Clean code when doing FileWrite with many lines

Recommended Posts

I'm doing some screen scraping and generating some rss feeds. Is there a way to extend FileWrite over many lines so my line isn't so long (eg the entire feed )? I gave it a couple whacks but just got run errors.

Example:

FileWrite($f,'<?xml version="1.0"?>' & @CRLF & '<rss version="2.0">' & @CRLF & '   <channel>' & @CRLF & '     <title>widget widget widget</title>' & @CRLF &'     <link>http://widgets.com</link>' & @CRLF & '

only much much longer...the biggest problem with this aside from readability is that Scite only scrolls so far unless I use the end key with my cursor on the line

Here's the rss feed autoit is now creating...the entire thing is on the FileWrite line you see above...it's a real pain to troubleshoot and enhance!

my method is to have it sleep for 9,000,000 milliseconds on my computer, check the date of the last update via some fancy string manipulation, read/write to an ini and publish a new feed if its more recent using curl to my server..

but man that's a long line...

Why not just have it check every minute or so? I can't see a simple check like that getting in the way, and I hate having to wait :lmao: just my thought on that little bit of your script.

As for making a clean filewrite, you can extend lines via the _ delimeter, like so:

FileWrite($f,'<?xml version="1.0"?>' & @CRLF & _
'<rss version="2.0">' & @CRLF & _ 
'   <channel>' & @CRLF & _ 
'     <title>widget widget widget</title>' & @CRLF & _
'     <link>http://widgets.com</link>' & @CRLF & '

For Scite.

Add this to User Options:

horizontal.scroll.width=7000
Change the number to suit the width suitable.

:lmao:
