Func _Offset2String($my_file, $start, $end)
  Local $file = FileOpen($my_file, 16)  ;$FO_BINARY
  Local $chars = StringRegExp(FileRead($file), '[[:xdigit:]]{2}', 3)
  Local $txt = "offset " & $start & "-" & $end & " :" &@crlf&@crlf
  For $i = $start to $end
    $txt &= Chr("0x" & $chars[$i])
  Return $txt

Certainly much easier using FileSetPos  :)

#include <FileConstants.au3>

ConsoleWrite(_ReadOffSet("1.txt",0,3) & @CRLF)
Func _ReadOffSet($sFilePath,$iOffset,$iLen=1)
    Local $sRet=""
    Local $hFile=FileOpen($sFilePath,$FO_BINARY)
    Return $sRet

Thx. Best way 4me FileSetPos.


ConsoleWrite(BinaryToString(_ReadOffSet(@ScriptDir&"\FontAwesome.otf",0x000000,16),1) & @CRLF)

      I was just working on a project that involved decoding a stream of binary data from a serial port in AutoIt.  It took me a few hours to figure out how to process the data efficiently in AutoIt and I did not find any helpful examples on how to do so, so I thought I would share my core example and maybe save someone else some time.  There may be a more efficient way to do this, but this works well for me.
      #cs Author: ToasterKing This is an example of a way to parse streaming binary data that follows a strict format with a header and footer. In this example, each frame is 5 bytes with a 2-byte header of 0xD5AA and a 1-byte footer of 0xAD. The _BinaryParse() function accumulates incoming data in a buffer. Once a footer is found, it searches backward for the header, and if it is in the right position, it extracts the remaining 2 bytes in the middle, then moves on to looking for the next frame. #ce ; The data source might be something asynchronous like serial or TCP, but since this is just an example, I'm just putting the data in a variable. Local $fSomeData $fSomeData = Binary("0xD5AA24B1") ; Binary data constituting almost a complete frame. _BinaryParse($fSomeData) ; Call the function with the received data. It isn't a complete frame, so it is just stored in the buffer until more data is received. $fSomeData = Binary("0xAD62D5AA92E7AD") ; Remainder of the previous frame, one garbage byte (0x62) which should be skipped, and a complete additional frame. _BinaryParse($fSomeData) ; The function should be able to parse both frames now. Func _BinaryParse($fNewData) Local Static $fBinaryReceived = Binary("") ; Buffer for received data ConsoleWrite("Hey, the function is called!" & @CRLF) ; Add new data to the buffer. ; This ridiculous monstrosity is the only way I could find to append binary data to binary data in AutoIt. It must be converted to strings first. ; Both, one, or no substrings will begin with "0x" depending on whether they contained binary data. To be converted back to binary properly, only one instance ; of "0x" must exist at the beginning of the string. $fBinaryReceived = Binary("0x" & StringReplace(String($fBinaryReceived) & String($fNewData),"0x","")) ConsoleWrite("Data in the buffer: " & String($fBinaryReceived) & @CRLF) Local $iLength = BinaryLen($fBinaryReceived) ; Count the bytes in the data If $iLength > 0 Then Local $fBinaryReceivedTemp = $fBinaryReceived ; Create temporary copy to work on Local $fByte1,$fByte2 For $i = 1 To $iLength If BinaryMid($fBinaryReceivedTemp,$i,1) = 0xAD Then ; If the 1-byte footer found ConsoleWrite("Footer found at end of " & $i & " of " & $iLength & " bytes!" & @CRLF) If BinaryMid($fBinaryReceivedTemp,$i - 4,1) = 0xD5 And BinaryMid($fBinaryReceivedTemp,$i - 3,1) = 0xAA Then ; and the 2-byte header is found 4 bytes before that ConsoleWrite("Header found before the footer!" & @CRLF) $fByte1 = BinaryMid($fBinaryReceivedTemp,$i - 2,1) ; Get 1st byte in the body (between header and footer) $fByte2 = BinaryMid($fBinaryReceivedTemp,$i - 1,1) ; Get 2nd byte in the body (between header and footer) ConsoleWrite("Here is the critical data: " & String($fByte1) & " " & String($fByte2) & @CRLF) ; Just display the 2 bytes for demonstration purposes. Normally, you'd do something more useful with it here. EndIf $fBinaryReceived = BinaryMid($fBinaryReceivedTemp,$i + 1) ; Truncate the original data to remove all of the bytes just processed, then continue processing $fBinaryReceivedTemp EndIf Next EndIf EndFunc

      I want to replace this value with autoit, usually I do that with HxD editor and replace selection utility.
      I'm able to find the exact value but I do not understand how to replace it, can someone explain me how to do it?
      My code
      #include <String.au3> #include <Array.au3> $file = "myfile" $read = FileRead($file) $filhex = _StringToHex($read) $split = StringRegExp($filhex, "(?s).{1,2}", 3) $kb = 0 $sp = "" $val = "" $row = 0 For $i = 0 To UBound($split) - 1 $kb += 1 If $kb < 16 Then $sp = " " $val &= $split[$i] & $sp ElseIf $kb = 16 Then $sp = @CRLF $val &= $split[$i] & $sp $kb = 0 $row += 1 EndIf Next ConsoleWrite($split[53]&@LF)
