[Question] random part in url

9 posts in this topic

Hi all,

Case:

I'm trying to have my script download an file from a URL, but the URL/File keeps changing.

Question:

How can i script in something like/as a wildcard for an URL?

Example:

The URL is something like this "www.meow.com/meow/awesomefile-273-884-58.exe"

273-884-58 is the part that keeps changing to random numbers , File and .exe is what is always thesame

Tried:

InetGet("www.meow.com/meow/awesomefile-2F3DB458.exe", "C:\Users\User\Desktop\" & "*.exe", 1, 1)

InetGet("www.meow.com/meow/awesomefile-2F3DB458.exe", "C:\Users\User\Desktop\" & "?.exe", 1, 1)

InetGet("www.meow.com/meow/awesomefile-2F3DB458.exe", "C:\Users\User\Desktop\File" & "*.exe", 1, 1)

InetGet("www.meow.com/meow/awesomefile-2F3DB458.exe", "C:\Users\User\Desktop\File" & "?.exe", 1, 1)

InetGet("www.meow.com/meow/awesomefile-2F3DB458.exe", "C:\Users\User\Desktop\File*" & ".exe", 1, 1)

well u get my drift.

Thnx in advance,

Aapjuh

Local $s_Url = "www.meow.com/meow/awesomefile-2F3DB458.exe"
Local $s_File = StringRegExpReplace($s_Url, ".+/(.+)", "$1")
InetGet($s_Url, "C:UsersUserDesktop" & $s_File, 1, 1)

It's just the way you described it, usually "Hyperbolic name+random-characters-to-defeat-filebased-scans+.exe"=bad news.

eg.

#include <INet.au3>
$sSite="http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/standard"
$sSource=_INetGetSource ($sSite)
$aDownload=StringRegExp($sSource,"http://.*ccsetup.*?.exe",3)
MsgBox(0,"Download Link",$aDownload[0])

You should never need that _INetGetSource() function any more. Not since InetRead() has been working correctly and that's a few years now.

$s_Str = BinaryToString(InetRead($sSite))

I see no sense including libraries when you don't need most of the functionality and particularily when there are functions native to AutoIt that will handle the job.
