FileDeleteLine($file, $line) and related?


Recommended Posts

I want to be able to, using File***(***) commands...

- insert text at some line in a file

- get a count for the number of lines in a file without traversing the whole thing

- delete a line in a file

- overwrite a line in a file

There a script that can do this sort of thing?

well for numbers 1, 3, and 4 look at _FileWriteToLine in my sig, as for counting lines look at _FileCountLines in the help file



;For deleting line 3 of a text file
_FileWriteToLine("c:\myfile.txt", 3, "", 1)
;For overwriting line 3 of a text file
_FileWriteToLine("c:\myfile.txt", 3, "My Replacement For Line 3", 1)
;for inserting text at line 3
_FileWriteToLine("c:\myfile.txt", 3, "Insert this where line 3 is and line 3 will move down 1 as will the rest of the lines", 0)

AutoIt Console written in C#. Write au3 code right at the console :D_FileWriteToLineWrite to a specific line in a file.My UDF Libraries: MySQL UDF Library version 1.6 MySQL Database UDF's for AutoItI have stopped updating the MySQL thread above, all future updates will be on my SVN.

Also for huge files if too slow with usual AutoIt, consider;

1. _DeleteFoundLineDOS($s_file,$s_Exclude) (see doscoms link in signature)

2. WriteLineSQLSimple.au3 (see SQL UDF link in signature)

Best, Randall
