Return empty string on failure for _ArrayToString

Reported by: anonymous Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


There are mixed returns for the _ArrayToString function, the proper representation of the string created from the array, -1, and 1. Returning anything other than an empty string could be interpreted as a valid return for this function. Could all of the failure returns from this function be changed to an empty string?

A quick example:

#include <Array.au3>
Local $aArrayOfNum = ""
ConsoleWrite("Numbers in $aArrayOfNum = " & _ArrayToString($aArrayOfNum) & @CRLF)

Even though $aArrayOfNum is not a valid array it returns a value that could be interpreted as a valid return.

No the doc is correct as a array is not return is this case so the error checking must be done by checking @error.
It is as the return of UDF function handle such error.
You may find discrepency in other UDF but not in this one
