Not initialized


#1

The class below seems to do exactly what I want it to do provided
Files.read_file is called first.
But it would be nice not to have to call Files.read_file externally at
all
and have the other two methods automatically call it once, the first
time
either of them is used.
So far I’ve not been able to do this without getting “uninitialized
class
variable” errors. Is there a simple way to do it?
I’ve only been learning Ruby for two days so it’s quite possible I’ve
missed
the obvious.

class Files

def Files.read_file

@@file = File.open(“test.bin”,“rb”)

@@code = []

@@address = 0

while @@address < 65536 and (@@byte = @@file.getc) != nil

@@code.push(@@byte)
@@address += 1

end

@@file.close

end

def Files.readCodeByte index
return @@code[index-@@offset]
end

def Files.setOffset anoffset
@@offset = anoffset
end

end

That’s what I needed. Thanks Logan.

Hi Ed,
@@code = []
end
end

Thanks daz, it will be useful to figure out exactly how that works.

Now I have another problem.
This code outputs bytes in hex and binary from a 16K file:

Files.setOffset 0x0000

address = 0x0000

while address < 0x4000

byte = Files.readCodeByte(address)

puts address.to_s(16) + " " + byte.to_s(2).upcase + " " + byte.to_s(16)

address += 1

end

But I want fixed width. So if byte 0 is at address 0 I want 0000
00000000 00

I can probably figure some code to add the leading zeros but what’s the
most
efficient way to do that in Ruby?

Thanks

Ed

Hi Ed,

(I saw your acknowledgement to Logan)

Here’s another:

FNAME = ‘test.bin’

class Files
@@file = nil
@@code = []
@@address = 0
@@offset = 0

def Files.read_file
File.open(FNAME, ‘rb’) do | @@file |
while @@address < 65536 and (@@byte = @@file.getc)
@@code.push(@@byte)
@@address += 1
end
end
end

def Files.readCodeByte(index)
@@file or read_file
@@code[index-@@offset]
end

def Files.setOffset(anoffset)
@@file or read_file
@@offset = anoffset
end
end

Using String % (sprintf)
http://www.rubycentral.com/book/ref_c_string.html#String._pc

I’ve added the ascii character (or ‘.’ if it’s not printable)

address = 0x3ff8
while address < 0x4000
byte = Files.readCodeByte(address)
puts ‘%04X %08b %02X %c’ %
[address, byte, byte, ((32…126) === byte) ? byte : ?.]
address += 1
end

 [address, byte, byte, ((32..126) === byte) ? byte : ?.]

address += 1
end

I knew there would be a simple way.
I think it’s time I bought that book.
Thanks for your help daz.
