Expanding Environment Vars

Recommended Posts

So lets say you are reading an INI file. You read an item that is "%ComSpec%". The AutoIt option ExpandEnvStrings does not effect this since it's read from a file. I know you could use EnvGet to get the variable. But what about if from the INI you read "%.%temp%.%comspec%.%bob%.%.%". Does anyone have a UDF to expand this?

Thanks

The first line is an example...

MsgBox(0, "", "%COMSPEC% = " & ParseEnvVar("%COMSPEC%"))

   Func ParseEnvVar($EnvVar)
       $var = StringMid($EnvVar, 2, StringLen($EnvVar) - 2)
       Return EnvGet($var)
   EndFunc

Thanks Slim, but that really dosn't help too much. I figured it out this morning when i sobered up. This function will expand all the environment variables in a string.

Func ExpandEnvVars($Cooked)
    Local $Split, $i, $Expanded
    $Split = StringSplit($Cooked,"%")
    
    For $i = 1 To $Split[0]
        $Expanded = EnvGet($Split[$i])
        If $Expanded <> "" Then
            $Cooked = StringReplace($Cooked,"%" & $Split[$i] & "%", $Expanded)
        EndIf
    Next

    Return $cooked
EndFunc

I'm pretty sure I don't want to know, but what in the world does your avatar show? An alien? :ph34r:


Who else would I be?
