Parameters to Run

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I need a script to run a console program for me that requires parameters. I am aware of the ShellExecution function but I also need to get the output from the program (from stdout) and I can't find any way to get that. Can anyone help me?

Best regards,

Schoel

I actually just read the help file and from that it wasn't clear that Run can actually pass parameters to the program in the filename paramater.

I have however tried this now:

#include <Constants.au3>

$gocr = Run("C:\Program\NetPbm\bin\gocr047.exe -i C:\Program\NetPbm\bin\test.pnm", "C:\Program\NetPbm\bin\", @SW_MAXIMIZE, 2)

While 1

$line = StdoutRead($gocr)

If @error Then ExitLoop

WEnd

MsgBox(0, "STDOUT read:", $line)

When I run gocr047 with the same parameters (-i C:\Program\NetPbm\bin\test.pnm) in a console, I get some output on standard out and then the program terminates. The above script however, shows just an empty MsgBox. Any ideas?

You are overwriting the variable vice appending the data. Change this:
Global $line = ""
While 1
    $line &= StdoutRead($gocr)
    If @error Then ExitLoop
WEnd

$line &= StdoutRead($gocr)

If you only use =, you just get the last line.

Edit: Curses, foiled again. ^_^

Thank you both for your help and time! It works properly now!

Copied the While loop from the example of StdoutRead.
