AutoIt can't handle big data in arrays

Hello everyone :bye:, I am currently having some problems with this cut out from my latest project:

The project is called Magic Number Calculator, Spoiler Alert!

#include <Array.au3>
#include <Debug.au3>

Global Const $eAutoItIncludesFolder = @ProgramFilesDir & "\AutoIt3\Include"
Global Const $eAVIConstantsFile = $eAutoItIncludesFolder & "\AVIConstants.au3"
Global Const $eButtonConstantsFile = $eAutoItIncludesFolder & "\ButtonConstants.au3"
Global Const $eComboConstantsFile = $eAutoItIncludesFolder & "\ComboConstants.au3"
Global Const $eDateTimeConstants = $eAutoItIncludesFolder & "\DateTimeConstants.au3"
Global Const $eEditConstantsFile = $eAutoItIncludesFolder & "\EditConstants.au3"
Global Const $eGUIConstantsExFile = $eAutoItIncludesFolder & "\GUIConstantsEx.au3"
Global Const $eListboxConstantsFile = $eAutoItIncludesFolder & "\ListboxConstants.au3"
Global Const $eListViewConstantsFile = $eAutoItIncludesFolder & "\ListViewConstants.au3"
Global Const $eWindowsConstantsFile = $eAutoItIncludesFolder & "\WindowsConstants.au3"

; Debug
_DebugSetup()
$aArray = LoadConstants($eAVIConstantsFile & '|' & $eButtonConstantsFile & '|' & $eComboConstantsFile & '|' & $eDateTimeConstants & '|' & $eEditConstantsFile & '|' & $eGUIConstantsExFile & '|' & $eListboxConstantsFile & '|' & $eListViewConstantsFile & '|' & $eWindowsConstantsFile)
_DebugOut("Returned")
_ArrayDisplay($aArray)

Func LoadConstants($sFile)
    $aFiles = StringSplit($sFile, '|') ; Load the list of files to load
    _DebugOut("Loaded list of files")
    Local $aReturn = LoadConstants($aFiles[1]) ; Load the first file
    _DebugOut("Loaded the first file")
    For $i = 2 To $aFiles[0] ; Load remaining files
        $aTempArray = ConstantFileTo2DArray($aFiles[$i]) ; Store the contants to concatenate
        _DebugOut("Loaded " & $i & " Files")

        _DebugOut("Concatenated")
    Next

    Return $aReturn ; Return the Array
EndFunc   ;==>LoadConstants

Func ConstantFileTo2DArray($sFile)
    $aFile = FileReadToArray($sFile)
    Local $sLinesToBeDeleted = "0;" ; Remove line.no 1 because it always contains #include-once
    For $i = 0 To UBound($aFile) - 1
        If StringLeft($aFile[$i], 1) = ';' Or $aFile[$i] = "" Then $sLinesToBeDeleted &= $i & ';' ; Detect if the present line is a comment or empty ;)
    Next
    $sLinesToBeDeleted = StringTrimRight($sLinesToBeDeleted, 1) ; Trim the last semi-colon
    _ArrayDelete($aFile, $sLinesToBeDeleted) ; Delete empty lines
    For $i = 0 To UBound($aFile) - 1
        $aFile[$i] = StringStripWS($aFile[$i], $STR_STRIPALL) ; Remove any Space, CR, LF etc. chars from the string (Refer to StringStipWS's documentation for more info)
        $aFile[$i] = StringTrimLeftUntil('$', $aFile[$i], 1, False) ; Remove any Global Const before the variable
        If Not StringInStr($aFile[$i], ';') = 0 Then $aFile[$i] = StringTrimRightUntil(';', $aFile[$i]) ; Remove any comments (For example, like this comment trailing after the function :P)
    Next
    Local $aReturn[UBound($aFile)][2]
    $sLinesToBeDeleted = ""
    For $i = 0 To UBound($aFile) - 1
        $aTempArray = StringSplit($aFile[$i], '=', $STR_NOCOUNT) ; Split the Variable & Value
        $aTempArray[0] = StringTrimLeft($aTempArray[0], 1) ; Trim the dollar sign
        Assign($aTempArray[0], $aTempArray[1], 1) ; Assign the constants as variables (forced in local scope) for solving them using execute()
        $aTempArray[1] = Execute($aTempArray[1])
        Assign($aTempArray[0], $aTempArray[1], 1) ; Assign the calculated value again
        $aReturn[$i][0] = '$' & $aTempArray[0]
        $aReturn[$i][1] = $aTempArray[1]
        If Not IsInt($aTempArray[1]) Then $sLinesToBeDeleted &= $i & ';' ; Delete constants which are not intergers
    Next
    _ArrayDelete($aReturn, StringTrimRight($sLinesToBeDeleted, 1)) ; Delete constants which are not intergers
    Return $aReturn
EndFunc   ;==>ConstantFileTo2DArray

