What erroneous value? I don't have a problem with any of mine. The golf.kix script says I got it right... I can probably shave a few more strokes, though, although I don't really have time right now. [Smile]

Enjoy!

brian, does your script remove values correctly?
the golf kix says to my script it's ok but jens says something that also values marked for deletion needs to be deleted.

Brian,

AHJ posted this
quote:
There is a typo in both the original Import2 posting and in the Zip file
The Import2\Subdirectory1 "Binary1" entry
contains this string ...,726f,... (missing ',')

And i have seen mentioned by Jens (The tournament master ) that this is by intend, AND it shouldn’t be imported.

If this has to be checked i wil have to add 20 points to my last scorechart.

Still no errorchecking, score is now: 908

I get a lot of 000000000000 on my screen AND the please post message

-Erik

ps.
Special for you Lonkero:
My script removes values as intended.

Yes.. the ones marked for deletion are:

"name"=-

and [-HKLM\etc\etc\etc]

Mine deletes them fine.

I also get the 0000000, etc. message.

The golf.zip file I downloaded had no such error( nor the binary1 value even).. So, I didn't realize it was an issue.

P.S. It's a little hard to do this if there are different versions of the files...

Brian

I reckon we should change the scoring system to give each command and variable a point each, rather than per length. The per length scoring system gives EXPANDENVIRONMENTVARS more points than GO for no reason.

To improve your score, you can make a UDF called A that contains your WRITEPROFILESTRING function and get a lower score. I think this goes against the whole concept/principle of golf by allowing a more complicated script to score better than a simpler one.

I propose that we change the scoring system to count keywords and variables instead, allowing a better indication of cleaner coding to show. This would also allow more meaningful variable names, increasing code readability.

erik, I think jens said that misspelled data does not have to be cared of.

this means two things:
the value may not get in.
the value may go in.

my script writes that value in just fine and I'm not going to drop it out and get 50 more hits by it.
as we don't need to make errorchecking or datavalidation of any type.

cj, in your example "if you write a UDF 'A' and call it your get a lower score" is not correct. If you write a UDF, you have to include the code of that UDF as well.

KixGolf score = 828

sh*t!
adding the delvalue code added 43 strokes!!! [Mad] (reference 785 from post "posted 17 July 2002 00:13" at page 4)

not funny anymore [Frown] [Frown] [Frown]

let's get some coffee and smoke a cigarette and find out what the heck is wrong...

CJ, I agree.

Counting varnames as one point would also make the use of $ alone as varname obsolete.

It would also be nice if decaring vaiables using Dim and Global were free. Right now i’m making a script that breakes all my own principles. I use nondescriptive varnames and reuse varibles for different purposes, which i would never do ’in the real world’

The backside of imlying new rules is that it wil be very difficult to count the points.

As for the function idea for long command names, i belive that if you have to use writeprofilestring more than 3 times in your script you would start to improve your score by creating a function for it.

-Erik

ps.
My score is now: 878 (And the script is nearly impossible to understand)

I like the scoring system as is because it challanges you to think differently ('Think outside the bun', Taco Bell commercial), now it's not about beautiful code, or self-explanatory code. It's about optimizing as much functionality into a single line as possible. Of course, this also makes it harder to read/understand the script, but that's part of the challange.
