Refresh array after one loop

11 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi

I need some help.

I try ping computers from targets.txt (I have computer name in lines) if they ping I want do something and after that remove pc name from targets.txt. It`s working but problem is when I put this inside loop, because I need run script until all computers will not be removed from the list (targets.txt). I don`t know how to "refresh" array :(

Please help :)

#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Local $PC_list = "\targets.txt"
Local $bTargets = FileReadToArray(@ScriptDir& $PC_list)

Do
   _check_ping()
   ;count_lines
   Local $file_count_lines = _FileCountLines(@ScriptDir& $PC_list)
   $i = $file_count_lines
   ConsoleWrite("na liście "&$i & @CRLF)
Until $i = 0
; IF &i = 0 then show MsgBox
MsgBox(1, "xXx", "Finish")

;PING
Func _check_ping()
   For $sPC In $bTargets
   $var = Ping($sPC, 250)
      If $var Then
         ConsoleWrite($sPC &"online"& @CRLF)
         ;Do something

         ;Delete $sPC from targets.txt
         Local $_Array
         _FileReadToArray ( @ScriptDir& "\targets.txt", $_Array )
         $_Array = _DeleteArrayElementWithStringInstr ( $_Array, $sPC )
         _FileWriteFromArray ( @ScriptDir& "\targets.txt", $_Array, 1 )
         Sleep(200)
      Else
         ConsoleWrite($sPC &"offline"& @CRLF)
      EndIf
   Next
EndFunc

;DELETE LINE FROM TXT
Func _DeleteArrayElementWithStringInstr ( $_Array, $_String )
    Local $_Item
    For $_Element In $_Array
        If StringInStr ( $_Element, $_String ) <> 0 Then
            _ArrayDelete ( $_Array, $_Item )
        Else
            $_Item+=1
        EndIf
    Next
    Return ( $_Array )
EndFunc ;==> _DeleteArrayElementWithStringInstr ( )

If you don't really need to destroy your "targets.txt" file, then you could use an array to track what's going on, keeping your file safe instead.

Something like this should work (not tested)

Local $PC_list = "\targets.txt"
Local $aTargets = FileReadToArray(@ScriptDir & $PC_list)
If @error Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "Error on reading file.")
    Exit
EndIf

Local $iToBePinged = UBound($aTargets) ; total nr of pc to ping
Local $aIndex[$iToBePinged + 1] = [$iToBePinged] ; counter in element [0]

; initialize index
For $i = 1 To $aIndex[0]
    $aIndex[$i] = $i - 1
Next

Do
    For $i = $aIndex[0] To 1 Step -1 ; scans all remaining pc
        If Ping($aTargets[$aIndex[$i]], 250) Then
            ConsoleWrite($aTargets[$aIndex[$i]] & " online" & @CRLF)
            ; Do something

            ; adjust indexes
            $aIndex[$i] = $aIndex[$aIndex[0]]
            $aIndex[0] -= 1
        Else
            ; ConsoleWrite($aTargets[$aIndex[$i]] & " offline" & @CRLF)

        EndIf
    Next
Until Not $aIndex[0]

MsgBox(0, "xXx", "Finish")

But this work wery unstable. The loop works, after a few runs exit code. No specific error.

Any ideas how to improve?

 

This is all code, maybe somebody need this.

Script read information about configuration from computers in network.

 

P.S.

I somebody know how to get display resolution (from remote computer) plz give me know :)

Help me plz.

I do something like that, its stable but one problem, its not delete last row and loop never end.

I need loop working until last localization answer for ping.

#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>


For $i = 0 to _FileCountLines(@ScriptDir& "\targets.txt")
   Dim $array = FileReadToArray(@ScriptDir& "\targets.txt")
   For $i = UBound($array) -1 To 0 Step -1
      Sleep(200)
      If Ping($array[$i], 250) Then
         ;ONLINE
         ConsoleWrite($array[$i] & "online" & @CRLF)
         Sleep(200)
         $iIndex = _ArraySearch($array, $array[$i], 1, 0, 0, 1)
         Sleep(200)
         ; And if found - delete
         If Not @error Then
             _ArrayDelete($array, $iIndex)
          EndIf
          Sleep(200)
          _FileWriteFromArray(@ScriptDir& "\targets.txt", $array, 1)
      Else
         ;OFFLINE
         ConsoleWrite($array[$i] & "offline" & @CRLF)
         Sleep(200)
      EndIf
   Next
Next

Maybe this?

