About This File

I wrote an introductory text for new programmers to learn how to code using AutoIt.   It follows along with the help file for the most part – but provides additional context and attempts to connect all the information in a cohesive way for someone without any programming experience.  I find the help file to be an AMAZING resource and the text I wrote in no way reflects any opinion to the contrary.  Rather, it was created from the perspective of someone who struggled early on with the most basic concepts and thought that a hand-holding guide could be useful.  I was also inspired by code.org who is trying to encourage people to learn to code.  I thought – what better way than to use free tools that you can download at any time with access to an amazing community?  If only there was a guide to walk people through it …

      'm trying to make an autologin script for facebook which prompts u to enter an email and a password and then opens the browser and logs you with the info u entered but im having a problem with the text entered in the input box. What i basically want it to do is take what's written on the inputbox and replace it on the email form in the facebook site and the password. Don't mind the other buttons in the gui , i just wanted to focus on the facebook button first. Any help will be appreciated
