FileReadLine -- File contains NUL

Recommended Posts

Home Bunny

I'm reading files to convert the content to a SQL database.

The thing i'm having is following:

In my files (opened in SciTe) have sometimes a 'NUL' seperator:


(the NUL is visible in white text, black background)

with FileReadLine a empty string is returned, also it isn't posible to copy the 'NUL', gives also a empty string ...

How can i proceed to read these lines?

Found it, the NUL character ==> StringToBinary( $chars ) = 0x00

for the ones that have the same problem:

#include <Array.au3>

Local $avArray[1]
local $Line, $Line2
$i = 0

$file = FileOpen("Mydata.txt",0)

; Check if file opened for reading OK
If $file = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")

; Read in 1 character at a time until the EOF is reached
While 1
    $chars = FileRead($file, 1)
    If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop

    If StringToBinary( $chars ) <> 0x00 Then
        if $chars <> @LF Then
            $Line2 &= $chars
            If $Line2 <> "" Then
                _ArrayAdd($avArray, $Line2)
            $Line2 = ""

_ArrayDisplay($avArray, $file)
