Read file list in as an array

Recommended Posts


So new to this I dont even know how to ask for help so please only minor flogging :graduated:

So I have a list of files that I need to open and perform a bunch of repetitive tasks on. I have figured out the script for opening a file and automating the tasks. What I would like to do is load the list of files in as an array and then have autoit perform the tasks for each file in the list. I found _FileReadToArray but cannot get it to work. My text file would look like:




and so on

perhaps SQlite is my solution. I have not looked at that yet. It does seem wrong to load all of the list to memory so perhaps there is a better way.

Quote from help file:



Lists files and\or folders in a specified path (Similar to using Dir with the /B Switch)

#Include <File.au3>

_FileListToArray($sPath [, $sFilter = "*" [, $iFlag = 0]])


$sPath Path to generate filelist for.

$sFilter [optional] the filter to use, default is *. Search the Autoit3 helpfile for the word "WildCards" For details.

$iFlag [optional] specifies whether to return files folders or both

$iFlag=0(Default) Return both files and folders

$iFlag=1 Return files only

$iFlag=2 Return Folders only

Return Value

Success: an Array, see remarks

Failure: 0

@Error: 1 = Path not found or invalid

2 = Invalid $sFilter

3 = Invalid $iFlag

4 = No File(s) Found


The array returned is one-dimensional and is made up as follows:

$array[0] = Number of Files\Folders returned

$array[1] = 1st File\Folder

$array[2] = 2nd File\Folder

$array[3] = 3rd File\Folder

$array[n] = nth File\Folder

SNMP_UDF ... for SNMPv1 and v2c so far, GetBulk and a new example script

wannabe "Unbeatable" Tic-Tac-Toe

Paper-Scissor-Rock ... try to beat it anyway :)
