The number 4096 can burn in hell.

28 posts in this topic

I swear to whatever gods may or may not exist that the next motherfucker who tries to submit a UDF with a hard-coded buffer size is going to get stabbed 4096 times with a rusted butter knife. Here's a hint: If you're writing code with a fixed buffer size instead of dynamically calculating the buffer size, you are a failure as a programmer and a lazy programmer and need to go find a beach to bury yourself in at low tide.

I just used grepWin to search the "Include" directory and it finds 100 instances of "4096". Fucking ridiculous.

"Om nom nom"

You hear that? It's the universe eating itself because of the circular reference posting that link has introduced.

I'm not very good in English :-( so I don't understand exactly.

But feel free to remove my above post if you don't like it.

I know there is link from Trac to forum but I added link in reverse order from forum to Trac for those people don't reading Track only forum.

Bravo on the banning show.

Edit: Maybe stuff like this is usually in the Chat forum for a reason. ;)

Leaving out "Klein's URLs" and getting closer to the topic subject, is there any hope the AutoIt statement line size limitation could get removed or at least significantly increased?

I ask because there seem to be no way to initialize a medium-size array without hitting this limitation. A good example that did bite me hard is when I tried to use AutoIt to double-check some Unicode tries [for a SQLite extension].

I had a number of :

Local $unicode_fold_indexes[$UNICODE_FOLD_INDEXES_SIZE] = [ _

0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 2, 3, 0, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, _

11, 12, 13, 14, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 15, 16, 17, 18, _

19, 20, 21, 22, 0, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 0, 0, _

...

]

and

Local $unicode_fold_data_table[$UNICODE_FOLD_BLOCK_COUNT][$UNICODE_FOLD_BLOCK_SIZE] = [ _

[ 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF ], _

[ 0xFFFF, 0x0061, 0x0062, 0x0063, 0x0064, 0x0065, 0x0066, 0x0067, 0x0068, 0x0069, 0x006A, 0x006B, 0x006C, 0x006D, 0x006E, 0x006F, 0x0070, 0x0071, 0x0072, 0x0073, 0x0074, 0x0075, 0x0076, 0x0077, 0x0078, 0x0079, 0x007A, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF, 0xFFFF ], _

...

]

all exceeding the silly 4000 characters limit, and by far.

I can think of ways to remove that limitation but they aren't really trivial to implement. The trivial ways to implement it all impact performance. The reason a static line size is used is so that constant allocations and deallocations don't occur.
