findstr alternative?

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

I guess you guys are familiar with the "findstr" command under xp, but I was wondering if there was a function (or someone who wrote a UDF) like this in AutoIT... (preferably regular expression capable)

Need it to search for given strings in all/selected files in a given folder. The "find" command is too limited/slow and "findstr" isn't available on every machine...

Any suggestion welcome! Thanx in advance!

Something like:

?

If they both work, I would assume that the first one would be much faster.

Thanx, but the first one still needs "findstr"... and that isn't available on all machines...

I didn't even pay attention to it Scribble... I just had remembered seeing it when I saw the post.
