Okay, I need a program written for a few friends and my own usage.
It should be fairly simple, however I'm very new to VB .. so heres what I need.
this would be the example of the data to be analyzed
Zims Spaceship (2:7) (X:3,Y:9) Volcanic 1,300 343,959
when parsed to my specifications-- it should be split into these 5 groups.
title: Zims Spaceship
location: (2:7) (X:3,Y:9)
the data will be presented as above, except having lots and lots of it -- each, respectively, on a new line.
I'll want to be able to compare two lists (matching the land, and if it matches -- then matching the title as to not get false positives) and (seeing if the land is less in the 2nd list than in the first - then matching the title as to not get false positives). if any fit into the two groups, they could then spit out all the found matches into a listbox (1 for matches and 1 for decreases) showing all 5 pieces of information.
Lastly, I would also, of course, need an option to save the two result listboxs and be able to load them.
ADDENDUM: all pieces of the data string are variables -- none will be the same, not even the length of the title .. so keep in mind -- this is what kept me from being able to program it since I'm clueless as how to do it
