C++: AHK source code: potential A_ variables

21 Aug 2018, 14:13

- Here are some potential AHK A_ variables written in C++.
- Once inserted into the source code, and compiled, they work just like any other built-in variables.
- I would welcome people to post better more efficient versions of the A_ variable code.

Code: Select all

==================================================

for AHK v1: A_ variable names:

A_AhkDir
A_AhkName
A_AhkNameNoExt
A_ChrSize
A_Comma
A_DQ
A_LoopFileAttribValue
A_LoopFileNameNoExt
[LoopFileTimeUTC] A_LoopFileTimeAccessedUTC
[LoopFileTimeUTC] A_LoopFileTimeCreatedUTC
[LoopFileTimeUTC] A_LoopFileTimeModifiedUTC
A_Recent
A_ScriptNameNoExt
A_ScriptPID
A_WA

- note: perhaps A_AhkXXX and A_ScriptXXX should both refer to the path of the compiled exe, when applied to compiled scripts (for use with #Include)
- note: perhaps there should be an option for where A_AhkXXX points to when the script is compiled
- note: if 'global A_XXX' were allowed in scripts, then new variables could be used without problems in all past, present and future scripts
- note: perhaps A_ScriptPID could be retrieved once and stored in a permanent variable

- note: I since thought of a new idea for handling A_LoopFileTimeXXXUTC, all 6 variables could point to the same function, and if the number of characters is 24+, use UTC
22	A_LoopFileTimeModified
22	A_LoopFileTimeAccessed
21	A_LoopFileTimeCreated
25	A_LoopFileTimeModifiedUTC
25	A_LoopFileTimeAccessedUTC
24	A_LoopFileTimeCreatedUTC
- note: I since realised that GetCurrentProcessId can be used for A_ScriptPID
