I hate the Microsoft Windows search.

After trying the powerfull "Agent Ransack", i said to myself ; why not create a free alternative in AutoIt ?

StringFinder replace my old TinyAu3FilesSearch utility and will be added to the next version of SciTE Hopper

Unlike to TinyAu3FileSearch, you can search strings in any "Text" files.

Source and compiled Version are available in the Download Section.

Enjoy !

Wow.. this is way cooler than the one I wrote, Bravo!!! :cheer:  Thanks for sharing!  My only constructive criticism would be the option to open the file in whatever editor you specify (or maybe the default mime type), other than that this thing is super awesome!!  Wait.. I see you have done this:

Local $iEncoding = FileGetEncoding($sSelectedFilesPath)
If $iEncoding > 512 Or $iEncoding = 16 Then
    ShellExecute('"' & $sSelectedFilesPath & '"')
Else
    If FileExists($sSciTEPath) Then
        Run($sSciTEPath & ' "' & $sSelectedFilesPath & '"')
    Else
        ShellExecute('"' & $sSelectedFilesPath & '"')
    EndIf
EndIf

Looks like you open it based on the file encoding, I prefer mime type so I replaced the above with this:

ShellExecute('"' & $sSelectedFilesPath & '"')

 

Here was my old grep function:

Func grepsearch($searchfold, $searchstr)
    If StringRight($searchfold, 1) <> "\" Then $searchfold = $searchfold & "\"
    Local $foldlist = _FileListToArrayRec($searchfold, "*", 2, 1)
    If UBound($foldlist) > 0 And GUICtrlRead($chkSubdirectories) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
        Local $filelist, $filecontents, $foundlist[9999999], $foundcnt = 0, $flo, $line, $z, $time
        For $i = 0 To $foldlist[0]
            If $i = 0 Then
                $filelist = _FileListToArray($searchfold, "*", 1)
                $foldlist[0] = "" ;so the next lines won't append the count to it.
            Else
                $filelist = _FileListToArray($searchfold & $foldlist[$i], "*", 1)
            EndIf
            If UBound($filelist) > 0 Then
                For $l = 1 To $filelist[0]
                    GUICtrlSetData($lblresults, $searchfold & $foldlist[$i] & $filelist[$l])
                    If FileGetSize($searchfold & $foldlist[$i] & $filelist[$l]) >= 100000000 Then
                        $flo = FileOpen($searchfold & $foldlist[$i] & $filelist[$l], 0)
                        $z = 0
                        While 1
                            $filecontents &= FileReadLine($flo)
                            If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop
                            If _MathCheckDiv($z, 3200000) Then
                                If StringInStr($filecontents, $searchstr, 1) Then
                                    ;found
                                    $foundlist[$foundcnt] = $searchfold & $foldlist[$i] & $filelist[$l]
                                    $foundcnt += 1
                                    ExitLoop
                                EndIf
                            Else
                                $line = ""
                            EndIf
                            $z += 1
                        WEnd
                        FileClose($flo)
                    Else
                        ;m('hit')
                        $filecontents = _FileRead($searchfold & $foldlist[$i] & $filelist[$l])
                        If StringInStr($filecontents, $searchstr, 1) Then
                            ;found
                            $foundlist[$foundcnt] = $searchfold & $foldlist[$i] & $filelist[$l]
                            $foundcnt += 1
                        EndIf
                    EndIf
                Next
            EndIf
        Next
    Else
        Local $filelist = _FileListToArray($searchfold, "*", 1), $filecontents, $foundcnt = 0, $foundlist[9999999]
        If UBound($filelist) > 0 Then
            For $l = 1 To $filelist[0]
                $filecontents = _FileRead($searchfold & $filelist[$l])
                If StringInStr($filecontents, $searchstr, 1) Then
                    ;found
                    $foundlist[$foundcnt] = $searchfold & $filelist[$l]
                    $foundcnt += 1
                EndIf
            Next
        EndIf
    EndIf
    ReDim $foundlist[$foundcnt]
    Return $foundlist
EndFunc   ;==>grepsearch

I never really did finish it, because I had a hard time parsing huge files and was trying to find the fastest way.... After testing yours, it skips the large files by default, which I haven't found a way to parse out a large file fast.  The only method I've seen on the forum is reading the files in chunks with either:  FileRead or _WinAPI_ReadFile.  But I do see that in your program you can specify the max file size, very nice!

Excellent!
Suggestion: Add a field to exclude certain files from the search result (for example: " *old*.au3 "  to not list the backups).

Kind regards

You can add it manually in the "_FileExtCheck" function ;)

Thanks.

I expressed myself badly.

What I propose would not list files of name:

* old*.au3            (for example:   StringFinder_v1.2.3_old1.au3 in the "Backup" directory created by Scite.)

This feature cannot be added to the list contained in "_FileExtCheck".
I'm wrong?

This represents how many files ? several dozen ? several hundred ?

It can also add the risk to exclude files who are not really "backup" files...

So, given the number of files read by second, i do not think it's really usefull.

Replacing this line:

If _ScriptIsAlreadyRunning() Then Exit MsgBox ( 262144+16, 'Exiting', $sSoftTitle & ' is Already Running !', 4 )

with this:

If _ScriptIsAlreadyRunning() Then Exit WinSetState("StringFinder v 1.2.3",'',@SW_SHOWNORMAL)

because having a message box telling you your stupid is annoying and a waste of time.

