just a question

23 posts in this topic

ive been reading with my eyes -> O_O <- like that for the last 4 hours about autoit multithreading / processing...

but now i am just thinking if CreateThread isnt so great,, what ways would you guys recommend? i really want to stay away from multiple .exe's as far as posible because AutoIt can be decompiled with ease now , and i wont post the link to this decompiler that some idiot made unless it is allowed to ? and so autoit community could get rid of the tool somehow maybe .. i dont know .. but anyway what would you recommend? 

and a simple quick of the top of your head example with the suggestion if you dont mind? :) or a link to example even...

Decompilers are definitely not allowed.

What is your question? You lost me a bit.

yes i know , but one exists and it can decompile any autoit exe....  :

my question is what method is/are best to use as a faik multithreading? something that doesnt make main script pause while function is called or w..e.  :thumbsup:

I haven't messed with any multithreading/coring myself, I just multi-exe.

But also my programs are individual from each other.

I'll leave this for the more experienced auto-iters (old people)

So... best way to/help with multithreading

If you have a script where your GUI is becoming unresponsive for unacceptable amounts of time, chances are you're constructing it poorly.

If you want a stable program to perform multiple tasks simultaneously with AutoIt3 then you simply have to use multiple process.

That is the only answer at this time.

fair enough  :sweating:

would you be able to demonstrate a clean / perfect way for doing this?

my guis are not irresponsive... they work fine :) but one task at a time is getting boring i want to try something more

 

example / tips 

will do to get me to right directions :) THNX !  o:)

What relationship do you have in mind between reverse-engineering or piracy on the one hand and multi-threading or multi-processing on the other?

Can you give a real-world example of two things you would want to perform in parallel, that couldn't be implemented using one or more processes?

Finally, which practical problem are you trying to solve?

tomashen,

Even mentioning decompilation sets off alarms here - posting a link to a decompiler would mean your immediate and permanent removal from this community, as will any further posts from you on this subject. Please read the Forum rules to be sure you are aware of them - you are now firmly on my radar, which is not a good place to be. :naughty:

And please answer jchd's extremely pertinent questions before this goes any further. ;)

jchd is asking what makes you think that multi-processing/threading and piracy are related?

Melba i only said it because i said i want to stay away from multiple exes because that mean more to protect... i dont want anybody to have the decompiler please go ban the website if you can because its stupid moron that release the decomper... >.< 

and i just want  multithreading because i want to create a chat like skype , because i loved windows live messenger ( MSN ) and its gone now ...so i want to make something similar ! ^^

 

owww. ok guiness thnx:) --> i dont know why jchd ask me that ? because i mention decomp? well i want multithread because protecting 1 exe is easier than 5. :)

Protecting 5 exe's with different protections is better than having 1 protected exe

Priceless. If you were serious then you wouldn't be doing this in AutoIt.

(Sorry AutoIt!)

well i want multithread because protecting 1 exe is easier than 5.

That's an unproven assumption. Then another "out of the blue" assumption is that you would need 5 distinct programs to achieve your goal. Finally and just as guinness noticed, AutoIt is certainly not the best platform to start such a project.

Good to see jchd agrees with me. Any good developer knows the strengths and weaknesses of any language. I just think it's funny that you don't even have a product to protect yet. So my advice create your "Skype" clone and then look at whatever it is you are trying to do.
