How can I search a files contents with wildcards

5 posts in this topic

In visual basic I use the "Like" Operator which supports several wildcards.

Is there a way in AutoIt to search through a files contents with a wildcard search ?

Not yet but Holger is working on code to do so. Check out the Idea lab or the Develper sections.

... Almost every dos command can be used with wilcards... :)

What about looking for the files you need with _FileSearch() and when you have the list chek them one by one with the Regular Expression?

It what you want, isn't it?
