Txt file delete create


Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a small problem with my code because I've started using AutoIT yesterday. I've already read the guide without success.

What i have to do:

I have a txt file that already exist before the start of the loop. It is like this:

do infinite begin
    after rn stream_M1_1 weibull 0.60, 50.00 minutes take resource down
    after rn stream_M1_2 normal 1.12, 0.11 minutes bring resource up

where I have to change the numbers for each run of the loop. So my solution is to delete the old file, and then write a new file with the right numbers.

Here is my code:

$file = FileOpen($sFilePath3, 1)
    FileWriteLine($file, "do infinite begin  ")
    FileWriteLine($file, " after rn stream_M1_1 weibull "  & $ALFAa & ", " & $BETAa & " minutes take resource down")
    FileWriteLine($file, " after rn stream_M1_2 normal " & $MTTRa & ", " & $SIGMAa & " minutes bring resource up")
    FileWriteLine($file, "end")
Until ...

This works fine for the first run of the loop; but then i get this error:

Unable to open resource cycle file: "filepath"

Because AutoIt hasn't create the new file

Sorry for my bad english and thanks

If you know what the numbers are you need to replace and you know what you are replacing them with, you might be able to use StringReplace

Instead of using FileDelete, change your FileOpen to use 2 as the second parameter. This will delete the file if it exists and allow you to write to it.

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.
