Reading the text in the command prompt

Recommended Posts

iamtheky

Dont say stdout nor piping it to a file, nor to clip.  I need to read the text that is in the window cmd.exe, is there any of the win* or _WinAPI_* stuff that might assist in reading the already populated console so i can capture that text?  WinActivate works, WinWaitActive works, but read does not capture anything.

I am running a bash command, and it returns data to the console, but this stream is unavailable via any of those mechanisms.  This has been verified by a guy at MS who is developing this stuff.

There has to be a better way:

#include <WinAPIFiles.au3>
#include <array.au3>
opt("WinTitleMatchMode" , 2)
_WinAPI_Wow64EnableWow64FsRedirection (False)

$filename = "lstest.txt"
If FileExists($filename) Then FileDelete($filename)

$sCommand = "ls //bin/"
filewrite($filename , $sCommand)

$hCmd = run("cmd /k bash lstest.txt")

sleep(10000)

send("^a")
send("^c")

ProcessClose($hCmd)

$aArray = stringsplit(StringRegExpReplace(ClipGet() , "\s\s+" , @LF) , @LF , 2)

_ArrayDelete($aArray , ubound($aArray) - 1)

_ArrayDisplay($aArray)

changed wait to a sleep since ^c kills scripts
