Assigning long varaibles...please help!

5 posts in this topic

Is it possible to, or does anyone know how to assign the content of a really long document as a variable? Document could contain lets say 2000 words.

$var = FileRead("path")?

the max length of a string is 2147483647 so, assuming the previous statement works, there should be no problem.

Thank you for replying all, but I was after something else.

My mistake that I did not phrase the question correctly...sorry.

Now what I am actually after is storing a long file in a script, so at the press of a button, it will create the file or put it on clipboard, or something. I know I can do...

$var = "bla bla bla" & _

"bla bla bla" & _

and so on but the document are way to long (but under 2147483647) and frequently edited.

If you want something to be "stored" in a script so that it's still there after the script is closed, you would have to create a file with the data to be stored and fileread that into a variable when the script starts.
