Problem with IniRead and non standard Ini file

6 posts in this topic

Hello all,

I have a strange problem with IniRead.

I receive some INI file; they are very large file with a big amount of data.

Unfortunately, they seems not standard INI (and I can't change this format) because the data are written in several multi line.

For this reason, I can't use the funciont Ini Read "as is" because only the first line are returned.

So, before using IniRead I have to strip the @CRLF to have the data in only one record.

The odd behavior is that I can't retrieve all the data from a key because they are truncated.

I'm sorry but I am not able to understand my error (or if there are limits in IniRead function)..

I attached a simple test script with an example. Test.zip

Thanks all!

polps,

I just used _FileReadToArray to get all of your example ini file into an array with no problem at all. I presume you can extract the data from there. :)

polps,

As that is a very non-standard ini file, would you mind explaining how you did it? :)

[SECTION_1]
numelements = 12897
elements    = TRE_LBCHS273_PLS:     VMMI_FCO.APP_CLC.TRE_LBCHS273,
TRE_LBCHS275_PLS:     VMMI_FCO.APP_CLC.TRE_LBCHS275,
TRE_LBCHS275D_PLS:     VMMI_FCO.APP_CLC.TRE_LBCHS275D,
TRE_LBCHS276_PLS:     VMMI_FCO.APP_CLC.TRE_LBCHS276,
and so on......

I modified the script using _IniReadEx instead IniRead.. it seems to me that it's ok..

#include 
#include 

$FileIni = "Test.ini" ; Input INI file
$FileOut = "Test.out" ; Output TEXT file
$FileIniTmp = _TempFile ()
$FileOutTmp = _TempFile ()

; Creating TEMP INI file to strip the @CRLF from the section
$oFileIni = FileOpen ( $FileIni, 0 )
$vFileIni = FileRead ( $oFileIni )
FileClose ( $oFileIni )
$vFileIni = StringReplace ( $vFileIni, "," & @CRLF, "," )
$oFileTmp = FileOpen ( $FileIniTmp, 2 )
FileWrite ( $FileIniTmp, $vFileIni )
FileClose( $FileIniTmp )

; Reading the SECTION_1
$ElementList = _IniReadEx ( $FileIniTmp, "SECTION_1", "elements", "NONE" )

; Writing TEMP OUT file
$oFileOutTmp = FileOpen ( $FileOutTmp, 2 )
FileWrite ( $oFileOutTmp, $ElementList )
FileClose( $oFileOutTmp )

; Creating OUT file to adding the @CRLF
$oFileOutTmp = FileOpen ( $FileOutTmp, 0 )
$vFileOutTmp = FileRead ( $oFileOutTmp )
FileClose ( $oFileOutTmp )
$vFileOutTmp = StringReplace ( $vFileOutTmp, ",", "," & @CRLF )
$oFileOut = FileOpen ( $FileOut, 2 )
FileWrite ( $oFileOut, $vFileOutTmp )
FileClose( $oFileOut )

FileDelete ( $FileIniTmp )
FileDelete ( $FileOutTmp )
