Passing values from 2d array into another function

Recommended Posts


For some reason what seems like a simple function has gone over my head as to why this doesn't work, so there must be some simple concept here I'm completely missing.

I have a 2d array full of values from a csv file and I know that row 1,2 has nothing important, but column 3 has all the classes from the CSV

So $twoDarray[3][*one through six] =
1. Name
2. Location
3. host
So I should be able to pass all rows of column 3 by strconvert($twoDarray[3]).
I've searched the forums but I could not find the solution to this probably simple problem.

Dim $oneDarray
$oneDarray=StringSplit($Rawfile, @CRLF, 1)
$columnsCounter = stringsplit($oneDarray[2],",")
Dim $twoDarray[$oneDarray[0] + 1][$columnsCounter[0] + 1]
For $x = 1 to ($oneDarray[0])
$oneRow = stringsplit($oneDarray[$x],",")
For $y = 1 to ($oneRow[0])
$twoDarray[$x][$y] = $oneRow[$y]


Log Output
Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded.:
strconvert($classes,^ ERROR

First, what is "strconvert"?

Second, you cannot pass a part of an array to a function, unless it's its full location ($twoDarray[y][x])

You can however pass the whole array to a function, where you can loop through the needed parts and process them.

strconvert is just my next function where I begin to step through the strings and parse the values I'm looking for, but is irrelevant to this topic just because the topic is really dealing with 'like you confirmed' passing part of an array into a function.  So thank you for clearing that up.

This question is resolved for me, thanks.

I see.

Additionally, when passing an array to a function the size of which you indicate, it is advisable to pass it by reference (ByRef).

That way the array is not copied, saving time and memory.

Would you mind posting a short example?

Why don't you just pass element 3 from $onedarray?

      Hi, i'm currently facing problems with understanding how arrays work, or atleast a few commands that alter arrays.
      My current situation is:
      1. I'm taking the process list and putting it all in an array
      2. I want to remove the boring common windows processes
      3. Profit
      And i'm currently stuck on step 2, while i already found this thread it dosn't seem that i can make it do what i want.
      Current code:
      Local $PList = ProcessList() Local $RL[6] = ["smss.exe", "csrss.exe", "svchost.exe", "iexplore.exe", "chrome.exe", "conhost.exe"] Sleep(1) For $i=1 To Ubound($RL)-1 Sleep(1) While Not @Error $iIndex = _ArraySearch($PList, $RL[$i], 1, 0, 0, 1) _ArrayDelete($PList, $iIndex) WEnd Next It seems to remove all but smss.exe from the array list unless i have it two times in the array.
      Note: The sleep(1) is there to clear the error else the command wont fire for the rest of the array, any other way of doing it?

      To save myself a "search" nightmare, I'm trying to wrap my head around 3D arrays.
      Example: In "No Limit Hold'em", if I only play kings "KK" and queens "QQ"
      and I only play them from the positions of the "Button" or "Blinds"
      and do one thing if it's raised ahead or another if not raised.
      I know that this example would be simple as a 2D array but if I'm dealing with 77 possible hands in 9 possible positions and 6 possible conditions then I'm dealing with almost 700 data lines.
      Lastly, if I have a variables to represent the hand like $hand = "QQ"
      and $position = "Button" and $ahead = "Raised", could the 3D array simplify my search, or should I just stick to the 2D array ??
      Thank you in advance for any thoughts...

      So I have a loop that keeps reading data from an array and searching it for the same value. If the value is no there it does work then adds the value to the array to prevent it from doing the same work.
      If _ArraySearch($ID,$filearray[$i]) = -1 Then Work.... _ArrayAdd($ID,$filearray[$i]) EndIf This is in a for loop hence $i
      So what is happening is the code works great for several hours. After a period of time _ArraySearch($ID,$filearray[$i]) will result in -1 even if $ID = $filearray. So it ready as if there is no data in the array. Anyone have this problem? 
      Also I am just running in using F5 not compiling it and running it if that makes a difference.
