Autoit problem with $Filename creation please.. help

Hello,

Sorry to bother you ... but .. I have a problem

im pretty sure its something you can figure out in least than 5second, but for a reason I just cant get.... I dont.

 

Look its pretty simple. the script does as follow : search for different folder and subdirectories for NSF files. once found, it log it and copy to to a $storage of my choice .

the problem is the following, theres is a "IF" if a file with the same name is found, it add _1 to the end of the filename... unfortunately for a reason i just dont get... I cant get it to work if I use anything else than : $Filename = @UserName & $suffixe & ".nsf""

 

I tried $aFiles $aNSFFiles etc.. nothing work. but @username does the increement..  ( around line 38 )

#include <Date.au3>

Local $logfile = "c:\bulk\NSF.log"
Local $storage = "C:\bulk\backup_test\" & @UserName & "\"

Local $hLogFile = FileOpen($logfile, 1) ;1 = append au fichier, utiliser 2 si on veut overwrite

Show your scipt's what you have tried. You need If then, FileExists and the concatenate Operator &, FileMove.  So where is your Problem? Ithink a look in the help, espacily the Exmple 2 of FileMove will help you.

Sorry i don't see the spoiler. I had a quick look in your script, in line 38 you use $aFiles, bvut isn't this an array?

Yes, it is. 

thats actually my problem, i cannot figure what the hell should i use to get it work.

 

Func _ProcessNSFCopy($aNSFFiles)
    Local Static $x = 0
    Local $suffixe
    ;Local $prefixe = $aFiles
    For $i = 1 To $aNSFFiles[0][0]
        If $x Then $suffixe = "_" & $x
        $sFileName = $aNSFFiles[$i][0]

        FileWriteLine($hLogFile, "[" & _Now() & "] Copie de " & $aNSFFiles[$i][0] & " (" & _ReadableSize($aNSFFiles[$i][1]) & ") => " & $storage & $sFileName&@CRLF)
        If FileCopy($aNSFFiles[$i][0], $storage & $sFileName, 9) Then
            $sText = "Copie effectuee avec success"
        Else
            $sText = "ERREUR lors de la copie du fichier"
        EndIf
        FileWriteLine($hLogFile, "[" & _Now() & "] " & $sText)
        $x += 1
    Next

EndFunc

Using $aNSFFIles00  as $sFileName get me the fullpath of the file .. so in my log ( debug ) its shown as that : 

[2015-10-21 11:55:13] Copie de c:\Notes\data\Help\readme.nsf (6 Mo) => C:\bulk\backup_test\poa11546\c:\Notes\data\Help\readme.nsf
[2015-10-21 11:55:13] ERREUR lors de la copie du fichier

 

obviously, its not working 

im completely stuck at the point.. i just want to copy the file using the same exact name and if theres duplicate add _($x) before .nsf

thatssss it

 

I cant seem to see where is my error...

So, your problem is that it's including the full path to the file in the log and all  you want is the file name?

a little bit more than that.

 

my problem was that the fullname was indeed returned cause its an array but I think i solved it using : 

Func _ProcessNSFCopy($aNSFFiles)
    Local Static $x = 0
    Local $suffixe


*** For $i = 1 To $aNSFFiles[0][0]
        If $x Then $suffixe = "_" & $x
***     $sFileName = $aNSFFiles[$i][0]
***     $sFileName = StringRegExpReplace($sFileName, "^.*\\(.*)$", "$1")
***     $sFileName = $sFilename & $suffixe

        FileWriteLine($hLogFile, "[" & _Now() & "] Copie de " & $aNSFFiles[$i][0] & " (" & _ReadableSize($aNSFFiles[$i][1]) & ") => " & $storage & $sFileName&@CRLF)

        If FileCopy($aNSFFiles[$i][0], $storage & $sFileName, 9) Then
            $sText = "Copie effectuee avec success"
        Else
            $sText = "ERREUR lors de la copie du fichier"
        EndIf
        FileWriteLine($hLogFile, "[" & _Now() & "] " & $sText)
        $x += 1
    Next

The star, are the emphasys on the change I did.

STILL the problem remain, simply put. my script scan for all files with .NSF extension

put em in an array, ( so i can get the size of those later )
then COPY them to a new location $storage and finaly LOG it to a $logfile

my problem, is in the management of duplicate name possibility.

hence the :

For $i = 1 To $aNSFFiles[0][0]
        If $x Then $suffixe = "_" & $x
        $sFileName = $aNSFFiles[$i][0]
        $sFileName = StringRegExpReplace($sFileName, "^.*\\(.*)$", "$1")
        $sFileName = $sFilename & $suffixe

intended to correct that possibility, simply put, IF a duplicate names exist it simply add _1 _2 _3 _4 and so on...

unfortunately, that part doesnt work anymore, ( too much change to my code ) the "first" version posted was working, but only with @username & $suffixe 

