Converting a file and writing in lines

5 posts in this topic

Hi Guys

I have a problem and not to sure where to start.. this is still a bit new to me..

I have a .dat file that i need to convert to a .txt and then add 5 lines to it starting at line 270. Then i need to convert it back to a .dat file.

what does converting mean ?

when its a normal test type file you can add lines a the given spot by using:

#include <File.au3>
_FileWriteToLine ( $sFile, $iLine, $sText [, $fOverWrite] )

Don't see a need to rename it first.....

Just look up the func I mentioned in the helpfile and give it a try on the original filename.
