Beginning to use AutoIT

Recommended Posts

forkinpm

Hallo!

I am new to this product and what it can be used for.

I am a writer and not a programmer.

What I would like to do is the following.

1. Create a folder for AutoIT work-in-process with certain files.

2. Open the first file of 5 English sentences with a total of 60 to 75 words.

3. Open a simple dictionary file, CSV format, in which each word is in column 1 and column 2 contains the word tags.

4. Read each word in each sentence from file 1 and search for it in file 2.

5. Copy the word tags for word found & write them in brackets back to file 1 after each word in aach sentence.

Does anyone have experience of doing such with AutoIT, or is it possible to do?

Anyone knowing how it can be done, I could provide copies of the files to to test and show how to do it.

For any help and advice I would be most grateful.

Regards, forkinpm.

The question that comes to my mind is: Do you want to learn how to program? If yes, you can get a lot of information how to solve your problem on this forum. BUT: You have to show some efforts yourself because no one is going to write the complete code for you.

So start with DirCreate, FileCopy and FileRead, FileReadLine

This would be a good place to start too, AutoIt Wiki. :)
