hex replace in autoit

9 posts in this topic

Hi everyone

I have 2 basic question about hex editing

- I have several texts with a common problem, in stead of having CRLF (carriage return+line feed) only had 0x0A (LF), how do I add 0D behind every 0x0A?

- Its possible to edit only the beginning of a file (speaking in large files that should't be loaded in memory) and save the changes?


Heroes, there is no such thing

One day I'll discover what IE.au3 has of special for so many users using it.
C'mon there's InetRead and WinHTTP, way better

Hi everyone

I have 2 basic question about hex editing

- I have several texts with a common problem, in stead of having CRLF (carriage return+line feed) only had 0x0A (LF), how do I add 0D behind every 0x0A?

- Its possible to edit only the beginning of a file (speaking in large files that should't be loaded in memory) and save the changes?

For the first question maybe? :

$string = "First Line 0x0A Another Line"
$replace_string = StringReplace($string, "0x0A", "0Dx0A")
MsgBox(0,"", "After: " & $string & @CRLF & "Before: " & $replace_string)

For second question give a look _FileWriteToLine function in the help file:

#include <File.au3>
;Example: Write to line 3 of c:\test.txt REPLACING line 3
_FileWriteToLine("c:\test.txt", 3, "my replacement for line 3", 1)
;Example: Write to line 3 of c:\test.txt NOT REPLACING line 3
_FileWriteToLine("c:\test.txt", 3, "my insertion", 0)

Hi!

thanks for te effort :)

in your first example it replaces all the data without check if a CR (0x0D) exists before a LF (0x0A), it only needs to and a CR behind a LF which doesn't has a CR already

for the second, in case of bynary file, it would work correctly :s

DiOgO,

I use this Regex to set every EOL possibility to @CRLF: ;)

#include <Array.au3>

$sText = "Line 1" & @CR & "Line 2" & @LF & "Line 3" & @CRLF & "Line 4" & @LF & "Line 5" & @CR & "Line 6" & @CRLF & "Line 8"

$aLines = StringSplit($sText, @CRLF, 1)
_ArrayDisplay($aLines, "Before")

$sText = StringRegExpReplace($sText, "((?<!\x0d)\x0a|\x0d(?!\x0a))", @CRLF)

$aLines = StringSplit($sText, @CRLF, 1)
_ArrayDisplay($aLines, "After")

It looks for @CR without a following @LF - and @LF without a leading @CR. I hope it helps. :)

not exactly, it is in hex code :)

$aLines = StringSplit($sText, @CRLF, 1)

$sText = StringRegExpReplace($sText, "((?<!\x0d)\x0a|\x0d(?!\x0a))", @CRLF)

_ArrayDisplay($aLines, "After")

yeah, but what means ?<! and ?! and why is a capture group inside a capture group? (like capturing it 2times xD

btw, you don't know how can a file be edited in a address (0x000024 and lenght 0x2A for i.e.,) and saved without having to copy to another location/file?

DiOgO,

As I explained, the Regex looks ahead and behind to see if there is the other part of a @CRLF - in which case it does nothing. Let me try and explain:

Follow the numbers in order

(?<!\x0d)     - 2 - Look behind (the ?>! part) and make sure it is NOT preceded by @CR (0x0D)
\x0a        - 1 - Look for @LF (which is 0x0A) then 
|         - 3 - Or
\x0d        - 4 - We look for @CR and then
(?!\x0a)    - 5 - Look ahead (?!) and make sure it is NOT followed by @LF

The parts in () are non-capturing negative lookbehind/lookahead - and are well explained in my favourite Regex tutorial at http://www.regular-expressions.info/tutorial.html.

The whole thing needs to be in () so that it is a capturing group for the SRER to replace.

Any clearer? :D

      How can I get combobox value by using  the ENTER key?
    • vyperhand
      By vyperhand
      I'm struggling to launch a VBS file via autoit using RunWait.  Due to the nature of the deployment tool I am using for said script, I only know that the .vbs files will be in the same directory as my AutoIt-generated .exe, but not what that path will be.  The path will look something like this:
      c:\programdata\vendor\lots\of\folders\randomnumber
      This is generated during deployment and I have no way of predicting the path - therefore, I am not sure how to call back to "same directory" in order to successfully launch the .vbs.
      This line is as close as I have gotten - this fires off the cmd window, but it closes immediately with out information, and the .vbs is not launched.
      RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c" & 'cscript.exe WORKPLEASE.vbs ALL /Q /NoCancel') I thought /c might be the problem, but leaving out the /c element causes me not to even see the momentary CMD window flash by.  Any help will be greatly appreciated, and thanks in advance.

      I have a ComboBox and I want, when I start writting in it, that it will show me what is the first in the list.
      Like, is I start writting:
      "pe" it  should show me "peter" if that is the first in the list.
      How can I do that?
