Reading a file of computer names

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi guys hope you are well.

Guys I have a text file which contains a long list of computer names.

What I would like to do is to read the file, and for each machine, ping the computer.

If there is a reply, output the computer name to an edit control, and remove the machine from the text file.

If there is no reply, leave the entry in the text file and move on to the next machine in the text file.

Keep reading the text file until no computer names exist in the file.

Any help greatly appreciated.

What is the question exactly since you seem to have your requirements clear?

Start some coding on reading the file record by record and perform a ping for each read record.

The helpfile should be helpful when looking at the examples.

@Simmy,

Try to make your own script with the following example

#include <file.au3>
Dim $aRecords
If Not _FileReadToArray("error.log",$aRecords) Then
   MsgBox(4096,"Error", " Error reading log to Array     error:" & @error)
   Exit
EndIf
For $x = 1 to $aRecords[0]
    Msgbox(0,'Record:' & $x, $aRecords[$x])
Next

Best regards,Emiel Wieldraaijer

Is your text file by name or IP address?

Just a simple single line to see the format is all I need.
