Help with _ArraySearch

Recommended Posts


Could someone show me what I am doing wrong?   I write a file to an array,  I split the array. This is working correctly but what I am trying to do is loop thru each array created by the split and search for a string. If the string is found in that array write that array to a file.   Here is what I have that is not working.  Nothing is getting written to the file.

#include <file.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <String.au3>
#include <StringConstants.au3>
#include <Date.au3>

Local $sXDate = StringRegExpReplace(_DateAdd("d", 0, _NowCalcDate()), '\d\d(\d\d).(\d\d).(\d\d)','$2$3$1') ; Format = MMDDYY

$sFilePath = "X:\DEMOS\PTR\Temp\SVH_Charges_"&$sXDate&".txt"

$sFileOpen = FileOpen($sFilePath, $FO_READ)
Local $sText = FileRead($sFileOpen)
Local $sArray = StringSplit($sText, '', $STR_ENTIRESPLIT)

$sFileCreate = _FileCreate("X:\DEMOS\PTR\Temp\SVH_Charges_Echo"&$sXDate&".txt")
FileOpen($sFileCreate, $FO_APPEND)

$search = "Echocardiogram"
For $i = 1 To $sArray[0] ; Loop through the array returned by StringSplit.
    $Found = _ArraySearch($sArray[$i], $search)
   If $Found = $search Then

    _FileWriteFromArray("X:\DEMOS\PTR\Temp\SVH_Charges_Echo"&$sXDate&".txt", $sArray[$i])

Thank you

I can see a couple of issues.

One, you open the file for read, but never close it after reading it.

Two, you create the file, but don't check to see if the file is created successfully.

Third, you use FileOpen to append to the file, but you don't use the returned file handle for anything, so that is probably locking the file as well.

Fourth, $sArray[$i] isn't an array, it's an element OF the array, so the _ArraySearch and _FileWriteFromArray both won't work on a string.

Other than those obvious errors, without seeing a sample of what the text file looks like, there's no way to tell what's going where.

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.
