Compare ini files

6 posts in this topic

I have two *.ini files, which I want to compare, find all the differences and re-write the values that differ,

from the second ini file to the first one.

There's a similar topic: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=82466

but I don't know how to implement my variables.

Thanx for your help.

You could read the two ini files into two arrays using _FileReadToArray.

Then get the differences with the script you mentioned.

Then use the InIWrite* commands to update the ini file.

Then I get a result that makes no sense, please see the attached picture.

This is how I wrote the variables:

Dim $1stINI, $2ndINI

Local $1 = _FileReadToArray("text1.ini",$1stINI)

Local $2 = _FileReadToArray("text2.ini",$2ndINI)

Local $ret = _GetIntersection($1, $2, 0, ',')

If IsArray($ret) Then _ArrayDisplay($ret)

$ret = _GetIntersection($1, $2, 1, ',')

If IsArray($ret) Then _ArrayDisplay($ret)

Could you help me define them correctly so this piece of work script can do the magic? :graduated:

Thanx a lot

Ok, here was my mistake: (instead of $1stINI, $2ndINI i wrote $1, $2)

Local $ret = _GetIntersection($1stINI, $2ndINI, 0, ',')

If IsArray($ret) Then _ArrayDisplay($ret)

$ret = _GetIntersection($1stINI, $2ndINI, 1, ',')

If IsArray($ret) Then _ArrayDisplay($ret)
