Combining multiple arrays...round 2

Recommended Posts

Cravin

Good evening - so here's my predicament:  I'm attempting to create a network backup script.  I'm using Melba23's great UDF, RecFileListToArray.au3, and plan to actually perform the copy process with Yashied's Copy UDF.  I'm running into some trouble at this point... I'm able to get this script as it is to create multiple arrays depending on what options are selected, but the trouble seems to come with the function I created called "_ConcatenateFileArrays" - What I want this to do, is take each array generated by _RecFileListToArray and add it to one big array so that I can call _Copy_CopyFile on each item..

This is very rough code so bear with me.  Any thoughts and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  

Thanks for all the help!

NOTE: For testing purposes, run the script, and in the username field, type in your username, and in the UNC path field, type in the name of your computer in this form, pointing to the admin share:  yourpcnamec$, then choose "Selective Copy" and check "C: Variances" and "User Desktop" and then "Begin Transfer".  This should give you the general idea of what I'm wanting to do.

EDIT: Added the copy of Melba23's RecFileListToArray.au3 for ease

; ===============================================================================================================================

; #FUNCTION# ====================================================================================================================
; Name...........: _RecFileListToArray
; Description ...: Lists files and\or folders in a specified path with optional recursion to defined level and result sorting
; Syntax.........: _RecFileListToArray($sPath[, $sMask = "*"[, $iReturn = 0[, $iRecur = 0[, $iSort = 0[, $iReturnPath = 1[, $sExclude_List = ""[, $sExclude_List_Folder]]]]]]])
; Parameters ....: $sPath - Initial path used to generate filelist
;                               If path ends in \ then folders will be returned with an ending \
;                               If path lengths > 260 chars, prefix path with "\\?\" - return paths are not affected
;                  $sMask - Optional: Filter for result. Multiple filters must be separated by ";"
;                           Use "|" to separate 3 possible sets of filters: "Include|Exclude|Exclude_Folders"
;                               Include = Files/Folders to include (default = "*" [all])
;                               Exclude = Files/Folders to exclude (default = "" [none])
;                               Exclude_Folders = only used if basic $iReturn = 0 AND $iRecur = 1 to exclude defined folders (default = "" [none])
;                  $iReturn - Optional: specifies whether to return files, folders or both and omits those with certain attributes
;                              0 - Return both files and folders (Default)
;                                   If non-recursive Include/Exclude_List applies to files and folders
;                                   If recursive Include/Exclude_List applies to files only, all folders are searched unless excluded using $sExclude_List_Folder
;                              1 - Return files only    - Include/Exclude_List applies to files only, all folders searched if recursive
;                              2 - Return folders only  - Include/Exclude_List applies to folders only for searching and return
;                                   Add one or more of the following to $iReturn to omit files/folders with that attribute
;                                   + 4  - Hidden files and folders
;                                   + 8  - System files and folders
;                                   + 16 - Link/junction folders
;                                   Note:  Omitting files/folders uses a different search algorithm and takes approx 50% longer
;                  $iRecur - Optional: specifies whether to search recursively in subfolders and to what level
;                             1 - Search in all subfolders (unlimited recursion)
;                             0 - Do not search in subfolders (Default)
;                             Negative integer - Search in subfolders to specified depth
;                  $iSort - Optional: sort ordered in alphabetical and depth order
;                             0 - Not sorted (Default)
;                             1 - Sorted
;                             2 - Sorted with faster algorithm (assumes files sorted within each folder - requires NTFS drive)
;                  $iReturnPath - Optional: specifies displayed path of results
;                             0 - File/folder name only
;                             1 - Relative to initial path (Default)
;                             2 - Full path included
;
; [These parameters are now deprecated as they should be included within the $sMask parameter]
; [If $sMask contains sections for Exclude and Exclude_Folders (i.e "|" characters are used) then these parameters will be ignored]
;                  $sExclude_List - Optional: filter for excluded results (default ""). Multiple filters must be separated by ";"
;                  $sExclude_List_Folder - Optional: only used if $iReturn = 0 AND $iRecur = 1 to exclude folders matching the filter
;
; Requirement(s).: v3.3.1.1 or higher
; Return values .: Success: One-dimensional array made up as follows:
;                            [0] = Number of Files\Folders returned
;                            [1] = 1st File\Folder
;                            [2] = 2nd File\Folder
;                            ...
;                            [n] = nth File\Folder
;                   Failure: Null string and @error = 1 with @extended set as follows:
;                            1 = Path not found or invalid
;                            2 = Invalid $sInclude_List

