StringStripCR at the end of a test file

2 posts in this topic

Greetings,

When I run this simple batch command to output just the directory structure of the root of C:\, it leaves a blank line at the end of the text file:

cmd.exe /c dir /b /ad c:\ > c:\rootdir.txt

I wanted to remove that last blank line, so the actual last line is one where there is an actual directory name entry (as in, when I click on the last line of the text file, it's on that blank line instead of the last text entry being the last line).

I did a search on the "StringStripCR", but I wasn't having any luck or wasn't understanding any of the scripts that would actually perform this task. Any help would be greatly appreciated and thanks advance!

One quick simple way of doing this to give you some ideas.

Global $sData = FileRead("c:\rootdir.txt")
FileDelete("c:\rootdir.txt")
$sData=StringStripWS($sData, 2 )
FileWrite("c:\rootdir.txt",$sData)
