks for your help @kylomas. I will look at your examples and see if I can get my head around them.

I came up with this: wondering if I can make it better?

Assuming that 'downorflapping' and 'unresponsive' come after 'down' if sorted, maybe this can do the work, sort of

#include <array.au3>
;#include <File.au3>

Local $aMain[6] = ['???|abc|downorflapping', _
        '???|abc|down', _
        '???|ccc|ccc', _
        '???|ddd|ddd', _
        '???|xyz|down', _
        '???|xyz|unresponsive']

;_ArrayDisplay($aMain)

_ArraySort($aMain)
;_ArrayDisplay($aMain)

For $i = Ubound($aMain)-1 to 1 step -1
  $current = StringRegExpReplace($aMain[$i], '.+?\|(.*?)\|.+', "$1")
  $prev = StringRegExpReplace($aMain[$i-1], '.+?\|(.*?)\|.+', "$1")
  If $current = $prev Then _ArrayDelete($aMain, $i)
Next
_ArrayDisplay($aMain)

That works as long as I change my array to have the second element first and the first element last - not a big deal to change. I did not think the first element would be a problem (stupid me for thinking that), so I chose not to post, but here would be an example:

Local $aMain[6] = ['host|abc|downorflapping', _
        'port|xyz|unresponsive', _
        'host|abc|down', _
        'router|ccc|ccc', _
        'switch|ddd|ddd', _
        'TrunkCable|xyz|down']
I do have a question though, as I understand most of the code. But I am lost when I see REGEXP, the things you guys put in there make me feel like I am reading Greek. I always get lost in those. Can you dumb it down for the none Greek readers?

So something like this then ?

#include <array.au3>

Local $aMain[6] = ['host|abc|downorflapping', _ 
        'port|xyz|unresponsive', _ 
        'host|abc|down', _ 
        'router|ccc|ccc', _ 
        'switch|ddd|ddd', _ 
        'TrunkCable|xyz|down']

; create and populate interim 2D array
Local $aAlertInfo[6][3]
For $1 = 0 To UBound($aMain) - 1
    $a10 = StringSplit($aMain[$1], '|')

    $aAlertInfo[$1][0] = $a10[2] ; alert
    $aAlertInfo[$1][1] = $a10[3] ; event
    $aAlertInfo[$1][2] = $a10[1] ; class
Next

_ArrayDisplay($aAlertInfo, 'all')
_ArraySort($aAlertInfo) 
_ArrayDisplay($aAlertInfo, 'sorted')

For $i = Ubound($aMain)-1 to 1 step -1
  $current = $aAlertInfo[$i][0] & $aAlertInfo[$i][2] 
  $prev = $aAlertInfo[$i-1][0] & $aAlertInfo[$i-1][2]
  If $current = $prev Then _ArrayDelete($aAlertInfo, $i)
Next
_ArrayDisplay($aAlertInfo)

The list should contain only 4 items, I am trying to remove the duplicates. I just came up with another condition - if only one is in the list it needs to be in the final array.

This is what I am looking for:

 host|abc|down
 router|ccc|ccc
 switch|ddd|ddd
 TrunkCable|xyz|down

But if the list were this:

 ['host|abc|downorflapping', _
        'port|xyz|unresponsive', _
        'router|ccc|ccc', _
        'switch|ddd|ddd', _
        'TrunkCable|xyz|down']

I would want my output to be: Notice how there is not a duplicate (index 2) for abc, so I would still want to pick that one up in my list as well. Meaning, sometimes the alert comes in just with 'downorflapping' and not another one for 'down'. I am still working on this, if anyone has an idea on how to proceed - that would be great.

host|abc|downorflapping
router|ccc|ccc
switch|ddd|ddd _
TrunkCable|xyz|down

Is mikell's version not working for you?

