how to share a variable between 2 AutoIt created .exe's?

8 posts in this topic

Hi, I have 2 exe files created by AutoIt,

File A.exe has to:

1. Set variable a = 1

2. RunWait File B and pass variable $a value in it

File B has to:

1. Take value of variable $a

2. use it in $b = $a + 2 that will complete work of File B.

File B do not have to return anything back to File A

I have to find way without creating a temp. file for storing variable "a" data

Thanks a lot

;) Then you could write the value of variable to memory. Search the forums for Nomadmemory.au3

squ,

Search the forum for "+inter +script +communication" - there are lots of examples. My personal favourite is trancex's MailSlot. ;)

Melba, I suppose it works by creating a virtual device (sort of), and then reads/writes data to it?

MKISH,

I do not think so - from one of the explanatory links in the first 2 posts: ;)

"A mailslot is a (temporary) RAM-based file to which numerous records of data can be written and read"

Thanx for a quick reply Melba. You really triggered something great in my mind. I'll try it once I am back home and tell everyone, if I have some success. As for sqa, M23's approach is better than using Memory writing functions, since you have lesser chances of screwing up.

For such a simple task you can just pass it on the commandline:

;script a

$a = 1

Runwait("b.exe " & $a)

;script B

$a = $cmdline[1]

;use a ..

Ever wanted to call functions in another process? ProcessCall UDFConsole stuff: Console UDFC Preprocessor for AutoIt OMG
