Stilling stuck with comparing arrays

2 posts in this topic

Question.

I am using _FileReadToArray to ofcourse "read a file to an array", however I noticed that every other slot on the array is empty. I am assuming that those slots appear empty becasue it hold a New Line or Line Break or something other information such as that. This causes problems for me when I try to compare the contents of that array with another.

So I try reading what I get from _FileReadToArray to another array, and in the process I am trying to discarding anything that is not a string .. including all line breaks, new lines etc.

However when I print this array using a loop or using the _ArrayDisplay function I still have those DAMN empty slots in my array. Any thoughts on how I can avoid this?

some of my sample code is below

For $x = 1 to $aRecords[0]
    $aRecords[$x] = StringStripws(StringStripCR($aRecords[$x]), 8)
    If $aRecords[$x] <> "" or $aRecords[$x] <> CHR(10) or $aRecords[$x] <> @LF  Then $Array1[$x-1] = $aRecords[$x]
    $count1 += 1
Next
Redim $Array1[$count1]
    
For $x = 1 to $da_instRecords[0]
    $da_instRecords[$x] = StringStripws(StringStripCR($da_instRecords[$x]), 8)
    If $da_instRecords[$x] <> "" or $da_instRecords[$x] <> CHR(10) or $da_instRecords[$x] <> @LF Then $Array2[$x-1] =  
                $da_instRecords[$x]
    $count2 += 1
Next
Redim $Array2[$count2]

I have also tried

For $x = 1 to $aRecords[0]
    $aRecords[$x] = StringStripws(StringStripCR($aRecords[$x]), 8)
    $test = IsString($aRecords[$x])
    If $test = 1 Then $Array1[$x-1] = $aRecords[$x]
    $count1 += 1
Next
Redim $Array1[$count1]

Any ideas

That doesn't look like it gets rid of 'empty lines'. Maybe it should be more like this

$count1 = 1
For $x = 1 to $aRecords[0]
    $aRecords[$x] = StringStripws(StringStripCR($aRecords[$x]), 8)
    If $aRecords[$x] <> "" and $aRecords[$x] <> @LF  Then 
           $Array1[$count1] = $aRecords[$x]
       $count1 += 1
        endif

Next
Redim $Array1[$count1]
$Array1[0] = $coiunt1 - 1
