Console to .txt?

19 posts in this topic

Hello,

I'm using the snippet of following code to loop thru an array and print the results to a .txt file and also write into the console for test purposes. For some reason, the output to the .txt file stops before reaching the end of the array contents, however the output in the console is written complete and correctly. I'm at a loss to explain why? Is there some memory limitation in Notepad.exe? There's only about 32 lines of text to be output, so I can't believe that is the problem. Is there a command to transfer the contents of the consolewrite into a .txt file?? Thanks in advance.

For $i = 0 To 20

$source = FileOpen("C:\MyFile", 9)

$CHECK = StringIsFloat($aTableData[4][$i])

if $CHECK == 1 Then

if $i == 20 Then FileWriteLine($source, $aTableData[4][$i] & ",")

if $i < 20 Then FileWrite($source, $aTableData[4][$i] & ",")

ConsoleWrite($aTableData[4][$i])

ConsoleWrite(" ")

EndIf ;ensure no blank spaces in data write...(all values should be "floating" decimal values...)

Next

Hello,

I have a follow-up question. Can I get an explanation as to why "checking the value of $i for the filewriteline() procedures" causes a problem in my code?? I have another script (below) with similar problems as the last...the last .txt that should be output is not written and the "2nd to last" file is not output correctly -- however as before the consolewrite prints complete and correctly. If in fact the error lies within the "check for the value of $i" (more or less than "10") then what is the cause of this? The code does not seem to have any errors...

Dim $INPUTS[20]

Dim $i

$source = FileOpen("C:\MyTEST.txt", 0)

$i = 1

While 1

if $i > 30 Then ExitLoop

$chars = FileReadLine($source)

$HISTORIES = StringSplit($chars, ",")

For $k = 0 To 19

if StringIsFloat($HISTORIES[$k]) Then

if $source then

$INPUTS[$k] = $HISTORIES[$k]

if $i == 30 Then ConsoleWrite($INPUTS[$k] & " ")

if $i < 10 Then $source2 = FileOpen("C:\MyFiles\BACKS\Lookup" & "00" & $i & ".inp", 10)

if $i >= 10 Then $source2 = FileOpen("C:\MyFiles\BACKS\Lookup" & "0" & $i & ".inp", 10)

FileWriteLine($source2, " " & "1" & " " & $INPUTS[1] & " " & "1.00");

FileWriteLine($source2, " " & "2" & " " & $INPUTS[2] & " " & "2.00");

FileWriteLine($source2, " " & "3" & " " & $INPUTS[3] & " " & "3.00");

...

FileWriteLine($source2, " " & "17" & " " & $INPUTS[17] & " " & "17.00");

Endif

EndIf

Next

FileClose($source2)

$i += 1

WEnd

FileClose($source)

Hello,

I don't understand why you say that but could you explain your earlier statement about the problem lying in "checking the value of $i for the filewriteline() procedures"...I need to understand why there's some problem there when there doesn't appear to be anything wrong with the code...I thank you in advance.

Thanks for the post. Your comment led me to think that my comparisons for the value of $i were causing some error on the output files. Since my "second code" example also had a similar comparison I thought that was messing up the .txt output somehow. That kinda puts me back to square one on my second code example, if the code is correct as I had thought then I'm at a loss to find a solution to the screwed up .txt files at the end of the While loop...

I've done some more testing by adding some lines to the end of the original "read" file. It seems no matter how many lines I add (which in turn should add subsequent files to the output .txt files) only 29 files are being created in the output folder...I cannot find the error in the code that sets this limitation, it's obviously what is causing the problem but I don't see it, perhaps another set of eyes??

Dim $INPUTS[20]
Dim $i
$source = FileOpen("C:\MyTEST.txt", 0)

$i = 1 
While 1
if $i > 35 Then ExitLoop

$chars = FileReadLine($source)
$HISTORIES = StringSplit($chars, ",")

