Run Not Closing Stream

Recommended Posts

cwakefield

As part of an application I am writing, I need to find all files matching a criteria on a computer. Based on examples I found, once the Run command is complete, the loop should exit, however I found that the loop would run indefinitely.

I ended up adding some timer logic, to automatically exit the loop if 5 seconds passed.

Does anyone know why my loop will not exit automatically when the Run function finishes?

$StartTime = TimerInit()
$Config_File_Path = Run(@ComSpec & " /c dir /s /b application.config", "C:\", @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)
While 1
$line = StdoutRead($Config_File_Path)
ConsoleWrite($line)
If @error <> 0 Then ExitLoop
If TimerDiff($StartTime) > 5000 Then ExitLoop
Wend

Using your original script I fixed it for you. The ConsoleWrite was causing the @Error check to never work the way you wanted it to.

$StartTime = TimerInit()
$Config_File_Path = Run(@ComSpec & " /c dir /s /b application.config", "C:\", @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)
While 1
     $line = StdoutRead($Config_File_Path)
     If @error <> 0 Then ExitLoop
     ConsoleWrite($line)
     If TimerDiff($StartTime) > 5000 Then ExitLoop
WEnd

You have to check @error immediately after the function that might cause the error, ConsoleWrite will reset the @error causing it to always be 0 by the time you checked it.
