FileMove function

5 posts in this topic

is it possible to specify more than one file with the filemove function?

i am sending the file path to the script by command line parameter.

when more than one file is selected, it passes the file names in double quotations e.g.

"C:\document1.txt""C:\Document2.txt"

i want to move both of these files in one go, anyone got any ideas on how to do this?

thanks

James

I would do it this way:

Define the commandline parameters like this:

FileMoveAtOnce.exe -d <destination> -s <source files>

-> FileMoveAtOnce.exe -d d:\Test -s "C:\document1.txt" "C:\Document2.txt"

The parsing of commandline parameters is a little bit tricky.

Afterwards you can travers the array for the parameters -s and do the FileMove() in a loop.

FileMoveAtOnce is the imaginary name of your script.

Maybe something like this?

;#include <array.au3> ; for Debug only
$CmdLineRaw_Fake = '"C:\document1.txt""C:\Document2.txt"'
$aFiles = StringSplit($CmdLineRaw_Fake,'""',1)
$sDest = @TempDir
;_ArrayDisplay($aFiles)
for $i = 1 to $aFiles[0]
    $aFiles[$i] = StringReplace($aFiles[$i],'"','')
    ConsoleWrite($aFiles[$i] & @tab & $sDest & "\" & StringTrimLeft($aFiles[$i], StringInStr($aFiles[$i], "\", 0, -1)) & @crlf)
    ;FileMove($aFiles[$i],$sDest & "\" & StringTrimLeft($aFiles[$i], StringInStr($aFiles[$i], "\", 0, -1)))
Next
;_ArrayDisplay($aFiles)
