How Dirty is this Map action?

Recommended Posts

iamtheky

I gave this as an answer, because it worked as i was playing.  It feels really dirty, just wanted some expert dismantling:

Local $mMap[]
$mMap['cat'] = mapappend($mMap , 'jack')
$mMap['dog'] = mapappend($mMap , 'jeff')
$mMap['pig'] = mapappend($mMap , 'john')

msgbox(0, '' , $mMap[$mMap.cat])
msgbox(0, '' , $mMap[$mMap.dog])
msgbox(0, '' , $mMap[$mMap.pig])

 

same thing i guess inspired to mimic the scripting dictionary example below:

Local $mMap[]
$mMap['cat'] = mapappend($mMap , 'jack')
$mMap['dog'] = mapappend($mMap , 'jeff')
$mMap['pig'] = mapappend($mMap , 'john')

For $each In $mMap
    If stringlen($mMap[$each]) > 1 Then ConsoleWrite(mapkeys($mMap)[$each * 2] & " = " & $mMap[$each] & @CRLF)
Next

I do need to learn more scripting dictionary, it looks great everytime i see it.  However, my curiosity is more about the misuse of map; using the key of one entry to pull the value of another, as best I can describe.

How about this?   Is there any usefulness to having the value be essentially a stored arrayfindall return of the values related to that key?

My thought was that I get to keep an order of updates, but dont know if that is accomplished other ways as well.  

 

local $mMap[]
$mMap['TestCat'] =  MapAppend($mMap , 'Entry 1 about Cat') & "|" & MapAppend($mMap , 'Entry 2 about cat') & "|" & MapAppend($mMap , 'Entry 3 about cat')
$mMap['TestDog'] =  MapAppend($mMap , 'Entry 1 about Dog') & "|" & MapAppend($mMap , 'Entry 2 about Dog') & "|" & MapAppend($mMap , 'Entry 3 about Dog')

_MapAddToKey($mMap , "TestDog" , "An additional entry in the map tied to TestDog")
_MapAddToKey($mMap , "TestCat" , "An additional entry in the map tied to TestCat")
_MapAddToKey($mMap , "TestDog" , "One last entry tied to TestDog")

msgbox(0, '' , _MasterKeyGetValues($mMap.TestDog))
msgbox(0, '' , _MasterKeyGetValues($mMap.TestCat))

Func _MapAddToKey(ByRef $sMap , $sKey , $sValue)
        $sMap[$sKey] &= "|" &  MapAppend($sMap , $sValue)
EndFunc


Func _MasterKeyGetValues($MasterKey)

local $out = ""

$aKeys = stringsplit($MasterKey , "|" , 2)
    For $i = 0 to ubound($aKeys) - 1
        $out &= $mMap[number($aKeys[$i])] & @LF
    Next

return $out
EndFunc
