Creating Config File For Script


Recommended Posts

Is there a help file for creating a config file for your script so it can be flexible?

Edit: Also, do people read the whole fricking manual for beta version to be a good scripter? I want to learn more about scripting with autoit and the manual looks like a big bible. Do you need any background in other languages to be good in autoit or can you start with autoit as your first scripting language?

As for your first question, creating a config file for your scirpt is not difficult... Look up the INI* functions in the helpfile.

And that last part... Yes, AutoIt can be your first scirpting language. I found it easier to learn than most others. No you don't need to read the whole manual. Well... It mostly depends on your style of learning. I learn best by examples, so I learned by disecting other people's code... using the helpfile when needed or asking on here.

Sounds like I'm in the same boat too, using AutoIt as my entry into scripting/programming. Granted, I'm still a newb but I feel like I'm getting better all the time.

I find the help file amazing, it explains most everything clearly and gives some nice examples too! And like it has been mentioned already the forums are the other great resource, no end to the genius on here. Between the two I haven't had much issues I could resolve.

Back to the first part, something that I've been trying to impliment is creating custom UDF's that my other scripts hook up to via the #include command.
