Recommended Posts

nokia6300

I got admission in Computer Software Engineering recently & soon my classes started regularly. In course out line i seen a subject known as "C++" i heard from people that C++ is final & extreme thing in programming till day today?Is It True?If it is a true then if a person who is a programmer in AutoIt had a competition with a C++ programmer who can be win ? Is AutoIt equally powerful as C++

There is no such thing as "programmer in AutoIt" you will be a "scripter" not a "programmer"

No Windows = No AutoIT

You will always lose if you apply for a job against a C programmer ... unless they need a scripter :blink:

... and a final thought ... AutoIt is probably written in a "C something" language ... clear now?


SNMP_UDF ... for SNMPv1 and v2c so far, GetBulk and a new example script

wannabe "Unbeatable" Tic-Tac-Toe

Paper-Scissor-Rock ... try to beat it anyway :)

AutoIt is not equally as powerful as C++, really the two are not comparable. Its like saying is a Semi more powerful then a F1 race car, they are different. Learn more about the features of each and you will soon see.

Have a read of http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=115340

Post your code because code says more then your words can. SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y.

C++ is one of the most used languages in the world. It's also among the most complex languages and furthermore, learning C++ is almost like learning Java and C at the same time.

AutoIt's written in c++, and AutoIt is interpreted. This means AutoIt will be (per line) slower than c++ by the time it takes the interpreter to parse that line, plus whatever start up time there is for AutoIt. For the most part this is not a problem, but if you want to do stuff fast then AutoIt will lose. If the competition was the first one to write a simple GUI application from scratch then AutoIt would win easily, simply because you can do it in a lot less lines, and one file.

C++ is better then AutoIT, but in the most situations it's more then enough to make what you want with AutoIT, as in most situations you don't need to create some kind of games, you just need a tool to help you in one or other situation.

Well AutoIt doesn't support OOP, or Multiple threads, and the list goes on, pretty clear cut.

C++ is one of the most used languages in the world. It's also among the most complex languages and furthermore, learning C++ is almost like learning Java and C at the same time.

Think I'll just add those 2 languages to my resume :blink:

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

As a man who enjoys an entertaining necro, I'd venture to say yes, it is useful.  lmao.

All joking aside, I'm taking an Intro to C++ class and I'm a newb at AutoIT.  I found each reply to this post quite worthwhile.  Even the one by sycam0inc

Kronitron,

MBALZESHARI is right on all 3 counts: :thumbsup:

- The Mods do not like necro-posts, particularly useless ones such as yours.

- Please take his suggestion and do not do it again.

- It is not amusing at all.

Thread locked to prevent any more inane necro-posts. :naughty:
