Question: Why is Autoit slow?

5 posts in this topic

First of all, I don't want to insult anyone, I love autoit, but it just seems like it's very slow at some times... I can open a ~60mb hex file in a hex editor in < 10 seconds but an autoit hex editor takes > 10 minutes to open a 5mb file... saving images, processing lots of commands, reading pixels, it all seems very slow... Is this a problem on the programmer's end, or something about autoit? Just wondering. Thanks

If by programmer, you mean you... Then yes, a lot of times poor speed efficiency is the coders fault.

To understand other speed issues, the first thing you need to do is understand what an interpreted language is.


Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

Those things are not what AutoIT was made for!

Is this really an interpreted language? I thought it was not longer one once it was compiled...

And I'm not opening a 60mb file, I can't even open a 5mb one...
