Search an array for duplicates?

18 posts in this topic

Hello everyone :),

Let's say I have an array that contains these numbers: 2,5,7,2,25,6,31,1,24,5,7,8,7,99

How would I make my program be able to tell me something like "There are three 7's".

Is it possible to make an array detect duplicates and notify you?

Thanks,

Brian

The _ArrayFindAll() UDF can be used to do this for you.

edit:

Here's an example:

#include <Array.au3>

Local $aArray[14] = [2,5,7,2,25,6,31,1,24,5,7,8,7,99]
Local $aResult = _ArrayFindAll($aArray, 7)
ConsoleWrite("There are " & UBound($aResult) & " 7's"& @LF)

#Include <Array.au3>

Local $aArray[14] = [2,5,7,2,25,6,31,1,24,5,7,8,7,99]

For $i = ubound($aArray) - 1 to 0 step -1
Local $aResult = _ArrayFindAll($aArray, $aArray[$i])
if ubound($aResult) > 1 Then
msgbox (0 , '' , "There are " & ubound($aResult) & ":  " & $aArray[$i])
for $x = UBound($aResult) - 1 to 0 step - 1
    _ArrayDelete($aArray , $aResult[$x])
Next
Endif
$i = $i - (UBound($aResult) - 1)
Next

a little improvement
this searches any duplicate (no need to know prior what to search)
note: if there are more empty elements are considered duplicate

#include <Array.au3>

Local $aArray[14] = [2,5,7,2,25,6,31,1,24,5,7,8,7,99]
Local $aResult
Local $aArrayUnique = _ArrayUnique($aArray, 1, 0, 0, 0) ; keep only single elements
If UBound($aArrayUnique) = UBound($aArray) Then
    ConsoleWrite("There are not duplicates." & @CRLF)
Else
    For $i = 0 To UBound($aArrayUnique) - 1
        $aResult = _ArrayFindAll($aArray, $aArrayUnique[$i])
        If UBound($aResult) > 1 Then
            ConsoleWrite("There are " & UBound($aResult) & " '" & $aArrayUnique[$i] & "'" & @LF)
        EndIf
    Next
EndIf

Oups, sorry, it's not the good post...

@Chimp, your code does not work (seems to be an error with _ArrayUnique

 

Yes, cause of the second parameter of _ArrayUnique() that now is 0 based, while in previous versions it was 1 based.

Updated working code:

#include <Array.au3>

Local $aArray[14] = [2,5,7,2,25,6,31,1,24,5,7,8,7,99]
Local $aResult
Local $aArrayUnique = _ArrayUnique($aArray, 0, 0, 0, 0) ; keep only single elements
_ArrayDisplay($aArrayUnique)
If UBound($aArrayUnique) = UBound($aArray) Then
    ConsoleWrite("There are not duplicates." & @CRLF)
Else
    For $i = 0 To UBound($aArrayUnique) - 1
        $aResult = _ArrayFindAll($aArray, $aArrayUnique[$i])
        If UBound($aResult) > 1 Then
            ConsoleWrite("There are " & UBound($aResult) & " '" & $aArrayUnique[$i] & "'" & @LF)
        EndIf
    Next
EndIf

Hi sorry to open an older thread, it my first post and stuck. @Chimp I am using the above which is close to working for me.

 

What I have is an array with one column that has usernames and the other column passwords. What I want this script to do is list usernames who share the same password, so to count the column2 and display it. I can get the above working if it is on column1 it displays and counts usernames that are duplicates fine. If I change it to do this on column 2 it detects there is duplicates, but I cant get it to count or display them. I am sure if is something simple,but I just cant get this working and would really appreciate some help.

Here is an example of my data that is split into 2 columns in an array

 

user1: 76560BB696114467
user2: 76560BB696114467
user3: 76560BB696114467
user4: 76560BB696114467
user5: 76560BB696114467
user6: 765454545454545
user7: 7666565656565656
user8: 76560BB6uyuyu567
user1: 76560BB696114467

The array where this data sits is called avIPS.