I got the same idea:

#include <Array.au3>
Global $aInput[6] = ['host|abc|downorflapping', _
                    'port|xyz|unresponsive', _
                    'host|abc|down', _
                    'router|ccc|ccc', _
                    'switch|ddd|ddd', _
                    'TrunkCable|xyz|down']
$aResult = MakeUnique($aInput)
_ArrayDisplay($aResult)

Func MakeUnique($aInput)
    Local $aWork[UBound($aInput)][3], $i, $x, $aTmp
    For $i = 0 To UBound($aInput) - 1 ;convert it to a 2d array
        $aTmp = StringSplit($aInput[$i], "|", 2)
        For $x = 0 To 2
            $aWork[$i][$x] = $aTmp[$x]
        Next
    Next
    _ArraySort($aWork, 0, 0, 0, 1) ;sort array at subitem 1 (hostnames)
    Local $iUB = UBound($aWork) - 1
    For $i = $iUB To 1 Step - 1 ;delete duplicates
        If $aWork[$i][1] = $aWork[$i - 1][1] Then
            _ArrayDelete($aWork, $i)
        EndIf
    Next
    Return $aWork
EndFunc 

Or a different approach:

#include <Array.au3>
Global $aInput[6] = ['host|abc|downorflapping', _
                    'port|xyz|unresponsive', _
                    'host|abc|down', _
                    'router|ccc|ccc', _
                    'switch|ddd|ddd', _
                    'TrunkCable|xyz|down']
                    
$aResult = MakeUnique($aInput)
_ArrayDisplay($aResult)

Func MakeUnique($aInput)
    Local $sInput = _ArrayToString($aInput, @CRLF)
    Local $aUnique = $aInput, $aTmp, $i, $j, $y
    For $i = 0 To UBound($aInput) - 1
        $aTmp = StringRegExp($sInput, "(.*\|" & StringRegExpReplace($aInput[$i], ".*\|(.*)\|.*", "$1") & "\|.*)", 3)
        If (UBound($aTmp) - 1) > 0 Then
            For $j = 1 To UBound($aTmp) - 1
                For $y = UBound($aUnique) - 1 To 0 Step - 1
                    If $aUnique[$y] = StringReplace(StringStripCR($aTmp[$j]), @LF, "") Then _ArrayDelete($aUnique, $y)
                Next
            Next
        EndIf
    Next
    Return $aUnique
EndFunc

The version you posted (mike's) seems to work - this does not - posted. Have not had time to look at code...will have time tomorrow, the one you posted, gives me the opposite of what I am looking for, and since I have no idea about REGEX function, it would take me some time to change/fix

#include <array.au3>

Local $aMain[6] = ['host|abc|downorflapping', _
        'port|xyz|unresponsive', _
        'host|abc|down', _
        'router|ccc|ccc', _
        'switch|ddd|ddd', _
        'TrunkCable|xyz|down']

; create and populate interim 2D array
Local $aAlertInfo[6][3]
For $1 = 0 To UBound($aMain) - 1
    $a10 = StringSplit($aMain[$1], '|')

    $aAlertInfo[$1][0] = $a10[2] ; alert
    $aAlertInfo[$1][1] = $a10[3] ; event
    $aAlertInfo[$1][2] = $a10[1] ; class
Next

_ArrayDisplay($aAlertInfo, 'all')
_ArraySort($aAlertInfo)
_ArrayDisplay($aAlertInfo, 'sorted')

For $i = Ubound($aMain)-1 to 1 step -1
  $current = $aAlertInfo[$i][0] & $aAlertInfo[$i][2]
  $prev = $aAlertInfo[$i-1][0] & $aAlertInfo[$i-1][2]
  If $current = $prev Then _ArrayDelete($aAlertInfo, $i)
Next
_ArrayDisplay($aAlertInfo)

Thanks for everyones help

EDIT - I should have said, yours that you posted with the same idea, worked, and appears to be the best...I am looking on how to make sure that the more sever of the two alerts hits, as Down, is a lot more sever then downorflapping, but again will have to work on it tomorrow, thanks again

