I don't think it's gonna get much better than the _RemoteThreadX UDF before AutoIt get's native capabilities, but I wouldn't count on that anytime soon. Adding MT would require rewrites of alot of old code and the devs have said no for a long time, and I don't see any reason for them to change their minds.

But who knows what we get in Au4? >_< (whenever that is coming)

Multithreading would require a complete rewrite according the devs. It's not gonna be part of version 3.

Wasn't that what I said?

I expanded slightly. You said a lot of code. It's more like a dump everything and start over.

You will have to forgive my wording though. It was 2 in the morning.

For me "everything" = "a lot", but it doesn't really matter.

@gcue

Why did you ask anyway? Multi-threading is often overrated and can lead to more problems then solutions if used improperly. Most of the time a redesign of a loop or two can give the appearance of multiple things happening if that's what you're after.
