binary data replace by offset

Recommended Posts

Hi, im new there and trying to learn how autoit works.

I have files that contains some data (hex) i want to one-click replace , looks like:

FF F0 0F FF F0 0F 06 00 06 00 AE 08 2A 1A 5A 2B 
FC 33 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 B8 4D 45 00 FF FF 
C8 00 00 FF 96 00 00 FF 96 00 00 FF 00 00 00 FF 
00 00 00 FF FF FF FF FF 00 00 00 FF 00 00 00 00 
EF E0 1F D8 D7 28 FF F0 0F FF F0 0F CC C3 3C 41

script must replace string from 0x24 till 0x2F ( 960000FF960000FF000000FF )  with  FFF00FFFF00FFFF00FFFF00F.

each file have different data, before and after mentioned adresses , there is no rows etc. so editing possible only by offset.

Ive been trying to use FileOpen but it erases  data before setted position or after

 $FO_APPEND (1) = Write mode (append to end of file)
    $FO_OVERWRITE (2) = Write mode (erase previous contents)

help please

Did you try the FileOpen with the Binary option?

$FO_BINARY (16) = Force binary mode (See Remarks).


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Func Example()
    ; Create a constant variable in Local scope of the filepath that will be read/written to.
    Local Const $sFilePath = @ScriptDir & '\test.txt'

    ; Open the file for read/write access.
    Local $hFileOpen = FileOpen($sFilePath, $FO_BINARY)
    If $hFileOpen = -1 Then
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "An error occurred when reading/writing the file.")
        Return False

    ; Retrieve the current position in the file.
    Local $iFilePos = FileGetPos($hFileOpen)

    ; Now, adjust the position to the beginning.
    FileSetPos($hFileOpen, 33, $FILE_BEGIN)

   ; Write some data.
    FileWrite($hFileOpen, "ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ" & @CRLF)

    ; Display the contents of the file.
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", FileRead($hFileOpen))

    ; Now, adjust the position back to the previous position.
    FileSetPos($hFileOpen, 0, $iFilePos)

    ; Close the handle returned by FileOpen.

    ; Delete the temporary file.

    Return True
EndFunc   ;==>Example

With $FO_BINARY nothing happens with targeted file at all
