Smart Counting of numbers in order to ensure correct sorting

Recommended Posts

kjsisco

This algorithm is loosely based on the Approximate Counting algorithm.  After the user is prompted for a starting number, a "virtual coin flip" is performed.  The numbers are then put in order from least to greatest.  This is great for sorting.

Do you have an example application for the code, because as it stands I've no idea what you can do with it.

Do you routinely run out of Int64 data values?

No, I do not run out of int64 values thank you.  :)

kjsisco,

Please add an example of how this code might be useful in the real world - or are you just posting this for our amusement as you did with your spacetime encryption thread? :huh:

If you let me know what confuses you I can better help.  The counting/sorting algorithm outputs a list based on a number entered.  It is useful for sorting a list.

kjsisco,

We are not going round this buoy again. As you say it is useful for sorting a list, please post an AutoIt script example of how you might use your code to sort this list. :)

#include <Array.au3>

Global $aList[100]

For $i = 0 To 99
    $aList[$i] = "Element " & $i
Next

_ArrayShuffle($aList)

_ArrayDisplay($aList, "Shuffled", Default, 8)

kjsisco,

As you seem to be ignoring any requests to post examples, you are now on Moderator queue so we can prevent you from posting any more of these useless scraps. :naughty:

      How to use _Excel_RangeSort to sort my excel file by three different headers Column A1, B1, and C1 have headers on which I want to sort by. The headers on which I want to sort are department, employee type, and name.
      I still really new to AutoIt so I do not actually know how to properly start this line or lines of code, to be honest. The example code is the best I can do.
      _Excel_RangeSort($OpenWorkbook, Default, "A1:C1", "1:1", $xlDescending, Default, $xlYes, Default, $xlSortRows) I just need to sort by those three headers in that order of department, employee type, and name, plus in descending order.
       
      any and all help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!

      So I've made this script that detects how long i have held down my left mouse button for and stores the information in an array and then sorts its using _ArraySort but the output is half sorted half broken.
      Here's my script:
      HotKeySet("{F1}","_exit") #include <Misc.au3> #include <Timers.au3> #include <Array.au3> Local $dll = DllOpen("user32.dll") $on = False Global $array[0] While(1) If _IsPressed(01,$dll) Then $timer = _Timer_Init() While _IsPressed(01,$dll) Sleep(1) WEnd $time = _Timer_Diff($timer) _ArrayAdd($array,"Time: " & Floor($time) & " ms") ;~ ConsoleWrite("Time: " & Floor($time) & " ms" & @CRLF) EndIf Sleep(50) WEnd Func _exit() _ArraySort($array) _ArrayDisplay($array) Exit EndFunc And the output:

      See how its not sorted?  What is the problem here?

      Hey there!
      I was thinking about building a chatting artificial intelligence in AutoIt

      I've been all the day learning about machine learning algorithms, but most of them were made for other type of areas such as marketing.
      Anyone knows an algorithm for sentences and context pattern finding i can study?
       
      I would also like to implement features like finding on memory related sentences and compare them
      I.e. Hello, how are you
      And split that sentence into 2 type of refferences to the answer, 'Hello' and 'How are you'
      I.e. Wanna play?
      I would like to let the bot understand same for "Wanna play" and "Wanna play?"
      Or for "Hello bot' and "Hello"
       
      Or memory finding message by conversation
      I have made a memory array based on the conversation i had with the bot, but i couldnt figure a way to make the bot find in memory, even though is supposed to work properly
      $ArrayTraceB = 0 $MemoryArray = StringSplit($Memory, '|') For $D in $SentenceKeyArray If $D = 'about' Then MemoryFunction($D, $ArrayTraceB, $SentenceKeyArray) Else $ArrayTraceB = $ArrayTraceB +1 EndIf Next Like on that code snap which leads to this function
      Func MemoryFunction($Call, $Trace, ByRef $KeyArray) $MemoryArray = StringSplit($Memory, '|') If $Call = 'About' Then $FirstArray = 1 For $Ref In $MemoryArray If $FirstArray = 1 Then $FirstArray = 0 Else $NeuronValues = $NeuronValues & '|' & $Neurons[$Ref] EndIf Next $NeuronValuesArray = StringSplit($NeuronValues, '|') $ArrayTrace = $Trace +1 $Topic = '' While 1 If $ArrayTrace >= $KeyArray[0] Then ExitLoop Else $Topic = $Topic & ' ' & $KeyArray[$ArrayTrace] $ArrayTrace = $ArrayTrace +1 EndIf Sleep(50) WEnd $ArrayTrace = 0 $bFound = False _ArrayDisplay($NeuronValuesArray) For $i = 0 To $NeuronValuesArray[0] ; Test from element 0 to the last element of the array If StringInStr($Topic, $NeuronValuesArray[$i]) Then $bFound = True ExitLoop ; Unless i need to find more instances we exit this part of the code imediately Global $ArrayX = $i EndIf Next If $bFound = False Then MsgBox(0, '', '-' & $Topic & '-') $Answer = "I dont remember anything about " & $Topic $WaitYesNo = True $BehaviorFlag = 2 AnswerSentence($Answer, $BehaviorFlag) Else _ArrayDisplay($NeuronValuesArray) MsgBox(0, '', $ArrayX) $Answer = 'I remember a message saying "' & $NeuronValuesArray[$ArrayX] & '", do you want to talk about that?' $WaitYesNo = True $BehaviorFlag = 4 AnswerSentence($Answer, $BehaviorFlag) EndIf EndIf EndFunc It always misses the last word and adds an empty space char at start.
      I would appreciate any suggestions

      Hi everybody,
      i have a question related to strings items in an Array and sorting. Maybe someone can advice me how to solve the issue.
      I have an Array of strings, every item of the Array is as following:
      INFO [13.06.2017 11:48:01] [Thread-13] [ConGenImpUsb -> waitForConnection]  INFO [07.06.2017 08:55:44] [main] MDU5 - Ver 5.1x I want to sort the item in the array by date and time, is there any function which allows me to sort by date/time?
      Thanks in advance
