Array Search ...help

Recommended Posts

I cant seem to get this script to work... I'm tring to find if an IP address has an "ESTABLISHED" connection on a specific port. Here is my code... but it just keeps returning -1

#include <Array.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <String.au3>

Global $aArray = 0

Local $conex

Global $DOS, $Message = '' ;; added "= ''" for show only.

If FileExists(@Scriptdir & "\string.txt") Then
  FileDelete(@Scriptdir & "\string.txt")

$DOS = Run(@ComSpec & " /c netstat -anop TCP", "", @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)
$Message = StdoutRead($DOS)

;MsgBox(0, "Stdout Read:", $Message)

FileWrite(@Scriptdir & "\string.txt", $Message)

_FileWriteToLine(@Scriptdir & "\string.txt",1,"",1)
_FileWriteToLine(@Scriptdir & "\string.txt",1,"",1)
_FileWriteToLine(@Scriptdir & "\string.txt",1,"",1)
_FileWriteToLine(@Scriptdir & "\string.txt",1,"",1)

_FileReadToArray(@Scriptdir & "\string.txt", $aArray, $FRTA_NOCOUNT)

; Search by column (looking in col 2)
Local $iIndex = _ArraySearch($aArray, '""')

MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "" & $iIndex)

The Array is built from a txt file like below

  TCP                LISTENING       880
  TCP                LISTENING       4
  TCP              LISTENING       580
  TCP              LISTENING       1068
  TCP              LISTENING       640
  TCP              LISTENING       1124
  TCP              LISTENING       624
  TCP        ESTABLISHED     3524
  TCP        ESTABLISHED     3524
  TCP              LISTENING       4
  TCP      TIME_WAIT       0
  TCP        TIME_WAIT       0
  TCP        TIME_WAIT       0


ANy help is greatly appreciated...

Why you try to find '""'

in example:


TCP        TIME_WAIT       0


there is no " char.

just try to search for ''

EDIT: btw. what you see in @error ?

Change your _ArraySearch to this.

Local $iIndex = _ArraySearch($aArray, "", Default, Default, 0, 1)

By default, _ArraySearch does a full string search, you're only giving it a partial string to search for and it will not find it unless you tell the function to also do a string-in-string search.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Not exactly what you are asking but may give you some ideas...

This script post processes netstat output and can be filtered by local ip, foreign ip and state.  There is also an auto updating feature.
