exe to au

6 posts in this topic

hey guys, first post right here, sorry couldnt find an introduce yourself thread... anyways

i was trying to figure out why i get error codes after trying to compile a script file i got from uncompiling an exe file created on autoit?

i also tried to compile the "original" source code and still get the same errors...

makes no sense to me, (not at first thought at least) any ideas?

the original code was written prolly back in 04...so.

i get a syntax error and a undefined function error, which makes not much sense either since after checkin the code this so called function is defined.... i was thinking on versions' compatibility issues.... any idea?

ERROR: syntax error

$str_help = "\n\n"_

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~^

ERROR: detectlanguage(): undefined function.

$language = detectlanguage()

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~^

Thanks and peace.

PS. Any good material, manual, links, etc about autoit is welcome, i finally decided to begin programming with it :D

F1 in the help file, to help you properly we need to see the code.


Interpreters have great power!Although they live in the shadow of compiled programming languages an interpreter can do anything that a compiled language can do, you just have to code it right.

The first most important resource for AutoIt is the help file. If that script was written that long ago, there are so many changes that it won't be worth the time to try fixing it. I suggest that you use that code as a guide and just re-write it from scratch using the AutoIt help file to assist you.

I'm thinking that detectlanguage() is probably an unrequired function anyway and is either replaced by the @OSLang macro or it was written by someone who didn't know about that macro. In the latter case, you have bigger problems than you think you do so it's rewrite time anyway.

I guess you could use the small plus button in the lower right corner. Or am I wrong?