What you're doing in the _ConcatentateArray function will never work. All you're sending to _ArrayConcatenate is the variable name of your arrays, not the arrays themselves. Why are you using a function just to call a function? It would be far easier to just send _arrayconcatenate the arrays you want to merge rather than going to the extremes of trying to loop through an array that isn't doing what you want it to. This way, you don't need to make the arrays Global, you can send them from inside the function and keep them local. Saves on memory and time.

I see what you mean, but in that respect, how would I do this in such a way that it only attempts to concatenate the file list arrays that are checked in the "Selective copy" section?

The same way you're doing it now, just without the extraneous function that doesn't work.

You'd have to run the same check you do in the function to delete the duplicates, even though there shouldn't be any if they're in different folders. But, you'd only have to run _ArrayUnique once on the end result instead of up to 10 times to do the same thing.

So going back through the code, I guess I'm a little unsure as to where I need to place the final _ArrayUnique portion at so that it runs after all the selected "Cases" have been executed.  What's the most logical place?

EDIT: I figured this out, but wow, using _ArrayUnique on an array with 50k+ elements is just not going to cut it performance wise....I've left this script running for literally 30 minutes so far and it's not finished yet... Is there absolutely any other way to eliminate duplicates from an array that is like, 100x faster?  Eesh.

Meh! Yes you can speed this up but you will have to approach things differently. The best way is to avoid adding any duplicates in the first place. The problem here is the amount of data being processed. You need to process it in smaller chunks. I don't know exactly the best chunk size for optimal performance. By using _ArrayConcatenate you can't exclude duplicates. M23's UDF does not appear to have such an option niether, although it does have an exclude option (I doubt it will solve the speed problem, though you could try it).

Writing a special unique recursive file list function is the more complicated option and represents a challenge, plus it would require lots of testing for optimization. Anyway, here's an idea you might be able to use. It tests array entries against a string filter (which is faster than testing two arrays against each other) and finally concatenates all unique entries. This method would replace _ArrayConcatenate in your code, but first needs turning into a proper function.

;

#include <Array.au3>

Local $sStringFormat = "|" ; Start with a delimited string for checking duplicates

$sStringFormat &= "data_1|data_2|data_3|" ; Snapshot from previous searches ==> "|data_1|data_2|data_3|"
Local $aMainArray[4] = [3, "data_1", "data_2", "data_3"] ; This array is always unique
Local $iBound = 4 ; The size of the array so far

; Get data from the next search
Local $aArrayFormat[8] = [7, "data1", "data_2", "data_3", "data123", "data_3", "data_4", "data_5"] ; New Search

$iBound += $aArrayFormat[0] ; The main array needs to be at least this size to accomodate all the new items
ReDim $aMainArray[$iBound] ; Resize the main array

Local $iAdded = 0 ; Nothing added yet
For $i = 1 To $aArrayFormat[0] ; Loop through the new items
    ; Check to see if anything found so far already exists ==> Searching strings is faster
    If StringInStr($sStringFormat, "|" & $aArrayFormat[$i] & "|") Then ContinueLoop ; Do not add duplicates to the main array

    $iAdded += 1 ; Count the number of items added
    $aMainArray[$aMainArray[0] + $iAdded] = $aArrayFormat[$i] ; Add each unique new item
    $sStringFormat &= $aArrayFormat[$i] & "|" ; Add each unique new item to the delimited string for checking duplicates
Next

$iBound = $aMainArray[0] + $iAdded +1 ; The new size of the array
ReDim $aMainArray[$iBound]
$aMainArray[0] = $iBound -1 ; Update the new item count

$aArrayFormat = 0 ; Free up memory before you continue

_ArrayDisplay($aMainArray)

Czardas,

Interesting thoughts, I'll play around with the concept and get back with you on some feedback.  Thanks for the idea!

