Declaring a value based on entry in text file

Recommended Posts


Have a script that will run in a loop. Script will have a variable in it called $fname. $fname is the name of the directory that the script will act on for some file conversions. Each time the script loops and starts over the &fname variable will need to change. Is it possible to pull the $fname value from a text file with all the directory names in it? In other words, I would have a text file with the following in it:

Dir 123

Dir 478

Dir 467

Dir 2000

The first time the script runs the $fname would be declared as Dir 123, the second time it would pull the value of Dir 478. and so on down the line. Is there a way to do this with a text file or otherwise? Thanks.

If it's an ini file in ini format.

Yep, filereadline did the trick. Script ended up looking something like:

$file = FileOpen("test.txt", 0)

While 1

$line = FileReadLine($file)

If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop

Then I just use the $line variable wherever I need it. The script continues to loop until the end of the file is reached. Awesome!!! It works. Thanks.
