From batch to autoit

Recommended Posts


I guys, in my batch file I use this way to read variables from file .

copy setcartella2.bat + cartella2.txt $tmp$.bat > nul
call $tmp$.bat
del $tmp$.bat
del tempfile

del %cartella2%\*.txt

I want to translate this script into autoit script, but I'm very noob!!!!!

$cartella2 = FileOpen("cartella2.txt", 0)
$cartella =  FileReadLine($cartella2)
filedelete ($cartella"*.txt")

Obviously this code doesn't work.... who want to help me? :)

Well, $tmp$.bat doesn't translate well. I can't tell if you mean to have literal dollar signs in the file name.

Here's something at least similar:

$TmpBat = "C:\Temp\Temp.bat"
FileCopy("setcartella2.bat", $TmpBat, 1) ; 1 = overwrite
$hFile = FileOpen($TmpBat, 1) ; 1 = append
FileWrite($hFile, FileRead("cartella2.txt"))
RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $TmpBat)
$iOptSav = Opt("ExpandEnvStrings", 1)
Opt("ExpandEnvStrings", $iOptSav)

Look each of those commands up in the help file and see what they are doing and why those particular options are used. Even if it's not exactly what you want, it will help you figure it out.
