BIG String to Array

12 posts in this topic

Greetings,

I am getting the "RawData" return from FastFind's "FFGetRawData" function and then attempting to make it into an array.

What I have here does the job as it should but it is a slow process. I feel I may be overlooking a more effecient way to handle this matter. In the end ( in an ideal situation ) I'd like to end up with a 2D array with 580 col and 375 rows. Currently it's just a 1D array as I am still trying to get my head around how to make it into a 2D. BUT... My question is this ...

Is there a better way to handle what I am trying to do? 

Func trimmer ()
    Local $i = 0 ;The "Counter"
    Local $WorkAreaLength = StringLen ($WorkAreaData) ;Get the length of the string
    ConsoleWrite ("WorkAreaLegnth="&$WorkAreaLength&@CR)
    Local $iWorkAreaLengthCount = $WorkAreaLength / 8 ;How many segments of 8 can we make? Use this for the counter later on
    ConsoleWrite ("WorkArealengthCount="&$iWorkAreaLengthCount&@CR) 
    Local $sPiece = 0 ; The string segment holder
    Global $aWorkArea ; The array to write to
        Do
            $sPiece = StringLeft ($WorkAreaData, 8) ; Grab the first 8 characters and put them into $sPiece
            _ArrayAdd ($aWorkArea, $sPiece) ; Put what $sPiece is into the array
            StringTrimLeft ($WorkAreaData, 8) ;Trim off the first 8 characters that were just copied

            $i = $i + 1 ;Count up 1
            ConsoleWrite ($i&@CR)
        Until $i >= $iWorkAreaLengthCount ; Keep going until $i >= $iWorkAreaLengthCount

    ConsoleWrite ("Done"&@CR)
    Local $sFile = FileOpen ("main.txt");Open the text file
    _FileWriteFromArray ($sFile , $aWorkArea);Write the array to the text file
    FileClose ($sFile); Close the text file
EndFunc

 

A little secondary problem, that isn't throwing any errors to speak of, is the file is never written to. It remains blank even though it is in the same directory as the script and the script isn't responding with any errors. This isn't my main focus though as it just lets me see what the array is rather than using the console which can be a little cramped at times.

Any advise would be appreciated, thank you!

$sPiece = StringLeft ($WorkAreaData, +8)

Hi @Reizvoller

I don't know how BIG could be your string but sometimes we just over complicate things.

Like I see it to save your string to an Array 1D or 2D you need to split that string, or you need some kind of delimiter.
So you split your string on segments of 8 character each one, because you don't have any other way to split your string? no delimiters? spaces? anything?

Anyways in order to make this more efficient what I would probably do is to avoid another string operation:

StringTrimLeft ($WorkAreaData, 8)

Try to avoid this operation, maybe if you sum first position to second one?

$sPiece = StringLeft ($WorkAreaData, 8)

Maybe If $i >= 1 Then

$sPiece = StringLeft ($WorkAreaData, +8)

I mean increment StringLeft position by 8 because is always your increment factor, on each loop cicle you could save next StringLeft left position and use that.

I thinks avoiding StringTrimLeft will give you better performance.

Kind Regards
Alien.

Greetings,

Fantastic idea regarding not doing the "StringTrim" and the subsequent +8 on the StringLeft.

Truth be told I am starting to feel like I am attempting to do something I shouldn't.

The string is a bunch of Hexadecimal color values all in a line without any spaces further than a "00" but some colors have "00" in them hence me not using it as a delimiter for this process.

The string is a bit over 1.7million characters which is off of about 217500 pixel values.

This process is to hunt through a work area, see if there is something, then continue along.

After putting more thought into it I feel I need to find another method to tackle my goal but this was great learning along the way! :)

Anyways if this are Hexadecimal color values always with a fixed length for example 4 characters you could take a high multiple of 4.

For example 400 this will make each array element store 100 colors values and this will make the arrays also shorten for parsing in the next stage of your code.

Kind Regards
Alien.

