I just got a weird reply over at the PSPad forums:
That sounds a little hostile towards AHK!? I've never worked with AutoIt, but from what I'd read here and there, I somehow thought that AHK was more like AutoIt v2.0...
If you use AutoHotKey you might want to have a look at AutoIt, which is the original scripting language in which AutoHotKey was based. It is much more powerful than AutoHotKey (you can even create GUI programs, which can be compiled, it can also create COM objects, has Regular Expression capabilities and more). It also has a nicer syntax!
Do some research and you'll find out that AutoHotKey actually "borrowed" most of its source code from an older version of AutoIt.
Check it at: www.autoitscript.com
You will not regret giving it a try!
Could someone please clear this up for me?
