How to ignore remainders in maths

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

G'day everyone

How can I do division and make AutoIt ignore the remainder?

I want to download URLs in the form

http://foo.com/1.html

http://foo.com/31.html

http://foo.com/61.html

http://foo.com/91.html

http://foo.com/121.html etc

I ask the user what the total number is (say, 127). Now I want AutoIt to calculate 127 / 30 (ignore remainder) + 1 = 5, so that I can write a for/next type of script that loops only 5 times (not 127 times):

How can I do this?

I've tried to do it this way:

$j = 0

For $i = 1 to $num

If $j = 30 Then
InetGet ("http://foo.com/" & $i & ".html", "foo" & $i & ".html", 1, 0)
$j = 0
Else
$j = $j + 1
EndIf

Next

but that doesn't seem to work as well as I had hoped (it's very slow).

Any ideas? Thanks!

Samuel
