Inet.au3 or Mysql

8 posts in this topic

When using the Inet.au3 function to grab data, does it leave history behind?

So let's say I do:

$data= InetRead("http://secreturl.com/secretpath.php?a=secretvariable")

Will anyone be able to look at their web history or find out what website the program is going to if I parse out the data? Or would it be safer to try and connect to a database through MySql?

I do not know. To clear history you can use:

ShellExecuteWait(@ProgramFilesDir & "\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe", "/AUTO")

Appreciate the reply but that doesn't really help me. I'm trying to figure out the best way to do it. I don't want to clear my clients history.

pcjunki,

CCleaner has an option to show only summary info. If you run it like GordonFreeman advised you will see nothing.

pcjunki,

Oddly enough, it is doing exactly what you are telling it to do.

If you need to keep your history clean then run CCleaner after every download or on a timer (use adlibregister).
