#include<array.au3>
;Test to find the difference between the 2 arrays

dim $array1[8] = ["a","b","d","f","h","j","k","l"]
dim $array2[13] = ["a","b","c","d","e","f","g","h","i","j","k","l","m"]
dim $array3[ubound($array2)]
dim $total[1]
$a=0


;copy $array2 as i want it kept
for $ct=0 to ubound($array2)-1
    $array3[$ct]=$array2[$ct]
Next

;mark $array3 with a blank array ("") for deletion if found
for $c = 0 to UBound($array2)-1
    $sea=_ArraySearch($array1,$array2[$c],0,0)
    if @error=0 then 
$array3[$c]=""
    EndIf
Next

;delete all "" entries
for $d=0 to UBound($array3)-1
if $array3[$d]<>"" Then
    $total[$a]=$array3[$d]
    $a+=1
if $d<UBound($array3)-1 then ReDim $total[$a+1]
EndIf
Next

;display
_ArrayDisplay($total)

this works for me, anyone know an easier way......

You can copy an array like this

Dim $arrayA[3] = [1,2,3]

$CopyA = $arrayA.

Your function doesn't find the differences between the 2 arrays; it only finds the values in $array2 which are not in $array1 but there could be values in $array1 which are not in $array2. Perhaps that's what you want but I thought that it was worth saying.

Well, to start with, you don't have to copy an array one element at a time. Just "Dim $array3 = $array2" would have done it.

;mark $array3 with a blank array ("") for deletion if found
for $c = 0 to UBound($array2)-1
    $sea=_ArraySearch($array1,$array2[$c],0,0)
    if @error=0 then 
$array3[$c]=""
    EndIf
Next

;delete all "" entries
for $d=0 to UBound($array3)-1
if $array3[$d]<>"" Then
    $total[$a]=$array3[$d]
    $a+=1
if $d<UBound($array3)-1 then ReDim $total[$a+1]
EndIf
Next

;display
_ArrayDisplay($total)

Why change the element and then go back again to delete it? In fact, why work with $array3 at all? Just loop through the first array checking against the second array, and assembling a delimited string of unique values (diffs). One StringSplit() at the end produce your output array.

thansk for the info guys, i have learnt lots....

#include<array.au3>
;Test to find the difference between the 2 arrays

dim $array1[8] = ["a","b","d","f","h","j","k","l"]
dim $array2[13] = ["a","b","c","d","e","f","g","h","i","j","k","l","m"]

;mark $array3 with a blank array ("") for deletion if found
$array3=""
for $c = 0 to UBound($array2)-1
    $sea=_ArraySearch($array1,$array2[$c],0,0)
    if @error=6 then 
$array3&=$array2[$c]&","
    EndIf
Next

;reconstruct & display
$ss=StringSplit($array3,",")
_ArrayDelete($ss,UBound($ss)-1)
_ArrayDisplay($ss)

Your function doesn't find the differences between the 2 arrays; it only finds the values in $array2 which are not in $array1 but there could be values in $array1 which are not in $array2. Perhaps that's what you want but I thought that it was worth saying.

thats the way i wanted it, so thanks for mentionioning. ^_^

$array2 must remain untouched. they are files in a folder to be processed, and $array1 is the ones that have already been processed at a previous time.... so needed to find the ones that havent been done

Ty for all your help tho.... whats the limit for the size of an array.....
