Searching a File for Keywords

3 posts in this topic

Hi everybody :geek:

I'm new to AutoIt and i've a little question.

I tried to open a File and then search for some Keywords and then getting the Text that is after this Keywords.

Example:

textextext = text

Hello=Fanta.exe

textextext = text

moretext = text

Hello=Needs.exe

text= text

othercrap = text

Hello = Help.exe

The script should search the Keyword Hello and then saving the Text Fanta.exe, Needs.exe, Help.exe ..

Can somebody Help me? :o

I did once somethink similar to that (tried making a small chatbot but it has some odd bugs...)..

I tried somethink like this:

#include <file.au3>

$file = FileOpen("C:\myfile.ini", 0)

If $file = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")
    Exit
EndIf

...

But somehow if i checked $file it was = 1 :huggles:

It would be nice if someone could give me a hint or help me ;) (like what i have to look for)

Thx :sorcerer:

Check out the help file for IniRead. That should do what you're looking for.

Do you mean like this? Maybe not exactly what your trying to do but you can modify it I'm sure

$File = FileOpen ("MyTextfile.txt",0)

If $file = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")
    Exit
EndIf

While 1
    
    $line = FileReadLine ( $File)
    if @error = -1 then ExitLoop
    If Stringinstr ($line, "MyString") then FileWriteLine ("MyNewfile.txt", $Line)
    WEnd
    FileClose ($File)
