StringSplit within Array


Recommended Posts

I have a text file with many lines that needs to be converted to a new format. Each individual line is separated by numerous commas. I want to import the text into an array then use StringSplit and assign the resulting values to variables. This code results in an error: "Array variable has incorrect number of subscript or subscript dimensions range exceeded."

While 1

Global $String = String($aArray[$count])
Global $aDelim = StringSplit($String, ",")
;_ArrayDisplay ($aDelim)
Global $date = $aDelim[1]
Global $No = $aDelim[2]
Global $A = $aDelim[7]
Global $B = $aDelim[4]

So, I tried something similar on a smaller scale. The only difference that I can see is that the test code (below - which works as expected) does not read the original array in a loop. I can see no difference:

#include<array.au3>
#include<MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include<file.au3>
Global $aArray
Global $source = @ScriptDir & "\test.txt"
_FileReadToArray ($source, $aArray)
Global $String = String($aArray[3])

Global $aDelim = StringSplit($String, ",")
;_ArrayDisplay ($aDelim)
Global $one = $aDelim[1]
Global $two = $aDelim[2]
Global $seven = $aDelim[7]
Global $four = $aDelim[4]
MsgBox(" "," ",$seven)

In both cases the _ArrayDisplay shows what I would expect but the code on top gets an error and the one below does not. I would appreciate any insight.

If you set the delimiter parameter in _FileReadToArray then the function does it for you and returns a 2D array:

_FileReadToArray($source, $aArray, Default, ",")

Thanks for the response. I think this is exactly what I need. However, I am inexperienced with 2d Arrays in AutoIT. My experiments with your solution have not been successful yet. Could you be a little more specific about the syntax?

Should the above statement work as written? If so, how do I display the Array to check? For example, the below code runs with no errors but it never displays my Array:

_FileReadtoArray($source, $aArray, Default, ",")
_ArrayDisplay($aArray, "", Default, 1)

I have tried adding $FRTA_ENTIRSPLIT with the same results.

tuffgong,

Splitting the file to an instantly viewable 2D array with _FileReadToArray will only work if all the lines have the same number of delimiters - if this is not the case, then using  $FRTA_INTARRAYS  will need some further work to get the arrays displayed. Could you post a copy of the file in question so that we can see how best to proceed - PM me a copy if you do not want to post it in open forum.
