There is no such beast like an "full api".

Any function you can't find in the help file is a user defined function (UDF). This is denoted by the starting "_". Unfortunately there isn't just a single place whre all UDFs are stored.

So you have to search the forum or even the internet to get what you need.

A good starting point is the script where you found the reference to the function. There must be an #include statement that references the function.

ah ok, well there is a file that has something to do with memory...however...i checked program files and the au3 file that was included was not to be found...

i am sorry, i am new to programming lol so i have some more relevant questions...

i downloaded an autoit program and it ran fine

then i downloaded autoit editor to try to learn autoit

but when i look at the program, it has that include file...but it is nowhere to be found under program files...so if it is not int eh program file when i downloaded autoit editor...how would the program work in the first place (when i did not install the script editor)...because where would teh program access teh input files?

thanks! :)

The only memory related UDF that comes to my mind is "nomad". So don't search the forum/internet for _MemoryRead but for the xxx.au3 from the #include statement.

lol yeah, that was the include statement XD

I just couldn't say it because of forum rules :)(

the first thing i saw was to not talk about writing for game bots lol

so if there is no API per say...how does one find these things like nomad and such?

thanks! ;)

The forum rules still apply and as you might have learned from the forum reactions might be rather harsh if you violate them.

As you are a new user I would suggest to re-read the rules and be very, very careful what you do relating game automation etc.
