# multiply numbers on a list by 2, 3, 4 etc

## Recommended Posts

how can i multiply numbers in a text file 92 by 92 and each time by a different amount

eg:

1

2

3

...

92

multiplied by 2

93

94

95

...

184

multipiled by 3 on the same list

so every time every 92 numbers a different factor multiplies the numbers until line 26000

Using nested For/Next loops?

Not clear by what you mean by "multiply numbers in a text file 92 by 92".

Can you post what code you have so far?  It would make helping you a lot easier.

i have a list for 92 numbers that repeat

here's an example with 4 numbers that repeat twice (same order)

22

45

2

91

22

45

2

91

i need to multiply the 4 numbers and everytime they repeat the multiplier goes +1

heres a eg: result, first repeat multiplied by 2 and then by 3 (2+1) and so on

44

90

4

182

66

135

6

273

so basically its the same numbers (22, 45, 2, 91) that repeat but multiply by 2, 3,4 ,5, ...

A little bit clearer.

Read up on FileReadLine, While/Wend, and For/Next in the help file.  If you get stuck, post the code that you were able to put together, and we can try to get you past your hurdles.

```#include <File.au3>
\$file = @DesktopDir & "\temp.txt"
Local \$array[1]
_FileReadToArray(\$file,\$array)

\$iMultiplier = 2
For \$i = 1 To UBound(\$array)-1
\$return = \$array[\$i] * \$iMultiplier
ConsoleWrite(\$return & @CRLF)
If IsInt(\$i/4) Then \$iMultiplier+=1
Next```

oops, misread your second one...you can instead do this....will loop through the records, and multiply by 1 (basically copy the initial 96), then enumerate the multiplier continually (after looping through the file each time), until line 26000 is reached:

```#include <File.au3>
\$file = @DesktopDir & "\temp.txt"
\$file_output = @DesktopDir & "\output.txt"

Local \$array[1]
_FileReadToArray(\$file,\$array)
_FileCreate(\$file_output)
\$hOutput = FileOpen(\$file_output,2)
\$iMultiplier = 1
\$iCounter = 1
While True
For \$i = 1 To UBound(\$array)-1
If \$iCounter > 26000 Then ExitLoop 2
FileWriteLine(\$hOutput, \$array[\$i] * \$iMultiplier)
\$iCounter += 1
Next
\$iMultiplier += 1
WEnd

FileClose(\$hOutput)```

If you don't need the initial copy to the file (multiply times 1) then set \$iMultiplier = 2, instead of 1

thanks a lot

can you make it so i don't modify the \$iMultiplier manually, after each 92 numbers it doesn't go +1 by itself

Another solution

```#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
dim \$array

_FileReadToArray(@ScriptDir & "\numbers.txt",\$array)
_ArrayDelete(\$array,0)
_ArrayDisplay(\$array)

;loop through array to find last unique element in seriesrepeat
\$index_of_last_unique_element = 0
for \$x = 1 to UBound(\$array)-1
if \$array[0] = \$array[\$x] Then
\$index_of_last_unique_element = \$x-1
ExitLoop
EndIf
Next

\$multiplier = 2
for \$x = 0 to UBound(\$array)-1
if \$array[\$x] * \$multiplier <= 2600 Then
\$array[\$x] *= \$multiplier
Else
ExitLoop
EndIf
if \$x <> 0 and mod(\$x,\$index_of_last_unique_element) = 0 then
\$multiplier += 1
EndIf
Next

_ArrayDisplay(\$array,"Finished")```

Jaberwocky, I already have proven that I 'can'; in fact, I 'will' continue to help.

I like to answer those posts that require logical solutions.  He may not learn anything, and will post more similar questions, and I will answer those as well.  I'm in it for the puzzles, not your affirmations.

If you want to enumerate the multiplier every 96 numbers, do this:

```#include <File.au3>
\$file = @DesktopDir & "\temp.txt"
\$file_output = @DesktopDir & "\output.txt"

Local \$array[1]
_FileReadToArray(\$file,\$array)
_FileCreate(\$file_output)
\$hOutput = FileOpen(\$file_output,2)
\$iMultiplier = 1
\$iCounter = 1
While True
For \$i = 1 To 96
FileWriteLine(\$hOutput, \$array[\$iCounter] * \$iMultiplier)
\$iCounter += 1
Next
\$iMultiplier += 1
WEnd

FileClose(\$hOutput)```

This assumes your file already has the 26000 lines, with repeating integers.  Let me know if that's not the case.

That's helpful. What is the error message, are we supposed to guess?

oops, need to put in a check that \$iCounter is not over ubound of the array

If \$iCounter < Ubound(\$array) Then...

If \$iCounter is above or equal, then you need to force the scripts exit (exit command)

this what you wrote works

Local \$array[1]
_FileReadToArray(\$file,\$array)
_FileCreate(\$file_output)
\$hOutput = FileOpen(\$file_output,2)
\$iMultiplier = 2
\$iCounter = 1
While True
For \$i = 1 To UBound(\$array)-1
If \$iCounter > 92 Then ExitLoop 2
FileWriteLine(\$hOutput, \$array[\$i] * \$iMultiplier)
\$iCounter += 1
Next
\$iMultiplier += 2
WEnd

FileClose(\$hOutput)```

but i need "\$iMultiplier += 2" to go +1 every 92 multiplied numbers

Is this for a game? You might want to read the Forum Rules.

Unless the game is Math Blaster this is very clearly not game automation.  It might be tracking weapon stats or even forecasting future attributes, but a script that multiplies every value in an array by \$x should be of no concern, even if he said "i use this for hacking and game automation and circumventing authentication."

Actually the rules clearly state that no game automation in any way whatsoever shall be discussed.  So if this is indeed for a game then it should be dealt with by a moderator as that moderator sees fit to deal with it.

```1. Do not ask for help with AutoIt scripts, post links to, or start discussion topics on the following subjects:

Malware of any form - trojan, virus, keylogger, spam tool, "joke/spoof" script, etc.
Bypassing of security measures - log-in and security dialogs, CAPTCHAs, anti-bot agents, software activation, etc.
Automation of software/sites contrary to their EULA (see Reporting bullet below).
Launching, automation or script interaction with games or game servers, regardless of the game.
Running or injecting any code (in any form) intended to alter the original functionality of another process.
Decompilation of AutoIt scripts or details of decompiler software.

This list is non-exhaustive - the Moderating team reserve the right to close any thread that they feel is contrary to the ethos of the forum.```

No one said you couldn't or should not help.  However, what you are providing isn't help.  In my short time on these forums I've gathered that the consensus of this forum by people smarter and more experienced than me is that it is pointless to just give outright solutions without the OP doing anything on their part.  You're not helping AutoIt in any way.  Rather you're only helping only your self.  If you need to solve puzzles I'm sure that you can find plenty of your own solve.  Unless you can't?

Hi,

The script in question merely manipulates a text file on the Desktop - as such I see nothing wrong with it. The script itself does not interact with a game - which is the litmus test as set out in the Forum rules.

boththose suggested that this thread would be legal:

even if he said "i use this for hacking and game automation and circumventing authentication."

In fact it would be quite the opposite. If someone openly admits that they are seeking help for something prohibited by the Forum rules then the thread is automatically "out-of-bounds" as we are not prepared to assist anyone to circumvent the rules if that is their stated aim - even if the proximate problem is not specifically game-related. People might like to read my final post in this thread.

I hope that is clear.

i said the script would be of no concern (which it really wouldn't)...forum legality of intent notwithstanding.
