\Include+ directory ... by design, or a fluke?

3 posts in this topic

I've always kept my "development" include files intermingled with the standard ones on Include.

In my upgrade to 3.3.12, however, I decided it would be better to separate them into a companion directory, Include+

Somehow, I thought AutoIt looked on all its subdirectories for includes ... but when I looked at the help file, I found this:

 

Standard library The path of the currently running interpreter with "Include" appended is searched.

 

The thing is, include+ works.  It seems to have no problem finding the files ... but am I asking for trouble?  Is this an undocumented feature?  Or is it working only as a fluke?

I want to clarify: this isn't causing me a problem (yet?).  But it has me puzzled.

Hopefully, someone can shed some light.

Thanks in advance.

qwert,

Why not use SciTE4AutoIt3 to set your personal include folder - the Adding UDFs to AutoIt and SciTE tutorial in the Wiki tells you how. Then you know it will work. :)

Good point, of course.  Thanks for your response.

Curiously, Include+ is already in my User.Properties file.  Unless I did it in my sleep, SciTE must have added it to the path ... although I couldn't find any reference to such a feature on their site.

The extended path entry explains why/how it works.  I'll just classify it as one of those "things that go 'bump' in the night" ... and not as a fluke.

Case closed.
