Writing first line of a text file

6 posts in this topic

I'd like to do a search and replace in a text file dependent on what's in the first line of this file.

This works nicely with FileReadLine($SourceFile, 1).

But at the end of the operation I want to update the first line of the text file. FileWriteLine works different as it only appends a line at the end of the file; is there a way to write the first line?

But when I get this right, _ReplaceStringInFile can't especially write the first line if it doesn't know what's in it at first?

_FileWriteToLine should do wat u want

That or:

$hFile = 'FileName and Location'
$sRead = FileReadLine($hFile, 1)
$sReplacement = $sRead & 'Something I want to add'
_ReplaceStringInFile($hFile, $sRead, $sReplacement, 0, 0)
