AutoIt has a built in way in the form of $CmdLine and $CmdLineRaw, but these can get a bit cumbersome when you have multiple switches with options. To make it easier (mostly just for myself) I wrote a 2 function wrapper If you want to use a slash as the symbol then you'll need to explicitly call the Parse function:


But after that you can get whether a parameter is set by using:

If CmdLine("install") Then
    ; Install
ElseIf CmdLine("uninstall") then
    ; Uninstall

If you are only going to have a couple of switches then you are better off with a Switch inside a loop though.
