AutoIt3

3 posts in this topic

Im sure this question has been asked before, and I know im probably asking a bit too much from AutoIt. But is autoIt just run as scripting code or is it converted to machine code then compiled?

Like for example the functions aren't stdcall or cdecl functions and you cant get the address of these functions correct?

Autoit is interpreted language. Compile precess means it creates "copy of Autoit3.exe" and adds encrypted your script to it which is at runtime executed.

With Autoit you can't make DLL files so address of functions has no meaning in this case.

AutoIt is an Interpreter language. Although the syntax is totally different, the idea is much more like Perl that C. And like Perl, AutoIt can do calls to a COM object or a DLL. If that description doesn't cut it, peruse the Developer Chat part of the forum.
