#include and continuous build environment

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have been searching with little success, but I want to build my AutoIT scripts in a CI environment, but have problems regarding paths for #includes. I am using Hudson and can execute the process just fine, but I am having issues with include resolution.

I have the following questions:

1. Can I provide a directory using the registry setting that will parse all sub-directories? (If so, how?)

2. It is my understanding that I cannot parameterize the #include statements, in other words, use a variable in the #include statement, is there a way around this?

3. Has anyone had any success building scripts in a continuous build environment, if so, please let me know how you were successful!

So far, the only way I have been able to make it work is by including every possible relative path for each individual .au3 file. This is very inefficient, was hoping there was a better solution.

Thanks for any help you can provide, I am an experienced software developer, just new to AutoIT.

Variables don't exist or have values until run-time. Compiler directives like #include are interpreted at compile-time, which is before run-time, so the the script is not being run yet, and the variables and macros don't exist yet.

Consider the unique case of FileInstall(). The source is interpreted at compile-time, so it must not contain variables or macros. Then destination is not interpreted until run-time, so it can contain macros and variables.

An un-compiled AutoIt script (.au3 file) is just plain text, so you could dynamically update the #include paths of the script file with a pre-processor before compiling.
