AutoIt Error Bug?

9 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Is it just me or does it get really hard to debug large scripts?

I've been working on a script that has gotten to be over 5000 lines and started noticing that after around 4500+ lines and 145kb, debugging the script started getting hard, autoit will just exit without giving any extended error information like the type of error or even the line where the error occurred.

Is this expected or should I just break down the script into various files?

This is the error I get now under scite, this is happening with non-compiled script.

!>16:41:13 AutoIT3.exe ended.rc:-1073741819

autoit3.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close.  We are sorry for the inconvenience.
If you were in the middle of something, the information you were working on might be lost.

But if I run smaller scripts, I get the wanted info, like line where error happened etc.

Can't say I've experienced that. Have you looked at using Obfuscator with the /mergeonly option? Do a search in the Developer Forum.

I knida got that, but it only happened a few times and then stopped. My code was about 1500 lines long.

My bad, I mean this is happening in scite when I run the script, not after I compile it or obfuscate the code.

ApudAngelorum,

Pardon the obvious, but, I assume that you are making efficient use of arrays and loops and externalizing all data?

not sure I understand the bit about externalizing data but it's using a lot of arrays and loops, I know what the errors are and where they're happening but the issue is that it would still be nice if scite reported the error line and variable array that killed my script.

ApudAngelorum,

Yes, of course, this has nothing to do with your specific problem. I was asking a general programming technique question as I am curious what would take 5000+ lines of code.

Externalizing data means that you are not storing large string (usually tables of some kind) within the code.

Edit: finger f&^k caused inadvertent cut and paste, sorry!
