Read Lines - Extracts a range of lines from a text file
This action efficiently reads lines of text from a specific location in a file. The file has to be located on the server file system.
<Path> (non-repetitive text trigger [required]):
The path that identifies the input file.
<Byte Offset> (non-repetitive numeric trigger [not required]):
The starting position (in bytes) at which extraction should start (starting from 0). The default is 0
<Max Lines> (non-repetitive numeric trigger [not required]): The maximum number of lines to read
<Encoding> (non-repetitive numeric trigger [not required]): The character encoding used to read the file.
The default encoding is the system's default encoding.
<Text> (non-repetitive text exit [not required]):
The extracted lined as a single block of text. If no lines were found, no value is returned. The text includes line separators (between the lines and at the end of the last lines).
<Total Size> (non-repetitive numeric exit [not required]):
The total size of the file, in bytes
<End Offset> (non-repetitive numeric exit [not required]):
The offset in bytes after the end of the last extracted line
Specifically, if we read through the end of the file then <End Offset> and <Total Size> will be the same.
<End Offset> is useful as the <Byte Offset> when we want to read the next lines in the file
<More Lines> (non-repetitive empty exit [not required]):
Indicates that there are additional lines in the file.
<Number of Lines Returned> (non-repetitive numeric exit [not required]):
The number of lines returned in the output
Note: This plugin reads complete lines. If the file does not end in a newline character,
the part of the file following the last newline character will not be read (and so <End Offset>
will be smaller than <Total Size> while there are no additional lines)
