au3stripper questions

Recommended Posts



this is the first time I notice Au3Stripper, it's a really great tool :D


Just wonder why doesn't it preexpand and remove the $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE constant?


#Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
#Au3Stripper_Parameters=/pe /sv
#EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>


Func Example()
    Local $sFilePath = "..\GUI\logo4.gif"

    ; Create a GUI with various controls.
    Local $hGUI = GUICreate("Example", 400, 100)
    GUICtrlCreatePic("..\GUI\msoobe.jpg", 0, 0, 400, 100)

    ; Display the GUI.
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI)

    Local $hChild = GUICreate("", 169, 68, 20, 20, $WS_POPUP, BitOR($WS_EX_LAYERED, $WS_EX_MDICHILD), $hGUI)

    ; Create a picture control with a transparent image.
    GUICtrlCreatePic($sFilePath, 0, 0, 169, 68)

    ; Display the child GUI.

    ; Loop until the user exits.
    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE


    ; Delete the previous GUIs and all controls.
EndFunc   ;==>Example

Also out the Iterations options, what are realistic max counts?

Au3Stripper removes unused functions and constants - and as that constant is used it stays, unlike all the others in GUIConstantsEx.au3. The app does not pre-expand - for that you can take a look at guinness' PreExpand utility.


Edit: Missed the final question - I find most scripts take 3-4 passes, but I always leave it at the default 5. In my opinion, if you are taking the time to strip the code, you might as well do it properly.

The Pre-Expand isn't performed for that variable as AU3Stripper is unsure how the variable is used in this case. The lexing probably should have the logic for it but doesn't stat he moment. 

As to the number of iterations: don;t think you need to worry about setting it as it continues till there are no lines to remove any more.

Thanks to both of you the quick answering,

I'll take a look at guinness' PreExpand, it sounds interesting.
