I am able to debug without hacking anything, it is boring though. I haven't been using Scite long. I only came to it because of the syntax autocompletion, parameter ghosting and menu options. I still have Crimson open almost all the time for the quick and dirty macro builder.
I understand the terms you use below, but had no idea those capabilities were in Scite. Apparently I never looked at the bottom half of the tools menu either. I'll have to try those out.
I understand your third point too. But, even if wOuter doesn't update base addresses, it would be nice while it lasted.
Gene, IMO, you need to really re-think your debugging methods if you aren't able to do it without hacking AutoIt. I know with SciTE I can insert trace statements for any variable I want or I can insert a trace of all function calls (Like a call stack) for an entire file just with hotkeys. I rarely use message boxes for debugging and I definitely never needed to hack AutoIt to do it.
In addition, the moment 184.108.40.206 comes out, w0uter will have to give you a new base address. Is this really practical for you to hack AutoIt each release to ensure you can debug code when their are tons of other, more suitable ways of doing it?
