Hello, I have a simple task today, I am sure that I made a similar post a long time ago... I want trim (delete or remove or wipe) the contents of a file (text or binary) WITHOUT storing the contents of the file anywhere in the script. Here is a text file for the purpose of experimenting: (contents of text.txt)
1234567890 The task is simple, remove "456" from the contents of text.txt WITHOUT storing the contents anywhere! I wanted to post some code but it seems impossible to provide any relevant code this time...
Good luck with the challenge! TD
Perhaps, if you have a spare moment, you might like to take a look at >Wiki Examples Challenge Part 2 in the Developer Chat section, and do AutoIt and the contestants a favor, by examining the six Examples and casting a vote for one of them.
That would be really appreciated.
P.S. Jos, ETC, Melba23 - I hope you don't mind me posting this here and in General Help as well?
Last time I had a >Paper, Rock, Scissors - Challenge and now I think it's time for a new one.
Challenge: Create a lottery game with the least amount of lines in AutoIt. The user should be prompted to enter a string of 7 lottery numbers from 1 to 49 and have either a comma (,) or single space as the delimiter e.g. 1,5,10,37,15,43,2. It should be checked against 7 random numbers to see if they all match. If all 7 match then they win, otherwise they lose. The numbers should be valid and contain zero duplicates in both the user's choice and computer generated sequence.
Note: I am not playing this time around as some people said it was unfair that I took part last time. Oh and serious contenders need only apply please.
PS. I created this in C# using 4 lines of code when the idea was presented to me by a mate...so yeah...good luck! -_0
