file read

8 posts in this topic

Hi Guys!

I just started autoit and i am sorry i did not discover it earlier! nice, nice!

My question is:

I want to read in this sort of text file:

100,300,200,7200,3600

500,100,1,45,2300

Can I use fileread and tell autoit to read the variable till the , as one variable?

I do not want to use COUNT because COUNT would be changing all the time (I do not want to use 0100 or 0001)

Anyone?

Thanks!!!

Thanks you all! it works!

I made this out of it.

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

$chars = FileRead($file, 1)

If @error = -1 Then MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")

While 1

$line = FileReadLine($file)

If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop

$Array = StringSplit($line, ",")

plukken()

$doorgaan=MsgBox(0, "", "next line??", 0)

if $doorgaan=0 Then ExitLoop

WEnd

MsgBox(0, "Finished!", "No more data to read")

FileClose($file)

Exit

func plukken()

MsgBox(0, "A=", $Array[1])

MsgBox(0, "B=", $Array[2])

MsgBox(0, "C=", $Array[3])

MsgBox(0, "D=", $Array[4])

MsgBox(0, "T=", $Array[5])

EndFunc

THANKS!

e10 ... next time use [ Autoit] [ /Autoit] tags (without the space)

and it will look like

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

$chars = FileRead($file, 1)
If @error = -1 Then MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")

While 1
$line = FileReadLine($file)
If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop
$Array = StringSplit($line, ",")
plukken()
$doorgaan=MsgBox(0, "", "next line??", 0)
if $doorgaan=0 Then ExitLoop
WEnd
MsgBox(0, "Finished!", "No more data to read")
FileClose($file)
Exit

func plukken()
MsgBox(0, "A=", $Array[1])
MsgBox(0, "B=", $Array[2])
MsgBox(0, "C=", $Array[3])
MsgBox(0, "D=", $Array[4])
MsgBox(0, "T=", $Array[5])
EndFunc

Cheers.

I believe this reads the file a whole lot simpler:

#include <Array.au3>
$text = FileRead("d:\test.txt")
$text = StringReplace($text,Chr(13),"")
$array = StringSplit($text,","&Chr(10))
_ArrayDisplay($array)

But it still excludes your Plukken() function. Since you seem to want to do it line based and all lines contain 5 numbers, you could try:

#include <Array.au3>
$text = FileRead("d:\test.txt")
$text = StringReplace($text, Chr(13), "")
$array = StringSplit($text, "," & Chr(10))
_ArrayDisplay($array, "Full list of read numbers from file")

$amount = $array[0] / 5; the 0th element is the total number of read lines, since you seem to always read lines with 5 numbers this should be ok
Dim $aData[$amount][5]; double-dimmed array that can contain 5 data pieces per element

For $elements = 1 To $amount
    For $elementPieces = 1 To 5
        $aData[$elements-1][$elementPieces-1] = $array[$elements * 5 - 5 + $elementPieces]
    Next
Next
_ArrayDisplay($aData, "Elements read")

/edit: my test file d:\test.txt was:

1,2,3,4,5

12,23,34,45,56

123,234,345,456,567

As being already told by SadBunny, this forum rocks due to the sort of people who are here!

Makes a new dummy feel welcome......

Thanks a lot you all.

SadBunny:

I like the new challange you gave me but it will make the script for me only shorter, and not more easy to handle.

I need to compare every variable between the , and then adjust through the right pins on a parallel port positions of stepper motors.

I would like to keep a,b,c,d and t seperate.

(IF YOU DON'T MIND) hahaha :)

O, and ehmm, thanks for a new adiction!

BTW, serial port programming sucks compared to parallel. Parallel is easy!!!

Lots to learn, eager to do.

Ok, no problem :) Just thought I'd give you another angle of approach to your situation, codewise. You might want to think about 5 arrays then, if you do need the list (for logging and/or listing purposes perhaps), just $a[x], $b[x], $c[x] etc..

Good luck anyway!
