hex replace in autoit

Recommended Posts

Kyan

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. :)

Hi!

not exactly, it is in hex code :)

DiOgO,

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

      Hi all,
      I need to use ControlMove() on some controls of a hidden GUI window.
      This works properly on a GUI window created with default style, but does not work on a GUI window created with style $WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW
      func GUItest($bOverlapped) $m = GUICreate("test", 200, 100, -1, -1, $bOverlapped ? $WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW : -1) $g = GUICtrlCreateButton("test", 0, 0) ControlMove($m, "", $g, 30, 30) GUISetState() endfunc GuiTest(false) ; button 'test' properly moved to (30,30) GuiTest(true) ; button 'test' not moved and still sitting at (0,0) Any reason for this unexpected behavior ?
      Any workaround to fix this ?
      Thanks for any help

      Hi all..
      I'm having slight issue that has be a bit puzzled.
      I have an Input control.. After a certain function runs, it Disables that Input control, and sets it to ReadOnly.
      When running another certain function, it re-Enables that Input control, and sets the style back to Default.
      Which does work, however, when typing into the Input control after re-Enabling it, the text appears as a light gray color, rather than its original black color.
      I'm sure there's a simple solution here.. But what that is, appears to be beyond me.
      Here is a simplified example code:
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= Global $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 245, 215, 192, 124) Global $disableBTN = GUICtrlCreateButton("Disable", 32, 64, 75, 25) Global $enableBTN = GUICtrlCreateButton("Enable", 128, 64, 75, 25) Global $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 32, 120, 169, 21) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $disableBTN disable() Case $enableBTN enable() EndSwitch WEnd Func disable() GUICtrlSetState($Input1, $GUI_DISABLE) GUICtrlSetStyle($Input1, $ES_READONLY) EndFunc Func enable() GUICtrlSetState($Input1, $GUI_ENABLE) GUICtrlSetStyle($Input1, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT) EndFunc  
      Any help would be greatly appreciated
      Thank you in advance!

      Hi all,
      I'm trying to create a script that runs a JSON-query and then can retrieve some variables out of the returned, decoded object using JSON.au3. I have tried some other examples on this forum, but I'm stuck at one point. My query works perfectly and gets loaded into the variable $data. Then, decoding $data to $object seems to work as well. But then I can't get the date-field out of this JSON-structure with my script.
      The JSON-structure returned looks like this:
      { "content": [ { "id": "451ec583-8f27-4926-82a3-a2d85e57a110", "createdDate": "2018-08-08T08:40:57.449004Z", "updatedDate": "2018-08-08T08:40:57.449004Z", "lastOpenedDate": "2018-08-08T08:40:57.449004Z", "date": "2018-04-26T00:00:00", "description": "X-Ray Exam", "patient": { "id": "f857238a-c75d-4760-b8d1-8f50f8f9bbfa", "createdDate": "2018-08-08T08:40:37.623976Z", "updatedDate": "2018-08-08T08:40:37.623976Z", "lastOpenedDate": "2018-08-08T08:40:37.623976Z", "name": "Fuerstonia", "birthDate": "2014-06-08", "breed": "", "chip": "", "color": "", "damsire": "", "sire": "", "neutered": false, "orthancUuid": "", "sex": "U", "species": "Paard", "ueln": "De 431310762114", "pmsReference": "", "origin": "" }, "type": "study", "accessionNumber": "KME201806960467", "instanceUid": null, "orthancUuid": "", "sent": false, "seriesCount": 0, "modalityType": "RX", "typeAndModality": "study RX", "client": { "id": "be627195-8458-4927-8446-f1ef37b917a4", "createdDate": "2018-08-08T08:40:31.433968Z", "updatedDate": "2018-08-08T08:40:31.433968Z", "lastOpenedDate": "2018-08-08T09:26:49.512298Z", "via": "", "extraInfo": "", "pmsReference": "", "contact": { "id": "406cc555-c491-4c29-b6bb-8d903f0e35a9", "createdDate": "2018-08-08T08:40:31.428968Z", "updatedDate": "2018-08-08T08:40:31.428968Z", "lastName": "Client 1", "firstName": "", "company": "", "email": "", "language": "nl", "phone": "", "address": { "id": "6fc7703c-137a-4e0a-ba96-8c7f38f2044b", "city": "", "country": "", "line": "", "postalCode": "" } } } }, My script looks like this:
      #RequireAdmin #include <json.au3> #include <inet.au3> #include <File.au3> ;Create a handle to a logfile (will be created if it doesnt exist) Global $logfile = FileOpen("C:\VSOL\VSTK\Logs\MigrationFix\MigrationFix.log",9) FileWriteLine($logfile,"Start script") ;Create the URL with the JSON-query $URL = "http://localhost:8080/v0/studies/?seriesCount=1" ;Catch the query output into a variable $data = _INetGetSource($URL) ;Check if there is any data at all in this variable, if not, exit If Not $data Then MsgBox(1,"Error","No answer. Server is probably not running.") Exit EndIf ;For debugging purposes FileWriteLine($logfile,$data) ;Decode the JSON_string into a useable object $object = Json_Decode($data,1000) If @error Then FileWriteLine($logfile,"Error decoding JSON") Exit EndIf Local $i = 0 ;Start a loop to retrieve the study date of each study... While 1 $study_date = json_get($object,'[' & $i & '].date') If @error Then FileWriteLine($logfile,"Study-Date retrieval error") ExitLoop EndIf $i = $i + 1 WEnd ;Close the logfile FileWriteLine($logfile,"Stop script") FileClose($logfile) ;Open the logfile for quick reference ShellExecute("C:\VSOL\VSTK\Logs\MigrationFix\MigrationFix.log") If believe it has something to do with my json_get($object...)-command. Anyone who can point me in the right direction?
      Thanks in advance!
      Kind regards
