rant: truewordOffset

2021-04-19 Thread Mark Wieder via use-livecode

I'm also annoyed at truewordOffset.
Consider this:

you can get an offset in truewords (the number of truewords that occur 
before the given argument,


but you can't get an offset *to* a given trueword.

put truewordOffset(tString, tText, tSkip) will give you a value in 
truewords. And you can plug that value into tSkip for the next iteration 
to find the next occurence of the string. But only a string. You can't say


put truewordOffset(trueword tTrueWord, tText, tSkip)

And yes, I've got a one-line workaround for it, but what use is this on 
its own? You can't just say


put truewordOffset("font", tText) into tOffset

because it might encounter "fontTable" first.

I can't come up with a use for truewordOffset the way it currently 
exists, and it isn't used in any of the IDE stacks, so apparently the 
team didn't have a use for it either.

Re: lineOffset wildcard

2021-04-19 Thread Mark Wieder via use-livecode



I'll try benchmarking this against Jacque's suggestion of matchChunk. 
Filter is normally pretty fast, but I'll have to use the regex version, 
and I'm not sure what the speed implications will be.


Benchmark result averages over 10 runs on a 2700-line script:

filter lines of script 2612.6ms
filter script  2572.1ms
matchChunk 2424.3ms

the code:

put "^local.*"&".*" into tRegexString

put matchChunk(tScript, tRegexString, tStartPos, tEndPos) into tFound?
if tFound? then
   put the number of lines in char 1 to tStartPos of tScript into tLine
end if

filter tScript with regex tRegexString into tFoundScript
# alternate: no appreciable difference in timing
# filter tScript with "local*"&"*" into tFoundScript
if tFoundScript is not empty then
   put lineoffset(tFoundScript, tScript) into tLine
end if

So matchChunk plus "the number of lines" is faster by ~150 milliseconds 
over 2700 lines of text than filter plus lineOffset.

Another way to do it is to use 'filter' to get the text of the line that 
matches your wildcard, and then 'lineOffset' to find that line:


put tScript into tTemp

put lineOffset((cr & tTemp & cr),(cr & tScript & cr)) into tPos

Not sure if 'filter' is faster than 'matchChunk' when dealing with large

It's unlikely if the phone makes no calls, doesn't download any apps, and has location, 
targeted ads, and other relevant permissions turned off. I have four test phones, only one has 
an actual phone number, and the other three only connect to my Mac and are largely invisible to 
the world.


I keep my tin foil hat on all the time. Up until Google required us to create a Google+ account 
(ick) I looked up what Google knew about me (which they don't show you any more.) Google 
thought I was a 35-year-old male and had no other info. Tin foil hats work!

I think either matchText, or else wholematches used with some form of xOffset

lineOffset wildcard

2021-04-19 Thread Mark Wieder via use-livecode

I'm sure I'm missing something simple here but...

I need to use a wildcard in the lineOffset function but I can't seem to 
find the correct invocation.


put lineoffset("local*", tScript) into tPos
always returns zero

put lineoffset(tFunctionName, tScript) into tPos
of course returns a line number, but possibly not the right one

put lineoffset("local"&, tScript) into tPos
gives me the correct line in some cases but fails for
local tSomeFunction,tOtherFunction

Can anyone give me the correct syntax for using a wildcard string as an 
argument to lineOffset? Thanks in advance - I've spent enough time on my 
own trying to figger this out.
