StdOutRead corrupts binary data

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to read binary data from StdOut and write it to a file but it gets corrupted.

Maybe im doing something wrong or StdOutRead isn't supposed to work with binary input.

I tried various combinations with Binary() but without success.

Here's a sample:

#include <Constants.au3>

Dim $proc_Unrar

$fh_File01 = FileOpen("D:\OUT_STD.bin",18)

$proc_Unrar = Run("Unrar.exe p -inul D:\BinaryData.rar", "", "", $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)

While 1
    $buffer = StdoutRead($proc_Unrar)
    $err_StdoutRead = @error
    If $err_StdoutRead Then ExitLoop


MsgBox(0, "Debug", "Exiting...")

Ok the actual problem is the 0x00 hex value that doesn't get passed on.

Only thing i could think of is this:

$buffer = StdoutRead($proc_Unrar,1)
If $buffer = "" Then $buffer = Chr(0)

Well this isn't elegant or effective at all. Any other suggestions?