If you have any problems, post a small reproducer which demonstrates the issues you encounter. The processing is still going to take time however you approach it. You can use the functions TimerInit() and TimerDiff() to test speed on smaller samples, so you don't have to wait so long on every test. You must free memory as you go and I also suggest you pass large arrays to functions using ByRef (unless they are global) to avoid duplicating all the data in memory. The code I posted was intended to illustrate one method which hopefully inspires you. Perhaps someone else can improve on it. Good luck! :)

I have had a bit of time to look into this. The following function still needs rigorous testing. There are parameters which allow you to optimize the function for performance. This will require a second post. In testing so far I discovered that with two arrays of 8267 elements it is approximately 27 times faster than using the Array UDF functions to do the same task. The difference may be greater with larger arrays. I tried testing two arrays of 100000 elements and _ArrayUniqueConcatenate() took 1 minute and 38 seconds. I gave up waiting for the second test after 45 minutes.

$avTarget - The array to concatenate
$avSource - The array to concatenate from
$iTargetBase - Is the Array 0-base or 1-base index? 0-base by default
$iSourceBase - Is the Array 0-base or 1-base index? 0-base by default
$iUniqueTarget - Is the target Array already unique? 0 by default
$iCaseSense - Case Sensitivity. 0 by default
$sDelimiter - Choose a different delimiter. '|' by default
$iDelimCheck - Set to 0 ONLY if you are certain the delimiter does not exist in any Array element

;

Doubling the size of the arrays in the above test gave a further increase in performance: from 27 to 45 times faster. Here's an example showing how best to use the function to optimise for speed.

;

#include <Array.au3>

Local $aArray_1[5] = [4, "data_1", "data_2", "data_2", "data_3"]
Local $aArray_2[8] = [7, "data1", "data_2", "data_3", "data123", "data_3", "data_4", "data_5"]
Local $aArray_3[8] = [7, "data_3", "data123", "data_3", "data_6", "data_1", "data_7", "data_8"]

Czardas,

Thank you greatly for your insightfulness.  I'll run some of my arrays through it and see what kind of difference it makes, looking much more hopeful!

Cravin,

Another alternative.  Comments and run times are in the code...

kylomas - very interesting: those are pretty impressive results. I was thinking that my method could be modified to accomodate multiple arrays and only do one StringSplit at the end. This would improve speed, but it still wouldn't match the speed of your function because StringSplit can be slow on large strings.

@czardas - Do you have some large dir's you can pump through this?  Use any name for the array from $a00-$a50.

I just tested it on some large arrays and it's amazing. :)

I spent most of yesterday on my example. Oh well!

Thanks...between your technique and this Cravin should have enough to solve his problem.

If I'm not mistaken, it appears only to work with file names. I don't think it's an issue for Cravin, but looking at the regexp, will it not fail with the following unlikely entries?

folderfile
folder.file

folder_file

Because this line:

$tname = stringregexpreplace($array[$1],'[\.\:\\ ]','_')

;

Will produce folder_file in both all cases. Not being picky or anything. The method is pretty cool anyway. o:)

Also what happens if one of the resulting names matches an existing variable declared in another part of the code?

There should be a solution for this.

Yes, it was designed for filenames.  The replacement is done because ".:" are invalid in variable names.  I'm sure that there is some DSN pattern that will produce an invalid duplicate but I can't see it right now (1:30AM).  This was more proof of concept than anything else.  Too be useful to Cravin it needs to be turned into a clean procedure (like the code you presented).  Cravin would know best how to fit it to his app.

Good Night,

kylomas

That's not picky, it's observant....thanks
