Check if .txt file contains a string

Recommended Posts

arryo

Hi,

I got a .txt file named: "names.txt".

I need a way to find out if it contains the string "Markus".

Perhaps important: In that file there is a name on each line.

Also, another question:

is there a limit for $Source = _INetGetSource($seite) ?

First, look the autoit help file...

for the text file :

$file = FileOpen("YOUR FILE", 0)

; Check if file opened for reading OK
If $file = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")
    Exit
EndIf

; Read in 1 character at a time until the EOF is reached
While 1
    $read = FileRead($file)
    If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop
    If StringInStr($read, "Markus") Then
        $position = StringInStr($read, "Markus")
        MsgBox(0,"",$position)
    EndIf
Wend

FileClose($file)

But your file must to be small size with this method...

arryo,

You might find this a bit quicker if your file is very large: :)

$file = FileOpen("test.txt", 0)
$read = FileRead($file)
If @error = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "File not read")
    Exit
Else
    MsgBox(0, "Read", $read)
    If StringRegExp($read, "Markus") Then
        MsgBox(0, "Oops", "Match")
    Else
        MsgBox(0, "Oops", "No match")
    EndIf
EndIf
FileClose($file)

Although it does not give you the position.
