Merge Files

4 posts in this topic

I'm looking for a way to copy multiple files into one (not an archive) like you can do through CMD using the following command:

Copy /b File.ext File2.ext Comb.ext

I tried using FileCopy('File.ext' + File2.ext', 'Comb.ext')

I tried FileRead then combining the strings then writing a new file

neither of these worked

what I'm using to test it is a 7z SFX where you combine the archive with a config file and the SFX file:

copy /b 7zs.sfx + config.txt + Archive.7z Installer.exe

but with the two attempts i've made through autoit I get an unusable EXE

I'd like to be able to do this without using @ComSpec or CMD if possible since but if I need to I can do it that way I was just hoping someone else would have another way

Merging any files into an exe will result in an invalid executable unless the files are pieces of a split exe.

Make sure you're opening the files in binary mode.

Func _FileMerge($s_SrcFile1, $s_SrcFile2, $s_DestFile)
    ; Read Files in Binary Mode
    Local $h_File1 = FileOpen($s_SrcFile1 , 16)
    Local $h_File2 = FileOpen($s_SrcFile2 , 16)
    FileWrite($s_DestFile, FileRead($h_File1) & FileRead($h_File2))
EndFunc

Tested with split.exe. (http://unxutils.sourceforge.net/)
