Not much experience with opening, changing and closing files.
I am trying to replace strings in a Text file except StringReplace does not actually replace the text.
Here is a sample of my code...
#include <File.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <WinAPIFiles.au3> Local $iStrReturn = 0 Local $hFile Local $sText Local $sNewText ; Location of File to be read $sFileName = "C:\Temp\MyPlayer.exe.config" ; The default is FALSE. We want to change this to TRUE $bLoopChecked = True CheckBox() Func Checkbox() $hFile = FileOpen($sFileName,$FO_READ) ; Open file in read mode to get text If $hFile = -1 Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "An error occurred when Opening the file.") Exit EndIf FileSetPos($hFile, 0, 0) ; No idea if I need to do this, grasping at straws $sText = FileRead($hFile) ; Read the file into $sText If $sText = 1 Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "An error occurred when reading/writing the file.") Exit Else FileClose($hFile) ; Finished reading the file into $sText, so close the file. FileFlush($hFile) ; Manual says to use FileFlush between File Close and Open so here it is EndIf MsgBox(0,"Before Replacement",$sText) ; Displays the text read from the file to make sure something is there. ; Loop Check If $bLoopChecked = True Then ; Find the string return > 0 for success $iStrReturn = StringInStr('"<add key="LoopCheckbox" value=""False" />"', "False") ;MsgBox(0,"", "LoopCheckBox is " & $iStrReturn) If $iStrReturn > 0 Then ; If StringInStr returned > 0 the it found the string! ; The Meat of the code. This is where we have to replace "False" with "True" $sNewText = StringReplace($sText, '"<add key="LoopCheckbox" value="False" />"', '"<add key="LoopCheckbox" value="True" />"') MsgBox(0,"After Replacement",$sNewText) ; Display the text to see if it worked. $hFile = FileOpen($sFileName,$FO_OVERWRITE) ; Reopen the file to write to it, overwriting everything. FileWrite($hFile,$sNewText) ; Write the text to the file FileClose($hFile) ; Close the file EndIf EndIf EndFunc This is the file I am reading...
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <configuration> <startup> <supportedRuntime version="v4.0" sku=".NETFramework,Version=v4.6"/> </startup> <appSettings> <add key="LoopCheckbox" value="false"/> </appSettings> </configuration> I tried opening the file with $FO_UTF8 and $FO_UTF8_NOBOM but got errors opening the file.
The MsgBox "After Replacement" shows the value is still false.
Is it possible , and how can I read and write txt files from Icloud (apple service) ?
Let me try to explain my application.
On my Ipad and Iphone I create txt files. On my windows computer it is possible to read and modify these files manually, by logging in on www.icloud.com.
What I want to make is an auto-it script who reads the txt file and create an new txt file on www.icloud.com, so I can acces these on my ipad and/or phone.
I've made a program that relies on IniReadSectionNames. It reads (~3K) Autorun.inf files in the working folder and creates a GUI based on their contents.
I made sure to revert to a default GUI upon @error.
But someone (with Windows XP SP3 32-bit) reported to me he always gets the default menu.
I sent him a FileRead command instead and it works! So seemingly there's no access problem to AutoRun.inf.
In the following demo code, I always hit success, but he always ends up with semi-success:
Local $hIniLocation = "Autorun.inf" Local $aSections = IniReadSectionNames($hIniLocation) If @error Then $aSections = FileRead($hIniLocation) if @error then msgbox(48, "Double error", "Alternative access failed too due to:" & @crlf & @error & @crlf & @extended) else msgbox(0, "Semi-success", "IniReadSectionNames failed, but alternativaly this file contains:" & @crlf & @crlf & $aSections) endif else msgbox(0, "Success", "IniReadSectionNames worked!") endif Why is that? Is there something further to check with him?
I have a script whose sole purpose is to walk through about 15,000 - 20,000 files in a single directory structure, making modifications to 5 or 6 lines within each file. Simple. I have a small splash screen that is simply counting how many files have been completed out of the overall total. The script is functioning fine and the splash screams through the initial files, but through time begins to slow to a crawl (It becomes noticeable after about 1,000 to 1,500 files).
I have used a combination of methods to write to the file, but none of which appear to make much of any difference:
Local $FileOpen = FileOpen($FileInList,1) FileWriteLine($FileOpen,@CRLF) FileClose($FileOpen) OR
FileWriteLine($FileHandle, $NewLineString & @CRLF) OR
Local $FileHandle = FileOpen($FileInList,2) _FileWriteFromArray($FileHandle,$FileContentArray,1) FileClose($FileHandle) I have checked and the CPU and memory are fine. My current work-around is to create 5-10 separate directory structures from the original one that contains 20,000 files, run the script and then combine them again in the end. It works, but isn't very portable. Any ideas?
I ran a remote program on 180 computers and logged the output to a log file with paexec. I'm trying to parse through the log file to see which computers launched the program successfully and record the computer name but I'm not sure how to go about it.
I can successfully open the log file, read it but not sure how to start separating the data.
I've attached the log file, basically every computer entry in the log file for a new computer starts with "Connecting to <computername>..." I was thinking about using that as the start and stop point for retrieving the end results. Anything with a "returned 0" is a success, everything is a fail.
Any help is much appreciated.