#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
Dim $array = FileReadToArray(@ScriptDir & "\targets.txt")
For $i = UBound($array) - 1 To 0 Step -1
    Sleep(200)
    If Ping($array[$i], 250) Then
        ;ONLINE
        ConsoleWrite($array[$i] & "online" & @CRLF)
        Sleep(200)
        ; And if found - delete
        If Not @error Then
            _ArrayDelete($array, $i)
        EndIf
        Sleep(200)
    Else
        ;OFFLINE
        ConsoleWrite($array[$i] & "offline" & @CRLF)
        Sleep(200)
    EndIf
Next
_FileWriteFromArray(@ScriptDir & "\targets.txt", $array)

In your script you were reusing the $i variable in the second loop, so the value never gets updated for the first loop.

Thx, but  loop end when check all locations from list.

I need loop to working untill  locations respond successfully to ping.

If  location is offline loop should check another locations and after finish, check again locations which were offline.

In brief: I want send something for this locations, but if they offline this aplications should wait until they will be online.

Sorry for my english.

Try this.

#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
Dim $array = FileReadToArray(@ScriptDir & "\targets.txt")
Global $ReadError = @error
While $ReadError = 0
    For $i = UBound($array) - 1 To 0 Step -1
        Sleep(200)
        If Ping($array[$i], 250) Then
            ;ONLINE
            ConsoleWrite($array[$i] & "online" & @CRLF)
            Sleep(200)
            ; And if found - delete
            If Not @error Then
                _ArrayDelete($array, $i)
            EndIf
            Sleep(200)
        Else
            ;OFFLINE
            ConsoleWrite($array[$i] & "offline" & @CRLF)
            Sleep(200)
        EndIf
    Next
    If UBound($array) > 0 Then
        _FileWriteFromArray(@ScriptDir & "\targets.txt", $array)
    Else
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
    $array = FileReadToArray(@ScriptDir & "\targets.txt")
    $ReadError = @error
WEnd

If FileReadToArray reads an empty file it will set the @error macro and the While loop will end. If the $array array is empty, it exits the loop as well, which would only happen if all the Pings return as valid.

harvester2001,

Another way to look at the problem.  The loop is controlled by a switch and the source file is not altered.

#include <array.au3>
#include <date.au3>

Local $aPingList = StringSplit(FileRead(@ScriptDir & '\targets.txt'), @CRLF, 3), $again = True

While $again

    $again = False

    For $1 = 0 To UBound($aPingList) - 1

        If $aPingList[$1] = '' Then ContinueLoop
        Ping($aPingList[$1], 250)
        If @error Then
            ConsoleWrite('!  ' & StringFormat('%10s %30s was not reachable', _Now(), $aPingList[$1]) & @CRLF)
            $again = True ; loop again
        Else
            ConsoleWrite('>  ' & StringFormat('%10s %30s was     reachable', _Now(), $aPingList[$1]) & @CRLF)
            ;
            ; go do your other stuff
            ;
            $aPingList[$1] = '' ;   clear entry
        EndIf

    Next
WEnd

      So I have a loop that keeps reading data from an array and searching it for the same value. If the value is no there it does work then adds the value to the array to prevent it from doing the same work.
      If _ArraySearch($ID,$filearray[$i]) = -1 Then Work.... _ArrayAdd($ID,$filearray[$i]) EndIf This is in a for loop hence $i
      So what is happening is the code works great for several hours. After a period of time _ArraySearch($ID,$filearray[$i]) will result in -1 even if $ID = $filearray. So it ready as if there is no data in the array. Anyone have this problem? 
       
      Also I am just running in using F5 not compiling it and running it if that makes a difference.

      I am reading a CSV file which is tab seperated as below.
      Local $aArray = FileReadToArray($file) And now, I am splitting this main array record wise so that Array contains internally another arrow to represent each row.
      For $i = 0 to (UBound($aArray) - 1) ;MsgBox(0,"",$aArray[$i]) $aArray[$i] = StringSplit(StringStripCR($aArray[$i]), Chr(9),2);Chr(9) for tab ;_ArrayDisplay($aArray[$i]) Next Afther that, _ArrayDIsplay is able to see the individual internal arrays.
      _ArrayDisplay($aArray[1]) But If I try to access the individual element of it as below.It is not showing any result.
      MsgBox(0,"",$aArray[1][1]) Any suggestion, below is the sample csv file.

      Need some help understanding why the ConsoleWrite works inside 2nd For loop but not out side. Between Audit Wiki, Help file , Forum searching (lots of code reading), and YouTube ( shout out to TutsTeach), I have not been able to find the reason why.
