Is there a reliable way to ensure that data assigned to variables in a script is overwritten or deleted when the script exits? I have scripts that encrypt/decrypt data and would like to ensure, if possible, that the encryption keys and decrypted data do not stay in memory after the script exits. Thanks.
Currently, I'm working on a program that will display Dialog boxes with either Yes or No.
For each dialog, I reward the user with X amount of Credits.
I'm hoping to output the amount of credits to a cell in a column (there will be 20 different columns).
It will only post to a row that is equal to today's date (first column). If no row exists yet with the current date, it will start a new row.
Here test example of a dummy program with random added controls to the main form:
If #include <GuiListView.au3> is commented out, then this simple program uses around 3,5 MB of RAM. When #include <GuiListView.au3> NOT commented out - RAM usage is around 13-14 MB.
How can I reduce memory usage? Even if I'm not using GuiListView.au3 - 3,5 MB quite a bit for a such dummy program!
I found out that using this DLLCall in main loop:
DllCall("psapi.dll", "int", "EmptyWorkingSet", "long", -1) Significantly reduces RAM usage (even with GuiListView.au3 included, from 13-14 MB to 600 KB !!! ) but I'm not sure if it's doesn't have any impact to common workflow of a program...
So, give me any advice about that, please.
am using an ini files as a History
Sometimes the file size is be larger to 5 MB
AutoIt does not recognize the full content of the file
When I did a search to find out why, I discovered that INI files could not be read if they size larger than 64 KB.
for that I preferred to ask here if is there any way to bypass this obstacle.
The contents of the file are as follows
This is the section for reading the file (adapted from my main script)
case $continue Local $aArray = IniReadSection($WaitingListFile, StringEncrypt(true, "filesList", $MyPassword)) If Not @error Then Opt("GUICloseOnESC", 1) _GUICtrlListView_DeleteAllItems($scList) For $i = 1 To $aArray $path = path_list(StringEncrypt(false, $aArray[$i], $MyPassWord), 1) if FileExists(StringEncrypt(false, $aArray[$i], $MyPassWord)) then GUICtrlCreateListViewItem(_GetFileName(FileGetLongName(StringEncrypt(false, $aArray[$i], $MyPassWord))) & Opt("GUIDataSeparatorChar") & " : " & Opt("GUIDataSeparatorChar") & FileGetLongName(StringEncrypt(false, $aArray[$i], $MyPassWord)), $scList) else $path = $path endIf Next GUISetState(@sw_disable, $hGUI) GUISetState(@sw_show, $hGUI2) GUICtrlSetState($SClist, $GUI_FOCUS) else if $accessibilitymode = 1 then speak(str("listEmpty")) endIf endIf
Is there any way to solve this problem, please?
am waiting your answers...
