Best way to read the Text file

6 posts in this topic

Greeting,

I have a text file I need to do some replaces.

for example:

\\orange\file3

\\apple\file1

\\apple\file2

\\apple\file4

\\orange\file5

..

..

I want to replace the apple to banana, and just ignore the line has orange. the result I am looking for is like below:

\\banana\file1

\\banana\file2

\\banana\file4

right now I am using code as below. the replace part is ok, but very hard to ignore the orange line. because I can not control to read next line

While 1

$line = FileReadLine($filer)

if ...then ExitLoop

If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop

$write=$write & $part11 & $result2 & $part12 & $part3

Wend

kind of hard for me to do that, is any good way to do it.

Thanks!

usera,

I would read the file into an array (using _FileReadToArray as you might have guessed) and then manipulate the data within the array. ;)

Use StringInStr to detect the "orange"s and then use _ArrayDelete to remove them - but start at the bottom and work up or you will run into problems. :)

Then use StringReplace on the "apples" and finally _FileWriteFromArray to save the result.

Be careful with the count in the [0] element though. ;)

Thank you VERY VERY much for your feedback.

I have never use FileReadToArray. any tips for now to control to read next line?

is the idea to read whole file to a Array? then read the element one by one?

thanks

usera,

Read the Help file and look at the example! :)

Yes, as you will discover when you read the Help file. ;)

then read the element one by one?

Yes again, using a For...Next loop - details of which can be found............................................in the Help file. ;)

Got the message? :shocked:

usera,

When you reply please use the "Add Reply" button at the top and bottom of the page rather then the "Reply" button in the post itself. That way you do not get the contents of the previous post quoted in your reply and the whole thread becomes easier to read. ;)
