at first: i'm new here, so please forgive me my mistakes, and show them to me, just that i can learn to do better in the future.
Now to my Problem: i have an excel sheet, where i just need some columns for further actions, but i have no idea how to add single columns to a new array.
I found the following code(the one i just added as a file) from 'water' in this forum, but i wont get how i could add multiple columns into a new array.
The biggest problem in my situation is that i dont know the count of the rows i need for the array, i just got a fix number of rows, which is 4.
Hope you can help me, and sry again for this 'unlucky illustration'.
btw: how can i add code shown as code here, instead of posting it as a attached file?.
I'm too stupid to see my mistake:
To investigate the internal "dictionary" of TIFF files I'd like to read in the files in binary mode and to check, if there are more than one pages "in" this TIFF.
Notepad++, "View as Hex" is presenting the first bytes as "49 49 2a 20 08 20 20 20 12" for the TIF attached to this posting
The "TIFF Header Format" is easy:
Offset 00h, 2 Byte = Byte Order, "II"=intel, "MM"=motorola. (I = 0x49)
Offset 02h, 2 Byte = Version Nr.
Offset 04h, 4 Byte = pointer to first IFD entry

Howto read and analyse the binary content correctly? This is my messy, not operational code:
$sampleTiff="H:\daten\tif\11\11\111111.TIF" $h=FileOpen($sampleTiff,16) $content=FileRead($h) ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $content = ' & $content & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console FileClose($h) $type=VarGetType($content) ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $type = ' & $type & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console $ToString=BinaryToString($content) ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $ToString = ' & $ToString & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & @CRLF) $content=StringTrimLeft($content,2) ; cut off the leading "0x" ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $content = ' & $content & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console for $i = 1 to 8 step 8 $next=StringMid($content,$i,2) ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $next = ' & $next & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console $Chr=BinaryToString($next) ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $Chr = ' & $Chr & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & "---" & @CRLF) Next Regards, Rudi.
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, $aBar) ; Compares two lists - returning positive matches. Each input array must be unique (individually) and in alphabetical order. Func ParallelExponetialSearch($aFoo, $aBar) Local $sFind, _ $iMin_F = -1, $iMax_F = UBound($aFoo) -1, $Lo_F = $iMin_F, $Hi_F, _ $iMin_B = -1, $iMax_B = UBound($aBar) -1, $Lo_B = $iMin_B, $Hi_B While $iMin_F < $iMax_F And $iMin_B < $iMax_B ; Toggle Arrays - Which array has most untested elements? This is the one we want to search next, ; so we can bypass more comparisons because (in theory) mismatches have a greater chance of being skipped.

I believe it deserved a thread of its own!
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) _ArrayDisplay($memoryInfo,"Memory as an Array") Local $newArray $memoryInfo = $newArray msgbox(0,"Test element",$newArray) _ArrayDisplay($newArray) Func _getMemoryInfo() Local $newArray Local $array = MemGetStats() $newArray = $array ;% of memory in use $newArray = Round($array/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Total physical RAM $newArray = Round($array/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Availaible physical RAM $newArray = Round($array/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Total pagefile $newArray = Round($array/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Available pagefile $newArray = Round($array/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Total virtual $newArray = Round($array/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Available virtual $memoryUsage = $newArray - $newarray $pagefileUsage = $newArray - $newarray ;Output/Return Local $returnArray $returnArray = "Memory: " & $memoryUsage & " GB/" & $newArray & " GB " & @CRLF & "Pagefile: " & $pagefileUsage & " GB/" & $newArray & " GB " $returnArray = $newArray return $returnArray EndFunc A bit messy but hopefully it's understandable what I'm trying to achieve.
We can send mails using SMTP settings in AutoIT.
But is there anyway to read the mails and start the program if we get the mail with the particular subject.
I mean, I have automated a build process and it starts from windows task scheduler my autoit program at morning 3 AM.
If it fails in the middle, it will be sent to the dev team guys with the logs as attachment.
Then I am connecting manually to the remote machine to trigger the task again.
Is there anyway to start this task once I receive a mail with the specific subject like "start the build" automatically.
