How do you destory a variable in autoit?

Example in ms-dos

set var=

Autoit attempts

"" sets as empty string

0 sets as numerical 0

<null> fails

$office_name = ""
$office_type = ""
$office_arch = ""
$office_path = ""
$office_script = ""
$office_setup = ""
$office_switch = ""

$office_name = 0
$office_type = 0
$office_arch = 0
$office_path = 0
$office_script = 0
$office_setup = 0
$office_switch = 0

$office_name =
$office_type =
$office_arch =
$office_path =
$office_script =
$office_setup =
$office_switch =

ConsoleWrite($office_name&@CRLF)
ConsoleWrite($office_type&@CRLF)
ConsoleWrite($office_arch&@CRLF)
ConsoleWrite($office_path&@CRLF)
ConsoleWrite($office_script&@CRLF)
If IsDeclared("office_setup") Then ConsoleWrite($office_setup&@CRLF)
If IsDeclared("office_switch") Then ConsoleWrite($office_switch&@CRLF)
ConsoleWrite("-"&@CRLF)

If the variable is global in scope, you can't undeclare it. If it's a local variable, and in a function, it will automatically be destroyed after returning from the function, unless it's also a Static variable, and then all bets are off.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

You can assign a value to the variable that you interpret as "no value assigned". Like "", 0, -1 or NULL.
