Read Text file then write to text file in one line

Recommended Posts


I have a txt file with a list of ips about 200 with one ip address on one line.


I need to read the text file and get all the ips then right to a new text file a string that contains this text " sourceIP = '$IP from txt file' or destinationIP = '$IP from txt file' and so on.  It needs to be a one line string because I am using the output in a AQL statement.

My output is not a one line string.


#include <Array.au3>
#include <File.au3>

$IPs = FileReadToArray("C:\Temp\S2S.txt")

For $i = 0 to UBound($IPs) -1
    FileWrite("C:\Temp\output.txt", "or sourceIP = " & "'" & $IPs[$i] & "'" & " or destinationIP = " & "'" & $IPs[$i] & "'" & " ")

Perhaps just build your string as you go, and then FileWrite? Or am I misunderstanding you?

$aIPs = FileReadToArray("<file>")
$sString = "sourceIP = '" & $aIPs[0] & " "

For $a = 1 To UBound($aIPs) - 1
    If Mod($a, 2) Then
        $sString &= "or destinationIP = '" & $aIPs[$a] & "' "
        $sString &= "or sourceIP = '" & $aIPs[$a] & "' "

ConsoleWrite($sString & @CRLF)
