#2127 closed Bug (Rejected)

Obfuscator /striponlyincludes does not process block comments correctly

Reported by: Koder <rick2000@…> Owned by:
Milestone: Component: Other
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Obfuscator, striponlyincludes Cc:


Obfuscator (v1.0.28.7) /striponlyincludes leaves the block comment end directives (#CE, #comments-end) within the obfuscated script. The actual comment and the comment start directives are removed as expected.

Example: script

MsgBox(0, "Hi", "Hello world")
	Block comment 1
	Block comment 2

Example obfuscated script:

MsgBox(0, "Hi", "Hello world")

The obfuscated script still compiles and runs. But there are at least two other Obfuscator (/striponly) bugs similar to this one since after build AutoIT, but I can't determine the conditions. One results in a zero size Obfuscated script file. The other is simply a skipped include file. My best guess is that the position/order of the #include directives within the script. But my scripts are 3-5 thousand lines not counting included scripts and I cannot yet recreate with smaller examples.

Obfuscator is not official AutoIt tool. It only happens that the creator of that tool is AutoIt dev. Obfuscator has its own thread in examples script forum, try posting there.
