How to read the last line in a file

2 posts in this topic

There is a log file which is constantly being updated. I want to periodically check the last line in this file from an AutoIt script. How can this be done?

$sTxt = FileReadLine($sFile, -1)
    MsgBox(0, "Result", $sTxt)

Of course it will have to be in a loop to constantly update.

Question about decompiling code? Read the decompiling FAQ and don't bother posting the question in the forums.

Be sure to read and follow the forum rules. -AKA the AutoIt Reading and Comprehension Skills test.***

The PCRE (Regular Expression) ToolKit for AutoIT - (Updated Oct 20, 2011 ver:3.0.1.13) - Please update your current version before filing any bug reports. The installer now includes both 32 and 64 bit versions. No change in version number.
