Finding Line number of string in txt file

28 posts in this topic

Hi guys, 

I have been trying to sort out this issue for a while.  I've tried a bunch of different examples but none have worked.  I have a rather large script at the moment so I will attempt to post the part I'm having issue with.  I have an xml file I need to read from and get the line number of a certain string so I can use the stringmid function to get the account number on that line.  So I need to find the line number of "<RogCustomerAcctNum>".  Once I have that I can use Stringmid to get the 9 digit account number on that line.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  There will be other line numbers I will need to get as well and hopefully with a little help on this one line will help me get the line number to the other numbers I need.   Also, the "<RogCustomerAcctNum>" isn't always on the same line on that file.  I need to set $accountline to the line number.

 

Thanks in advance.

Local $sFilePath3 = $SUITEFOLDER & $FOLDERCOUNT & "RecordData.xml"
 
Local $hFileOpen1 = FileOpen($sFilePath3, $FO_READ)
$sFileRead1 = FileReadLine($hFileOpen1, 2)
$WORKORDER = StringMid($sFileRead1, 16, 13)
$sFileRead2 = FileReadLine($hFileOpen1, 39)
$AREA = StringMid($sFileRead2, 24, 3)
$accountline = ""
$sFileRead3 = FileReadLine($hFileOpen1, $accountline)
$ACCOUNT = StringMid($sFileRead3, 29, 9)

How about reading the file to an array, and then parsing it. Think of this example, with a text file of computer names:

#include <Array.au3>
#include <File.au3>

Local $sFile = @DesktopDir & "\PCs.txt"
Local $aPCs
    _FileReadToArray($sFile, $aPCs)

For $i = 1 To $aPCs[0]
    If StringInStr($aPCs[$i], "13325") Then ConsoleWrite($aPCs[$i] & " found on line " & $i & "." & @CRLF)
Next

√-1 2^3 ∑ π, and it was delicious!

bounty2k3,

That sounds just the job for a RegEx - can you let us have a copy of the file (or at least a copy of the line on which "<RogCustomerAcctNum>" and the "9 digit account number" appear? :)

Posting a copy of the file.  I have changed the name acct # and phone # as well as address to protect my clients personal info.  where the #'s are there will be real numbers like 123456789.  I have no experience with arrays per say, so I'm not sure I'd like to go that route.  The file is deleted and moved after the work order is cleared from another program.  So I have functions in place to find the file.  When I first wrote the code it was before I found out that the account number gets written randomly.

bounty2k3,

This is not the line number but you can get the value of the node like this...

$oXML = ObjCreate("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
$oXML.loadxml("<root>" & fileread(@scriptdir & '\xml.txt') & "</root>")
$oACCTNUM = $oXML.SelectSingleNode('//RogCustomerAcctNum')
ConsoleWrite($oACCTNUM.text & @CRLF)

bounty2k3,

As I suggested, a RegEx is definitely the way to go here:

; The real code would be

; And display it in the SciTE console
ConsoleWrite($sExtract & @CRLF)
The SRER looks for the bounding text and returns a string of exactly 9 digits it finds between them. :)

I do appreciate the help.  However the file doesn't always look that way. And is never in the same place twice.  So, if I make the $sString read the xml file using fileread(), will that work with your extract?

 

Forgot to mention that there are other calls throughout the script to reading the $account.  And the account is forever changing as I complete a work order.  So I believe that reading the same string over and over isn't going to help I'm afraid.  I really need to read the file itself as it changes.

As long as the node name (RogCustomerAcctNum) does not change...

edit: Incidentally, you can enumerate any node or value at any level using the XML DOM.

bounty2k3,

As kylomas has already said, as long as the number is bounded by that specific node it will be returned regardless of where it is in the file or whatever else there is on the other lines. That is the power of a RegEx - something very difficult to learn, but well worth the effort as this example of shows quite clearly. :)

Edit:

Just seen your edit. If you want to read the file whenever it changes, you will need to use something like seangriffin's FileSystemMonitor UDF to get notification that there is a change. Not that simple to use - do ask if you need any help. :)

Like I said, I really appreciate the help.  The regexp works perfectly btw, I implemented it already.  I just have to fix my script reads all of the area, workorder, address etc....   LOL  but you guys have made life more simple.  Thank you very much.

One more quick question lol

$ACCOUNT = StringRegExpReplace($RECORDDATAXML, "(?s).*<RogCustomerAcctNum>(d{9})</RogCustomerAcctNum>.*", "$1")
 
the "9" in the middle of the code means 9 digits I'm guessing.  and change that to however many digits I need like 3 or whatever.   But what about for the address when the  length always changes?  can I use an asterisk *?
 
$STREET = StringRegExpReplace($RECORDDATAXML, "(?s).*<RogStreetName>(d{*})</RogStreetName>.*", "$1")

bounty2k3,

This is not the line number but you can get the value of the node like this...

