File copy frrom temp dir (wildcard)

3 posts in this topic

Well, first post. I am trying to copy a file from the temp dir, the folder that I am copying files from has its name changed every so often (the first part of the name stays the same).

Example

FileCopy(@TempDir & "\BUDL1******\iclog.rar", "N.Files\Getter\iclog.rar", 9)
I already know its the wildcards, would there be a way around this?

Try this and look for the file under "C:\"

; Try this and look for the file under "C:\"
#include <Constants.au3>
Global $iConsole
Global $sOutput = ""
$iConsole = Run(@ComSpec & ' /c dir "' & @TempDir & '\BUDL1*" /b /ad', _
        "", @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)
While 1
    $sOutput &= StdoutRead($iConsole)
    If @error Then ExitLoop
Wend
$sOutput = StringStripWS(StringStripCR($sOutput), 3)
FileCopy(@TempDir & "\" & $sOutput & "\iclog.rar", "C:\iclog.rar", 1)

Here, we run a console command: "DIR", using the mimimalist /B switch and an attribute switch: "/AD", retrieving the output of the command: the name of an existing folder.
