FileReadLine

5 posts in this topic

I've been using FileReadLine() to read in lines of data that takes user input and compares it to the file being read. I recently updated the file and noticed that I get an array error after having made the file go past 64KB. After Googling for an answer it looks like there was a cap put on older versions but was removed.

I'm wondering if the cap got put back on the latest release, as that is what I've been working with.

The other weird thing is, I've changed my function that reads in the text file to use FileRead() instead, however it stops at the exact same spot.

I'm stumped and any help would be appreciated.

autoitFR,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

If you could post your code (please put [autoit] before and [/autoit] after your posted code) and let us know if there is anything special about the file you are trying to read, we might be able to offer some sensible help. ;)

Here's two versions that worked prior to adding more information to the info.txt file I read in. When it stops on the last line, it only displays half of what that line actually contains. There's nothing special about the info.txt file. There's an item name with two item numbers which are separated with |.

ITEMNAME|ITEMNUM1|ITEMNUM2

ITEMNAME|ITEMNUM1|ITEMNUM2

ITEMNAME|ITEMNUM1|ITEMNUM2

Func _findmyitem($x1, $y1, $x2, $y2)
    Local $item_to_check, $file, $line, $result, $CNF
    $CNF = "ITEM NOT FOUND"
    $item_to_check = "ITEM NUMBER"

    $file = FileOpen("info.txt", 0)
    If $file = -1 Then
        MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open info.txt.")
        Exit
    EndIf

    While 1
        $chars = FileRead($file)
        If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop
        $line = StringSplit($chars, @CRLF, 1)
        If $line[1] = "" Then ExitLoop
        For $x = 1 to $line[0]
            $result = StringSplit($line[$x], "|", 1)
            If StringCompare($result[2], $item_to_check, 2) == 0 OR StringCompare($result[3], $item_to_check, 2) == 0 Then
                FileClose($file)
                Return $result[1]
            EndIf
        Next
    WEnd
    FileClose($file)
    Return $CNF
EndFunc

Func _findmyitem($x1, $y1, $x2, $y2)
    Local $item_to_check, $file, $line, $result, $CNF
    $CNF = "ITEM NOT FOUND"
    $item_to_check = "ITEM NUMBER"

    $file = FileOpen("info.txt", 0)
    If $file = -1 Then
        MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open info.txt.")

    FileClose($file)
    Return $CNF
EndFunc

autoitFR,

I created a file in the format you use with this script:

$sContent = ""

For $i = 1 To 99999

    $iNumber = StringFormat("%05i", $i)
    $sContent &= "ITEMNAME_" & $iNumber & "|ITEMNUM1_" & $iNumber & "|ITEMNUM2_" & $iNumber & @CRLF

Next

$hFile = FileOpen(@ScriptDir & "\Item.txt", 2)
FileWrite($hFile, $sContent)
FileClose($hFile)

That gave me a file of over 4.5 Mb. (4,599,954 to be exact :idiot:)

I then ran these scripts which I based on those you posted above on that file and both returned the penultimate entry without problem:

ConsoleWrite(_findmyitem("ITEMNUM1_99998") & @CRLF)

Func _findmyitem($item_to_check)

    $CNF = "ITEM NOT FOUND"

    $file = FileOpen("info.txt", 0)
    If $file = -1 Then
        MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open info.txt.")
        Exit
    EndIf

    While 1
        $chars = FileRead($file)
        If @error = -1 Then
            ConsoleWrite("No read" & @CRLF)
            ExitLoop
        EndIf
        $line = StringSplit($chars, @CRLF, 1)
        If $line[1] = "" Then
            ConsoleWrite("No Split" & @CRLF)
            ExitLoop
        EndIf

        For $x = 1 to $line[0]

            $result = StringSplit($line[$x], "|", 1)
            If StringCompare($result[2], $item_to_check, 2) == 0 OR StringCompare($result[3], $item_to_check, 2) == 0 Then
                FileClose($file)
                Return $result[1]
            EndIf
        Next

        ExitLoop

    WEnd
    FileClose($file)

    Return $CNF

EndFunc

ConsoleWrite(_findmyitem("ITEMNUM1_99998") & @CRLF)

Func _findmyitem($item_to_check)

    $CNF = "ITEM NOT FOUND"


    $file = FileOpen("info.txt", 0)
    If $file = -1 Then
        MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open info.txt.")
        Exit
    EndIf
    While 1
        $line = FileReadLine($file)
        If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop
        $result = StringSplit($line, "|", 1)
        If StringCompare($result[2], $item_to_check, 2) == 0 OR StringCompare($result[3], $item_to_check, 2) == 0 Then
            FileClose($file)
            Return $result[1]
        EndIf
    WEnd
    FileClose($file)
    Return $CNF
EndFunc

So I can confidently say that the problem in reading a file over 64kb is one which is within your system, not AutoIt. Are you sure that in updating the Info.txt file you have not altered the format in some way so that you get an incomplete read? :)

Perhaps give it a glance in a hex editor - or post it here so I can take a look. ;)

Thank you for the insight! I found the problem and it was with my system. I set aside only 512mb of RAM for my VM running the script and bumped it up to 1GB and it works fine now. Thanks for the help! :)
