Linux?

6 posts in this topic

Well unfortunatly it looks like I have a computer that runs on linux (bah hum bug). Are there any suggestions out there with writting autoit like code for linux? I was hoping I might be able to force a file copy from the linux machine to a network drive that way I can do some file manipulation on a windows machine however I don't think that autoit runs at all on linux (I don't want to just try it and have the whole system take a dump).

Thanks

Maybe you can try to use an Virtual PC to install Windows on? QEmu i.e.

no, autoit does not run on linux, it's a windows binary! Search the forum for "linux" to find some scripting suggestions for linux (bash,perl,python, etc.).

Or give WINE a try. I know that I've seen someone else comment about how they could run some AutoIT scripts under linux with WINE. I don't know how, or what the capabilities/restricitons are, though

EDIT: I am certain that you will have very limited functionality, but maybe you can get done what you need to. On the other hand, scripting in a language which is supported natively in Linux will avoid any potential problems (except that of learning the new language :))

Go with bash (shell scripts), seeing as linux still has massive amounts of support for the CLI, damn near anything can be accomplished with it.

they are the linux equivalent of a windows batch file, but with a lot more power as far as system manipulation goes.
