Finding a certain line in a text file?

Recommended Posts


2 Questions!

I need to find a specific line in a text file. What function can I use to do this? I don't want to have it open notepad and do a Ctrl+F. I need it all to run in the background so as to not affect other programs.

I'm searching the file for something similiar to this:

'<td><tr><img src="http://'

Also, how do you do FTP uploads with AutoIt? :whistle: I see the new FTP proxy setup, but how do you upload files? It it just for INetGet? Would some sort of Com function work for this?

This program downloads a site to a txt file, I need to find the new image link in the text, then upload just the new link in a file to a ftp.

Any and ALL suggestions are welcome!

I appreciate all posts!

Thanks :dance:

I think you might be able to do something like

$file = "downloadedsite.txt"

While 1

$line = FileReadLine($file)

If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop

if $line = "<td><tr><img src=" Then

your actions here

Yeah, just got that part working thanks, SupraNatural! Got the missing bit.

But now, is there anyway to do FTP uploads? I don't think there is a function, and I tried saving it in notepad as:


But it said invalid. Any other way to do an upload? I might just have to open SmartFTP and do the upload.

Any ideas?

I can't find an upload function but i think since windows has a built in FTP capability you might be able to find something there.


Search the "Scripts and Scraps" forum for "+ftp +udf".
