error checking

Recommended Posts

tsolrm

I've got a big script (well over 1000 lines) and I run it directly from autoit to make sure that I know where the error is when it crashes.

When it does stop (for example the good old "array variable has incorrect number of subscripts bla bla bla" - it shows the line where the error has occurred but is there any way to find out what variables are equal to before the error happened? I know this is possible in C++ but I'm new to Autoit.

Obviously i could set up a text file where all the variables are going to be logged but this would take ages.

You best bet is to _ArrayDisplay the offending array.

But beyond post-mortem analysis, you should check for errors when the array gets built (probably the return value of some function).

I find it is helpful to use the tracing function of the SCiTE4AutoIT. That way you can see the program flow and determines exactly where it errors out.

Then, it is a simple matter of adding _ArrayDisplay($arrayvar) or ConsoleWrite($naughtyvariable) to see what the contents are just before it dies.

Under the full blown Scite, hit Tools then lookup all Debug * and Trace * options.
