Help finding line number of a string

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

in short, im working on a program that downloads the source of a webpage as a .txt file, then searches through the file for a given string and if found, outputs the line number of the specified string. im having problems with the last bit, which is finding the line number of a given string. ive played with StringInStr, but that outputs (what i believe is) the position in # of characters from the beginning. so my question is bascially; how can i find the line number of a specified string in a .txt file?

hope that makes sense, its a little late here :idea:

Hi,

have a look at _FileReadToArray (). Then perform an _ArraySearch () (!!set partitial search param!!) which gives you the line number.

BTW, the line number of the "source of a webpage" is irrelevant. The OP must be talking about an URL which isn't a webpage (not html). The extension given is irrelevant as well.

The (html) format of a webpage is commonly referred to as "source" and line numbers are irrelevant to html. So you must be referring to some .txt URL.

Nothing important; if you're happy with what you have all is fine.
