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. :)

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,
      I have a program that I'm working on, and I have a button that's supposed to stop a running function, when it's pressed.
      However, I cannot get that to work.
      I put together a sample script that is set up in the same way:
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) Global $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 290, 106, 192, 124) GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Exit") Global $btnStart = GUICtrlCreateButton("Start", 24, 24, 99, 49) GUICtrlSetOnEvent($btnStart, "_Start") Global $btnStop = GUICtrlCreateButton("Stop", 152, 24, 99, 49) GUICtrlSetOnEvent($btnStop, "_Stop") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### While 1 ;~ $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() ;~ Switch $nMsg ;~ Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ;~ Exit ;~ EndSwitch WEnd Func _Start() Global $bStartFlag = True $num = 1 While $bStartFlag ConsoleWrite($num & @CRLF) Sleep(1000) $num += 1 WEnd ConsoleWrite("Exited loop.." & @CRLF) EndFunc Func _Stop() Global $bStartFlag = False EndFunc Func _Exit() Exit EndFunc  
      With the code above, while the _Start() func is running, the Stop button doesn't do anything.
      I even threw a MsgBox into the _Stop() func, to see if the script was at least accessing the _Stop() func. But that showed that the _Stop() func is not being accessed at all while the _Start() func is running.
      I'm sure this is a simple solution that I'm just over looking. But I can't figure out what that solution is lol.
      Any help here would be greatly appreciated!
      Thank you in advance!

      Hi,
      I'm trying to replace line breaks. But when there are two or more of them keep them. At the end it should reformat copied text with unwanted line breaks. This is my code:
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> ;~ Local $sText = ClipGet() Local $sText = "asd" & @CRLF & "asd" & @CRLF & "asd" & @CRLF & "asd" & @CRLF & "asd" & @CRLF & @CRLF & "asd" & @CRLF & "asd" & @CRLF & "asd" & @CRLF & "asd" & @CRLF & "asd" & @CRLF & @CRLF & "asd" MsgBox($MB_TOPMOST, "Original", $sText) Local $sRegexKillEnters = "(?m)(?<=\V)\v(?!\v|\h\h|\t)" ; (first all but Enter)Enter(but not if Enter or 2 Spaces or a Tab - if one wrote a list) $sText = StringRegExpReplace($sText, $sRegexKillEnters, " ") MsgBox($MB_TOPMOST, "Kill Enters", $sText & @CRLF & @CRLF & "Extended: " & @extended) I would expect:
      asd asd asd asd asd asd asd asd asd asd asd but get no error code and this:
      asd asd asd asd asd asd asd asd asd asd asd It works at regex101.com with flavour pcre: https://regex101.com/r/aTmV2T/1 but @AZJIO RegExp-Tester gives @Extended = 11.
      What is my mistake? Simpel

      Hi all,
      I'm trying to write a script that connects with a VBA/COM API to get the status of a connected phone. I've been looking up and down this forum for tips or other user's experiences, but I can't seem to find anything (even remotely) similar. It shouldn't be so hard to do, however.
      Software I'm trying to connect to
      I'm trying to integrate CallCenter by using their API, which is documented over here : JustRemotePhone API Reference
      Things I've tried
      I've tried using ObjCreate but I don't get any result, it always returns the same (negative) error.
      #Version 1 tried ObjCreate("JustRemotePhone.RemotePhoneService") #Version 2 tried ObjCreate("JustRemotePhoneCOM.RemotePhoneService") #Version 3 tried ObjCreate("JustRemotePhoneCOM.RemotePhoneService.Application") None of the three versions I tried seem to deliver any result other than a negative error value which basically says that the given class is not valid.
      I am starting to get the hang of AutoIt by now, but unmanaged programming languages and object-oriented stuff is still quite a grey zone for me. If anyone could help me 'talk' to this application, I'd be immensely grateful!
      Thanks in advance and kind regards from Belgium!

