Include Script-source In Exe

Recommended Posts

This is just from another post at this forum, but trids asked me to

post it here at Scripts and Scraps so here ya go :

When I make big scripts in AutoIt, I normally just do a FileInstall to

include the source in the EXE-file..

If $CmdLine[0] = 2 AND $CmdLine[1] = "/source" AND $CmdLine[2] = "password"  Then
FileInstall("Source.zip", "Source.zip", 1)

And as you can see, to get my hands on the source again, I just have to write :

MyProgram.exe /source password

Hmmm. I've been thinking of making a compile-time (And maybe a run-time...) interpreter which sits between scripts and AutoIt3.exe/Aut2Exe.exe which reads special comments and performs various tasks from that such as defining the icon to be used (A suped-up version of redndahead's script, basically). That looks like a good idea for an additon to the compile-time interpreter.

It's a mute point now, there is an official decompiler so this trick isn't necessary.

The output is pretty nasty though, no doubt I'll change it so the scripts are compiled in all their whitespace glory... :D

Looks like it has been removed from the unstable area. Let's see where did I put it? :D

I found this version lying around. Try it and see what you think.

BTW, I am not supporting this and it may have bugs that I am not going to fix. When the updated version is put in unstable (or even better yet, the release) I will removing this one.
