simple string error?

15 posts in this topic

Okay it's late and I may be getting stupid here.

What am I doing wrong? This is the error I get:

==> String missing closing quote.:

Funny thing is that until I added Oct-Dec it gave me no error.

Hm, it seems to be a strange bug (even two bugs).

Try this (it's cuted out), it's working fine, but as soon as you will add any character right after the last 26, you will get the error (syntax check is ok btw). And the second bug, is that when ytou uncomment the last part, you will get the same StringLen() as without this addition, very strange:

Curious, I got the expected result when I ran your code. But I stay away from long line continuations because of line limits as Zedna had mentioned. I generally will just do something like:

But I stay away from long line continuations because of line limits as Zedna had mentioned

Me too, but i don't think here is the issue with long lines, because the limit is on one(?) line lenght, and here we use more than one line (via & _). So, or it is an AutoIt interpretation bug, or it's just an incorrect doc description (of the limitation), and it should actualy say that the limit is not only on one single script line, but also on all lines that truncated with & _.

And if it's really a line lenght limitation, then also Syntax check should alert on such situation, for now it's say that there is no errors at all.

Well with the continuation line, it's still considered to be 1 line.

So with variables and @CRLFs and quotes you're at 4206 characters.

The line limit is 4095, so I don't really see where that's a bug.

Ok, now i see, it's not a bug. But i think the docs should be updated a little, don't you agree? (to prevent confusing by other users).

Not really. _ makes AutoIt ignore the next @CRLF (or newline).

Both. :( It doesn't need a doc update, if you realise that _ does not start a new line for AutoIt.

Wow - thank you all so very much for your quick and thorough response.

My confusion was probably caused by the Datatypes and Ranges information that indicated "String Can contain strings of up to 2147483647 characters."

I wrongly assumed for some reason that a page of text could be entered via source and did not realize there was a line length limit MAX_LINESIZE. Zedna had the clue.

MrCrestoR - with the "26" at the end there are from the first $ in $calendar to the ending " in 26" exactly 4143 characters. So subtracting out the 48 line continuations we end up at 4095 the MAX_LINESIZE.

SmOke_N - I will use the concatenation approach.

Thanks again - ahha

I am realising, and that's the point, it's me, and it took to me a while to understand it (with your help guys :(). So, then what we can expect from newbies?! :mellow:

@MrCreator, this is the confusion that makes sense to me. A different error message saying something about MAX_LINESIZE would make more sense than updating the documentation.
