StdinWrite and StdoutRead question

Recommended Posts

I am trying to make an input box pop up and ask for a user to enter a url and then pass that to nslookup and read the results that come back and display them. The most recent version is below but I can not get the thing to exit and I am not getting all of the expected returned results. Not sure where I messed this up but if someone will teach me what I did wrong I would appreciate it.

#include 

$NSLookupURL = InputBox("NSLookup", "Enter the URL to perform the Name Server Lookup on.", "www.bing.com")
Local $nslookup = Run(@ComSpec & " /c nslookup", @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDIN_CHILD + $STDERR_MERGED)

StdinWrite($nslookup,$NSLookupURL)
Local $line
While 1
$line = StdoutRead($nslookup)
If @error Then ExitLoop
MsgBox(0, "STDOUT read:", $line)
WEnd

While 1
$line = StderrRead($nslookup)
If @error Then ExitLoop
MsgBox(0, "STDERR read:", $line)
WEnd

MsgBox(0, "Debug", "Exiting...")

This code works for me:

#include <Constants.au3>
$NSLookupURL = InputBox("NSLookup", "Enter the URL to perform the Name Server Lookup on.", "www.bing.com")
Local $pid = Run(@ComSpec & " /c nslookup " & $NSLookupURL, @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDIN_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD + $STDERR_CHILD)
If @error Then Exit MsgBox(0, "Error", "Error " & @error & " occurred when running NSLOOKUP")
StdinWrite($pid, @CRLF)
StdinWrite($pid)
; STDOUT
$sSTDOUT = ""
While 1
    $sOutput = StdoutRead($pid)
    If @error Then ExitLoop
    If $sOutput <> "" Then $sSTDOUT = $sSTDOUT & @CRLF & $sOutput
WEnd
; STDERR
$sSTDERR = ""
While 1
    $sOutput = StderrRead($pid)
    If @error Then ExitLoop
    If $sOutput <> "" Then $sSTDERR = $sSTDERR & @CRLF & $sOutput
WEnd
ConsoleWrite("STDOut: " & $sSTDOUT & @LF)
ConsoleWrite("STDErr: " & $sSTDERR & @LF)

I'd do it this way myself.

#include <Constants.au3>
Global $OutLine = ""

$NSLookupURL = InputBox("NSLookup", "Enter the URL to perform the Name Server Lookup on.", "www.bing.com")
Local $nslookup = Run(@ComSpec & " /c nslookup", @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDIN_CHILD + $STDERR_MERGED)
Sleep(1000) ; Just in case it needs time to start up
StdinWrite($nslookup, $NSLookupURL & @CRLF) ; Needs the enter key hit before it will process what's on the line
Local $line
StdinWrite($nslookup) ; Close the stream so it reads what you've sent to it.
While 1
    $line = StdoutRead($nslookup)
    If @error Then ExitLoop
    $OutLine &= $line 
WEnd
MsgBox(64, "", $OutLine) ; one message box rather than 100's
$OutLine = ""
While 1
    $line = StderrRead($nslookup)
    If @error Then ExitLoop
    $OutLine &= $line
WEnd
MsgBox(64, "", $OutLine)

MsgBox(0, "Debug", "Exiting...")

I'm not sure your StdInWrite would work for this command, because you never close the stream or send the Enter key after the data.

Sorry to bring this back up again but I was wondering if there is a way to have a user Copy/Paste the results from the msgbox? I thought if I made it Modal they could copy and paste the results into a chat window but I couldn't. Would I need to get the output into something like a GUI window or something else?

I am sorry I am not sure if that will allow someone else to copy the results from the msgbox and paste them say into like a chat room window.