Perhaps this helps:

#include <Array.au3>
Local $aArray = _StringEqualSplit("12345678910123456789101234567890", 8)
_ArrayDisplay($aArray)

Func _StringEqualSplit($sString, $iNumChars)
    If Not IsString($sString) Or $sString = "" Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    If Not IsInt($iNumChars) Or $iNumChars < 1 Then Return SetError(2, 0, 0)
    Return StringRegExp($sString, "(?s).{1," & $iNumChars & "}", 3)
EndFunc

$file=fileopen ("file.txt",1)

 

Your file is opening in read only mode

 

Edit.  I believe you could use 0x as delimiter then just add it back later

2d array simple example 

Dim $array[10][10]

For $col=0 to ubound($array,2)-1
For $row=0 to ubound($array1)-1
$array[$row][$col]
MsgBox("","", $$array[$row][$col])
;this basically just shuffle through the array and display the results

This funcs do the job:

Func _FFArrayFromRawData($String, $iRows = 0, $iCols = 0)
    #cs
        _FFArrayFromRawData($String, [$iRows = 0, [$iCols = 0]])
        Params:     $String     the String with raw pixel data as returned from _FFArrayFromRawData

        $iCols      number of Cols in resulting array OPTIONAL
        possible
        Returns:    $aResult[$iPixelCount+1]    $iRows and $iCols = 0
        so all Pixels in a 1D array

i already posted you the link to script using this:

#include "FastFind.au3"
#include <Array.au3>

$tdStart = TimerInit()
FFSnapShot(1, 1, 100, 100, 1)
ConsoleWrite('SnapShot after '&TimerDiff($tdStart)&' ms returned with: '  & @error & @CRLF)
Local $sData = FFGetRawData(1)
ConsoleWrite('GetRawData: ' & @error & @CRLF)
Local $aPixels = _FFArrayFromRawData($sData, 100, 100)
If @extended=2 Then
    $iPixelCount=UBound($aPixels,1)*UBound($aPixels,1)
Else
    $iPixelCount=UBound($aPixels)
EndIf

ConsoleWrite('ArrayFromRawData: ' & @error & @TAB & @extended & @TAB & TimerDiff($tdStart) & ' ms'& @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite('Average Time: ' & TimerDiff($tdStart) / $iPixelCount &'ms Pixels: ' & $iPixelCount & @CRLF)
_ArrayDisplay($aPixels)

Without the _ArrayDisplay its very fast. Using smaller workarea will save absolut time.

This is an interesting approach! I am going to try it right away, even if it is just for the learning experience :)

I KNEW I was over looking something super simple with the FileWrite! I was staring at it going "There has gotta be a setting I am just not even thinking of..." Thank you! 

As for using 0x , I actually don't think that the function FFGetRawData throws out the 0x too or else this would be ideal.

I need to save CodeBot to my favorites , you have referenced it before and it seems like a valuable source of data. Your solution is very intricuit and will take a little time for me to review and employ for myself. Thank you for the information!

<><><>

So many replies to this little question of mine, I really apreciate every moment that was put into writing back to me. Thank you all very much! I am headed out of the office for the weekend but will be back on this problem ( and probably this forum ) come Monday :)

Thank you again!~

It's a String each Pixel is represented in BGRA-Format 2 chars for Blue, 2 chars for green, 2 chars for red and 2 chars for the alphachannel

It's not mine. I had a small look in FastFind's helpfile and i think there a better solutions possible than creating a array and search with AutoItscript for a pixel with specific color. Using the wrapped DLL-calls like FFGetPixel, FFNearestPixel, FFBestSpot should be perfomater you don't need the 2 Steps:

  • FFGetRawData
  • creating a array from resultstring for easier searching

and then searching in the array. If knowing the coords for a pixel you want know the colour use FFGetPixel. If you want the nearest pixel from a given coordinate in defined colour (shadevariantions are possible) user FFNearesPixel. For a Spot of Pixels you can use FFBestSpot, FFNearestSpot.

As this functions are wrapped DLL-calls for the FF.DLL it's much faster than the best optimized AutoIt code. FF.au3 is very complex and so it needs time to explore all the possiblilies. But this time is not wasted for you, not using a FF'-func when it's possible is wasted time. Only in case you know how to include and execute ASM-routines in autoit (I don't) you can build faster algorithm than the FF-funcs.

Howdy!

I applied the idea of  using just PixelSearch for another process for the same web interface. Trouble is, with this next step, there are many items that will have the color I am looking for and the location is going to change. This problem is actually why I am making this little script because this particular task is very cumbersome.

The entire thing, the work space,  renders as a big BMP and is not searchable as text. 

 

So the strategy was this ...

  1. Get reference RAW data for the areas of interest that I want to automatically navigate to/find
    1. Get a snapShot of the wanted area, convert to RAW, save on a .txt
  2. Open the work area
  3. Snap shot work area
  4. Search for the reference RAW in the WorkArea SnapShot RAW
  5. Scroll down x units 
  6. Go back to step 2

It isn't the most elegant of solutions but with the interface I have, it's really my only option ( that I can see at the moment. )

I suppose the better way would be to find a more finite way to specify the target areas I am wanting the script to find. Like a 1 pixel tall by 100 pixels wide rather than an area of 300x500 pixels.