      Hi all,
      I got this code and would like to be able to change Baud Rate and instead of sending character by character i would like to be able (if possible) to send whole string. But i don't know how to change it.
      I am taking input from file and processing whole line (this is done in FilesHandling.au3).
      To execute this i am just calling SendData("FileName", int) in "main" script.
      Any help very appreciated.
      #include <WinAPI.au3> #include <Array.au3> #include "FilesHandling.au3" ;init DLL function, we need handle to call the function $h = DllCall("Kernel32.dll", "hwnd", "CreateFile", "str", "\\.\COM19", "int", BitOR($GENERIC_READ,$GENERIC_WRITE), "int", 0, "ptr", 0, "int", $OPEN_EXISTING, "int", $FILE_ATTRIBUTE_NORMAL, "int", 0) $handle=$h[0] Func SendData($FileName, $LineNumber) ;string to be send $c = readFile($FileName, $LineNumber) $cLenght = StringLen($c) $aArray = StringSplit($c, "") ;_ArrayDisplay($aArray, "", Default, 64) For $i = 1 To $cLenght writeChar($handle, $aArray[$i], $cLenght) Next ;move to next line writeChar($handle, @CR,1) EndFunc ;write a single char func writeChar($handle,$c,) $stString = DLLStructCreate("char str") $lpNumberOfBytesWritten = 0 DllStructSetData($stString, 1, $c) $res = _WinAPI_WriteFile($handle, DllStructGetPtr($stString, "str"), 1,$lpNumberOfBytesWritten) if ($res<>true) then ConsoleWrite ( _WinAPI_GetLastErrorMessage() & @LF) EndIf EndFunc

      Mp3SearchEngine v2.0.0.6

      May be some of you know Songr .
      This script do the same job, it can find more mp3 files but is not as fast as Songr.
       
       



      Sites used are music search engine Websites designed for LEGAL entertainment purposes only.
      Thanks to Brett Francis, Prog@ndy and Eukalyptus for >Bass Udf, trancex for >WinHttp Udf and the AutoIt Community for his help.

       
      Changes of v1.0.8.5
       
      Three websites replaced cause they are dead or use now js.
      All search engines updated ( not without difficulties for audiodump)
      I use RAGrid.dll for the first listview (more fast and stable, but with some inconvenients to manage the no-edit of cells)
      Input queries are saved ( the twenty latest)
      I use now an mp3 pre-Load management before playing and a double progressbar for visualize pre-load and play, where you can click for directly go play in the loaded part.
      Most includes needed are embedded and all external files are embedded in script with >BinaryToAu3Kompressor .
      Multi downloads available with embedded downloader.exe
       
      Changes of v1.0.8.8
      Search on audiodump and myfreemp3 fixed.
      New buttons.
      Added Gui Menu.
      Titles are no more editable.
      New "About" with >TaskDialog (Thanks Prog@andy)
      Query button permit now to check / uncheck all checkboxes
      And some few fixes and cleaning.
      Really more stable now.
      Changes of v1.0.9.2
      Dilandau is replaced by mp3chief and mp3ili by mp3clan 
      Search on mp3juices, baseofmp3 and soundcloud fixed.
      Soso now provide m4a (aac) instead of mp3 ( m4a can be played by MSE)
      Added possibility to encode automaticaly to mp3, aac or ogg ( at the end of download) using bassenc.dll and command line tools : lame, faac and oggenc.
       
      Changes of v1.0.9.3   mp3skull fixed mp3chief fixed myfreemp3 fixed mp3clan changed to tusmp3  mp3juices changed to emp3world baseofmp3 changed to imp3 and some minor improvements.  
      Version 2.0.0.6
      Most previous websites used are dead or have changed the way to get links, 
      so instead of try to repair the previous version, i have created a complete new version.
      The main tendency is the simplification :
      Only one website : audiodump (Up to 500 results by request)
      Script use now the little pearl created by Ward : curl.au3
      It permit to create tasks (get source and get multi mp3) in asynchronous mode.
      So now, no need to use several executables and no more gui who do not respond in case of connection problems. 
      Script use Bass.dll X86 loaded in memory for play songs.
      Result is light and fast, but don't abuse of audiodump servers who are not beasts of race.
      Warning : For avoid errors with curl.au3, you'll need to comment the line 63 : ;~ #Include <BinaryCall.au3>
      @AutoItX64 not supported and only tested on Win7X64 and Win8.1X64.
      As your browser, use Ctrl+w for remove the current Tab.(if there is no search or download running from it)
      And also Ctrl+q for set/remove Gridlines.
      Events are displayed to the bottom of the Gui.
       
      Version 2.0.1.1
      Added a Paste Button.
      Querry list is now correctly saved.
      Querry Combo is now sorted in alphabetical order
      After a 'No match', the next search will use the previous empty listview.
      Bug when removing tabs is corrected.
      Added string correction for the request that, in the previous version, was not always able to return a correct result.
       
      A big thanks to Ward for his great UDF, and Nina my favorite tester, (who between us is also my third daughter), for his precious advices .
      previous downloads : 1703
       
      As there is no more script downloads count, source and executable are available in the downloads section

      Enjoy !
