Advanced array syntax?

3 posts in this topic

If I have an array called $ARRAY why cant I access the last element using $ARRAY[-1] or the second to last element using $ARRAY[-2]

I have this 2 line code to retrieve the filename from a url but I want to do it in one line:

$A = StringSplit($URL, "/")

$FILENAME = $A[$A[0]]

like

$FILENAME = StringSplit($URL, "/")[-1]

Personally, it wouldn't make much sense to me if it were.

I have this 2 line code to retrieve the filename from a url but I want to do it in one line:

$A = StringSplit($URL, "/")

$FILENAME = $A[$A[0]]

like

$FILENAME = StringSplit($URL, "/")[-1]

What difference does it make if you do it on 1 line or 2?

With a little creativity you could probably solve your issue on your own though?

$URL = "http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?act=Post&CODE=02&f=2&t=48900&qpid=368176"
$FILENAME = _StringSplitEx($URL, '/', 0, -1)
MsgBox(0, '', $FILENAME)

Func _StringSplitEx($sString, $vDelim, $iFlag = 0, $nUBound = -1)
    Local $aSplit = StringSplit($sString, $vDelim, $iFlag)
    If $nUBound > -1 Then Return $aSplit[$nUBound]
    Return $aSplit[($aSplit[0] + $nUBound]

$FILENAME = StringTrimLeft($URL, StringInStr($URL, '/', 0, -1)
MsgBox(0, '', $FILENAME)
