Hello, I think your Autoit's language is perfect with clever syntax without unnecessary things (";" at the end for each line like C based languages,PHP ). Many languages force developers to reinvent basic things (for example, so as to create a directory whatever if this one exist AutoIt do it with only 2 words, many other language must have 6 lines or more: I think many developers become exhausted to do poor things because of this principle).

I encourage AutoIT for Windows (I regret that it is not bult-in in Windows so as to help to deploy softwares). I want to be proactive to learn a language which would be compatible with other OS than Windows (linux, Mac OS) but according to me no language reach the AutoIt's level.

I began to use PHP wich is interesting but I think this language is a draft and they could have better syntax (especially for different comment when we switch from HTML to PHP in the same file).

Is there a project for a Linux or MAC AutoIt? (except the famous Wine for Linux)

Thanks

As regards

Arnaud (France)

AutoIt is a Windows exclusive language. If you desperately want to use AutoIt, the latest stable runs perfectly fine in Wine on both OS X and linux (Ubuntu-based, anyway).


I will answer every single PM, and you are free to ask anything anytime.

That is so kind @slidy56fr. Thank you for your nice words. Bringing AutoIt to other operating systems would be immensely difficult. Not only are the APIs for window control vastly different, so are the actual UI control schemes.

In my view, we currently have plenty of room to improve AutoIt on Windows. We have historically not looked at other platforms and currently are not looking either. Many thanks again for your interest.

Thanks @slidy56fr! Unfortunately, no such project exist... and never will be :(, See the Not To Do List of AutoIt. As Manadar pointed out, AutoIt hugely depends on the Windows APIs, Porting AutoIt to other OSes would require complete rewrite form scratch :(

      Hello,
      have anyone ever tried to start the editor on linux-Ubuntu ? I tried some scripts and some of them works like notepad, while other doesn't.
      I do use wine, but i might don't know how to configure it to start autoit.
      I uploaded a file with the error i got (the program SciTe.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close. we are sorry for the inconvenience.)
