Read/Write Line-by-Line txt file

Recommended Posts

I'm having difficulty putting together a script that will Read line by line and create a new txt file with aditional material.

Example of input.txt
"C:Item 0x796D.bmp"
"C:Item 0x796E.bmp"

Example of output.txt
<item index="0x796D" file="C:Item 0x796D.bmp" remove="False" />

<item index="0x796E" file="C:Item 0x796E.bmp" remove="False" />

I want to learn, i'll admit i'm having trouble getting started with this particular script and I have done searches for information on this before posting this and even after i've posted this thread ill continue to be searching the forums for useful information.
Feel free to yell at me else Thank you for your time.

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

I would read the file into an array (_FileReadToArray) and then loop through it (For...Next) adjusting each line before rewriting the file (_FileWriteFromArray). Take a look at those functions in the Help file and see if you can write something basic yourself - you know where we are when it gets complicated. ;)