Func StringTrimLeftUntil($sDelimiter, $sString, $iOccurrence = 1, $bTrimDelimiter = True)
    $iDelimiterLen = StringLen($sDelimiter)
    $sString = StringTrimLeft($sString, StringInStr($sString, $sDelimiter, 2, $iOccurrence) + ($iDelimiterLen - 1))
    If $bTrimDelimiter = False Then $sString = $sDelimiter & $sString
    Return $sString
EndFunc   ;==>StringTrimLeftUntil

Func StringTrimRightUntil($sDelimiter, $sString, $iOccurrence = 1, $bTrimDelimiter = True)
    $iStringLen = StringLen($sString)
    $iDelimiterLen = StringLen($sDelimiter)
    $iOccurrence -= $iOccurrence * 2
    $sString = StringTrimRight($sString, ($iStringLen - StringInStr($sString, $sDelimiter, 2, $iOccurrence)) - ($iDelimiterLen - 1) + $iDelimiterLen)
    If $bTrimDelimiter = False Then $sString &= $sDelimiter
    Return $sString
EndFunc   ;==>StringTrimRightUntil

 

The code looks good, but if you run it AutoIt crashes :(... Any tips or suggestion to make it work again :ermm:?

P.S Is that code working for you?

No. On Windows 7 I get  "Loaded list of files" in the debug window over and over again until the script crashes.
After a quick glance at your code I think you are passing the wrong parameter.

Func LoadConstants($sFile)
    $aFiles = StringSplit($sFile, '|') ; Load the list of files to load
    _DebugOut("Loaded list of files")
    Local $aReturn = LoadConstants($sFile) ; Load the first file

should be

Func LoadConstants($sFile)
    $aFiles = StringSplit($sFile, '|') ; Load the list of files to load
    _DebugOut("Loaded list of files")
    Local $aReturn = LoadConstants($aFiles[1]) ; Load the first file

Why do you recursively call LoadConstants?
Right now you call LoadConstants until the universe falls apart. You need to define a condition when to exit the recursion.

      hi,
      i have checkboxes and each checkbox that checked, i put in array. 
      now, im stuck on how to loop the checked array and store in in one variable. what i can do now, is only write the result into a text file. 
      below is the code:
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> ;~ #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> Global $Count = 3 Global $CheckBoxP[$Count] Global $step[$Count] global $array1[1] Global $ExitResult $hGUI = GUICreate("Summary Steps", 500, 400) GUISetFont(12, 400, "Tahoma") GUICtrlCreateLabel( "Please Select the Summary Steps for Script Check", 70, 20) GUISetFont(10, 400, "Tahoma") Global $array_Pstep[3] = ["fix2","fix1","fix3"] global $step[3] = ["2","3","4"] $Spacing = 50 For $i = 0 To UBound($array_Pstep) - 1 $CheckBoxP[$i] = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox($array_Pstep[$i], 80, $Spacing + (20 * $i), 65, 17) Next $submit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Submit",180, 280, 80, 30) $exit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit",180, 320, 80, 30) GUISetState() While 1 $Msg = GUIGetMsg() Select case $Msg=$submit For $i = 0 To $Count - 1 If GUICtrlRead($CheckBoxP[$i]) = $GUI_CHECKED Then _ArrayAdd($array1, $step[$i]) EndIf Next Global $logfilerray = @WorkingDir & "\checkedlist.txt" FileDelete ($logfilerray) Global $readlogfile = FileOpen($logfilerray,1) for $a = 1 to UBound($array1) - 1 ;~ $var=$array1[$a] FileWriteLine($readlogfile,$array1[$a]) Next FileClose($readlogfile) Exit case $Msg=$exit $ExitResult = MsgBox(1,"Summary Step", "Continue to Exit ?") if $ExitResult = 1 Then ;ok Exit EndIf Exit EndSelect WEnd