$oXML = ObjCreate("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
$oXML.loadxml("<root>" & fileread(@scriptdir & '\xml.txt') & "</root>")
$oACCTNUM = $oXML.SelectSingleNode('//RogCustomerAcctNum')
ConsoleWrite($oACCTNUM.text & @CRLF)

kylomas

This is the easiest route to go for XML...this object is made exactly for moving through .xml files...

There is no need to include the '<root>' in it, since it's already valid xml...

$oXML = ObjCreate("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
$oXML.load(@scriptdir & '\xml.txt')
$oACCTNUM = $oXML.SelectSingleNode('//RogCustomerAcctNum')
ConsoleWrite($oACCTNUM.text & @CRLF)

edit: to include your new node:

$oXML = ObjCreate("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
$oXML.load(@scriptdir & '\xml.txt')
$oACCTNUM = $oXML.SelectSingleNode('//RogCustomerAcctNum')
$oStreetName = $oXML.SelectSingleNode('//RogStreetName')

ConsoleWrite($oACCTNUM.text & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite($oStreetName.text & @CRLF)

edit2: to specifically answer your question, the d means it will ONLY grab digits...0-9...that will not work with alpha numeric nodes.

bounty2k3,

You can use (.*) which means any number of characters of any sort. :)

I have tried.

Local $sFilePath3 = $SUITEFOLDER & $FOLDERCOUNT & "\RecordData.xml"

$oXML = ObjCreate("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
$oXML.load(FileRead($sFilePath3))
$ACCOUNT = $oXML.SelectSingleNode('//RogCustomerAcctNum')
$STREET = $oXML.SelectSingleNode('//RogStreetName')
$NAME = $oXML.SelectSingleNode('//RogSubscriberName')

and also tried....  

Local $sFilePath3 = $SUITEFOLDER & $FOLDERCOUNT & "\RecordData.xml"

$oXML = ObjCreate("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
$oXML.load($sFilePath3)
$ACCOUNT = $oXML.SelectSingleNode('//RogCustomerAcctNum')
$STREET = $oXML.SelectSingleNode('//RogStreetName')
$NAME = $oXML.SelectSingleNode('//RogSubscriberName')

But my script is not reading them.  I was able to use regexp for the account number.  And tried {.*} where {9} is to get the street name.  But to avail.

bounty2k3,

Sorry - a typo on my part in the post above which I have now corrected (I used curly brackets instead of smooth ones - I blame the lateness of the hour). You need to do this:

$sExtract = StringRegExpReplace($RECORDDATAXML, "(?s).*<RogNode>(.*)</RogNode>.*", "$1")
That will collect whatever is between the 2 nodes. :)

No problem.  It gets late everywhere at some point :)  That one works.  

As a side note.  (d{.*})     copied the entire contents of the file.

Add some debugging:

Local $sFilePath3 = $SUITEFOLDER & $FOLDERCOUNT & "\RecordData.xml"

If FileExists($sFilePath3) Then
    ConsoleWrite("found file" & @CRLF)
Else
    ConsoleWrite("file not found" & @CRLF)
    exit 1
EndIf

$oXML = ObjCreate("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
$oXML.load($sFilePath3)
If StringLen($oXML.xml) Then
    ConsoleWrite("loaded xml" & @CRLF)
Else
    ConsoleWrite("xml not loaded" & @CRLF)
    exit 1
EndIf   

$oACCTNUM = $oXML.SelectSingleNode('//RogCustomerAcctNum')
$oStreetName = $oXML.SelectSingleNode('//RogStreetName')
ConsoleWrite($oACCTNUM.text & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite($oStreetName.text & @CRLF)

note: I grabbed your entire contents into a file, and the script works fine.

Just as a reminder for those who use _FileReadToArray(), FileReadToArray() now exists.

Hi guys, I'm back to reopen this topic.  All of the info you have given me has been working for the most part.  I really did appreciate the help.

I currently have two issues with regexp.  It's been a couple months of testing, tweaking, hair pulling, smashing my head on the keyboard, but I haven't been able to figure it out.

Issue #1 

In the coding you helped me with, is there a fail safe that if the node doesn't appear in the file that it does nothing?  Like, If not stringexists?   The problem I have is that if the node doesn't exist, it actually copies the entire file.

 

Issue #2

In another file I'm working in 1 particular node will appear numerous times.  When using the regexp it is only grabbing the last instance of the node in the file.  Is there a way to copy each individual instance?   Sometimes the node will appear once, sometimes 5 times, sometimes 10, or not at all.  Basically, I want to copy each serial number to a line in a text file, and later in the script (which is not to worry about right now), I will call those serials from the text file.  As you can see, I've been trying, and messing around with it, but I can't figure it out.  The info on regexp has my brain confused.

 

Thank you in advance,

Bounty2k3

        Local $GETSERIALS2 = FileRead($GETSERIALS1)
