getting run() output

3 posts in this topic

Hello, I'm having trouble getting output from run() ing a command that takes quite a while to get it's output. My problem is that I have a slow internet connection, am downloading a large file that errors out after a while and so I want to script it so I don't have to restart it over and over again.

I'm trying to cycle through a series of web sites to retrieve a file, only going to the next site if a previous one fails. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

#include <Constants.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

dim $array[9], $i, $bt3b

$Array[0]= "//ftp://ftp.heanet.ie/mirrors/backtrack/bt3b141207.rar"
$Array[1]= "//ftp://ftp.cc.uoc.gr/mirrors/linux/backtrack/bt3b141207.rar"
$Array[2]= "//http://ftp.cc.uoc.gr/mirrors/linux/backtrack/bt3b141207.rar"

while $i < 9

  While 1
    $line = StdoutRead($bt3b)
   ;possible errors

I have something similar for an auto-update program I wrote.

;Generic Download Plugin Template v3 Update 10/9/2007

;The following command is only for execution of this plugin directly, for testing

;Include functions for log file
#include <file.au3>

;Don't change this path as it is harcoded in Assembler
Const $DEST = @ScriptDir & "\Files\"
Const $LOG = @ScriptDir & "\plugin.log"

;MsgBox(0,"",$DEST & @CRLF & $LOG)

;Retrieve mirrors
$MIRRORS = IniReadSection (@ScriptDir & "\config.ini", "Mirrors" )

;Retrieve filename from first mirror
$SPLITMIRROR = StringSplit ( $MIRRORS[1][1], "/")
$FILENAME = $SPLITMIRROR[$SPLITMIRROR[0]]

;Attempt download if file is not found
If NOT FileExists ($DEST & $FILENAME) Then

    _FileWriteLog($LOG,"File not found: " & $FILENAME)

    ;Loop through mirrors
    For $i = 1 To $MIRRORS[0][0]
        _FileWriteLog($LOG,"Trying: " & $MIRRORS[$i][1])
        
        ;Set default window mode
        $SW = @SW_SHOW
        If ($CmdLine[0] AND $CmdLine[1] = "S") Then $SW = @SW_HIDE
        
        ;Download file via cygwin wget, run silent if parameter is found
        ;$EXITCODE = RunWait("wget.exe -N " & $MIRRORS[$i][1], $DEST, $SW)
        $result = InetGet ($MIRRORS[$i][1], $DEST & $FILENAME)
        
        ;If download successful break loop
        If $result Then
            _FileWriteLog($LOG,"Download complete - " & $MIRRORS[$i][1])    
            ExitLoop
        EndIf
    Next
EndIf

;If file missing exit with errorlevel
If NOT FileExists ($DEST & $FILENAME) Then
    _FileWriteLog($LOG,"ERROR")
    Exit (1)
EndIf
    
_FileWriteLog($LOG,"OK")
Exit (0)

I've also tried this, but I'll check your code out too, thanks weaponx

while $i < 9

InetGet($array[$i], "bt3b.rar", 1, 1)

While @InetGetActive

  Sleep(250)

if @InetGetBytesRead = -1 then
  $i = $i + 1
