[Solved] Search string in multiple files

Recommended Posts

I am trying to find all the .txt or files with specific extension and load the file path to array using "_FileListToArrayEx". The result was success and pretty good. I removed first row as it contain only number. The remaining array only contain link to files.

secondly, I have got a list of strings in a different array set with following content

$array[0] = string1

$array[1] = string2

$array[2] = string3

$array[3] = string4

$array[n] = stringn

Now what i am trying to do is search each content of array through all the files. If the match is found then write the particular arry to the different .txt file. Here is the _FileListToArrayEx UDF i used for finding files with specific extension :-

; #FUNCTION# ========================================================================================================================
; Name...........: _FileListToArray
; Description ...: Lists files and\or folders in a specified path (Similar to using Dir with the /B Switch)
; Syntax.........: _FileListToArray($sPath[, $sFilter = "*"[, $iFlag = 0]])
; Parameters ....: $sPath - Path to generate filelist for.
;                $sFilter - Optional the filter to use, default is *. (Multiple filter groups such as "All "*.png|*.jpg|*.bmp") Search the Autoit3 helpfile for the word "WildCards" For details.
;                $iFlag - Optional: specifies whether to return files folders or both Or Full Path (add the flags together for multiple operations):
;                |$iFlag = 0 (Default) Return both files and folders
;                |$iFlag = 1 Return files only
;                |$iFlag = 2 Return Folders only
;                |$iFlag = 4 Search subdirectory
;                |$iFlag = 8 Return Full Path
; Return values .: @Error - 1 = Path not found or invalid
;                |2 = Invalid $sFilter
;                |3 = Invalid $iFlag
;                |4 = No File(s) Found
; Author ........: SolidSnake <MetalGX91 at GMail dot com>
; Modified.......:
; Remarks .......: The array returned is one-dimensional and is made up as follows:
;                            $array[0] = Number of Files\Folders returned
;                            $array[1] = 1st File\Folder
;                            $array[2] = 2nd File\Folder
;                            $array[3] = 3rd File\Folder
;                            $array[n] = nth File\Folder
; Related .......:

; Example .......: Yes

                Else
                    $sFileList &= $sDelim & $FPath & $SearchWD & $sFile
                EndIf
            EndIf
            If Not $sSDirF[0] Then ContinueLoop
            $hWSTMP = FileFindFirstFile($sPath & $SearchWD & $sFile & "\*")
            If $hWSTMP = -1 Then ContinueLoop
            $hWSearch = $hWSTMP
            $SearchWD &= $sFile & "\"
        Else
            If ($iFlags + @extended = 2) Or StringRegExp($sFile, $sSDirF[2]) = 0 Then ContinueLoop
            $sFileList &= $sDelim & $FPath & $sFile
        EndIf
    WEnd
    FileClose($hSearch)
    If Not $sFileList Then Return SetError(4, 4, "")
    Return StringSplit(StringTrimLeft($sFileList, 1), "|")
MsgBox(4096,"",$sFile)  
EndFunc

and here is the code i used for deleting first row :-

For $n = UBound($array) - 1 to 0 step -1
    If IsInt ($array[$n]) Then ;= "2" Then
     _ArrayDelete($array, $n)
    EndIf
Next

I am struck hereater. Any help is appriciated.

Meanwhile i used _FindinFile UDF written by guinness, but it did not give me any output. Attached screenshot shows the result of _FinfinFile. Even this UDF solution will also solve half of my problem.post-67235-0-79194100-1361448373_thumb.p

The link which you gave is again for listing files which i have already done it. I need to find if string in array exist in the files.

Just wanted to share you all that _FinfInFile is working now. The preoblem was with forum formating. I copied fresh function and it is working now.

Though remaining questions not solved.

      Hi, 
      I have a string like this : 
      Global $Msga = "urrent directory is /send.  (Submission of file with log number 29381077284 is confirmed)";
      I want to extract the number 29381077284  from the string. I did StringSplit to split based on "(" and then use space to reach there, But it's not a good choice. 
      Can anyone help me with regular expression to find the number from String using AutoIT. TIA
    • By DannyJ
      I have this example string:
       
      2020-06-08 09:23:33 : abcdefghifjklm How to trim just the right part? Or how to trim this text right to left?
      I want to trim this string right to left until ' : '.
      In ohter words: I need the 'abcdefghifklm' text.
      I have tried StringTrimRight, but that requires 
      The number of characters to trim. Unfortunately StringSplit trims the left part of the strings.

      This is my take on string triggers, triggers on specific strings.
      Able to simple text pasting,
      opening links (as long as there's a www. http:\\ or https:\\ at the beggining)
      and is able to open applications, if there is a parameter in the parameter field, it uses it.
      Shows your external, lan, and gateway ip's.
      Able to change system volume by a set percentage, reading from the inputbox the number the user sets, if 0 or empty uses system default.
      I made this because the existing string trigger applications didn't do it for me.
      I did this for me, but if someone finds it useful, all the better.
