Keeping a file online and updating it from different instances of my script

Recommended Posts

Newb

Hi everyone,

I want to know if there is a simple way to keep a plain text file online in some way and let multiple copies of my script fetch and update data in it.

 

Of course solutions are multiple, Ftp, sql database and whatever you want. But there is a simple way to do it? Just keeping it online and accessible  and allow the script to modify it.

The idea behind this is that I want to make a keystroke/mouse click counter. As a programmer I type and click all day and I'd like to monitor that kind of stuff and how much I type everyday. I already know multiple solutions that do that, but since I input lot of sensitive data I don't like very much the idea of some software with unknown source to have access to my keystrokes, so I wanted to make a quick script with AutoIT to do that.


I can manage to get something working in C# or whatever you want, but I always prefere AutoIT over everything as I like it very much and usually I can quickly get up and running with my ideas without too much of a hassle.

 

So what that would be? A public FTP folder? or What? There is an easy way without having to configure a server?

Newb,

I want to make a keystroke/mouse click counter

And how is this different to a standard keylogger?

In the way that I just want to count how much times the buttons are pressed, I couldn't care less what is actually typed, if someone types 'apple' I want the number 5 as result, not what the user actually typed.

I can post the source here if you want. Anyway this doesn't make you sure I haven't malicious intentions, so, well, it's finally all up to you. If I really had malicious intentions I could have just not mention what the final use of the program was and just ask you about storing a file online and modifying it.

Then let us limit the script to that and the problem goes away.

You can ask for help about "storing a file online and modifying it" but not for a "keystroke/mouse click counter" - clear now?

      Hello friends, I have a query, it happens that I have a matrix nxn, the first column of this contains each cell a number with 21 digits, when I pass this matrix to Excel I obviously write that number as 1,10016E + 20, I solved it by adding a * at the end of each cell, but I want it to be written as a text so that I do not have to remove that *, I searched in Google but could not find an effective solution, thanks in advance.

      Hi, This is my first post on the AutoIt Forums, I most of the time was able to get help from this community by merely searching though google and have been able to solve hundreds of problems this way, though in this case I was incapable of finding a solution to my problem. I am quite confident that it is a user error (And my fault) but I haven't been able to determine what I did wrong, any and all help would be greatly appreciated! I have uploaded my whole script pardon passwords to provide as much information as possible.
      I declared a global array at the top of the script and am having issues when I try to set it's value, and I fail to understand why.
      Error Message:

      Hey. I'm working on a new project and was wondering if there is a better way to "update" my Column E array. 
      Here is my code: 
      Local $nI  = 0                                                            ;Creates a name index of 0: nI = Name index Local $nII = 1                                                            ;Creates a name index of 1 for second loop: nII = Name Index 2 For    $iN = 0 To $IndexRows Step 1                                       ;Checks the roster for any names that appear twice      For $iN2 = 0 To $IndexRows Step 1          if $d_Names[$nI] == $d_Names[$nII] And $d_Names[$nII] <> "" Then              Local $timeSheetName = _ArraySearch($e_Names, $d_Names[$nI], 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)              ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Found it", $d_Names[$nI] & " In column E on Row " & $timeSheetName)              Local $eI  = $timeSheetName + 1              ;ConsoleWrite($timeSheetName & @CRLF)              ;ConsoleWrite($eI & @CRLF)              ;ConsoleWrite(@CRLF)              _Excel_RangeInsert($OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, "E" & $eI & ":F" & $eI, $xlShiftDown)                                                                          ;Inserts a empty cell in columns E and F.              _Excel_RangeWrite($OpenWorkbook, $OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, $d_Names[$nII], "E" & $eI)                                                                         ;Fills the empty cell in columns E with the doubled name              $aArray_Index = 2                                           ;Array element counter              For $Index = 2 To $IndexRows Step 1                        ;Loops through every row in the Excel file unto no rows are found or a null row is found                  $Array_Value_E = _Excel_RangeRead($OpenWorkbook, Default, "E"&$Index)                  $e_names[$aArray_Index] = $Array_Value_E                ;While the code loops every value in column E is stored in the E array (updating the array)                  $aArray_Index += 1              Next              ExitLoop          EndIf      Next      $nI  += 1      $nII += 1 Next Basically, It checks a roster for people whose name appears twice then inserts a new "row" for that person because they work in two different departments.
      I have to find that name however in Column E if two appear in column D. My code works but I think it is not as efficient as it could be. 
      Any ideas on how to improve the "update" for my array?
      (once it finds the double names in Column D it then searches for that name by going name by name in the Column E array and once it finds it inserts a new row. However, the E array doesn't have that new row stored in it so I have to "update" the array to properly find the next name)
      Any and all tips would be greatly appreciated. 
       
      NOTE: Just assume I'm opening the excel file properly please do not add that code in, it only complicates your answer.
