I Have a SVCBRIPT that reads a file and then writes to another file with some changes. However i can figure out how to do the last two things. I need it to strip everything from the line after "/". I also want to then delete the lines that may contain two of the same address.

The Format of List1.txt is below

http://137.122.144.15/
http://137.99.27.45/simulations/
http://139.130.137.16/genecom98/
http://139.130.239.70/

The format of List2.txt is below

gatekeeper.dec.com/pub/data/shakespeare
index.html
intranet.vca.unimelb.edu.au/research
io.cc.gettysburg.edu
laog.obs.ujf-grenoble.fr/pub/publications/letter_denis

The Script i used to do this is below.
Set FileSys = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set EduFile = FileSys.OpenTextFile("List1.txt", 1)
Set ISAFile = FileSys.CreateTextFile("List2.txt",True)

Dim RawDomainString

Do While EduFile.AtEndofStream <> True
RawDomainString = EduFile.ReadLine

wscript.echo CheckString(RawDomainString)

ISAFile.writeline CheckString(RawDomainString)
Loop

ISAFile.close
EduFile.Close

Function CheckString(Raw)

'Check the string to remove any http:// or ftp:// from the start of the line, and any / from end of line
Raw = LCase(Raw)

If InStr(Raw, "http://www.") then
Raw = Replace(Raw, "http://www.", "")
End If

If InStr(Raw, "gopher://") then
Raw = Replace(Raw, "gopher://", "")
End If

If InStr(Raw, "ftp://") then
Raw = Replace(Raw, "ftp://", "")
End If

If Right(Raw,1) = "/" then
Raw = Left(Raw,(Len(Raw)-1))
End If

CheckString = Raw

End Function

Try this...

Dim objFSO: Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Dim objFile: Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\Testing\myfile.txt")
Dim dicSort: Set dicSort = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
Dim RawDomainString

Do While Not objFile.AtEndofStream
  On Error Resume Next
  RawDomainString = CheckString(objFile.ReadLine)
  dicSort.Add RawDomainString, dicSort.Count
Loop

objFile.Close
Set objFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile("C:\Testing\myfile.txt")
For Each Item In dicSort
  objFile.writeline Item
Next
objFile.Close
Set objFile = Nothing
Set objFSO = Nothing

Function CheckString(Raw)
'Removes any leading http, gopher, ftp from the string and returns lcase version
Raw = LCase(Replace(Replace(Replace(Raw, "http://", ""), "gopher://", ""), "ftp://", ""))

CheckString = Left(Raw, InStr(Raw, "/") - 1) 'strips everything from the last / over
End Function

1/ the format of List1.txt doesnt lead to List2.txt !

where does gatekeeper.dec.com/pub/data/shakespeare come from ?

2/ is the first line of List1.txt actually.... ?
http://137.122.144.15/gatekeeper.dec.com/pub/data/shakespeare or is the script to do a DNS lookup ?

We need a matching part of test1 and what you want test2 to look like.


3/ the duplicate lines is already answered in other q. very elegantly.
