The speed of autoit when recording large amounts of data

3 posts in this topic

Reddit just posted a question regarding the pixels that a users mouse has passed over.  

One of the users mentioned making a program that would record all the pixels and the number of times those pixels were passes over for use in a graph showing the next years pixel frequency. I started thinking about using either an sql database or a text file for the desktop resolution of 1920x1024 and I immediatly think autoit is not fast enough to do this accurately. Would a more powerful programming language like Java or C# or etc work better for this? Can I somehow speed up autoit?

Someone already responded with a C# example in that thread. Beyond that, you should know the answer to a question as broad as

Can I somehow speed up autoit?


Edit: I don't know how you could get any more basic than this, but you are going to be limited by the highest speed of MouseMove:

local $iWidth = @DesktopWidth
local $iHeight = @DesktopHeight

For $i = 0 To $iWidth
    For $j = 0 To $iHeight
        MouseMove($i, $j, 1)

DllCall("User32.dll","bool","SetCursorPos","int",$i,"int",$j) will be faster than mousemove.
