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

Recommended Posts


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.

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. :)


Any of my own code posted anywhere on the forum is available for use by others without any restriction of any kind._______My UDFs:


ArrayMultiColSort ---- Sort arrays on multiple columns
ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
GUIExtender -------- Extend and retract multiple sections within a GUI
GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs
NoFocusLines ------- Remove the dotted focus lines from buttons, sliders, radios and checkboxes
Notify ------------- Small notifications on the edge of the display
Scrollbars ----------Automatically sized scrollbars with a single command
StringSize ---------- Automatically size controls to fit text
Toast -------------- Small GUIs which pop out of the notification area

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.
