How to make my script read a line, do a command, read the next line, do the same command, until there are no more lines in the file it has to read ?

Recommended Posts


So, I have little question.

I want to make it possible in my script that it reads a line in a TXT file, put that line in a variable and process a command with it, then read the next line and again put it in the variable (overwriting the old value) and doing the same command and so over and over again till end of the file it reads from (the TXT file)

How can I do that ?

That is what the example for FileReadLine does

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

; Check if file opened for reading OK
If $file = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")

; Read in lines of text until the EOF is reached
While 1
    $line = FileReadLine($file)
    If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop
    MsgBox(0, "Line read:", $line)
