Pipe Bug?

Recommended Posts

Hello.

It seems that one or more built-in AutoIt strings functions don't work properly with pipe characters ("|").

I've attatched the full source code. Everything works perfectly with the strings that contain "++" and "&&", but not the one with "||". Why?

The ProcessCommandLine function doesn't reference a pipe character!
 

Func Main()
    Local $TestCommandLineFirst
    Local $TestCommandLineSecond
    Local $TestCommandLineThird
    Local $CommandLineFirst
    Local $CommandLineSecond
    Local $CommandLineThird
    Local $Counter

    $TestCommandLineFirst = "Welcome to Windows ++ ""This is going to be cool""" ; Works perfectly.
    $TestCommandLineSecond = "Welcome to Windows || ""This is going to be cool""" ; Something goes wrong!
    $TestCommandLineThird = "Welcome to Windows && ""This is going to be cool""" ; Works perfectly.

    $CommandLineFirst = ProcessCommandLine($TestCommandLineFirst)
    $CommandLineSecond = ProcessCommandLine($TestCommandLineSecond)
    $CommandLineThird = ProcessCommandLine($TestCommandLineThird)

    ConsoleWrite("Count: " & $CommandLineFirst[0] & @CRLF)
    For $Counter = 1 To $CommandLineFirst[0]
        ConsoleWrite("[" & $CommandLineFirst[$Counter] & "]" & @CRLF)
    Next
    ConsoleWrite(@CRLF)

    ConsoleWrite("Count: " & $CommandLineSecond[0] & @CRLF)
    For $Counter = 1 To $CommandLineSecond[0]
        ConsoleWrite("[" & $CommandLineSecond[$Counter] & "]" & @CRLF)
    Next
    ConsoleWrite(@CRLF)

    ConsoleWrite("Count: " & $CommandLineThird[0] & @CRLF)
    For $Counter = 1 To $CommandLineThird[0]
        ConsoleWrite("[" & $CommandLineThird[$Counter] & "]" & @CRLF)
    Next
    ConsoleWrite(@CRLF)

    Exit(0)
EndFunc

Why is the output for the string with "||" broken? As you can see CommandLine.au3 (in the "Source Code.zip") doesn't reference the "|" character at all, but works perfectly when used with "&&" and "++".

Count: 5
[Welcome]
[to]
[Windows]
[++]
[This is going to be cool]

Count: 5
[Welcome]
[to]
[Windows]
[]
[]

Count: 5
[Welcome]
[to]
[Windows]
[&&]
[This is going to be cool]

Anyone know why? What am I missing?

The problem  is in _ArrayAdd. It's been changed recently, so the pipe is used as a stringsplit.


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.
