Is there a function like "FileInsLine($file,$LineCount,$insLine)" ?

12 posts in this topic

Hello,

I want to add a line into an INF file just after a section begins.

Searching the line, where "[sECTION]" shows up is easy.

My idea to insert a line would be to do a 2nd run, reading the original file, write it out to a dummy file, until I hit the "[section]", then write my "This line is to be inserted" to the dummy file and then read/write the rest of the original file till EOF, close both and to delete the original file, then copy over the dummy one.

This looks not too nice to me, so I want to ask, if there is a function like FileInsLine([file,LineCont,LineString) ?

Also there will be some checking necessary: Does the file exist? Can it be written to? Is the line number given valid? ...

There are sooo many au3 extras coded by the people here that the chances might be high I just will miss it :">

Thanks, regards, Rudi.

_FileReplaceLine("Test.ini", "[Section]", "New Line", 0)

Func _FileReplaceLine($sFile, $sOldLine, $sNewLine, $iMode=0)
    Local $aArray = StringSplit(FileRead($sFile), @LF), $ReplStr
    If Not IsArray($aArray) Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    
    Local $hFilew = FileOpen($sFile, 2), $LF = @LF
    If $hFilew = -1 Then Return SetError(2, 0, 0)
    For $i = 1 To UBound($aArray) - 1
        If $iMode <> 0 Or ($iMode = 0 And $aArray[$i] = $sOldLine) Then $aArray[$i] = StringReplace($aArray[$i], $sOldLine, $sNewLine)
        If $i = UBound($aArray) - 1 Then $LF = ""
        FileWrite($hFilew, $aArray[$i] & $LF)
    Next
    FileClose($hFilew)
    Return 1
EndFunc

If you use 1 as last parameter, then will be preformed a standard replacement in whole file.

Hello,

thanks for your reply! Yes, this looks very good. Is this function included in some public AU3 colletion? Which one?

May I ask some questions on that code?

_FileReplaceLine("Test.ini", "[Section]", "New Line", 0)

Func _FileReplaceLine($sFile, $sOldLine, $sNewLine, $iMode=0)
    Local $aArray = StringSplit(FileRead($sFile), @LF), $ReplStroÝ÷ Øb²z-­ê®·¶!yÉ¢°,V¬Áée¬,W(½êÛ¢ØS+*ºl¦X­)^+­¬ªºpjDZiËeËZ´²Z()à~ÚºÚ"µÍRYÝÐ^J   ÌÍØP^JH[]Ù]ÜK
BBSØØ[    ÌÍÚ[]ÈH[SÜ[    ÌÍÜÑ[KoÝ÷ Ù8b±¶¬Æ¥(¬mêÚ²)àý»azâ)Úø¥z¸ Ò7öhî²Ü(׫x!£baz¸¬h ÖÞ¶â©eËdYwöØ^¢¸ v¥~)^jëh×6 Local $LF = @LF
    If $hFilew = -1 Then Return SetError(2, 0, 0)
    For $i = 1 To UBound($aArray) - 1
        If $iMode <> 0 Or ($iMode = 0 And $aArray[$i] = $sOldLine) Then $aArray[$i] = StringReplace($aArray[$i], $sOldLine, $sNewLine)
        If $i = UBound($aArray) - 1 Then $LF = ""
        FileWrite($hFilew, $aArray[$i] & $LF)
    Next
    FileClose($hFilew)
    Return 1
EndFunc

This is the part I was looking for: With a little change I'm at my goal: $iMode = 2 ->insert before, $iMode = insert after searched line.

Thanks a lot, Rudi.

Thanks a lot, Rudi.

If you ever need code, you can look at the Examples section of this forum, the download section (which should be in my sig) or even Big_Daddy's Snippet Database. In comming months, I will be releasing a UDF repository, which I have slowly been working on.

I'm not really sure on that part.

@LF = A line feed (Chr(10))

@CR = Carrige Return (Chr(13))

@CRLF = @CR + @LF

Maybe will help you understand, because I don't see if it would or not. As far as I know it might?

Yes. This does erase the previous file. To work that out, I take you looked at FileOpen in the helpfile? You could try to change the flags, or instead, write to a new file.

Glad to hear you reached your goal <_<

No, i wrote it specialy for you :P

It is not required to check for @CRLF as well? Does @LF cover both?

Basicly @LF is always part of new line in files, but the @CRLF not always can be present, so i think that is better to use @LF to be sure <_<

This basically is erasing the original file, right? :) I'm just wondering how high the risk might be to finally 'kill' the original file...

The risk is always there, but you can always make an temporary backup and then delete it after seccess :) (FileCopy($sFile, $SsFile & ".bak") and FileDelete($sFile & ".bak")). Edited by MsCreatoR

If you ever need code, you can look at the Examples section of this forum, [snip]

The autoit3lib installer is broken, as stated on the download page: It's complaining a to low version number of Autoit3.

The installer succeeds, when going to the registry, HKLM\SW\Autoit v3\autoit, Version, and changing the value to what the installer is searching for.

Who might put that hint in the download page beside autoit3lib installer?

Just for excercise I wrote this:

(propably not too good code, but working for me :-) )

Dim $VersionOK = False
Dim $RefArray, $Limit, $i

$RefArray = StringSplit("3.2.4.9", ".")

$result = RegRead("hklm\software\autoit v3\autoit", "Version") ; no checking done to see if autoit3 is installed at all!


$VerArray = StringSplit($result, "v")
If UBound($VerArray) > 1 Then 
    $VerArray = StringSplit($VerArray[$VerArray[0]], ".")
Else
    MsgBox(0,"Unexpected Version","Can't handle your version number: ")
EndIf


If $RefArray[0] <= $VerArray[0] Then
    $Limit = $RefArray [0]
Else
    $Limit = $VerArray[0]
EndIf

For $i = 1 To $Limit
    If $VerArray[$i] > $RefArray[$i] Then
        $VersionOK = True
        ExitLoop
    Else
        If $RefArray[$i] = $VerArray[$i] Then ; this level of version is the same, continue checking...
            $VersionOK = True
        Else
            $VersionOK = False
            ExitLoop
        EndIf
    EndIf
Next



If $VersionOK Then
    RegWrite("hklm\software\autoit v3\autoit", "Version", "REG_SZ", "v3.2.4.9")
    MsgBox(64, "Version ""fix"" done", "Now you can start the auto3lib.exe installer. Wait clicking OK here, until auto3lib installer has finished!")
    RegWrite("hklm\software\autoit v3\autoit", "Version", "REG_SZ", $result)
    MsgBox(64, "Done", "Your original Version information has been restored: " & $result)
Else
    MsgBox(64, "Too old version", "Your Autoit3 Version is too old: " & $result & @LF & "Has to be v3.2.4.9 or above")
EndIf

Why not just use the build-in IniWrite() as suggested by Bert ?

<_<

Because I didn't get "INI write" to be "IniWrite()" ?? <doh!>

Thanks, Rudi.

Well, one reason (for me) is that IniWrite/Read not support "UTF-8 with Signature" encoding <_< Edited by MsCreatoR

Nice <_< So it was just woth to install it on several machines here :) (as of writing these lines it wasn't fixed...)

My code of course is pretty clumsy(?), but it's doing a correct version check ;-)

Thanks for the info, Rudi.
