Hello Sir, 

While searching for the solution to my problem, I have just gone through some of your old post. 

My name is Alok Arora 

Email id is *snip*

I am writing a code to store logs for each script I run. This I did by using FileWriteLog function and it is successfully storing logs in txt file. 

Now, I have to work on to read the log file and if any script has been mistakenly clicked twice in a day script will pop up a message that task already done for the day by verifying entries in the log file. 

I have the logic for it.. 

I mean a variable will read the log file and will search for the entry and will perform action if entry found or not. 

I believe for reading the file I can write a code like

$i =fileread("logfile.txt")

Now I am stuck on how to compare the log entry in log file. 

Can you please help me in this?

Seems your memory isn't very good or are you simply ignoring me?
We will help you when you simply provide your script that isn't working so we can understand what you are trying and where it is failing.
Post another post like this, and I will simply ban the account.

      Hello guys.  It's been awhile since I shared something. So today I want to share my last project.
      What's Loga?
      Loga is a simple logging library to keep track of code with an integrated console.
      Common log levels. Integrated console. Multiple instances. Custom color and font for each instance log level. Define output format with macros. Conditional and occasional Logging. Easy to use. Basic Usage:
      #include "..\Loga.au3" ;This are some of the default settings: ;Default log level $LOGA_LEVEL_TRACE ;output format: {Symbol}{LogIndex} {LevelName} {LongDateTime} {Message} ;Log to File is enabled. ;Log file name format: YYYYMMDDHHMM-Loga-InstanceIndex.log ;Custom Console is disabled by default. ;By default log to STDOUT. _LogaTrace("I'm Trace") _LogaDebug("I'm Debug") _LogaInfo("I'm Info") _LogaWarn("I'm Warn") _LogaError("I'm Error") _LogaFatal("I'm Fatal")  
      More examples here.
      Check Loga on GitHub.
      Loga Latest Release v1.0.2.

      I'm writing a recursive decent parser in Autoit!
      The programming language i'm making is called HighLevel.
      I'm doing this for learning purposes, because it's fun and because I can implement it into my other project:
      Fullscreen Console With custom programming language!
      It's not easy...

      In Autoit you don't have objects like in Java or Visual Basic, so I had to figure out a way to still convert the code to an abstract syntax tree.
      I used nested array's and array based dictionary's instead of objects.
      The code is still very dirty and I need to make a lot of modifications but if you're careful with testing you'll see what it can do already.
      Console window
      Because this code eventually will get implemented into my console project I crafted a nice little console window (with a custom sci-fi looking theme, yeah i was a little bored haha).
      {ESC} is your panic button for now, it terminates the script completely.
      If you get an error while opening a script the text will turn red.
      To minimize it press the blue button, to close it use the red one, to drag the gui just grab it on one of the sides.
      The console window will display what you write to it with your "HighLevel-script" and some additional information:

      How to test it:
      Download: HighLevel.Au3, Debug.Au3 (includes a function to display nested arrays for debugging), GUI.bmp (for the console)
      Compile the Autoit code to EXE.
      The GUI.bmp must be in the same folder as the EXE file!
      Write a HighLevel-script (text file) and drag it into the compiled autoit-exe.
      The custom made little console window will pop up in the left top corner of your screen and your HighLevel-script (the text file) will be interpreted and executed.
      The Language:
      exit script:     Abort      show / hide the console:     Show     Hide      write to/clear the console:     Write 'this is a ''string''!'     Clear variables: test_var_1 = 123 some_list = ['a', 5, true] some_list[1] = 3 math = 1 + 2 * 3 / 4 - -5 & test_var beep (under construction):     Beep F, optD wait X seconds:     Wait X      Messages:     Message 'Hello World!'      move/click the mouse:     Move X, Y     Click      send keys (under construction):     Send 'HighLevel', True      if's:     If false     ElseIf true         # this part will run     Else     End subs:     Sub X         # do stuff     End     Call X      for loops:     For X = 1 to 10         # X iterates     End Values:     Input 'Give me input'     Random     YesNo 'yes or no' operators:     + - * / & > = ! < ( ) And Not Or  
      Example script:
      # my first HighLevel script message 'Hello World!' message 'Lets write to the console...' clear # clear the console... list = ['a', 16, true] for i = 0 to 2     write list[i]     wait 1 end sub test     if YesNo 'would you like to quit?'         message 'Goodbye!'         abort     else         write 1 + 2 * 3 & ' math!'     end end call test

      About logs, it is a few years that I drag a couple of functions between one script and another, so finally I decided to write down my first UDF to optimize my scripts.
      Main focus is to keep it simple, so you have just to include _gollog.au3 and call:
      GOLLOG("a line of text"), and start logging.
      If your script is without GUI the log will be only written to disk, if you have a GUI you can initialize an edit control :
      GOLLOG_INI($guititle, $left, $top, $width, $height)
      and GOLLOG() will write your log both in an auto generated EDIT control in your $guititle GUI and disk; also GOLLOG_INI() will AUTO-create a GUI (if it doesn't exist $guititle) with a screen log if you want !
      The majority of options (colors, fonts, position of logs ) are default-defined, but you can initialize them with GOLLOG_INI(), is all documented in the UDF and partially in the example.
      There is also a function:
      to ZIP logs older than $n months, based on the UDF (also included in attachments) _zip.udf by @wraithdu
      the UDF code:

      Some options are a bit weird, because I kept retro-compatibility with all my scripts, removing functions and adding the UDF...

      I have another AutoIT script making a Log file 

      Sample of Log file:
      2016/08/22 12:44:18 > Process: [RUNNING] [ACTIVE] 2016/08/22 12:48:35 > Process: [WAS NOT RUNNING] 2016/08/22 13:40:00 > Process: [FAILED] 2016/08/22 14:01:10 > Process: [WAS NOT RUNNING] I am looping through the Log file for  the word "FAILED"
      I then want to get all lines that have "FAILED" and get their TIME
      My Current code to get this far:
      If FileExists($fileLog) Then $contents = FileRead($fileLog) If @error Then MsgBox(0, 'File Error', $fileLog & ' could not be read.') Else For $i = 1 To _FileCountLines($fileLog) $result = StringInStr($contents,$search) If $result >= 1 Then $filteredLine = FileReadLine($fileLog,$i) If StringInStr($filteredLine,$search) Then ConsoleWrite($filteredLine & @CRLF) ; this gets me the results I want sans the time parse EndIf Else ConsoleWrite( $search & " not found!" & @CRLF) EndIf Next EndIf EndIf For this part:
      If StringInStr($filteredLine,$search) Then ConsoleWrite($filteredLine & @CRLF) ; this gets me the results I want sans the time parse EndIf OUTPUT: 2016/08/22 13:40:00 > Process: [FAILED] I dont understand how I read the time in that output?
      I have tried _DateTimeFormat - Dont think this applies 
      Tried _DateDiff - I dont have a the date yet so this doesnt work
      Would love if someone could tell me if I am thinking is the wrong direction and possibly lead me down the correct path to light side of the force
