Pipe commands to compiled .exe

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to pipe a command to an AutoIT .exe

eg: dir /b | myautoitexe.exe

It works if i run myautoitexe.exe param param, but does not seem to accept piped params.

TIA

I'm not sure if that can be done - but here is a free bump.

Welcome to the forum.

Thanks.

I hope it can't be done, coz I've gone a whole new direction to workaround it !

Oooh! Good question! I'd be interested to know if you can do something like:

dir | find ".txt" | MyAutoItScript.exe

:)

piped commands write to the stdin of the proccess they are piping to. Somthing simple like-

$a=""
while 1
    $a=ConsoleRead(512)
    if $a<>"" then MsgBox(0,"Read",$a)
WEnd

This will show, in a messagebox, the data that was piped to it (after it's compiled of course)

...and where were you back in April? :-)

That was easier than I thought.

Go to the command line and run:

DIR | FIND /I ".exe" | Test.exe

Sweet! :)
