StringFinder v1.2.3

Recommended Posts

wakillon

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.

      I need help turning this string "20180913221626" into a formatted time string.
      I need to go from this: 20180913221626
      to this: 09/13/2018 10:16 PM
      I do not always know what the date will be so I can not just use a variable I need to actually convert/format. 
      I did see an older post in the forms that was basically the same question only the other guy did not post the working code and I can not figure out how to use _AD_GetObjectProperties properly to get what I want. 
      As always any help would be appreciated. 
      Here is the code I use to find the date, but it always gives me the unformatted version. 
      ;retrieve the items object $oItem = $oOutlook.Session.GetItemFromID($aItems[1][0], Default) $oItem.GetInspector $eSentOn = $oItem.SentOn ; When was the email sent? MsgBox("", "Sent On of the email", $eSentOn) ;******************************************************************************* ; Formats the date and time from the email ;******************************************************************************* ;Local $fDatenTime = _DateTimeFormat($eSentOn, 1) ;MsgBox("", "Formatted email time", $fDatenTime) $aProperties = _AD_GetObjectProperties($eSentOn) _ArrayDisplay($aProperties, "Did the conversion work?")

      My program has to first search for names in Column D that do not match up with column C. I got that search to work using arrays. It was slow and I could not figure out how to delete them so I just manually put coded the names that do not belong. I found their cell location but I do not know how to store that location and delete it.
      This is what I have so far.
      Local $NameToDelete1[6]  = _Excel_RangeFind($OpenWorkbook, "Smith, Bill") _ArrayDisplay($NameToDelete1, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeFind Example 1", "", 0, "|", "Sheet|Name|Cell|Value|Formula|Comment") _Excel_RangeDelete($OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, $NameToDelete1[2], $xlShiftUp)  
      Please help, I wanted to have this program done yesterday but I did not see this problem until yesterday.

      I got that func
      Func makeHelpImgGUI($title,$width,$height,$img) $img = GUICtrlCreatePic("",20,40,$width,$height) _ResourceSetImageToCtrl($img, "HERE") EndFunc and I call this func like that
      makeHelpImgGUI("Image",1190, 800,$SETTINGS_JPG)  
      so what is the problem in the parameter where is - "HERE" I need value of img but passed as string
      so $img = $SETTINGS_JPG and how make it "SETTINGS_JPG"
       
      I tried something like that but not work
      Func makeHelpImgGUI($title,$width,$height,$img) $name_str = String($img) $name_str = StringTrimLeft ($name_str, 1 ) $img = GUICtrlCreatePic("",20,40,$width,$height) _ResourceSetImageToCtrl($img, $name_str) EndFunc

      Hi, I have the following line in a text file 'input.txt'. I know the line number - say '6'. I wish to replace the text 'WWW' in the below line with a random number (I can generate that with random()).
      WERIS  WWWJP   3.83  8.330  1.000                1097.RAXX 
      The WWW is a 3 digit integer (could be any number between 0 to 999), I can use stringtrimleft and get the numerical value of WWW in this file
      so, basically, I know the string to replace (ie; WWW stored in a variable), I know the line number to work on and the file location/name and the replacement variable (through random()). My requirement is to fill that 3 spaces with my random number (which Is a integer between 1 and 999)
      please put ur suggestions