Local $aResult
Local $aArrayUnique = _ArrayUnique($avIPs, 0, 0, 0, 0) ; keep only single elements
;_ArrayDisplay($aArrayUnique)

If UBound($aArrayUnique) = UBound($avIPs) Then
    ConsoleWrite("There are not duplicates." & @CRLF)

Else
    ConsoleWrite("There are duplicates." & @CRLF)
    For $i = 0 To UBound($aArrayUnique) - 1
       $aResult = _ArrayFindAll($avIPs, $aArrayUnique[$i])
        If UBound($aResult) > 1 Then
            ConsoleWrite("There are " & UBound($aResult) & " '" & $aArrayUnique[$i] & "'" & @LF)
        EndIf
    Next
EndIf

So running the above on my array on matches column1 fine and says there are 2 user1 which is correct

There are duplicates.
There are 2 'user1'

If I alter the above to try and work on the password column (changing 0,0,0,0 to 1,0,0,0 ) then it detects there are duplicates but doesnt count or display them, so is something I need to edit around the Ubound I think?

 

Local $aResult
Local $aArrayUnique = _ArrayUnique($avIPs, 1, 0, 0, 0) ; keep only single elements
;_ArrayDisplay($aArrayUnique)

If UBound($aArrayUnique) = UBound($avIPs) Then
    ConsoleWrite("There are not duplicates." & @CRLF)

Else
    ConsoleWrite("There are duplicates." & @CRLF)
    For $i = 0 To UBound($aArrayUnique) - 1
       $aResult = _ArrayFindAll($avIPs, $aArrayUnique[$i])
        ;If UBound($aResult) > 1 Then
            ConsoleWrite("There are " & UBound($aResult) & " '" & $aArrayUnique[$i] & "'" & @LF)
       ; EndIf
    Next
EndIf

This is then my output, so it knows there are duplicates, but wont count them.

 

There are duplicates.
There are 1 ''
There are 0 ' 76560BB696114467'
There are 0 ' 765454545454545'
There are 0 ' 7666565656565656'
There are 0 ' 76560BB6uyuyu567'

Worst case I would like it to say there are 5x users with password 76560BB696114467 or even better the following usernames have the same password of 76560BB696114467.

This are not real passwords, just an example.

 

Any pointers I would be really grateful. thanks

Sorry to be a pain @iamtheky what would the easiest way using your example to only show usernames/passwords where greater than 1? i.e only display the items in the array if more than 1 user shares the same password. Basically I am only interested in if users have the same password as others.

 

many thanks

check $aUniqueUser[0] > 1

Do that right after its created, and If true then proceed on to change the value in element 0 to the password, add the blank row, and concatenate with final, else continueloop.

Thanks. So if I understand correct you mean add a if $aUniqueUser[0] > 1 then after this line

or do you mean after the end of the script and array afinal is created?

    $aUniqueUser = _ArrayUnique($aMatch)

yeah, you can put an _ArrayDisplay($aUniqueUser) line there as well to debug if there are issues or edge cases unaccounted for.

There it is new folk.  Give all the details, show effort, get multiple responses that solve the problem. That's how this biatch works.  

No one even harassed him for resjacking (which i just coined and should be used everywhere) a thread, because its related, and a complete question.

Thanks all. There has been many times I wanted to post, but got there in the end by looking, trying, more trying and looking at other answers on the forum. I have gone from never using to writing something that is very useful. I didn't want to just post hi how do I do this without even trying, I tried but was above my knowledge in this case, I have several arrays working by reading files, splitting data, etc, but this one got me. thanks

      Hello,
      at first: i'm new here, so please forgive me my mistakes, and show them to me, just that i can learn to do better in the future.
      Now to my Problem: i have an excel sheet, where i just need some columns for further actions, but i have no idea how to add single columns to a new array.
      I found the following code(the one i just added as a file) from 'water' in this forum, but i wont get how i could add multiple columns into a new array.
      The biggest problem in my situation is that i dont know the count of the rows i need for the array, i just got a fix number of rows, which is 4.
       
