Linking variables

Recommended Posts

Another quick question - is it possible to set up an alias for a variable, essentially referring to it by a different name? For example, if I wanted to refer to $produce[0][4][5][7] as "$eggs" and $containers[5][7][2][4] as "$baskets" without having to update each "shorthand" variable every time its counterpart changes its value.

It sounds like you want to do some object oriented stuff. AutoIt is not an object oriented language, but there is a UDF to provide some of that kind of functionality. I'm not familiar with it, so I can't help you. Below is a link to the UDF:

#include <ByteMe.au3>

Or you could use an "associated array" - I use Nutster's version here. :)
