How to use FileReadToArray to read a txt file?


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I am new to array. I am trying to read a txt and extract first line and all line after "Application:" (see attached) in to another txt file and then import in excel. There are thousands of same type of file generate from psinfo for indiviual machine on the network. Is there a good example of how to use? Please advise.

Tried reading the file.au3 but still cannot figure out.

Thanks

Daniel

You can try this, at least it might point you in a direction.

$file="123.txt"
$x=Stringsplit(StringReplace(FileRead($file,FileGetSize($file)),@lf,""),@cr)

$start=0
for $i=1 to $x[0]
if $start=1 then msgbox(1,"",$x[$i])
if StringLeft($x[$i],13)="Applications:" then $start=1
next

$x[] is the array, I have it mark $start when it finds your first word.