I am going to see about finding other ways to search through this thing in the meantime. I think that my described method is too lengthy of a process to really be useful when compared against just manual searching.

You don't need FFGetRawData, FFGetPixel searches in SnapShot too and this much faster. I think (not tested, i am no gamer or gamebotter) that building 2DArray with FFGetPixel is Faster than the way Hairy Botter showed.

Quick note this is NOT for a game in any capacity! 

But your information is quite useful and will be tested once I get the chance, thank you.

      Haven't had much time to code recently. However the following thread inspired me.
      The debate about linear, parallel and binary search methods was rather interesting and, in an attempt to be diplomatic, I decided to combine @jchd's suggestion with @LarsJ's binary search example. I decided that the binary search algorithm required modification to make it more linear. As usual, 'if you invent something, it probably already exists and if it already exists, it exists for a reason'. My first attempt was not all that good. The code worked but was really a mess. I blame peer pressure (to post an example of a parallel search method).  I will delete that old code in due course.
      With a little memory jogging and a glance at the help file, the solution turned out to be quite easy: I just needed a better understanding of Euler. Further modification will be needed to work with more complicated unicode strings. The output could be returned as an array or a delimitered string. I'm not so interested in those details. I'm just going to post the algorithm for now and anyone, who wants to, can modify it to suit their needs. Both arrays must contain at least 1 element.
      Local $aFoo = [0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,19,20,23,24,26,30,35,39,40,41] Local $aBar = [0,1,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,17,18,19,21,24,25,26,27,34,35,38,40] ParallelExponetialSearch($aFoo, $aBar) ; Compares two lists - returning positive matches.

      Hi all,
      I got this code and would like to be able to change Baud Rate and instead of sending character by character i would like to be able (if possible) to send whole string. But i don't know how to change it.

      To execute this i am just calling SendData("FileName", int) in "main" script.

      Afternoon!
      I have a requirement to return both a string and an array from a function so as a result I put them both into an array and returned that.  I can access them in their entirety after returning them but then I can't seem to access the array elements after this.  Should I be able to or is there a prettier way?
      #include <Array.au3> ;Memory info returned as a string and an array $memoryInfo = _getMemoryInfo() msgbox(0,"Memory Info",$memoryInfo[0]) _ArrayDisplay($memoryInfo[1],"Memory as an Array") Local $newArray[7] $memoryInfo[1] = $newArray msgbox(0,"Test element",$newArray[0]) _ArrayDisplay($newArray) Func _getMemoryInfo() Local $newArray[7] Local $array = MemGetStats() $newArray[0] = $array[0] ;% of memory in use $newArray[1] = Round($array[1]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Total physical RAM $newArray[2] = Round($array[2]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Availaible physical RAM $newArray[3] = Round($array[3]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Total pagefile $newArray[4] = Round($array[4]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Available pagefile $newArray[5] = Round($array[5]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Total virtual $newArray[6] = Round($array[6]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Available virtual $memoryUsage = $newArray[1] - $newarray[2] $pagefileUsage = $newArray[3] - $newarray[4] ;Output/Return Local $returnArray[2] $returnArray[0] = "Memory: " & $memoryUsage & " GB/" & $newArray[1] & " GB " & @CRLF & "Pagefile: " & $pagefileUsage & " GB/" & $newArray[3] & " GB " $returnArray[1] = $newArray return $returnArray EndFunc A bit messy but hopefully it's understandable what I'm trying to achieve.
      Thanks!

      I am having difficulties getting updated results from GUICtrlCreateInput. I wrote a small script to demonstrate what I am trying to do.
      This script reads a text file into an array and displays the Name and Number from the text file.
      The user can check a name and change the number, and the results are displayed in _ArrayDisplay.
      Only the Checked names are displayed in their original position. This is necessary for future
      plumbing.
      The problem with this script is the original number is returned, not the changed number. I cannot
      figure out how to get the updated number to be displayed.

      * This is a dummy file with a Name and Number * The only purpose of this file is to read the updated Number. Name:Taggart Number:916 Name:Mongo Number:90 Name:Hedley Lamarr Number:22 Name:Bart Number:9999 Name:The Waco Kid Number:2244 If I change the number, the original number is displayed at the end, not the updated/modified number. I need the modified number to be displayed.
      Thanks in advance for any assistance!
