Understanding error/warning messages

Recommended Posts


What do the numbers mean on error messages?  Where do I find something to explain them?


--Programs Name-- (23,40) : WARNING: --some problem--

--Programs Name-- (30,45) : WARNING: --some problem--

--Programs Name-- (329,12) : WARNING: --some problem--


At first I thought it pointed me to the line of code that was improper, but I was wrong.. Is there somewhere that can help me fully understandng what the messages say?

Generally, the first number is the line, the second number is the Character on the line where the error starts.

If the script has been compiled, which isn't necessary if you're just testing it, the line numbers and the script don't have anything to do with each other. This is usually because the script will have #includes added into them as well as other factors.

Run the script from the editor without compiling and you might be able to get an idea where the errors are really occurring in your script.

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.
