Recursive logical loop ;/

Recommended Posts


I need to rewrite this bot to avoid a stack overflow. I am new to Autoit and didn't realize what I was doing, the bot works for a few hours, then it has to close. Can someone please consider rewriting it to avoid this? It is a long script and I don't want to share it too much, so PM if you think you can help.

Welcome to AutoIt and the forum!
How can we help as we know nothing about your script?
Which program do you automate? Why can't you post your code here?

Very funny, not!


Please do NOT PM me your code. I suggest you first read the Recursion tutorial in the Wiki and then try to spot the problem yourself. If you cannot, then either write a reproducer script (which often lets you find the error) or redact the current script so that you can post it here (at least explain in more detail why you cannot if that is the case).
