OOP and Lambdas Missing from AutoIt

Recommended Posts

I haven't used AutoIt in a long time. I'm planning to get back into it since I've read how much it has matured as a language. But from what I remember AutoIt is missing object-oriented programming and lambda expressions. Are there any plans to implement these in the future? Do you think AutoIt and its users would benefit from having these features?

I know there is AutoItObject which exploits COM to provide pseudo-OOP, but I would like to see real OOP built into AutoIt and also lambda functions. Most programming languages support these things. AutoIt is a great language, especially now, but its missing these things. I don't mean to start a debate or anything but I wonder if maybe these things should be implemented.

Maybe it's too much work right now? Maybe it's not feasible? What do you think?

nice writing in that link... I loved the last bit "Asking for an addition to Opt() is the same as forfeiting your life as far as I'm concerned." LOL, so great

to the OP, you should always use the appropriate tech/language where it's needed. There is no one language to rule them all.

This comes close I feel https://github.com/genius257/AutoItObject-Internal although com based its really flexible

And assigning functions to variables give you a lot of flexibility if you want for customizing logic/syntax

$a=classA_b()
$t=$a
$a=classA_a()
$t=$a

$a=classB_b()
$t=$a
$a=classB_a()
$t=$a

func classA_a()
    consolewrite("a_a" & @CRLF)
EndFunc
func classA_b()
    consolewrite("a_b" & @CRLF)
EndFunc
func classB_a()
    consolewrite("b_a" & @CRLF)
EndFunc
func classB_b()
    consolewrite("b_b" & @CRLF)
EndFunc

Most, really?


This wonderful site allows debugging and testing regular expressions (many flavors available). An absolute must have in your bookmarks.
Another excellent RegExp tutorial. Don't forget downloading your copy of up-to-date pcretest.exe and pcregrep.exe here
RegExp tutorial: enough to get started
PCRE v8.33 regexp documentation latest available release and currently implemented in AutoIt beta.

SQLitespeed is another feature-rich premier SQLite manager (includes import/export). Well worth a try.
SQLite Expert (freeware Personal Edition or payware Pro version) is a very useful SQLite database manager.
An excellent eBook covering almost every aspect of SQLite3: a must-read for anyone doing serious work.
SQL tutorial (covers "generic" SQL, but most of it applies to SQLite as well)
A work-in-progress SQLite3 tutorial. Don't miss other LxyzTHW pages!
SQLite official website with full documentation (may be newer than the SQLite library that comes standard with AutoIt)

The thread link for the OOP topic seems to be dead, does anyone know which topic it is?:
