Little Bug in _StringRepeat

Recommended Posts


i found and corrected a little bug in _StringRepeat. The function is not working correctly with 0 repetitions... The source is optimized to the core but starting at bit 1 and adding the source later on is not the best option to take. So here is my change if you get in trouble with the same issue.


; #FUNCTION# ====================================================================================================================
; Author ........: Jeremy Landes <jlandes at landeserve dot com>
; Modified.......: guinness - Removed Select...EndSelect statement and replaced with an If...EndIf as well as optimised the code.
; ===============================================================================================================================
Func _StringRepeat($sString, $iRepeatCount)
    ; Casting Int() takes care of String/Int, Numbers.
    $iRepeatCount = Int($iRepeatCount)
    ; Zero is a valid repeat integer.
    If StringLen($sString) < 1 Or $iRepeatCount < 0 Then Return SetError(1, 0, "")
    Local $sResult = ""
    While $iRepeatCount > 0
        If BitAND($iRepeatCount, 1) Then $sResult &= $sString
        $sString &= $sString
        $iRepeatCount = BitShift($iRepeatCount, 1)
    Return $sResult
EndFunc   ;==>_StringRepeat
