im just started in programming and all..
and i wanted to learn autoscript to.
Was wondering if any can convert my one-liner batch script to an autoit script -
FOR /F %%i IN (names.txt) DO @copy system.act %%i.act
So what this does is open and read the file "names.txt" incrementally, and copy a certain file named "system.act" and rename it to each name that is listed on "names.txt"
So im trying this on autoit but no idea how to start file manipulation and do command -
$file = "c:\names.txt"
For $i = 1 to _FileCountLines($file)
$line = FileReadLine($file, $i)
Can anyone help me or guide me on how to continue this to get the result that i want..:)?
I'm currently working a program that constantly prints out log files through "consolewrite" and the "#AutoIt3Wrapper_Change2CUI=y" wrapper.
Part of this program requires me to run a batch script.
My issue is the batch script launches from the same window as consolewrite. I need the batch file to be launched through a different window as currently this causes an issue with the logs (which need to be very precise) but also causes the batch file to produce some funny behavior...
Does anyone know how I can force the file to run on a second DOS window?
Thanks in advance!!!
Edit: Im using the "run" command if that helps. I tried "shellexecute" but that seemed to not launch the batch scripts at all.
I have several batch files, e.g.
echo off echo !DT | ncat 192.168.1.6 80 > scan1.dta This data1.bat works as expected by saving data from !DT command.
I have tried several variations from AutoIt
; $DOS = RunWait(@ComSpec & " /k " & "ncat 192.168.1.6 80 <getdata >scan1.dta", "", @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD) ; $DOS = Run(@ComSpec & " /k " & "ncat 192.168.1.6 80 <getdata >scan1.dta", "", @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD) ; $DOS = Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & "echo ?DT | ncat 192.168.1.6 80 > scan1.dta & @CRLF", "", @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD) $DOS = Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & "data1.bat & @CRLF", "", @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD) but none save the data to scan1.dta
Run out of ideas so far...
If I am using a RunWait command to launch a batch file from within an AutoIt script, how can I pass a variable to said batch file so that the batch file can utilize said variable like in a %var% format? Thank you in advance.
I want to programmatically alter the structure of a large number of PDF which have different sizes and orientation, and come from different generators. To do this I need to be able to capture different parameters describing their layout. I use a console tool called pdfInfo (part of the xpdf public domain suite) which provides me with everything I need. The idea is first to run pdfInfo against my pdf file redirecting the console's output to a text file. And then to load and parse the text file to get the parameters I need. The only problem is that no output file is ever created. I've looked through the forums and saw a number of threads loosely related to this but none of the suggested solutions (like using StdoutRead) has worked for me. I should say maybe that I'm running Win10.
So here's the code that doesn't work:
$pdfInfo = "f:\pdfinfo.exe" $pdfTest = "f:\test.pdf" RunWait(chr(34) & $pdfInfo & " -box " & $pdfTest & " > f:\log.txt", "", @SW_HIDE) If you use in a console the command line:
f:\pdfinfo.exe -box f:\test.pdf > f:\log.txt
it works perfectly. But the piece of code above does not create the log.txt file. So any idea what I am doing wrong. Thanks for any help!
