Efficient way to declare variables = array items?

24 posts in this topic

With the help of experts on this forum, I'm putting together a script that reads a configuration file and copies lines from it for use in another file. The file includes lines like this:

FONT = CONSOLA
rem LINS = 25

etc.

I've written a script to extract those lines that aren't REMmed out at the start, and I wonder if there's a more efficient way to accomplish the assignment of variables that you'll see in a long list near the end of the script:

$vdosroot = "f:\users\edward\vdoswp"
$vdosdir = $vdosroot & "\programs"
$Source = $vdosroot & "\51VDMConfig\config.txt"

$sText = FileRead($Source)

Local $aArray[22] = ["scale", "window", "low", "xmem", "colors", "mouse", "lins", _
                    "cols", "title", "frame", "timeout", "font", "wp", "euro", _
                    "lpt1", "lpt2", "lpt3", "lpt4", "lpt5", "lpt6", "lpt7", "lpt8"]

Local $varArray[22]

For $i = 0 to UBound($aArray) -1 Step 1
    $varArray[$i] = GetLine($aArray[$i])
Next

$scale = $varArray[0]
$window = $varArray[1]
$low = $varArray[2]
$xmem = $varArray[3]
$colors = $varArray[4]
$mouse = $varArray[5]
$lins = $varArray[6]
$cols = $varArray[7]
$title = $varArray[8]
$frame = $varArray[9]
$timeout = $varArray[10]
$font = $varArray[11]
$wp =   $varArray[12]
$euro = $varArray[13]
$lpt1 = $varArray[14]
$lpt2 = $varArray[15]
$lpt3 = $varArray[16]
$lpt4 = $varArray[17]
$lpt5 = $varArray[18]
$lpt6 = $varArray[19]
$lpt7 = $varArray[20]
$lpt8 = $varArray[21]

; MsgBox(0,'', $lpt1)

Func GetLine($setting)
    $aFound = StringRegExp($sText, "(?im)^\s*" & $setting & "\s*.*$", 3)
    If @error Then
        $aFound = 0
    Else
        $aFound = $aFound[0]
    EndIf
    Return $aFound
EndFunc   ;==>GetLine

I'd like to be able to save some time and make the script easier to maintain, and would be grateful for any advice.

emendelson,

I take it you are intending to use those variables later in the script - so why not just leave them within the array and reference them directly when needed?

Well (mild slap on forehead) of course you're right - that would definitely work. The reason I wanted to give them descriptive names is that it would make them a lot easier to manage. Also, at some point in the future, I'll offer a GUI for changing the values, and descriptively-named variables would also make it easier to keep track of which ones take strings, which ones take integers, which are boolean, etc. But, as you say, this is not necessary at all.

Do a search for Scripting Dictionary, which is similar to the beta feature of Maps. It's a way of giving the elements of a 1D array a name instead of a number.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Thank you - I think that's what I'm looking for, though it's going to take some concentration to figure out how to make it work. I think the sample here points in the direction I need - does that look right?

This is very interesting, BetaLeaf. The file I want to read is a unix-style configuration file (lots of REM explanations and  a few SETTING = VALUE lines), and your code gives me lots of ideas that I think I can use. Thank you!

You could also use Enumerations:

Local Enum $eScale, $eWindow, $eLow, $eXmem, $eColors ; $eScale = 0, $eWindow = 1, etc

$varArray[$eScale]
$varArray[$eWindow]
$varArray[$eLow]
$varArray[$eXmem]
$varArray[$eColors]

emendelson,

I tend to do as dmob suggests - Enums are very useful (and rather underused) and if execution time is critical you can very easily replace them with their numeric value before compiling.

Enums are exactly what I was looking for, and I didn't know until now that they exist (though I've been using AutoIt for a dozen years...). Thank you for telling me about this.

emendelson,

A common complaint. Although there is an example showing the usage of Enums as array indices in the Help file, I might well add an additional remark highlighting their utility in this regard.

Edit: And done.

The example for Enum demonstrates its usage without over complication.

How should Enums be passed into functions?  I've been creating Enums that are used in functions globally.  I hesitate to declare multiple local Enums and update them all.

Edit: Enums used for array index reference.

You can look in my UDF to see how I do that:

 

for example"
using ENUMs/Const in Function declaration:

...
Func _XML_TransformNode($sXML_FileFullPath, $sXSL_FileFullPath, $sHTML_FileFullPath, $iEncoding = $FO_UTF8_NOBOM)
....

 

You can also check $__g_eARRAY_ATTR_* and $__g_eARRAY_NODE_*


or in my:

Check for:    $ADO_RS_ARRAY_*

....
        Else
            ReDim $aResult[$ADO_RS_ARRAY_ENUMCOUNTR]
            Local $aFiledNames_Temp[$iColumns_count]

            For $iCol_idx = 0 To $iColumns_count - 1 ;get the column names and put into 0 array element
                $aFiledNames_Temp[$iCol_idx] = $oRecordset.Fields($iCol_idx).Name
            Next
            $aResult[$ADO_RS_ARRAY_GUID] = $ADO_RS_GUID
            $aResult[$ADO_RS_ARRAY_FIELDNAMES] = $aFiledNames_Temp
            $aResult[$ADO_RS_ARRAY_RSCONTENT] = $aRecordset_GetRowsResult
            Return SetError($ADO_ERR_SUCCESS, $iRows_count, $aResult)
        EndIf
....

Or in my:

first example:

$oQP.SetOrigin($__eQPDF_SORIGIN_TopLeft);
        $oQP.SetMeasurementUnits($__eQPDF_MUNITS_Milimeters)

second example:

check for : $__eQPDF_SetupCustomPrinter_*

 

EDIT:
also:

 

Local $aPDFCreator_New_Config[$g__ePDFCreator_CONFIG_COUNTER]
        With $g__oPDFCreator
            $aPDFCreator_New_Config[$g__ePDFCreator_CONFIG_Visible] = False ; Hide PDFCreator Console/GUI
            $aPDFCreator_New_Config[$g__ePDFCreator_CONFIG_DefaultPrinter] = 'PDFCreator' ; Set PDFCreator as Default Printer
            $aPDFCreator_New_Config[$g__ePDFCreator_CONFIG_PrinterStop] = True ; STOP PDFCreator Printer
            $aPDFCreator_New_Config[$g__ePDFCreator_CONFIG_UseAutoSave] = 1 ; Set PDFCreator to AutoSave file
            $aPDFCreator_New_Config[$g__ePDFCreator_CONFIG_UseAutoSaveDirectory] = 1 ; Use PDFCreator with AutoSave
            $aPDFCreator_New_Config[$g__ePDFCreator_CONFIG_AutoSaveDirectory] = $sAutoSaveDirectory ; Set AutoSave Directory
            $aPDFCreator_New_Config[$g__ePDFCreator_CONFIG_AutoSaveFilename] = $sAutoSaveFileName ; Set AutoSave FileName
            $aPDFCreator_New_Config[$g__ePDFCreator_CONFIG_AutoSaveFormat] = $g_ePDFCreator_Format_PDF ; Set AutoSave Document Type
        EndWith

 

btw.

this quick review shows to me that there is coming time to rewrite/refactoring some of my old UDF :)

mLipok,

Dokładnie.

Every time you look at old code you see ways you could have made it more efficient, cleaner, better. I remember when I rewrote my own version of the Abbreviation and CallTip Managers so Jos could add them to SciTEConfig - embarrassing is not the word.....

I think it was some time ago, because recently when I checked Abbreviation Manager, I noticed that it was already a bit old style, and I know now you write programs differently.
