Sample Script SS_FindStr Purpose Lists lines in all files matching a pattern in a given directory that contain a specified string. Source Code ##################################################################### # SCRIPT: SS_FindStr # # This script finds a string instance in files whose names match # a given criterion in a given directory. # # The criterion for file names is assigned using FVA (Forward Variable Assignment) # for str variable $files. The value of $files is of form # "*.html", "*.js", "*.cpp", "*.h", etc. # # The directory name is assigned using FVA # for str variable $dir. The value of $dir is of form # "C:/ABC/DEF", ".", etc. # # The string being sought is assigned using FVA # for str variable $str. The value of $str is of form # "abc", "Copyright", etc. # # The start line is assigned using FVA for str variable $from. The # value is of the form "1", "2", etc. If no value supplied, "1" is assumed. # # The end line is assigned using FVA for int variable $to. The # value is of the form "1", "100", etc. If no value is supplied, "l" (last line) is assumed. # # Note that $from and $to are str variables. If you are passing int values, use the makestr() function # as follows. # from(makestr(int(1))) to(makestr(int(5))) # # This script can be stored and edited as necessary, in a text file # called SS_FindStr.txt in a directory in your $path. The script can then be called as # # script SS_FindStr.txt files("*.cpp") dir("C:/mydir") str("abc") from("1") to("5") # # ##################################################################### # Declare FVA variables. var str files var str dir var str str # The first str is the variable type, the second str is the variable name. var str from var str to # Get the list of files in variable fileList. var str fileList script "SS_ListFiles.txt" dir($dir) files($files) > $fileList # We will store the name of one file in $file. var str file # Go thru the $fileList one by one file. while ($fileList <> "") do # Extract the next file. lex "1" $fileList > $file # Check if this is a flat file.
