I don't really know what exactly you're trying to accomplish, a little more info would help, but you just stated you want to compare the last three lines in a file. You can use StringCompare to do that

#include <File.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
    Local $aFile
    Local $iLastIndex
    Local $iCompare1
    Local $iCompare2
    Local $iCompare3

    _FileReadToArray(@ScriptDir & "\Test File.txt", $aFile, $FRTA_NOCOUNT)
    
    If (@Error) Then
        MsgBox("", "_FRTA Error", "Failed to read file to array")
        Return
    EndIf
    
    If (UBound($aFile) >= 3) Then
        $iLastIndex = UBound($aFile) - 1
        $iCompare1 = StringCompare($aFile[$iLastIndex], $aFile[$iLastIndex - 1])
        $iCompare2 = StringCompare($aFile[$iLastIndex - 1], $aFile[$iLastIndex - 2])
        $iCompare3 = StringCompare($aFile[$iLastIndex - 2], $aFile[$iLastIndex])

        MsgBox("", "Compare", "Last line and one line before last: " & ($iCompare1 = 0 ? "Equal" : $iCompare1 > 0 ? "Last line is greater" : "Line before last is greater") & @CRLF & _
                                "One line before last and two lines before last: " & ($iCompare2 = 0 ? "Equal" : $iCompare2 > 0 ? "Line before last is greater" : "Two lines before last is greater") & @CRLF & _
                                "Two lines before last and Last line: " & ($iCompare3 = 0 ? "Equal" : $iCompare3 > 0 ? "Two lines before last is greater" : "Last line is greater"))
    Else
        MsgBox("", "Array Size", "Array is too small to compare")
    EndIf
    
EndFunc

If they're just numbers then you don't need to do StringCompare.

Sounds like you're just trying to make sure that there isn't three consecutive lines with 5s on them?

#include <File.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
    Local $aFile
    Local $bError = False

    _FileReadToArray(@ScriptDir & "\Test File.txt", $aFile, $FRTA_NOCOUNT)

    If (@Error) Then
        MsgBox("", "_FRTA Error", "Failed to read file to array")
        Return
    EndIf

    For $i = UBound($aFile) - 1 To 2 Step -1
        If ($aFile[$i] = 5 and $aFile[$i - 1] = 5 and $aFile[$i - 2] = 5) Then
            $bError = True
            ConsoleWrite("Detected three 5s on lines " & ($i - 1) & " to " & ($i + 1) & @LF)
        EndIf
    Next

    If ($bError) Then
        MsgBox("", "555", "Error detected in file")
    Else
        MsgBox("", "No Errors", "No errors detected in file")
    EndIf
EndFunc

Idk why I did it backwards through the file but that's how I did it.... lol

Sorry ...
8 => $STRIP_ALL   $STR_STRIPALL  ;)

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <StringConstants.au3>

$last3 = StringRegExpReplace(StringStripWS(FileRead("1.txt"), $STR_STRIPALL), '.*(.{3})$', "$1")
Msgbox($MB_OK ,"", $last3 & @crlf & "the 3 last ones are " & ((StringRegExp($last3, '(.)\1\1')=1) ? "" : "not") & " the same")

You can try this

$txt = StringStripWS(FileRead("1.txt"), 8)
If StringRegExp($txt, '(.)\1\1$') Then Msgbox(0,"", "the 3 last ones are the same")

 

thank you so much everybody for your replies the above example is very nice and small 2 lines only

any way on top of that to also detect if there is the number 4 present before the 3 that we are already comparing  ? cheers

Here it is

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <StringConstants.au3>

$txt = StringStripWS(FileRead("1.txt"), $STR_STRIPALL)
; If StringRegExp($txt, '(.)\1\1$') Then Msgbox($MB_OK,"", "the 3 last ones are the same")
If StringRegExp($txt, '4...$') Then Msgbox($MB_OK,"", 'there is a "4" before the 3 last ones')

      Ok so im using this program. clarify for school. I would like to have a program that takes every word i type in microsoft word and searches on it in claryfi. is this possible. I would like to have the program not stopping me from typing more after that word. Like when i type a word it auto search it on clarify without making me stop typing and if i want to change i can do that and if im fine that word i can just keep typing and it will search after the next word.

      Is this possible to make program works like in diagram? There is so much encryption methods and UDFs are they give security? If the $Address will be crypted with some encryption algorithm could be possible to get the value of $Address in easy way? Of course We know its easy too look into autoit code and get value of variable and so We dont want to anyone see $Address value - there are functions Could func1.au3, func2.au3.. be for example func1.php or other type of file? As we know .php files are unnable to see. For example func1 would be read by FileRead() and then Execute() Is this generally possible to do?
      Will it give secure?
      What do you think about? Maybe there is something wrong in this concept or missed.

      I need to open an application and send it keys in Session 0.  I have exe's working locally, I can see the application open in session 0 through interactive services, but my send commands do not go to the application.  The following article running-autoit-session-0, directs me to use ControlSend() however my application has no controls that can be identified by AutoIt v3 Window Info.  Get All Windows Controls also returned nothing for the application's handle.  
      What are my options?  
      Can this be done with AutoIt?
      Is there a different "relatively simple" library/tool to use? (I am familiar with C# if there is a viable library there )

      Hey all,
      Has anyone created any queries for youtube? I was thinking it might be something like this but can't quite figure it out:
      $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded() _IENavigate($oIE,"https://www.youtube.com") Local $oForms = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "form") Local $sTxt = "" For $oForm In $oForms If $oForm.id = "masthead-search" Then $oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "input") For $oInput In $oInputs If $oInput.id = "masthead-search-term" Then _IEFormElementSetValue($oInput, "cards") _IEFormSubmit($oForm) EndIf Next EndIf Next

      Scite comes up occasional, almost incidentally, in some support topics.  I have not found a "Scite" topic in the forums, so this is where I will start.  I have recently been using Scite intensively, specifically with a large project and I have certain issues.  I know that Scite is not an AutoIt product, but it is so closely integrated to the core release that it makes sense to raise issues and request support here.  If this is not the right please refer me to the right forum.
      Thx
