Help with FileFindFirstFile & FileOpen

7 posts in this topic

Need some help as to why this isn't working properly. In the directory "\\192.168.100.1\c$\test" I've got many files, many what start with "T", I'm just interested in one file that'll start with TA. This TA file will probably have a file name of TA144.txt where if you look in the file at the end of the very first line of the file will be the version of the program 1.44. I'm looking to have the script read the file and tell me what the last 4 characters of the first line will be. Now, the filename might be TA145.txt if it's a newer version, and so on. So I need to be able to account for different file names, all of which will always have the version IN the file. Listed below is a simplified version of my script:

$search = FileFindFirstFile("\\192.168.100.1\c$\test\ta*.txt")
$filename = FileFindNextFile($search)
msgbox(0,"filename",$filename)
$file = FileOpen($filename, 0)
;$file = FileOpen("\\192.168.100.1\c$\test\ta*.txt",0)
msgbox(0,"file",$file)
$line = FileReadLine($file)
$output = StringRight($line, 4)
msgbox(0,"line",$output)

The problem appears to be the FileFindNextFile search function working with the fileopen function. Here's the result of the msgboxs:

Msgbox "filename" will say "TA144.txt"

Msgbox "file" will say "2"

Msgbox "line" will say "1.44"

First I'd like to say thanks for experimenting and testing before you actually post a question, that's the best way you learn. Moving on, based upon your last results:

Msgbox "filename" will say "TA144.txt"

Msgbox "file" will say "2"

Msgbox "line" will say "1.44"

The Msgbox for the filename and the Msgbox for the line succeeded. The "file" Msgbox was 2, but that's perfectly normal since what exactly does FileOpen return? A number used to see if the function succeeded or failed. So look up in the helpfile FileOpen and look at what it returns.

I did look in the help file.

Take a look at the first script I posted as that's the one I need working. Script #2 was modification to see where the problem lies. Unfortunately script #2 doesn't allow for searching for a filename, but instead relies on the exact filename.

You don't necessarily need a FileOpen to perform a FileRead, have you considered using something like this:

$line = FileReadLine($file, 1)
;Or
$line = FileRead($file)

Unfortunately I am not currently on my home computer to give you more accurate advice, hope it works :)

Perhaps try this, I came up with it quickly and it may contain errors since I do not have autoit here.

Local $path = "\\192.168.100.1\c$\test\"
$search = FileFindFirstFile($path & "ta*.txt")
$filename = FileFindNextFile($search)
$new = $path & $filename
$read = FileRead($new)         ;$read now contains the text in the file
$output = StringRight($read, 4)

Hope it works :)

192.168.100.1 looks like a network address, not like a host address. Are you sure this is the correct address of the host? In many cases, this network address is used by cable modems and such. Are you trying to access a modem or router? A host address doesn't have a 1 in the fourth octet that i am aware of.
