Reading Text file and write into array

Recommended Posts

Siryx

Hey all,

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

$file = "D:\Dokumente\Tracklist.txt"
FileOpen($file, 0)
Global $arr
For $i = 1 to _FileCountLines($file)
    $line = FileReadLine($file, $i)
    $arr[_FileCountLines($file)]
    $arr[$i] = $line
Next
_ArrayDisplay($line)

#cs
_ArraySort($arr,
#ce

why doesn't it work? I wanted to use _ArraySort and let it be sorted alphabetically but I didn't even came that far.. 

I wanted to read each line then write it into an array with [linenumber] - line

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

$file = "D:\Dokumente\Tracklist.txt"
FileOpen($file, 0)
Global $arr[1000]
For $i = 1 to _FileCountLines($file)
    $line = FileReadLine($file, $i)
    ReDim $arr[_FileCountLines($file)+1]
    $arr[$i] = $line
Next
_ArrayDisplay($arr)

#cs
_ArraySort($arr,
#ce

 

my bad.. but how to sort alphabetically? _arraysort helpfile doesn't help me and google doesn't help me either :/

do I have to turn the first character into ascii or sth and then sort then make it backwards? :x

nvm it does it automatically.. lol

Maybe FileListToArray FileReadToArray is what you're looking for?

nah its all good, I have a txt and I wanted to read in the lines into an array, which worked, now I used arraysort to make it sort alphabetically :) I found out by trial and error :P

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

$file = "D:\Dokumente\Tracklist.txt"
FileOpen($file, 0)
Global $arr[1000]
ReDim $arr[_FileCountLines($file)+1]

For $i = 1 to _FileCountLines($file)
    $line = FileReadLine($file, $i)
    $arr[$i] = $line
Next
_ArraySort($arr)
_ArrayDisplay($arr)

another question, if I want to send $arr[n] to browser, which command should I use? Send ?

I used the wrong function name in my previous post, I meant to say use FileRreadToArray instead.

 

another question, if I want to send $arr[n] to browser, which command should I use? Send ? 

​It depends on which browser you're using, AutoIt comes with the Internet Explorer UDFs that allow you to use it with IE, there's a FF UDF in the examples scripts forum, and other methods of using Chrome. Send is probably a last resort function to use, it's not very reliable.

That is a pretty vague question; it depends on which browser, and which control within the browser. 

Edit D'oh, too slow

​so I could have avoided "a lot" of work using filereadtoarray? damn .. :D hmmm okay so I will search for something to work with chrome..

Siryx,

F.Y.I.  Please see comments in code...

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

$file = "D:\Dokumente\Tracklist.txt"

#cs

FileOpen($file, 0)                      ; this stmt has no effect because there is no variable assigned to contain the file handle
                                        ; the stmt would normally be written as "local $hfl = fileopen($file,0)"

Global $arr[1000]
ReDim $arr[_FileCountLines($file)+1]    ; these two stmt could have been expressed as "Global $arr[_FileCountLines($file)+1]"

For $i = 1 to _FileCountLines($file)    ; _FileCountLines again, start of performance issues...should be ubound($arr) - 1
    $line = FileReadLine($file, $i)     ; performance hog - each FileReadLine causes an open/close sequence when using a file name, as opposed to a file handle
    $arr[$i] = $line
Next
#ce



local $arr = stringsplit(fileread($file),@CRLF,3)   ; read the entire file and split on EOL chars creating array $arr

                                                    ; this assumes @CRLF as the EOL sequence.  The last parm of stringsplit ("3") means
                                                    ;     use the entire delimiter string as the split criteria and do NOT return a count of lines in offset 0

                                                    ;   I might have written the above nested expression as:

                                                    ;       local $sFile = fileread($file)
                                                    ;       local $arr = stringsplit($sFile,@CRLF,3)

_ArraySort($arr)
_ArrayDisplay($arr)

oh well.. so basically I made it overly complicated, and it's even more compressed than before.. Isn't stringsplit supposed to make arr[0] = UBound($arr)?

There is a Chrome UDF in the Examples forum.

​can I integrate it in scite? I made everything as instructed but theres no automatic completion when I write _Chro....

About stringsplit: yes, StringSplit sets the 0'th element to the total count of split elements by default. (But you can change that by supplying $STR_NOCOUNT as the third parameter, see StringSplit helpfile: https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/StringSplit.htm.)

About integration in scite: yes, you can. It's a bit of a hassle IMHO, but certainly well worth it though if you often use the UDF in question. See here: https://www.autoitscript.com/wiki/Adding_UDFs_to_AutoIt_and_SciTE

​I didnt saw that 3 = 2+1 which means both flags are active .. but it seems like I can't change it to 1 bcuz it will fk the script up in a way i dont understand, lol. well better just use ubound i guess

now I got it, using 1 instead of 3 would sort $arr[0] to somewhere else. $arr[0] is then sth else and it fucks up because the amount of entrys in the array is now a string (in my case some songname starting with "!!!" .. :D

What? 
If there is a question in there, could you rephrase it?
Also, please read the helpfile for StringSplit to which I linked earlier (or access it from SciTE). It explains what flags 0, 1 and 2 (or rather $STR_CHRSPLIT, $STR_ENTIRESPLIT and $STR_NOCOUNT) do and it also holds an important note about splitting on @CRLF.
