arranging text in a file

2 posts in this topic

#Include <File.au3>
#Include <Array.au3>
$FileList=_FileListToArray(@ScriptDir)
$sFile = @ScriptDir & "\Test.txt"

If @Error=1 Then
    MsgBox (0,"","No Files\Folders Found.")
    Exit
EndIf

_FileWriteFromArray("test.txt", $FileList)
Run("notepad.exe " & $sFile)

What I would like to do is get a better grasp of autoit so I thought I'd start with some file sorting. At the moment I can get an array with all the files in a particular directory listed in it. What I would like to do now is sort those files in two different ways. One is alphabetically and the other is if there is a specific character(s) in the files name.

If someone could point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it.


The glass is neither half empty nor half full, it is simply twice as big as it needs to be.

1. _ArraySort function.

2. Example:

#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

$aFileList = _FileListToArray(@ScriptDir)
If @error Then
    MsgBox(0, "", "No Files\Folders Found.")
    Exit
EndIf

;_ArraySort($aFileList, 1, 1)

_ArraySortEx($aFileList, "txt") ;Sort by txt characters

_ArrayDisplay($aFileList)

Func _ArraySortEx(ByRef $array, $sPattern)
    Local $iUbound = UBound($array)
    Local $sTemp, $aTemp, $i
    
    For $i = 1 To $iUbound - 1
        If StringInStr($array[$i], $sPattern) Then
            $sTemp &= $array[$i] & @LF
            $array[$i] = 0
        EndIf
    Next
    
    For $i = 1 To $iUbound - 1
        If $array[$i] Then $sTemp &= $array[$i] & @LF
    Next
    
    $array = StringSplit($sTemp, @LF)
    $array[0] = $array[0] - 1
    ReDim $array[$array[0] + 1]
EndFunc
