StringReplace woes

Go to solution Solved by mikell,

Recommended Posts

So I am working on a small project that at the moment grabs a list of PCs that are connected to the network and displays their IP address. The functionality is there but I am having one small issue. I have two StringReplace functions going on. The first one fails, but the other works. I have this same snippet of code in another script of mine that works just fine. The only difference is the name of the variables. Care to take a look and help me see what I am not seeing?

#include <Filev1.au3>
#include <array.au3>


Func netreport()
    Dim $report[50][3]
    $report[0][0] = "Computer name"
    $report [0][1] = "IP Address"

    $pcnames = "c:\temp\pcnames.txt"
    RunWait(@Comspec & " /c " & "net view > " & $pcnames, "" , @SW_HIDE)
    $x= 1
    For $i= 4 to 100
        $name = FileReadLine($pcnames,$i)
        $name = StringTrimLeft($name,2)
        $ip = RunWait(@Comspec & " /c " & "ping " & $name & ' -n 1 |Find "[" > c:\temp\yip.txt', "", @SW_HIDE)
        $iptxt = FileOpen("c:\temp\yip.txt",0)
        $ip = FileRead($iptxt)
;~      MsgBox(64,"text",$ip)
        $ip=StringReplace($ip,"Pinging "& $name &" [", " ") ; this does not work
        $ip=StringReplace($ip,"] with 32 bytes of data:"," ") ; this does work
;~      MsgBox(64,"test",$ip)
        $report[$x][0] = $name
        $report[$x][1] = $ip
        $i = $i + 1
        $x = $x + 1

I would imagine that the function does not find the exact string you wish to replace and so fails. Are you sure that the string is correct? Have you checked in a binary editor that it matches? :huh:

Perhaps post an example file here so we can look at it. And you might be better going with StringRegExpReplace in any case. ;)
