quickest way to format a mac address?

25 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

What is the fastest (least code) method for turning a "raw" mac id into a "formatted" one?

i.e. turn 001122334455 into 00-11-22-33-44-55

how about this

Dim $Final = "", $xt = 1

$String =  "001122334455"

$Result = StringSplit($String, "")

For $x = 1 To $Result[0]
    
    If $x = $xt + 2 Then
        $xt = $x
        $Final = $Final & "-"
    EndIf
    
    $Final = $Final & $Result[$x]
    
    
Next

MsgBox(0,"Final Result", $Final )

$Result = StringSplit($String, "")
If $x = $xt + 2 Then

I like the stringsplit using "empty" and the use of $xt. Thank you! For some reason I thought you could use RegExp or StringFormat, as I really don't understand what those are for... ;)

Heres my contribution:

Dim $mac_addy
$mac = "112233445566"
For $x = 1 To StringLen($mac) Step 2
    If $mac_addy = "" Then
        $mac_addy = StringMid($mac, $x, 2)
    Else
        $mac_addy = $mac_addy & "-" & StringMid($mac, $x, 2)
    EndIf
Next
Msgbox(0, "", $mac_addy)

Here's what I came up with...

Dim $strMAC = "001122334455"
Dim $strTemp
For $x = 0 to (StringLen($strMAC) / 2) - 1
    $strTemp = $strTemp & StringMid($strMAC, 1 + ($x * 2), 2) & "-"
Next
$strMAC = StringLeft($strTemp, StringLen($strTemp) - 1)

$mac_addy = $mac_addy & "-" & StringMid($mac, $x, 2)

Sherman, get me another cigar! What's great about coding is that there are always 5 ways to accomplish the same thing! StringMid and Step 2...

(StringLen($strMAC) / 2) - 1

StringMid($strMAC, 1 + ($x * 2), 2) & "-"

I'm running out of cigars, people! StringLen divided by 2 and $x times 2... who woulda thunk? Another superb offering! Edited by jefhal

How about:

$raw = "001122334455"
$formatted = StringLeft($raw, 2)
for $i = 3 to StringLen($raw) - 1 Step 2
$formatted = $formatted & "-" & StringMid($raw, $i, 2)
Next

BlueBearrOddly enough, this is what I do for fun.

$formatted = StringLeft($raw, 2)

for $i = 3 to StringLen($raw) - 1 Step 2

Wow! Give the loop a headstart by setting $formatted to the first two chars. Sweet. Panatella or Churchill?

Here's my own attempt at the cigar!

dim $var = "001a2b3c4d5e", $ans = ""
for $i = 1 to 11 step 2
    $ans = stringleft($ans & StringMid($var,$i,2) & "-",17)
Next
MsgBox(4096,"answer is: ",$ans)

Of course, this was AFTER seeing all of your fine attempts!

The Test... 1 to 21 numbers picked at random

the script

For $x = 1 To $Result[0]
    If $x = $xt + 2 Then
        $xt = $x
        $Final = $Final & "-"
    EndIf
    $Final = $Final & $Result[$x]
Next

_FileWriteLog("C:\test.txt", "Valuater " & $Final )

Next

_FileWriteLog("C:\test.txt", "*************************************************************")

Nobody could do it without a loop, eh?

Local $sOriginal = "112233445566"
Local $sFormatted = StringRegExpReplace($sOriginal, "(.{2}){6}", "\1-\2-\3-\4-\5-\6")
MsgBox(0, "", $sFormatted)

Valuater- I hate to burst such a BIG bubble, but MAC-ID's always come in six pairs. You do win First Prize for being "First" with a solution! That is often better than "Perfect"!

By the way, how did my code fare?

YES! THAT's WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR! I could feel that RegExp had SOMETHING to do with formatting, but could NOT figure it out from the Vulcan writing in the help file on StringRegExpReplace. (Fine if you're a Vulcan --- or a Valik!) :dance:

Thanks to everyone for a very entertaining evening and a lot of first class solutions to this infuriatingly simple problem. I really do need it for work... Sleep well! :P:mad2::oops:

While such a comment may suffice to confuse an art student you forget that you are dealing with a bunch of people writing software (more or less). I see nothing wrong with asking to pick a color between two numbers although your choice of numbers relegates to selecting only black.

Maybe when we go to MACv6 your solution will be ideal! ;)

Valuater- Thanks for plotting my solution! You're right about the General solution being better than just a specific solution (didn't it take Einstein longer to create the General Theory of Relativity?) Of course, the next problem that came into mind was formatting a phone number! I'm going to look at RegExp's to see if I can extend Valik's ideas to a 3-3-4 format. Time to get out the Vulcan Dictionary!

Here's the code (thanks to Valik) for formatting a phone number!

Local $sOriginal = "1234567890"
Local $sFormatted = StringRegExpReplace($sOriginal, "(.{3}){2}(....{1})", "\1-\2-\3")
MsgBox(0, "", $sFormatted)

Is this the scale from which we are choosing:

1 Microwave

2 Infrared

3 Red

4 Orange

5 Yellow

6 Green

7 Blue

8 Violet

9 Ultraviolet

10 Xray

Do the colors have to come from the Human "visible spectrum", or some other sample population?
