I was pondering over a question with regards to the speeds of reading something and did not see this kind of question in a forum search.
The question: What is (technically) faster? Multiple reads from the same 3d array cell, or only once make a 'temp' variable from that cell and read the value from this? I don't know if either has any real impact at all anyway, but just wanted to ask anyway. :-)
There may be a difference if the value holds an integer or a string (or something else) but in my case, is a simple integer.
To hopefully clarify with a small bit of code:
$process = $start - 15 If $xy[$process] <> "x" Then If _ArraySearch($open, $process, 1, $open, 0, 0, 1, 1) <> -1 Then UpdateOpen($xy[$process], $closed) ElseIf $start > 0 And _ArraySearch($closed, $process, 1, $closed, 0, 0, 1, 0) = -1 Then Add_open($start, $closed, $counter, $process) EndIf EndIf You can read from this, that the array $closed is being read 3 times. And this goes on further in the code I did not show.
My question boils down to this, should I make a 'temp' variable to hold that $closed value until the function is done?
It may not have a real impact on my small script, but I really am interested in the answer at least.
Searching inside the forum, I don't succeed to get any explanation about a strange (for me !) phenomena:
Using AutoIt, I have coded a "cortex of neurons Simulator" for which I handle several neurons activity (Action Potential and Postsynaptic Potential) which take a long time, about 20 ms per neuron to be processed. This is why I need a global loop running about 1s for a global cortex of 50 neurons.
But when I move the mouse (in any direction, like rotating above the GUI) the speed of the loop increase significantly : around x8 times more ... !
This happens only if the GUI has the focus. I did a check with the "Windows Task Manager" where I can see the CPU usage changing every time the mouse is moving (growing from 3% to 15%).
I believe to remember some lecture about the influence of the user events regarding the "Application" capability to anticipate user actions by changing it's rate of pooling events, but I'm not sure it was in an AutoIt forum, or maybe it was in an other "developer forum" (like "Code Project", "Stackoverflow" , or ...?
Could somebody help me to understand this behaviour ?
If possible, is there a programmatic method to manage the speed of a simple "For, Next" loop ? I try to change the Application priority (setting to level 4 with "ProcessSetPriority"), but this seems not very efficient ....
FYI: I'm using :

I've these two functions to do a base64 conversation , Is there any way to compare the exact speed of both of them ?

I'm in a bit of a pickle here, the gist of it is that i have one "main" file with ~200k lines, and literally hundreds of other files each ranging from 1k - 100k lines.
I need to go through each of the "other" files and (separately) compare them to the "main" file, and save the differences between the two (no duplicates)
The issue is that each comparison (especially if the "other" file has 50+ k lines) takes over a minute each...
Is there anyway to cut this time down? As far as i know im using the most optimized array difference script
Here's a rough mockup of the script im currently using
note: the main file has all unique lines, and the "other" files wont ever have any lines that *DO NOT* appear in the main file, if that helps

anyone got some experience with the _NetInfo_GetUploadSpeed() from the NetInfo UDF.
Been fiddeling with it for a day now. and i keep getting a return: 1 or return 2, never get my upload in kb/s.
This is the little bit of my script i got:
$s_CountryCode = "NL" $Upload_Speed = _NetInfo_GetUploadSpeed() MsgBox(4096, "Test", $Upload_Speed) What am I not seeing here...