 

im really sorry if im unclear.. but long story made short. I need it to keep the name of the files it found, and rename it *_1.nsf *_2 etc in case ONLY of duplicate...

english isnt my first language, sorry for that

Have you tried to do something like this:

$append=0
do
    If FileExists($path) then 
        $path=$path&"_"&$append
        $append=$append+1
    endif
Until FileExists($path) = 0

      Hi,
      I'm looking for a way to take a number value from a Row2 of a 2D array and according to this check if files that appear in rows 3-11 in the array exists.
      For example, if the number in Row2 is 5 I need to check for the files in Row 3-6 only, if it is 6 than rows 3-7 and so on.
      I thought on using a FOR loop but I have very little experience with those.
      Can you suggest the best way to do what I need?
      BTW, the files in Rows 3-11 will usually have blank value for any row above the number in Row2 (e.g. Row2 = 5 so Rows3-6 will have values but 8-11 be empty), The values I need are in Column 1 of the array, the name of the key from the INI file that the array was created from is in Column 0.
      Full Example:
      Row2 of Array:
      Col0 = Games# - Col1 = 5
      Rows3-6
      Col0 = Exe2 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe3 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe4 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe5 - Col1 = Path To File
      I need that if Row2 is 5 to check these above for rows if the file exists, if it was 6 then the next row as well and so on up until number 10 in Row2 as it can't go above 10.
      So basically for whatever number in Row2 from 2-10 need to check 1-9 rows from 3-11 to see if the files in Col1 exists and if any of them don't exist it should call a function that shows an error message.
      I'm pretty sure I have the first line of the for look correct:
      For $i = 1 To $aAIO[2][1] Just not sure how to continue from there, also not sure if $i should be equal 1 or 2.
      Help will be appreciated.

      Hi,
      I've written a specialty INI file editor for a specific set of INI files related to a bigger script I'm working on.
      I'm trying to create a verification script that checks the ini files structure and format and gives an error if they are not in expected format.
      What I did so far is create a couple of custom arrays, each with the list of Sections expected in the files and I use IniReadSectionNames in order to read the sections from the selected INI file and compare it to the array.
      It works fine, excepts it only gives an error if one or more of the sections in the custom array is missing, if they all exist but there are other additional sections that shouldn't be there it doesn't give an error and continue to open the editor screen.
      Here are the relevant part of my script:
      The Custom Verification Arrays:
      ;Creating Arrays for INI Verification Global $aSettingsVerify[7] $aSettingsVerify[1] = "Conversion" $aSettingsVerify[2] = "AIO" $aSettingsVerify[3] = "Data" $aSettingsVerify[4] = "Redist" $aSettingsVerify[5] = "Split" $aSettingsVerify[6] = "Autorun" Global $aDataVerify[6] $aDataVerify[1] = "Compression" $aDataVerify[2] = "Exclude" $aDataVerify[3] = "LangExclude" $aDataVerify[4] = "PreCommands" $aDataVerify[5] = "PostCommands" The IniReadSectionNames verification part:
      Case $OK If StringInStr($ActiveConfig, "Settings.ini") Then $CheckArray1 = IniReadSectionNames($ActiveConfig) $CheckArray2 = _ArrayCompare($aSettingsVerify, $CheckArray1) $CheckArray3 = UBound($CheckArray2, 1) If $CheckArray3 = 1 Then GUIDelete($ConfigStart) SettingsGUI() EndIf If $CheckArray3 > 1 Then WrongIni() EndIf EndIf If StringInStr($ActiveConfig, "Data") Then $CheckArray1 = IniReadSectionNames($ActiveConfig) $CheckArray2 = _ArrayCompare($aDataVerify, $CheckArray1) $CheckArray3 = UBound($CheckArray2, 1) If $CheckArray3 = 1 Then GUIDelete($ConfigStart) DataGUI() EndIf If $CheckArray3 > 1 Then WrongIni() EndIf EndIf The Function that performs the compare: (Found it in another thread on this forums somewhere by using Google Search)
      ;Compares Imported INI file with the Verification array Func _ArrayCompare(ByRef $a1, ByRef $a2) Local $nOldSize = UBound($a2) Local $a3[$nOldSize], $nNewSize = $nOldSize For $i = 0 To UBound($a1) - 1 For $j = 0 To $nOldSize - 1 If Not $a3[$j] And ($a1[$i] = $a2[$j]) Then $a3[$j] = 1 $nNewSize -= 1 EndIf Next Next Local $a4[$nNewSize], $j = 0 For $i = 0 To $nOldSize - 1 If Not $a3[$i] Then $a4[$j] = $a2[$i] $j += 1 EndIf Next Return $a4 EndFunc ;==>_ArrayCompare  
      Any way to make a check if there are sections other than the ones in the Verification Array and produce an error?
      Thanks
