split one line into N Lines

Recommended Posts

Hi there 

when I query this API the result is a single line of N characters.

my goal is to get a file with several lines and not only one,

can you help me to cut this line according to a particular condition (like a character of end of line for example) ? 

my actual code 


#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <file.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Local $test = 'https://min-api.cryptocompare.com/data/all/coinlist'
Local $1 = InetRead($test)
Local $iBytesRead = @extended
Local $Tempfile1 = "c:\temp\tempfile.csv"

Local $iFileExists = FileExists($Tempfile1)

If $iFileExists Then



FileWrite($Tempfile1, $1)

Local $tt = 0
Local $g = 0


Func start()
    $g = $g + 1
    $count = _FileCountLines($Tempfile1)
    $File = FileOpen($Tempfile1, 0)
    While 1
        $line = FileReadLine($File)
        If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop
        MsgBox(64, 'number of lines', $count, 0)
        MsgBox(64, 'line content', $line, 0)

        $tt = $tt + 1

EndFunc   ;==>start

These might help


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 need to know how to

- list all my json entry ( like 42 )

- Get specific value of 42 entry like Name


    "Data": {
        "42": {
            "Id": "4321",
            "Url": "\/coins\/42\/overview",
            "ImageUrl": "\/media\/12318415\/42.png",

            "TotalCoinsFreeFloat": "N\/A",
            "SortOrder": "34",
            "Sponsored": false,
            "IsTrading": true

#include "json.au3"
#include "BinaryCall.au3"

Local $Tempfile1 = "c:\temp\tempfile.csv"
Local $Json = BinaryToString(InetRead("https://min-api.cryptocompare.com/data/all/coinlist"), 4)
Local $Obj = Json_Decode($Json)
Local $result = Json_Encode($Obj, $JSON_PRETTY_PRINT)


Func start()

    FileWrite($Tempfile1, $result)

EndFunc   ;==>start

I know you have moved on to another UDF but the StringSplit() function is really dynamic in how it can be used and isn't limited to splitting by a single character.




StringSplit($YourString, "TotalCoinSupply", $STR_ENTIRESPLIT)


It's mainly just finding something to split it into useful data for you.

Here are a couple of my guesses of what you actually need or want.

#include <Array.au3>

Local $sData = BinaryToString(InetRead('https://min-api.cryptocompare.com/data/all/coinlist'))

; Replace the colon before '{"Id"' with @CRLF.
ConsoleWrite(StringRegExpReplace($sData, ':({"Id")', @CRLF & "\1") & @CRLF) 


; Make a 1D array out of all characters between double quotes.
Local $aArray = StringRegExp($sData, '(?i)"([^"]*)"', 3)
