i heard about this language from a friend who said it was great for making macros, and i was like "yay, i need macros". so i started lookin into it, and i was like "yay, another programming language to learn!" then after a while, i was thinking, "shit, another language to learn." i dont need alot to be done, all i need is for this to run in the background and press "2" every x amount of seconds, where x is easily modified. could someone be so kind as to write me a little program to do this for me?

[edit] it would be great if it had an exit script button also, but im sure thats assumed. F12 would do fine.

Well it is really simple to learn. here is an example.

Hotkeyset("{F12}","endthis") ; sets a hotkey to run function

Sleep(10000); start in 10 seconds
while 1; this starts a loop
send("2"); this is what key to press
sleep(2000); wait 2 seconds before continuing
wend; this starts the loop over W(hile)END

func endthis(); this is a funtion
exit ; exits program
endfunc

Personally I like to just pause my macros, so I use pause key :)

Hotkeyset("{pause}","pausethis"); sets a hotkey to run function
$x=1
pausethis(); starts it paused
while 1; this starts a loop
send("2"); this is what key to press
sleep(2000); wait 2 seconds before continuing
wend; this starts the loop over W(hile)END

func pausethis(); this is a funtion
$x=NOT $X
while NOT $x
sleep(1)
tooltip("Paused",0,0)
wend
endfunc

heh heh, well if I can't make you try, I can stuff code with info. :)

What do these two lines mean:

$x=NOT $X

while NOT $x

F12 is used by many things, I normally use Pause or Printscreen.

Hotkeyset("{pause}","pausethis") ;sets a hotkey to run function
$x=1               ;Dimentions and gives value to $x
pausethis()       ;starts it paused
while 1            ;this starts a loop
send("2")         ; this is what key to press
sleep(2000)        ; wait 2 seconds before continuing
wend                ; this starts the loop over W(hile)END

; a function is like a little program or subroutine that runs when called
; in this case it is called every time you hit the hot key.
; it is ignored until called.

func pausethis()  ; this is a funtion
$x=NOT $X         ;this changes $x to NOT $X   Logical think multiply by -1
while NOT $x       ; if 1 then -1 if -1 then 1, see
sleep(1)              ; just a really fast pause for CPU
tooltip("Paused",0,0); show newer versions of windows a tip that it is paused
wend                   ; same as above
endfunc               ; ends the function and goes back to program

I think it is far easier to read without the comments, but..

thanks guys, i was able to mod it to fit my needs just fine. couldnt get the pause to work right, so i just set it to run a 10 sec timer at the very beginning.
