Multiple statements on one line?

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Is there a way to have multiple statements on one line, for compactness of simple code?

The old BASIC way was to use the colon....

A = 1 : B = 2 : C = A + B

While C/C++ uses the semicolon....

a = 1 ; b = 2 ; c = a + b

Not explicitly, but there are workarounds. Example.

;Declaring Variables
Global $a = 1, $b = 2, $c = $a + $b
ConsoleWrite($c & @CRLF)

;Using Operators with Functions, must be saved to a variable.  (For demonstration purposes only.)
$Test = MsgBox(0, "Test 1", "This is a test.") + MsgBox(0, "Test 2", "This is a test.") - MsgBox(0, "Test 3", "This is a test.")

;Using a Function with Operators.   (For demonstration purposes only.)
_MultilineExec(MsgBox(0, "Test 4", "This is a test.") + MsgBox(0, "Test 5", "This is a test.") - MsgBox(0, "Test 6", "This is a test."))

Func _MultilineExec($sParameter)
Return $sParameter
EndFunc

AdamUL,

I would strongly advise NOT using the second and third of those examples. Read the Speed is the root of all evil thread for more on why. :)

Melba23,

I know that the 2nd and 3rd examples is not good way to write code, but it was ask if it was possible in the language. That is all I was showing. Should code be written like that 2nd and 3rd examples? Of course not.

AdamUL,

Then you should have made that clear in your first post, rather than waiting until I made the point for you. Remember that many newer members take any replies to their question at face value. ;)

Have a good weekend. :)