      hi,
      i have checkboxes and each checkbox that checked, i put in array. 
      now, im stuck on how to loop the checked array and store in in one variable. what i can do now, is only write the result into a text file. 
      below is the code:
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> ;~ #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> Global $Count = 3 Global $CheckBoxP[$Count] Global $step[$Count] global $array1[1] Global $ExitResult $hGUI = GUICreate("Summary Steps", 500, 400) GUISetFont(12, 400, "Tahoma") GUICtrlCreateLabel( "Please Select the Summary Steps for Script Check", 70, 20) GUISetFont(10, 400, "Tahoma") Global $array_Pstep[3] = ["fix2","fix1","fix3"] global $step[3] = ["2","3","4"] $Spacing = 50 For $i = 0 To UBound($array_Pstep) - 1 $CheckBoxP[$i] = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox($array_Pstep[$i], 80, $Spacing + (20 * $i), 65, 17) Next $submit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Submit",180, 280, 80, 30) $exit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit",180, 320, 80, 30) GUISetState() While 1 $Msg = GUIGetMsg() Select case $Msg=$submit For $i = 0 To $Count - 1 If GUICtrlRead($CheckBoxP[$i]) = $GUI_CHECKED Then _ArrayAdd($array1, $step[$i]) EndIf Next Global $logfilerray = @WorkingDir & "\checkedlist.txt" FileDelete ($logfilerray) Global $readlogfile = FileOpen($logfilerray,1) for $a = 1 to UBound($array1) - 1 ;~ $var=$array1[$a] FileWriteLine($readlogfile,$array1[$a]) Next FileClose($readlogfile) Exit case $Msg=$exit $ExitResult = MsgBox(1,"Summary Step", "Continue to Exit ?") if $ExitResult = 1 Then ;ok Exit EndIf Exit EndSelect WEnd

      How do you perform a nested loop function with a multidimensional array from 2 lists.
      for i in list1
      (open file) extract variable
          while open for i in list 2
          (open file2) extract variable
       
      var1 + var2 = (search term)

      The list sizes will more than likely consist of different lengths.
       
      What is the best approach to accomplishing this method?

      Hello!

      I am working on a function that I am just getting lost on. The goal is a multiple nested loop.

      Here are the steps:
      Contents of file1.txt::
      [topic] var1=Name var2=OtherName var3=SomeotheName Contents of file2.txt::
      [subTopic] top=sub1 top2=sub2 top3=sub3 The Shell I am working from::
      #include <file.au3> $file = "c:\yourfile.txt" FileOpen($file, 0) For $i = 1 to _FileCountLines($file) $line = FileReadLine($file, $i) msgbox(0,'','the line ' & $i & ' is ' & $line) Next FileClose($file) Understanding however that the "msgbox" needs to then become a variable. in example the following::
      $file = "c:\yourfile.txt" FileOpen($file, 0) While true( prog.exe is running && "WinName" is open) do For $i = 1 to _FileCountLines($file) $line = FileReadLine($file, $i) ;Open File to log "current location of file 1" FileWriteLine ("filename", $i & ' is ' & $line) var = $line Next $file2 = "c:\yourfile.txt" FileOpen($file, 0) For $i = 1 to _FileCountLines($file) $line = FileReadLine($file, $i) ; OpenFile to log "Current location of file 2" FileWriteLine ("filename", $i & ' is ' & $line) Next FileClose($file2) FileClose($file) The goal in written form is the following ::

      While in "OpenWindow"
          read from file 1 starting at line 1 until end of file.
         file 1 is a list of names to be searched.
         With $line selected, add this element to the element in file 2.
       
      The search of a variables in list 1 and list 2 differ on the amount of posts that day. (This is not a web based platform, it is a game) I need to search 2 names and take a screenshot of the out put. The sizes of the names list depend on the activity of names at the time of search.
      This loop continues until all the names from both lists have been searched. Mostly in the format of::
      File1= item
      File2= Vendor
       
      Item + Vendor  ( Capture screen, scroll) -- Not sure how to detect if I need to scroll)
       
      Thank you for your help and support!

      Hi Virtual People,
      My array works perfectly fine. However, what is the best practice if the line in the array doesn't have the correct amount of columns and if I can add a placeholder?

       
      For $count = 1 To _FileCountLines($FileRead1) Step 1 $string = FileReadLine($FileRead1, $count) $input = StringSplit($string, ",", 1) $value1 = $input[1] $value2 = $input[2] $value3 = $input[3] _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value2, "A1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value1, "B1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value3, "C1") Next

      hi all,
      reviewing the forum, this thread is applicable: 
       
       
      I wanted to know if there is now a better way to do this?
      In essence, I load a tab delimited txt file into an array (works well). I used tab, as some fields in the original csv contains commas.
      However, I needed autoit to manipulate this array, and output it as a csv.
      IF my array contains items with a comma, without double quotes around the field, then how best do I get a csv out of this?
      My current workaround is to filewritefromarray tab delimited, then open it in excel and save as a csv. I will need to check this to see how the address fields behave that contain a comma.
       
      Any thoughts would be appreciated.
