Increment number in file

Recommended Posts


First off I tried searching both the forums and the help file and I just know it's in one of them. If somebody could please help me find it I would be much grateful.

Simply put, I am trying to increment a number that is read from an ini file. The script is to read the initial value, add one to it, and save the new value. The area dealing with this is the last line of code below.

Here is my code:

#Include <Restart.au3>
Global $CommandIni = "DropRun.ini"
; Check that CommandIni exists, if not create file with default values.
If FileExists($CommandIni) Then
Global $Commands = IniReadSection($CommandIni, @ComputerName)
IniWrite($CommandIni, @ComputerName & "_Log", "Start", $CommandIni & " found and read.")
Local $defCmds[2][2] = [ ["Completed", "1"], ["Command1", "cmd.exe"] ]
IniWriteSection($CommandIni, @ComputerName, $defCmds, 0)
IniWrite($CommandIni, @ComputerName & "_Log", "Error", $CommandIni & " not found. Attempted to create file.")
; Check if already completed, if not run the commands.
If $Commands[1][1] = "0" Then
IniWrite($CommandIni, @ComputerName & "_Log", "Reading", "Entered Command section.")
For $i = 2 To $Commands[0][0]
  ; Check if line is commented out.
  If StringInStr($Commands[$i][0], ";") Then ContinueLoop
  Local $exitCode = RunWait($Commands[$i][1])
  IniWrite($CommandIni, @ComputerName & "_Log", "Command" & $i-1, $exitCode)
IniWrite($CommandIni, @ComputerName, "Completed", "1")
; Log number of times script restarted.
$Restarts = IniRead($CommandIni, @ComputerName & "_Log", "Restarts", "0")
IniWrite($CommandIni, @ComputerName & "_Log", "Restarts", $Restarts+1)

The script uses the

Also, if anybody has suggestions on how to simplify this I'd also greatly appreciate it.

P.S. Sorry I couldn't get the code to paste pretty =S

You misspelled "restarts" on the INIWrite () portion of it. :mellow:

Dating a girl is just like writing software. Everything's going to work just fine in the testing lab (dating), but as soon as you have contract with a customer (marriage), then your program (life) is going to be facing new situations you never expected. You'll be forced to patch the code (admit you're wrong) and then the code (wife) will just end up all bloated and unmaintainable in the end.

Might be an Idea to tell autoit its dealing with a number too.

$Restarts = Int(IniRead($CommandIni, @ComputerName & "_Log", "Restarts", "0"))
IniWrite($CommandIni, @ComputerName & "_Log", "Restarts", $Restarts+1)

      hi dears
      am using an ini files as a History
      Sometimes the file size is be larger to 5 MB
      AutoIt does not recognize the full content of the file
      When I did a search to find out why, I discovered that INI files could not be read if they size larger than 64 KB.
      for that I preferred to ask here if is there any way to bypass this obstacle.
      The contents of the file are  as follows
      ....... Etc
      This is the section for reading the file (adapted from my main script)

      case $continue     Local $aArray = IniReadSection($WaitingListFile, StringEncrypt(true, "filesList", $MyPassword))     If Not @error Then Opt("GUICloseOnESC", 1) _GUICtrlListView_DeleteAllItems($scList)         For $i = 1 To $aArray[0][0] $path = path_list(StringEncrypt(false, $aArray[$i][0], $MyPassWord), 1) if FileExists(StringEncrypt(false, $aArray[$i][0], $MyPassWord)) then GUICtrlCreateListViewItem(_GetFileName(FileGetLongName(StringEncrypt(false, $aArray[$i][0], $MyPassWord))) & Opt("GUIDataSeparatorChar") & " : " & Opt("GUIDataSeparatorChar") & FileGetLongName(StringEncrypt(false, $aArray[$i][0], $MyPassWord)), $scList) else $path = $path endIf         Next GUISetState(@sw_disable, $hGUI) GUISetState(@sw_show, $hGUI2) GUICtrlSetState($SClist, $GUI_FOCUS) else if $accessibilitymode = 1 then speak(str("listEmpty")) endIf endIf
      Is there any way to solve this problem, please?
      am waiting your answers...

      Local $iscore810[5] = [100,200,300,400,500] Local $iMax800 = 5 While 1 ;~     Send("{pause}") ;;func les ini fil     $var = IniReadSection("Area.ini", "modus")     If @error Then         MsgBox(4096, "Error", "Unable to read section.")     Else          For $number = 1 To $var[0][0] If $var[$number][1] == $iscore810[3] Then       MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "FAnt den på", $var[$number][0], 5) EndIf                       Next     EndIf     exit WEnd
