array from text file

9 posts in this topic

i have a script with an array. it has to read the array values from a text file instead of  from within the script. the text file has 58k lines of words from which i need to have as a result only 1 word at a time. so now it has to read from the text file only 1 line at a time and write it as a result to another text file

 

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#include <Date.au3>


Global $result1s[3]=["text1", "text2", "text3"]

_Main()

Func _Main()

    Local $button1
    Local $output, $die, $msg, $results1
    Local $file = FileOpen("test.txt", 1)
    Local $g_idEdit

    GUICreate("test", 600, 200, -1, -1)
    $button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Result", 460, 110, 50, 30)

    $output1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 60, 30, 450, 20, BitOR($ES_CENTER, $ES_READONLY))

    $g_idEdit = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 60, 10, 450, 20, $SS_LEFT)

    $die = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 700, 500, 700, 20, $SS_SUNKEN)
    GUICtrlSetFont($output, 8, 800, "", "Verdana")
    GUISetState()



    ; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
    While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        Select
            Case $msg = $button1

                $results1 = Random(1, 2, 1)
                GUICtrlSetData($output1, $result1s[$results1])
                $read1 = GUICtrlRead($output1)


            FileWriteLine($file, _NowDate()& " " & _nowTime() & " " &GUICtrlRead($g_idEdit))
            FileWriteLine($file, _NowDate()& " " & _nowTime() & " " &$read1)



        EndSelect
        If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>_Main

way1000,

If you want to read a file one line at a time, take a look at FileReadLine.

Also, could you maybe give an example of, like, three lines of input, and the required three lines of output? There may be much better ways to code this kind of thing.

I am intrigued.  58k lines, which you want to parse one word at a time.  Pray tell why?  If this is ten words per line, you are looking at ~580 000 words.

Indeed. It smells like the kind of thing one might be much better off doing through powershell or maybe some Cygwin-based linux magic :) Although of course AutoIt is fine as well.

way1000,

A couple of examples of reading a file to an array using regex.

#include <array.au3>

local $sFile1 = @scriptdir & '\file1.txt'
local $sFile2 = @scriptdir & '\file2.txt'

; one word per line

local $aResult = stringregexp(fileread($sFile1),'.*\R',3)
_arraydisplay($aResult,'One Word per line')


; multiple words per line, varying delimiters (@CRLF, @TAB, space and comma)

local $aResult = stringregexp(fileread($sFile2),'(?m)(\b[^\s,]+\b)',3)
_arraydisplay($aResult,'Multiple Words per line')

In the future it will serve you well to provide examples of your input, your code (or a reproducer) and what you expect as a result.

Good Luck,

kylomas

edit - files used for testing...file1.txt file2.txt

In the interest of completeness a non sre version...

#include <array.au3>
#include <StringConstants.au3>

local $sFile1 = @scriptdir & '\file1.txt'

local $aResult = stringsplit(fileread($sFile1),@CRLF,$STR_ENTIRESPLIT)
_arraydisplay($aResult,'One Word per line')
