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. :)

not exactly, it is in hex code :)

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

      Hey there!
       
      Is there a way to detect movement only for 1 specific window?

      HWnd is not really working, it still detects movement in all the windows within the region

      This is my script:
       
      ;Checksum actual HotKeySet("{f2}", 'exit_') MsgBox(0, '', '0') Beep(500, 2000) $Hwnd = WinActive('') while 1 $Checksum = PixelChecksum(211, 650, 1094, 914, 1, $Hwnd) If PixelChecksum(211, 650, 1094, 914, 1, $Hwnd) <> $Checksum Then For $i = 1 To 100 Beep(1000, 50) Next MsgBox(0, '', 'New message!', 1) EndIf WEnd Func exit_() Beep(500, 1000) Exit 0 EndFunc I just want to check whenever a message comes because the app i use doesn't give notifications properly.

      Any help is really appreciated!

      Can you please see whats wrong im doing in the below code? i can read few registry entry but not all for eg, i am able to get value of "Shell" Key from the registry path  but not AutoAdminLogon which has the value of "1", is there any change i have to do to read numeric values?
       Global  $shello = RegRead ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon","Shell" )
       ConsoleWrite("This is Hello"& $shello)
      above command returns proper value , but same command with AutoAdminLogon returns null as shown in below ? infact registry has the value of 1.

      Hello,
      I've been searching on how to select the first row in my database which includes a time column based on the latest start_time date for today's date.
      This is my current code:
      Local $iCurrentDate = _Now() Local $sqlHandle = _dbOpen($sDbPath) Local $aResult, $iRows, $iCols _SQLite_GetTable2d($sqlHandle, "SELECT start_time FROM " & $srawDb & " ORDER BY datetime(start_time) DESC LIMIT 1", $aResult, $iRows, $iCols) _ArrayDisplay($aResult) _dbClose($sDbpath) What it does is it gets the first row entry in the database however it does not select the latest start_time entry in the database, it always select the first row. I've tried changing DESC to ASC to see if that will do it but the issue still remains. Any thoughts on this? Thanks in advance.
       
      *EDIT
      The date format in the database is by MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS.