      How do you perform a nested loop function with a multidimensional array from 2 lists.
      for i in list1
      (open file) extract variable
          while open for i in list 2
          (open file2) extract variable
       
      var1 + var2 = (search term)

      The list sizes will more than likely consist of different lengths.
       
      What is the best approach to accomplishing this method?

      Hello!

      I am working on a function that I am just getting lost on. The goal is a multiple nested loop.

      Here are the steps:
      Contents of file1.txt::
      [topic] var1=Name var2=OtherName var3=SomeotheName Contents of file2.txt::
      [subTopic] top=sub1 top2=sub2 top3=sub3 The Shell I am working from::
      #include <file.au3> $file = "c:\yourfile.txt" FileOpen($file, 0) For $i = 1 to _FileCountLines($file) $line = FileReadLine($file, $i) msgbox(0,'','the line ' & $i & ' is ' & $line) Next FileClose($file) Understanding however that the "msgbox" needs to then become a variable. in example the following::
      $file = "c:\yourfile.txt" FileOpen($file, 0) While true( prog.exe is running && "WinName" is open) do For $i = 1 to _FileCountLines($file) $line = FileReadLine($file, $i) ;Open File to log "current location of file 1" FileWriteLine ("filename", $i & ' is ' & $line) var = $line Next $file2 = "c:\yourfile.txt" FileOpen($file, 0) For $i = 1 to _FileCountLines($file) $line = FileReadLine($file, $i) ; OpenFile to log "Current location of file 2" FileWriteLine ("filename", $i & ' is ' & $line) Next FileClose($file2) FileClose($file) The goal in written form is the following ::

      While in "OpenWindow"
          read from file 1 starting at line 1 until end of file.
         file 1 is a list of names to be searched.
         With $line selected, add this element to the element in file 2.
       
      The search of a variables in list 1 and list 2 differ on the amount of posts that day. (This is not a web based platform, it is a game) I need to search 2 names and take a screenshot of the out put. The sizes of the names list depend on the activity of names at the time of search.
      This loop continues until all the names from both lists have been searched. Mostly in the format of::
      File1= item
      File2= Vendor
       
      Item + Vendor  ( Capture screen, scroll) -- Not sure how to detect if I need to scroll)
       
      Thank you for your help and support!

      Hi Virtual People,
      My array works perfectly fine. However, what is the best practice if the line in the array doesn't have the correct amount of columns and if I can add a placeholder?

       
      For $count = 1 To _FileCountLines($FileRead1) Step 1 $string = FileReadLine($FileRead1, $count) $input = StringSplit($string, ",", 1) $value1 = $input[1] $value2 = $input[2] $value3 = $input[3] _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value2, "A1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value1, "B1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value3, "C1") Next

      hi all,
      reviewing the forum, this thread is applicable: 
       
       
      I wanted to know if there is now a better way to do this?
      In essence, I load a tab delimited txt file into an array (works well). I used tab, as some fields in the original csv contains commas.
      However, I needed autoit to manipulate this array, and output it as a csv.
      IF my array contains items with a comma, without double quotes around the field, then how best do I get a csv out of this?
      My current workaround is to filewritefromarray tab delimited, then open it in excel and save as a csv. I will need to check this to see how the address fields behave that contain a comma.
       
      Any thoughts would be appreciated.
