Create 2D array from textfile with space

Recommended Posts



I'm trying to create a 2d array from a file that has space between each words in line.

I can only get 1D array with each line in one column, I would like to have each words from the line in separate columns.

The txt file looks like this:

House  Cat  Dog

Car    Bike  Carrot

I want to use the space delimiter but it is not working....

Here is my code so far:

Local $aData_from_file_FileReadToArray($File_name_path,$aData_from_file,$FRTA_NOCOUNT," ")

This should work:
#include <Array.au3>
#include <File.au3>


Func Example()
    Local $aRetArray, $sFilePath = "Test.txt"

    _FileReadToArray($sFilePath, $aRetArray,4," ")
    _ArrayDisplay($aRetArray, "1D array - count", Default, 8)

EndFunc   ;==>Example

Please post the file you are attempting to read into the array so we can test with the same data. :)
