Simulating command line parameters

6 posts in this topic

Is there a way to simualte command line parameters instead of having to:

  • Compile the script.
  • Enter Windows' DOS prompt and run the script with paramerers and/or create a shortcut.
every time you want to run the script (if it can't run without parameters)?

$cmdlineraw can be re-assigned but it doesn't affect $cmdline, which is a non editable constant. Is there any way around it?

Thanks!

LWC,

If you are running your script in SciTE (at least in the full version you can get from here), you can use the <View - Parameters> menu selection to set up to 4 commandline parameters to test when you run. :x

Yes - put a default parameters that will take effect if you start it without parameters.

Thanks, Melba23, it works!

But Juvigy, how to create default parameters is exactly the question of this topic (unless you just meant Melba23's solution).

There's a bunch of ways you can make "default parameters", but here's a solution that can be easily applied to any script:

First use Ctrl+H to replace all instances of $CmdLine, with $aCmdLine, or any name you prefer.

Then add something like this to your script:

Global $aDefaultParams[3] = [2,"Param1","Param2"] ;set the default paramenters
If $CmdLine[0] Then ;if there are any parameters specified at all
    $aCmdLine = $CmdLine ;use the specified paramaneters
Else
    $aCmdLine = $aDefaultParams ;use the default parameters
EndIf
;$aCmdLine is used in the rest of the script.

I doubt this method has any advantages over the Shift+F8 option though.

I doubt this method has any advantages over the Shift+F8 option though.

The advantages lies in "when". In that you general better of using that way when your in initial Dev-stated. After your code has reached a certain stage(lets say production) it becomes less useful, and it becomes better to remove or minimize that part.
