Hi everyone

im having a small loop issue i need little help with,

i am trying to search in file first to find a specific entry; followed by another search and replace,

my start test.txt file looks like this

PHP Code:

```
``````
mod={1234}
```

size=11

mod={1235}

size=11

i am trying to search for "mod={1234}" than replace the "size=*" that follows,

as a starting point the number after "size=" can be any number,

i am searching for the next line start and replacing the entire line after the first match is found,

it seem to work accept its looping on me; it keeps finding "size=" and replacing it throughout the file,

i am trying to get to this

PHP Code:

```
``````
mod={1234}
```

size=22

mod={1235}

size=11

but i keep ending up with this

PHP Code:

```
``````
mod={1234}
```

size=22

mod={1235}

size=22

why is it looping instead of replacing just the first match?

this is the code i am currently using,

PHP Code:

```
``````
!include "TextFunc.nsh"
```

!insertmacro LineFind

!define FIND1 "mod={1234}"

!define FINDNEXT "size="

!define REPL1 "size=22"

outFile "test.exe"

Function LineFindCallback

StrLen $3 "${FIND1}"

StrLen $0 "${FINDNEXT}"

StrCpy $1 "$R9" $0

StrCmp $1 "${FINDNEXT}" 0 End

StrCpy $R9 "${REPL1}$\r$\n"

End:

Push $0

FunctionEnd

Section Install

${LineFind} "test.txt" "test.txt" "1:-1" "LineFindCallback"

IfErrors 0 +2

MessageBox MB_OK "Error"

SectionEnd

TIA
