Complete Newb to AutoIt: Program Flow - Puzzled

5 posts in this topic

I have a LOT of years using C and Assembler.

In both of these disciplines there is always a specific start (& end), e.g. int_16 main( void)

I have run through the examples and (re)read tutorials but neither explain clearly, to me, the program flow.

I get the function defines, makes complete sense. Some scripts do have a Main_, most do not.

Pointers to where I can look to explain the flow would be appreciated.

The flow of a script is abolutely up to you.
But I suggest the wiki to get some inspiration for good coding.

Take your point. I'll read and try to absorb ^_^

If it doesn't resolve my difficulty I'll come back, cap in hand.

@fopetesl if, after reading through the wiki, you're still unsure, post a description of a task you would be looking to complete, and we can walk through the flow.

The flow of a script is top down, unless there's a function call it will go from line one to line x. This is for general usage scripts, there're always exceptions.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
