Error in array read from file

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I am messing around with a way of determining the PID of each of my gameservers, so I can force close only one of them, as they have the same process name.

After doing a lot of lookups in the help file, I managed to write a short script that should do what I want, however it will not run, as it returns this error:

If StringRegExp($fields[8], "[FastDL]") Then
If StringRegExp(^ ERROR

The whole script looks like this:

#Include <String.au3>
;Check for processes with the imagename srcds.exe and save them to a file called plist.txt
Run("findproc.cmd")
;Read the file
$plist = FileOpen("plist.txt")
$pidi = 1
$numservers = 2
While $pidi <= $numservers
$pidi+=1
$line = FileReadLine($plist)
$fields = _StringExplode($line,",");Split up
If StringRegExp($fields[8], "[FastDL]") Then
  $PID_Sandbox = $fields[1]
ElseIf (StringRegExp($fields[8], "[FRETTA]") Then
  $PID_Fretta = $fields[1]
EndIf
WEnd
FileClose($plist)
msgBox(0,"Server PIDs","Sandbox: " & $PID_Sandbox & "n Fretta: " & $PID_Fretta)

findproc.cmd contains the line "tasklist /FO CSV /FI ""ImageName eq srcds.exe"" /NH /v > plist.txt"

What is the full error message you are receiving? Does $fields contain 9 elements every time?


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.

Why are you not using ProcessList() ?

That IS the whole error...

Also $plist is a file that contains 9 columns which are saved in a comma-seperated format (CSV) which is why I find it easy to explode the string using , as a delimiter.

However $fields does not contain anything before the file is loaded and put into the array.

Why are you not using ProcessList() ?

Because I need to know the title of the window associated with the process in order to identify it, as both processes are named srcds.exe... Edited by TimeSheep

Another question, why are you using StringRegExp just to see if the string contains the search string, seems like overkill when StringInStr or, if "[FastDL]" is the entire string contents, a simple If $fields[8] = "[FastDL]" would work just as well.
