#263 closed Feature Request (Rejected)

Drop PluginOpen()/PluginClose() in favor of an #import statement

Reported by: Valik (inspired by Zedna) Owned by: Jon
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:

Description (last modified by Valik)

One idea is to drop PluginOpen() and PluginClose() and use a pre-processor statement like #import. This removes the load-on-demand functionality of plugins but also removes the need to clean up when done using the plugin (since it's not cleaned up until the script terminates).

Could somebody please explain what this ticket is about? The title is vague and the text assumes prior knowledge of some list I don't remember.

Here is copy of original old AutoIt TODO list:
http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?s=&showtopic=12701&view=findpost&p=224110

Briefly said:
Plugins - #include architecture menat that instead of PluginOpen(some_plugin.dll) should be something like #include "some_plugin.dll"

It should be similar to including a3x files in current AutoIt.