  For $k = 0 To 19
  if StringIsFloat($HISTORIES[$k]) Then 
  if $source then
  $INPUTS[$k] = $HISTORIES[$k] 
  if $i == 34 Then ConsoleWrite($INPUTS[$k] & " ")
  if $i < 10 Then $source2 = FileOpen("C:\MyFiles\BACKS\Lookup" & "00" & $i & ".inp", 10)
  if $i >= 10 Then $source2 = FileOpen("C:\MyFiles\BACKS\Lookup" & "0" & $i & ".inp", 10)
  FileWriteLine($source2, " " & "1" & " " & $INPUTS[1] & " " & "1.00");
  FileWriteLine($source2, " " & "2" & " " & $INPUTS[2] & " " & "2.00");
  FileWriteLine($source2, " " & "3" & " " & $INPUTS[3] & " " & "3.00");
  ...
  FileWriteLine($source2, " " & "17" & " " & $INPUTS[17] & " " & "17.00"); 

Endif
EndIf 
Next

FileClose($source2)
$i += 1
WEnd

FileClose($source)

Maybe show your MyTEST.txt so it can be examined. Is it possible that you're not getting the files because of the StringIsFloat comparison at the top of the text writing section?


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Howdy,

Thanks for the reply. No actually for testing purposes I just copied a few lines from the file and pasted them in at the end so as to create a larger test file, so the StringIsFloat can't be the problem, all the lines contain decimal places.

Where in NH you at? I used to live there for many years, but no more cold and snow for me... :)

Here's "MyTEST" file data used to extract the values from. There's now about 35 lines but as stated before my output consistently only has 29 files ("Lookup001" to "Lookup029") with the last ("Lookup29") outputting incorrect data. I've done some more testing by removing the "While" loop and simply inserting various line numbers in the "FileReadLine" function (like "FileReadLine($source, 33)" for example), works just fine that way...man I wish AutoIT had a "goto" statement...

I just tested the script with the text file you posted and I got all 35 files to the C:\MyFiles\Backs folder.

BTW, I'm in southern NH and you're missing one of the worst winters I've had to put up with in years. Can't convince the wife to move somewhere warmer. :)

Thanks for the feedback, I'll keep workin it...at least I know it's functional somewhere.

I would think the snow/cold would be all the convincing she would need...it was for me!

Hey BrewMan you got all 35 files with the script exactly as posted, correct? I ask because I can also get all 35 files if I take out the FOR...NEXT loop, it then seems to run perfectly. When I include the FOR...NEXT in the script that is when it bombs out and only outputs 29 files. I've tried using other similar commands (DO...UNTIL, and another nested WHILE loop) with the same bad output results...

Anybody have an idea why adding a loop of some kind would cause the output corruption I'm seeing when the script runs perfectly without a loop?? Right now I'd do just about anything for a goto statement which would possibly solve this...but alas that's not an option with AutoIT.

I've tried changing the script to output to different folders, AND even tested it on another computer...all with the same results... :)

This is what I used, all I did was add in the missing lines to get all of the text on each line into the text files. I get all 35 files when I run this script.

Dim $INPUTS[20]
Dim $i
$source = FileOpen("C:\MyTEST.txt", 0)
$i = 1
While 1
    If $i > 35 Then ExitLoop
    $chars = FileReadLine($source)
    $HISTORIES = StringSplit($chars, ",")
    For $k = 0 To 19
        If StringIsFloat($HISTORIES[$k]) Then
            If $source Then
                $INPUTS[$k] = $HISTORIES[$k]
                If $i = 34 Then ConsoleWrite($INPUTS[$k] & " ")
                If $i < 10 Then $source2 = FileOpen("C:\MyFiles\BACKS\Lookup" & "00" & $i & ".inp", 10)
                If $i >= 10 Then $source2 = FileOpen("C:\MyFiles\BACKS\Lookup" & "0" & $i & ".inp", 10)
                FileWriteLine($source2, " " & "1" & " " & $INPUTS[1] & " " & "1.00");

Thanks. I'll have to drop back 10 and punt, I can't even get that code to run without errors even though I'm running exactly the same script using exactly the same input .txt file (I simply copy/pasted the code into a new AutoIT script...). I keep getting these damn subscript errors:

==> Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded.:

If StringIsFloat($HISTORIES[$k]) Then

If StringIsFloat(^ ERROR

>Exit code: 1 Time: 0.252

Is it possible my system is somehow corrupted that may be the reason I cannot run these scripts???

Make sure the path to the MyTEST.txt file is correct, I only got that error before I fixed that line because I had saved the file to a different location on my computer.

Thanks, I changed the directory and did a download/install of the current version of AutoIT since I was using an older version. Seems to be working now, thanks again for your help and patience. Now you just need to get out of the cold and snow...
