FileRead return line#

4 posts in this topic

Is there a way to use the fileread command to read a particular line of text then return the line number.

In the case of the text below, I would like a command to find "[daterange]" then return a line number in that file.

Then I can take the line number and add one to use the FileReadLine("filename", line) command to effectively read the next line of text which is the actual date range.

[daterange]

You might try _FileReadToArray instead of filereadline, then just search the array


SciTE for AutoItDirections for Submitting Standard UDFs

 

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

I agree on the array, but for sh**s and giggles, I decided to try this (will work only if it's the first word of the line you are looking for):

$Fread = StringStripCR(FileRead(@DesktopDir & '\MyOwnWorkBreather.txt'))
StringReplace(StringLeft($Fread, StringInStr($Fread, @LF & '[daterange]')), @LF, '')
If @extended Then MsgBox(64, 'Info', 'Found on line: ' & @extended + 1)

Edit:

In the case of the text below I would like to open the text file and search for the text string "Number of marc records processed: " then extract the rest of the line.

Can autoit do something like this?
