So, there's a lot of stuff that's been reported in this thread. Am I going to have to go through this entire thread post by post correcting things or has somebody already collated all the changes in their own copy of the documentation source?

I have most of them already and I'll submit soon.

In the meantime I have one that needs clarification from a Dev (I guess that would be you).
IniReadSection()

Only the first 32767 chars are taken in account in an section due to Win9x compatibility.

Is that limitation still in place?
If it is still there because of Win 2K then we need to revise that line to replace Win9x with Win 2K
If the limitation is gone then that line should be as well.

As a matter of fact any line that mentions Win9x will need to be looked at since it's no longer supported anyway. We will have to determine if the condition that caused the compatability issue still exists or not though.

Edit:
Regardless of the decision that line has grammar errors in it as well so it will have to be changed anyway but not without a decision first.

There are still limits. I do not know what they are because they vary from version to version of Windows. The only constant was that Windows 9x had the lowest limit so that is the one we documented.

Then I think that should be changed to say Win 2K instead of 9x and just correct the grammar. I can use GrepWin to quickly see what other files have the same issue.

Sorry for the delays but I don't get any code time through the week at all now and I'm limited as to how much I can accomplish over the weekend.

Bit of a trivial one here, again with an example not working off the bat because of what may be a typo.

WinMenuSelectItem("[CLASS:Notepad] ", "", "&File", "Page Set&up..." )

For Dll types in general:

It is very misleading that the types are given cases (e.g. "int" and "BOOL") yet are case-insensitive. It should at least mention that it is case insensitive, and be a bit more consistent in which case it uses. For example, DllCall lists a type "HWND" yet uses "hwnd" in the example code.

Of course the case is mimicking the C types, where built in types are lowercase and winapi types are upper case, and since the Dll functions are targeted at people who know what they are doing I'm not concerned about differences in cases between different types, only that it is a) documented and :graduated: consistent.

The way this thread has gone is not working. People report issues. George collates them. I commit them. That's adding in several steps that don't need to exist. If you have repository access and you want to fix something, do it. If you see something reported that needs fixed, do it. The less hands on it the quicker changes will go in. If you have questions then ask us, but otherwise just fix trivial things yourself.

Quick English lesson: To make a word plural add s to the end. For example, to make parent plural make it parents. To make a word possessive add 's. That is apostrophe and s. With the word parent it would become parent's. Why do I bring this up? Because I'm reviewing the grammar changes that have been submitted and some of them are wrong. They are changing possessive words to plural words by removing the apostrophe. So far the only time I've seen this done right is when the original documentation was accidentally possessive when it needed to be plural.

English lesson #2: The conundrum that is its/it's. This is the opposite of the above rule. The contraction it is becomes it's with the apostrophe. The possessive form of it becomes its without an apostrophe. I know it's confusing and I can hardly remember it myself (as reflected by the fact a lot of the its/it's mistakes in the documentation are mine). Never-the-less that is the way it is.

So, if we're going to be grammar nazi's on the documentation we need to be right. Changing things that are correct to make them incorrect doesn't help. Likewise changing incorrect things to different incorrect things doesn't help either.

Encryption Management

Encryption user defined functions Reference

Below is a complete list of the user defined functions available in AutoIt. Click on a user defined function name for a detailed description.
When using them you need to add a #include <Encryption.au3>.

shouldnt this be #Include <Crypt.au3> ??

is there a list in this section anywhere of the possible encyption types?
ie $CALG_RC4 etc etc

For now just check in Crypt.au3 (hit Alt + I in SciTE when you have caret inside #include <Crypt.au3>) under the section Constants.
