FileReadLine Bug ?

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have the following code :

$var1 = String ( '"' & @ScriptDir & "\new_1.log" & '"' )
$var2 = FileReadLine ( $var1, 2 )
MsgBox ( 4096,"Test",$var2 )

It looks like that FileReadLine can't read filenames with a path between quotes.

Files are placed for test : c:\Documents and Settings\JSL\My Documents\Autoit Scripts\Log file\var.au3

Is this a limitation of FileReadLine ?

Try with this instead:

$file = FileOpen(@ScriptDir & "\new_1.log", 0)
$var2 = FileReadLine ($file,2)
MsgBox (4096,"Test",$var2 )

Edit: did not see that you had used string there.

Why do you need to qoute the string ? As you are only using it to inn the FileReadLine()?

Don't save the quotes as part of the file path, and only add the quotes where you have to:
$var1 = String (@ScriptDir & "\new_1.log")
$var2 = FileReadLine ( $var1, 2 ); no quotes
Run('notepad.exe "' & $var1 & '"'); added quotes

:)