      Hello everyone, I am wondering if and how it is possible to connect my AutoIt script to a different email in my outlook. I have two different accounts when I open outlook. The first which my script always connects to is my own email while the second is a group email account. How or can I make the script connect to the second one and access its inbox instead of mine? This is all work related so no funny business here. 
      Global $oOutlook = _OL_Open() ; Store all the Unread emails into an array Global $aItems = _OL_ItemFind($oOutlook, "*\Outlook-UDF-Test", $olMail, _ "[UnRead]=True", "Subject", "Maintenance Request from Eagle's Nest", "EntryID,Subject", "", 1) ; Display the array of unRead emails If IsArray($aItems) Then ;_ArrayDisplay($aItems, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemFind - Unread mails") Else MsgBox(48, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemFind Example Script", _ "Could not find an unread mail. @error = " & @error & ", @extended: " & @extended) EndIf ; Get the number of unread emails Global $numberOfUnRead = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) - 1 ;MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails", $numberOfUnRead) ConsoleWrite("Number of unread emails: " & $numberOfUnRead & @CRLF) I might be missing some code in the post but my code works It's just so long I don't want to post all 2300+ lines. 
      Thank you for the help I greatly appreciate this community.

      Hello everyone, it has been a while since I have been involved in a serious AutoIt-related project discussion in the forums here, so it feels good to be back at it
      First a little backstory, a few months back (or a year ago) I made the switch to Linux from Windows... there were several reasons as to why I was motivated to do it, but the main things was Windows 10 was getting out of hand, it didn't offer enough freedom out of the box (restrictive settings, greedy defaults etc.) and had several issues with all kinds of software, many of them mysteriously hard to fix.
      I did have Linux installed as my secondary operating system for few years at that point and I began to see me regularly use it more than Windows, so one day I went ahead and said "fork it", I have stuck to Linux from that point on as my primary operating system.
      Windows is still installed in my computer and I also have a virtual machine with the latest version of Windows 10 on it, primarily because I still use Windows to write software using AutoIt as part of my job (freelance).
      I was pretty sad about the fact that I could no longer use AutoIt to make stuff for myself (since it doesn't run on Linux), I missed sharing code with the community here, this was a great hobby for me as AutoIt is what got me start with programming (even though I had tried several times to get into other languages before, those attempts were never as successful as what I have done in AutoIt).
      In Linux there is no language which is similar to AutoIt unfortunately, there are a few things which come close but are not on par with AutoIt's ease of use. As some of you may know, I have recently started working on other projects using the C language, it is a great step I have taken and I am learning a lot... but it is still not easy to create quick scripts or programs in C, due to the amount of configuration and dedication it takes to make a C program, also it is not ideal for sharing as multiple source files are involved. And on top of that you still have to deal with platform-specific APIs since C is a low-level language.
      (Getting back to core of this topic's subject)
      To solve this issue and to sharpen my programming skills, I could start working on an alternate cross-platform implementation of the AutoIt language which should be backwards compatible with the current AutoIt v3 on C
      The primary aim in the beginning is to implement all the basic functions (File, String, Numbers etc.)  in AutoIt so that it is possible to make basic and fundamental scripts which would work in both Windows and Linux
      The main features would be:
      Cross-platform (Linux and Windows with the possibility supporting of Mac) Backward compatible with AutoIt 3 Byte-code based interpreter instead of source interpreter Easy to use (just like the current AutoIt) The advantage of having a byte-code based interpreter is that it makes the interpreter lighter and faster since it doesn't have to deal with parsing the source code, this would also open the door for some compile time optimizations... another bonus thing for those who don't like their source code present inside the compiler binaries is that it should be impossible to get hands on the original source code, this of course does not mean that decompilation can be stopped... it merely means that anyone decompiling would have to reconstruct the code from the byte-code.
       
      We can later on implement GUI related functions and maybe even automation related functions if the project gets enough traction
      I am adding a poll to keep track of people who are willing to invest in this project or would like to see it come into existence. Welcome any comments, suggestions etc.
      Obviously I will have a lot to learn and my work might interfere with this at times, but with enough interest I can see myself working on this to deliver a very basic prototype which could be used with basic scripts.
