Changing File

3 posts in this topic

Hi All,

New to AutoIt, quick question. I have a file with 5 lines, I want to read the file, and modify the fifth line? In Perl I would just pipe the file to an array, make a $counter, up the $counter until 5, then just append to the line.

I'm assuming the process is similar in AutoIt, can anyone give me the code and walk me through it?

Thanks.

Try the helpfile. FileOpen comes to mind.


Who else would I be?

Nevermind...I got it.

;** Variables

$count = 1

Dim $aArray[6]

;** Create Array

$file = FileOpen("c:\abc", 0)

While $count <= 5

$chars = FileReadLine($file)

If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop

$aArray[$count] = $chars

$count = $count + 1

Wend

fileclose("c:\abc")

;** Rewrite File

$count2 = 1

$file = FileOpen("c:\abc", 2)

while $count2 < $count

if $count2 = 5 then

FileWriteline($file, $aArray[$count2] & " New Text")

else

FileWriteline($file, $aArray[$count2])

endif

$count2 = $count2 + 1

Wend

fileclose("c:\abc")

Might not be the prettiest, but it works.