      Hope you can help me, and sry again for this 'unlucky illustration'.
       
      btw: how can i add code shown as code here, instead of posting it as a attached file?.

      Haven't had much time to code recently. However the following thread inspired me.
      The debate about linear, parallel and binary search methods was rather interesting and, in an attempt to be diplomatic, I decided to combine @jchd's suggestion with @LarsJ's binary search example. I decided that the binary search algorithm required modification to make it more linear. As usual, 'if you invent something, it probably already exists and if it already exists, it exists for a reason'. My first attempt was not all that good. The code worked but was really a mess. I blame peer pressure (to post an example of a parallel search method).  I will delete that old code in due course.
      With a little memory jogging and a glance at the help file, the solution turned out to be quite easy: I just needed a better understanding of Euler. Further modification will be needed to work with more complicated unicode strings. The output could be returned as an array or a delimitered string. I'm not so interested in those details. I'm just going to post the algorithm for now and anyone, who wants to, can modify it to suit their needs. Both arrays must contain at least 1 element.
      Local $aFoo = [0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,19,20,23,24,26,30,35,39,40,41] Local $aBar = [0,1,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,17,18,19,21,24,25,26,27,34,35,38,40] ParallelExponetialSearch($aFoo, $aBar) ; Compares two lists - returning positive matches.

      Afternoon!
      I have a requirement to return both a string and an array from a function so as a result I put them both into an array and returned that.  I can access them in their entirety after returning them but then I can't seem to access the array elements after this.  Should I be able to or is there a prettier way?
      #include <Array.au3> ;Memory info returned as a string and an array $memoryInfo = _getMemoryInfo() msgbox(0,"Memory Info",$memoryInfo[0]) _ArrayDisplay($memoryInfo[1],"Memory as an Array") Local $newArray[7] $memoryInfo[1] = $newArray msgbox(0,"Test element",$newArray[0]) _ArrayDisplay($newArray) Func _getMemoryInfo() Local $newArray[7] Local $array = MemGetStats() $newArray[0] = $array[0] ;% of memory in use $newArray[1] = Round($array[1]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Total physical RAM $newArray[2] = Round($array[2]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Availaible physical RAM $newArray[3] = Round($array[3]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Total pagefile $newArray[4] = Round($array[4]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Available pagefile $newArray[5] = Round($array[5]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Total virtual $newArray[6] = Round($array[6]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Available virtual $memoryUsage = $newArray[1] - $newarray[2] $pagefileUsage = $newArray[3] - $newarray[4] ;Output/Return Local $returnArray[2] $returnArray[0] = "Memory: " & $memoryUsage & " GB/" & $newArray[1] & " GB " & @CRLF & "Pagefile: " & $pagefileUsage & " GB/" & $newArray[3] & " GB " $returnArray[1] = $newArray return $returnArray EndFunc A bit messy but hopefully it's understandable what I'm trying to achieve.
      Thanks!

      I am having difficulties getting updated results from GUICtrlCreateInput. I wrote a small script to demonstrate what I am trying to do.
      This script reads a text file into an array and displays the Name and Number from the text file.
      The user can check a name and change the number, and the results are displayed in _ArrayDisplay.
      Only the Checked names are displayed in their original position. This is necessary for future
      plumbing.
      The problem with this script is the original number is returned, not the changed number. I cannot
      figure out how to get the updated number to be displayed.

I need the modified number to be displayed.
      Thanks in advance for any assistance!

