does "exit" perform "fileclose"

10 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

hi,

when i open an ini by "fileopen", do i have to take care of closing it before the "exit" command ?

or does "exit" close all open files automatically ?

what happens on @error? is the file released ?

the question is because in my program there are several exit events.

i want to keep the file open until exit in order to prevent other programs from starting.

thanx

j.

why would you open an ini with fileopen? why not use the ini functions?

Fileclose is automatically done on exit, but you should still do it to make sure. INIRead and INIWrite do not require to use FileOpen else it will probably fail to read/write to the ini file.

because its a binary file, not an "ordinary" ini. there are no sections, keys and values.

i have to read out the complete string and transform it. on ending of program complete string is exchanged by new data.

:whistle: An INI file is a text file.

so sorry, maybe its not an ini.file, but its just called "ini". i didnt write that file, so its not my fault. i just alter it.

i have oftenly come across "ini" files which contain not only text but pure hex data in one single line.

so your right, i shouldnt have called it "ini", but okay, its name is "ini" anyway.

thanx anyway, my question is answered. "exit" performs "fileclose" to all opened files.

OK

The helpfile does recommend closing closing open files as a good idea before exit. The final choice is yours.

Remarks

Upon termination, AutoIt automatically closes any files it opened, but calling FileClose is still a good idea.

yep okay, but i dont have to take care of that in case of abnormal program termination ("sideway exits"). good news.

We should all do it to enforce good habits. One day you might find yourself using a language witch is not so fault tolerant.

Happy coding :whistle:

Are you sure the ".ini" file isn't just a renamed extension? Are you also sure that it's not encrypted?
