It would be good if a help file was supplied wouldn't it? and even better if there was a section something like 'File Directory and disc management'. I don't know why it hasn't already been done.

Serial port communications UDF Includes functions for binary transmission and reception.printing UDF Useful for graphs, forms, labels, reports etc.Add User Call Tips to SciTE for functions in UDFs not included with AutoIt and for your own scripts.Functions with parameters in OnEvent mode and for Hot Keys One function replaces GuiSetOnEvent, GuiCtrlSetOnEvent and HotKeySet.UDF IsConnected2 for notification of status of connected state of many urls or IPs, without slowing the script.

If you would have searched: Working

You would have found it, there in black and white...

But this is what you needed right?

Next time, search a bit harder!

typing "Working" in index of help file does not find this at all not even the @WorkingDir help unless u actually type the symbol "@" and that only gets you how to call it not how to set it? I found the answer by finding this thread. I think this is easily remedied by adding tags to index search that will lead you to the "FileChangeDir" and "@WorkingDir" that or add links under "@WorkingDir" that take us to "FileChangeDir" help file would have saved me and others like me 15 min of searching for the most basic of basics :).

Press F1 in the SciTE-Editor will open the Help. Select Search and enter the keyword.

That's not much of a challenge, is it  ;)?

Make a new thread next time, instead of a reviving a decade old thread. The answer to most of the basic questions is in the help file.