      I am working on a Video Player Test Script. I am reading a text file into a 3d array to be displayed in a GUI.
      Array Content:
      [x][0]FileName.mp4
      [x][1]UsageCount -> Up to a 4 digit number
      [x][2]EnableUsageCount (True/False)
      In the GUI the user can check the filename box, edit the number of usages and check EnableUsageCount to turn on the UsageCount control using the UsageCount number for the maximum number of plays.
      To make this easier to deal with I have removed the EnableUsageCount section, and am just concentrating on getting a method to put the edited (or unchanged) UsageCount in the array. Currently nothing is read into the array, due to my using the wrong method in the Case statement.
      Here are code snippets of what I am trying to do:
      ; Snippets from script ; I read the text file at the bottom and put the .mp4 filenames in $aManifest[x][0] and UsageCount in $aManifest[x][1] ; Then I create a GUI to display the .mp4 filenames with checkboxes and the UsageCount to the right. UsageCount is editable by the user. ; If the filename is checked, I want to read the filename into $aCheckedVideos[x][0] and the updated UsageCount in $aCheckedVideos[x][1] ; The GUICtrlRead($aVideoName[$i]) with Case $GUI_CHECKED & UNCHECKED works for the checkboxes ; This section puts the filenames in the GUI with a checkbox For $i = 0 to $iMMCount Step 1 $sMP4Text = $aManifest[$i][0] $iMP4Length = StringLen($sMP4Text) $aVideoName[$i] = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox($sMP4Text,$iLeft, $iTop) $iTop += 30 Next ; This section reads numbers from the Manifest array, and I want to be able to change the number and have them saved. ; So the Case $GUI_CHECKED & UNCHECKED won't work here, and I can't figure out what I should be doing here. For $i = 0 to $iMMCount Step 1 $sUsageText = $aManifest[$i][1] $aUsageCount[$i] = GUICtrlCreateInput($sUsageText,$iLeft, $iTop, 50,18, $GUI_DOCKAUTO) GUICtrlSetPos($aUsageCount[$i],200) $iTop += 30 Next While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $idCloseGUI For $i = 0 To $iMMNewCount Step 1 Switch GUICtrlRead($aVideoName[$i]) Case $GUI_CHECKED $aCheckedVideos[$i][0] = $aManifest[$i][0] ; If checked, I put the results into a two D array Case $GUI_UNCHECKED ; where Video Name is $aCheckedVideos[x][0] EndSwitch Switch GUICtrlRead($aUsageCounter[$i]) Case $GUI_CHECKED $aCheckedVideos[$i][1] = $aUsageCount[$i] ;I want to put the text (numbers) in $aCheckedVideos[x][1] Case $GUI_UNCHECKED ;but what is returned is blank, probably due to EndSwitch ; $GUI_CHECKED being the wrong thing. Next ExitLoop EndSwitch WEnd ;The txt file I'm reading has the following: ;~ /** Title #1: Big Buck Bunny 1080p **/ ;~ "Name": "Big Buck Bunny", ;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\bbb_1080_60s.mp4", ;~ "UsageCount": 9999, ;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\bbb_1080_60s_enc1.mp4", ;~ "UsageCount": 45, ;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\bbb_1080_60s_enc1.mp4", ;~ "UsageCount": 2, ;~ /** Title #2: Tears of Steel 4K **/ ;~ "Name": "Tears of Steel 4K", ;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\tos_4K_60s_HEVC.mp4", ;~ "UsageCount": 9876, ;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\tos_4K_60s_HEVC_enc2.mp4", ;~ "UsageCount": 0, ;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\tos_4K_60s_HEVC_enc2.mp4", ;~ "UsageCount": 5, I am certain that the section
                          Switch GUICtrlRead($aUsageCounter[$i])
                              Case $GUI_CHECKED
                                  $aCheckedVideos[$i][1] = $aUsageCount[$i]    ;I want to put the text (numbers) in $aCheckedVideos[x][1]
                              Case $GUI_UNCHECKED                                ;but what is returned is blank, probably due to
                          EndSwitch                                            ; $GUI_CHECKED being the wrong thing.

      is wrong, and this is what I am looking for help with. Instead of $GUI_CHECKED what should I be looking for?
      The worst part of this is I had this working late last night, and then lost my changes and cannot for the life of me remember how I had this working.
      Help is truly appreciated!
