I've omitted script path from the output

It works when omitting the Au3Check #AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Au3Check=N

You right but I think that there will not be a solution as the way Au3check is implemented is difficult to analyse all AutoIt Syntax
I Will have a try but don't expect a solution
Sorry for not being able to fix it

Serious gopping syntax - why not write it correctly:

ConsoleWrite( ( (1 = 1) ? ("yes") : ("no") ) & @CRLF)

jpm, I would not waste your time trying to get Au3Check to deal with such an appalling construct. Much better to use your time on something useful.

Thanks for the quick and very informative feedback jpm.
It's a small bug that properly will affect less than 1% i imagine.

And Melba23,
It was a quick way to provide one line of code that could illustrate the problem.
I mostly use ternary as a way to if else statements so it would be more like


$a = Random(0, 1, 1)
$b = Random(0, 1, 1)
$c = Random(0, 1, 1)


Func a($a)

Func b($b)

Func c($c)

Anyway thanks for the time invested :) .

I am afraid I regard something like that as really bad coding practice - particularly the way you have it with absolutely no parentheses to help anyone else understand just what is going on. I pity anyone else who has to maintain your code if it is all like that. But if you are happy.....
