How to install beta and stable on same machine

6 posts in this topic

Gad I feel dumb asking this question, as I'm certain I've seen this 100 times.  But I just can't seem to find anything after searching the forum, the wiki, the FAQs, and the AutoIt help file.  Would someone be so kind as to provide an RTFM link to installing and using a beta version simultaneous with the stable version?

I'm very interested in testing the new associative arrays.  However, I have numerous scripts that I use on a daily basis, and I can't really afford to have them broken when performing the tasks they were created to perform.  I don't mind testing them in the beta, but they need to work when I use them.

TIA

Just download the Beta and install it...In SciTE you will see options to run prod or beta (under tools)...

mrider,

Just run the Beta installer - it installs into its own folder inside the standard install folder tree and you can use either version without interference or problem. And if you use the full SciTE4AutoIt3 package you even get new menu items to enable you to choose which version you want to use to syntax check/run/compile your scripts. :)

That's freaking AWESOME!!

Obviously my syntax could be improved - I whipped this up with only a few minutes of thought - but check out the pseudo-object behavior.  Having maps that can take function addresses will allow us to create objects similar to how Perl does so.  I can't wait until this goes live...

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Local $aObjs[2] = [NewFoo(), NewBar()]
For $i = 0 To UBound($aObjs) - 1

;    Local $sMsg = ($aObjs[$i])["Output"]() ;<-- Granted, this is a bit stilted

    Local $sMsg = ($aObjs[$i].Output)() ; <-- Better, but could still be improved...
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Test", $sMsg)
Next


Func NewFoo()
    Local $mPseudoObj[]
    $mPseudoObj["Output"] = FooOutput
    Return $mPseudoObj
EndFunc

Func FooOutput()
    Return "Foo"
EndFunc


Func NewBar()
    Local $mPseudoObj[]
    $mPseudoObj["Output"] = BarOutput
    Return $mPseudoObj
EndFunc

Func BarOutput()
    Return "Bar"
EndFunc
