Is there an AutoIt "Coding Standard" available yet?

Recommended Posts


Please has anyone written an "AutoIT Coding Standard"?

This is essentially a document which advises on "good practice" when

developing AutoIT scripts and discourages certain syntax or code

structure likely to cause program errors or later confusion when

making program changes?

If so, is it available for download so as to kindly save me from having to write one myself? :-)

Thank you in advance,
