how to delete a specific part of a line from a text file - (Moved)

Recommended Posts

Hello guys
i need a little help with this scipt, i already managed to delete the blank lines from a text file but i also need to delete a part of the remaining lines.
example: "black tide: show me the way | 90003", I want to stay like this "| 90003"

#include <Array.au3>
Sleep (2000)
Local $rFile = (@ScriptDir & "\playlist.txt")
Local $aFile = FileReadToArray($rFile)
Local $wFile = FileOpen(@ScriptDir & "\playlist.txt",2)

For $i = 0 To UBound($aFile) -1 Step +1
    If $aFile[$i] <> "" Then


Lmp.au3 playlist.txt

Something like this if your file is to big to read then use filewriteline to write to a new file

stringmid and stringinstr can help to find first |


$hFile = FileOpen(@ScriptDir & "\playlist.txt", 0)

If $hFile = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "FileOpen failed check your file for existence")

;~ Read in lines of text until EOF
While 1
    $txtLine = FileReadLine($hFile)
    If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop
    If @error Then MsgBox(0, "Error", "FileReadLine returned @error to: " & @error)
    if ($txtLine <> "") then
        ;~ its a blank line so do nothing
