Comparing strings

8 posts in this topic

I've just written a small script that compares two strings and returns the similarity of those two in %. I know of StringCompare, but I want to get a percentage and I also want to get in touch with Autoit.

Compiling doesn't cause any problems, but actually running it does. In line 20 it has a problem with the index and says "Subscript used on non-accessible variable". What's causing that problem, and how can I solve it? Thanks! And sorry for my ugly style

Try this:
 

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Global $sTitle = "Similarity"
Global $tTextA = InputBox($sTitle, "Data 1: ")
Global $tTextB = InputBox($sTitle, "Data 2: ")
If $tTextA = $tTextB Then Exit MsgBox($MB_TOPMOST, $sTitle, "Smiler: 100%")
Local $nStringLenTextA = StringLen($tTextA)
Local $nStringLenTextB = StringLen($tTextB)
$tTextA = StringReplace($tTextA, " " & " ", " ")
Local $cSpit = StringInStr($tTextA, " ") ? " " : ""
Local $sSpitA = StringSplit($tTextA, $cSpit)
Local $Smiler = 0, $px = UBound($sSpitA)
For $i = 1 To $px - 1
    If StringInStr($tTextB, $sSpitA[$i]) Then $Smiler += 1
    ConsoleWrite($sSpitA[$i] & " : " & $tTextB & @CRLF)
Next
ConsoleWrite($px & @CRLF)
If $px > 3 Then $px -= 1
Local $SmilerPercent = ($Smiler * 100) / ($px - 1);$nStringLenTextB
If $SmilerPercent > 199 Then $SmilerPercent = 99
MsgBox($MB_TOPMOST, $sTitle, "Smiler: " & $SmilerPercent & "%")

Exit

Wicked_Caty,

$a and $b are NOT arrays.  Try it using stringmid like this...

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

$title = "Similarity"
;~ $a = InputBox($title, "Data 1")
;~ $b = InputBox($title, "Data 2")
local $a = 'abcd'

local $b = 'abce'

$n = 0
$la = StringLen($a)
$lb = StringLen($b)
$lc = ($la + $lb) / 2

If $la > $lb Then
   $l = $la
ElseIf $lb > $la Then
   $l = $lb

Else
   $l = $lc

EndIf



For $i = 1 To $l
    ConsoleWrite($i & @CRLF)
   If (stringmid($a,$i,1) = stringmid($b,$i,1)) Then
      $n = $n + 1
   EndIf

Next

$p = $n / $l * 100

MsgBox($MB_TOPMOST, $title, $a & @CRLF & $b & @CRLF & $title & ":" & @TAB & $p)

Exit

note: only strings of equal length tested...input supplied as strings, not user input

edit: also your loop should start at position "1" for strings

Similarity.au3

The problem is you're trying to use a variable that is not there.

You can solve it by ensuring you do not try to access a non existent variable.

Wicked_Caty,

Streamlined the code a bit.  If the string lengths are equal just use one or the other as the length value, no need to add them and divide by two.  I used a ternary expression to replace all of your length determination code...

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

$title = "Similarity"
;~ $a = InputBox($title, "Data 1")
;~ $b = InputBox($title, "Data 2")
local $a = 'abcdf'

local $b = 'abce'



local $len_to_check = (stringlen($a) > stringlen($b)) ? stringlen($a) : stringlen($b), $p = 0, $n = 0

For $i = 1 To $len_to_check
   If (stringmid($a,$i,1) = stringmid($b,$i,1)) Then
      $n = $n + 1
   EndIf

Next

$p = $n / $len_to_check * 100

MsgBox($MB_TOPMOST, $title, $a & @CRLF & $b & @CRLF & $title & ":" & @TAB & $p)

Exit

Good Luck,

kylomas

jguinch,

I believe you refer to my unifuzz SQLite extension; start reading here, then have luck finding the actual post where the extension resides later in this same thread. The new search feature is terrible. For the matter of string comparison outside of SQLite, this post may give something to work with.

According to the Levenshtein algorithm (https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Algorithm_Implementation/Strings/Levenshtein_distance#VBScript), from the VBS code :

$s1 = "My String 1"
$s2 = "My String 2 !"



Local $Levenshtein = Levenshtein($s1, $s2)

Local $iMaxLen = StringLen (  StringLen($s1) > StringLen($s2) ? $s1 : $s2 )
Local $percent = Round(($iMaxLen - $Levenshtein) * 100 / $iMaxLen, 2)

ConsoleWrite($percent & "%")


Func levenshtein( $a, $b )
    Local $i, $j, $cost, $d[1], $min1, $min2, $min3

    If StringLen( $a ) = 0 Then Return StringLen( $b )
    If StringLen( $b ) = 0 Then Return StringLen( $a )

    ReDim $d[ StringLen( $a ) + 1][ StringLen( $b ) + 1]

    For $i = 0 To StringLen( $a )
        $d[$i][0] = $i
    Next

    For $j = 0 To StringLen( $b )
        $d[ 0][$j] = $j
    Next

    For $i = 1 To StringLen( $a )
        For $j = 1 To StringLen( $b )
            $cost =  ( StringMid($a, $i, 1) = StringMid($b, $j, 1) ? 0 : 1)

            $min1 = $d[$i - 1][$j] + 1
            $min2 = $d[$i][$j - 1] + 1
            $min3 = $d[$i - 1][$j - 1] + $cost

            If $min1 <= $min2 And $min1 <= $min3 Then
                $d[$i][$j] = $min1
            ElseIf $min2 <= $min1 And $min2 <= $min3 Then
                $d[$i][$j] = $min2
            Else
                $d[$i][$j] = $min3
            EndIf
        Next
    Next

    Return $d[StringLen( $a )][StringLen( $b )]
EndFunc

      I write this script to compare to array, well Do you have a better way to do it?

      Hi all, 

      First, I want to give a huge shout-out to the community. I'm completely self-taught, and have never had to actually ask a question before because the forum is that good at answering questions and explaining things. However, I'm kind of stumped here, and I've been stuck on this problem for almost a full day.

      I'm working on a script to populate drafts of deeds at work. I have the main GUI and  a function (ctrl($n) and read()) for adding fields to find and data to replace it with to an array for later use with _word_docfindreplace. All of that works. However, due to the way I have the forms set up, I need to create additional fields and info based on the data that's there. Specifically, if there's only one buyer, I need to add the field [Buyer1&2] and the data in $aArray_Base for [Buyer 1]. I also need to add a field [Buyer 2] and have a blank data set in the next column over in the array, and I need to do the same for the Seller. To this end, the function parties() sets boolean variables $2buyers and $2sellers accordingly. Then, I have buyers() and sellers() to populate the data. 

      The problem that I'm running into is that each function works... when ONLY the buyer 1 name field is filled, and when ONLY the seller 1 field is filled.

      So if I fill Buyer 1 Name and save it, the data is populated correctly. But when I fill Buyer 1 and Seller 1 name, only the buyer 1 data populates correctly. Worse, when I fill several fields, neither populate correctly. I have no idea why this happens. I've added messageboxes to debug throughout the entire process and can't pinpoint what's causing the issue. The entire script is below. The function(s) in question are buyers() and sellers(). Only Sellers() has messageboxes throughout.

      Can someone help walk me through what might be causing this and help me find a solution? Thanks a ton in advance, and sorry for the wall of text.
