merging x2 text files with numbers

Recommended Posts

hi all i got 3 files


file 1 contains --> 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10

file 2 contains --> 2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16

file 3 contains --> 2,8,10,20,21,22,23


how can i merge all 3 and have a messagebox display 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,12,14,16,20,21,22,23 without of course displaying the duplicate numbers amongst the files 2 or 3 times i just cant figure it out, all i got so far was to get 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,2,8,10,20,21,22,23

but how do i mix all 3 of them without displaying the same numbers 2-3 times ? cheers

You really should stick to one topic, as this one is really just a continuation of your earlier one, and the solution is along the lines of a similar method for removing duplicates.

Th only thing not mentioned in the previous topics is the final sorting  :)

#Include <Array.au3>

Local $txt = "3" &@crlf& "1" &@crlf& "2" &@crlf& "3 " &@crlf& "4" &@crlf& "41" &@crlf& "42" &@crlf& "3" &@crlf& "5" &@crlf& "6" &@crlf& "42"

;Local $txt = FileRead("1.txt") & @crlf & FileRead("2.txt") & @crlf & FileRead("3.txt")

Local $uniq = StringRegExp($txt, "(?s)\b(\d+)\b(?!.*\b\1\b)", 3)

; sorting numeric
Local $temp, $loop = 1
While $loop 
    $loop = 0
    For $i = 1 To UBound($uniq) - 1
        If Number($uniq[$i]) < Number($uniq[$i-1]) Then  ; sort ascending
            $temp = $uniq[$i]
            $uniq[$i] = $uniq[$i-1]
            $uniq[$i-1] = $temp
            $loop = 1
Msgbox(0,"", _ArrayToString($uniq, ", ") )
