I ones had the same trouble and then I did a utility called 'Au3Calibur' That can create libraries of excerps, no limits and it can import / export directly to clipboard, it has a show text window and can do a lot of things like show HTML, backup scripts, create function libary, scrap box well almost no limits - free to download...

Included code, installer/uninstaller scipt and a topics and can interface with SciTe and any other editors directly...

Download from site

I have so many "scriptlets" on my computer... that some times i cant find the one i am looking for by its title.au3...

Yup tight script Valuator, thx for sharing.

Does your title naming system bare a similarity to mine then?

i.e. test1.au3 test9898.au3 testasfsdf.au3 testazf43.au3 testbghh.au3 te1222.au3

ad infinitum, i am the worlds worst for file naming. Thank god for Recent Files.

I personally feel that scripts such as this (after adding plenty of comments), which are tightly coded

easy to follow and more importantly, functional are prime for inclusion in LXP's tutorial project, in the later chapters.

I have so many "scriptlets" on my computer... that some times i cant find the one i am looking for by its title.au3...

so i made this little script to search for words/phrases inside the scripts to find what i want

Hi, I like this too, I did have to revise line 47 as shown below before it would run. This was from inside Scite. I checked the toggle to make sure I was running the .100 beta.

I was a little surprised that it doesn't recurse sub-folders, nor would it check all drives if given "My Computer" as a starting point.

The code edit in BOLD didn't show very well so I put a row of = marks above and below it

i had seen that done before... and have used that type of scripting before, however i researched the file read and noticed this

per help

FileRead

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Read in a number of characters from a previously opened text file.

FileRead ( filehandle or "filename" [, count] )

Parameters

filehandle The handle of a file, as returned by a previous call to FileOpen. Alternatively you may use a string filename as the first parameter.

count [optional] The number of characters to read. Default read the entire file.

Thus, I negated the optional parameter

I knew the help file said the count is optional, but when I ran it from inside Scite, it errored on that line saying that there was an incorrect number of parameters. When I added the count, it ran with no errors reported.

On reading your response I put it back as you posted it, it still errors from inside Scite, but not when run from outside of Scite. Maybe Scite or the syntax checker is running a little behind the curve. Just to check, I compiled it with options and turned Au3Check on, it compiled and ran OK. it must be Scite.

FileRead() does have an error on anything I use without a count.

I ran this and it worked straight out of the box. With the exception of the double '\\' in the filenames.

Are you guys using the latest scite definitions?

I know for a fact mine is uptodate I updated mine earlier this week & the webpage shows latest revision as Dec2005, but the files were in fact newer than that.

This is okay, if yall could get it to search every file under C:\, it would be a lot more useful.... but still, good job on the script.

Hmm... It still doesn't work. When I set the folder to C:\ and search for a file that does exist it says it doesn't and when I put it on a specific folder with a file that does exist, it doesn't do anything. Any suggestoins?

Still great, having used it more and experimented a bit, one or more issues/suggestions.

  • Due to path length and that I couldn't find a Horiz. scroll style that would work on a List, I widened the GUI and List by 300 pixels.
  • The GUI being wider, I made the buttons wider too so their text would fit better.
  • It would be cool if the path and search string boxes were both Combo boxes (with a wide dropdown width on the one for the path) that remembered the last, Oh, say 15 or 20 paths and search strings.
  • A group of Check boxes that would let the user to search 1 or more or any combination of <AU3>, <INI>, or <TXT> files would be nice too. You could let the user redefine the <INI> and <TXT> extensions in an INI if they wanted specify othe text files to search.
  • Since some people want to search an entire drive, it might be a good idea to put up a message while getting the filelist, and a different message while processing the file.
  • I made an altered copy to search the Scite properties files. While I was doing that it seemed to fail if the search text included a trailing or embedded period, but it succeeded with a leading period. I can see how with com objects that could be a problem.
  • If the path control had multiselect you could let the user search multiple paths.
Have you ever compared the time difference between the AutoIt file search and the Dir command? It would be really cool if someone wrote an assembler or C++ function to read the FAT instead of enumerating the drive. That is waay beyond me but the assembler version at least, is blindingly fast, course it can have no bugs either without possible havoc.

The list above is longer that I expected, but it shouldn't take more than a couple hours to add the functionality, right. :lmao:;)

Is it not more usefull if you can search for *.jpg or *.txt and etc...

Or search for test.* so that it search for all filetype with test... test.jpg test.txt etc...

So... how would you search for a word or phrase inside a pic?? (.bmp or .jpg)
