Re: Download Email Via Command Line

For Popclient to work (can get here- https://web.archive.org/web/20140709163500/http://www.codeode.com/popclient/popclient.zip ), you will likely need Stunnel ( https://www.stunnel.org/downloads.html ).

Re: File/Text encoding issue Topic is solved

okay. I tried the popclient.exe. I can't get any connection to my mail servers, therefore it was not possible for me to examine the encodings of the retreaved textfiles. A manual download of an email as .eml text gives me normal UTF-8. Sorry Happen to have come across this. For Popclient to work (c...

Re: Allow built-in variables as default function parameters

If parameters could have arbitrary expressions as their default value, I think it would be more useful if the expression was evaluated in function scope rather than call site... For the particular case of A_LineNumber, you can use the Exception() function... Cheers. That's another good one to know,...

Re: AutoIt vs AutoHotkey

It depends on what You need. I'm not saying that in absolute terms, one is better than the other in every way. All programming languages and communities develop and evolve differently, so have various advantages and disadvantages. WinBatch and AutoIt are automation languages that have existed for l...

Re: ImageSearch works great on one computer, not on another

Re: AutoIt vs AutoHotkey

This is a bit of a touchy subject, even though this is considered the more open and friendly forum. Partially because such a topic seems to attract or activate infrequently used accounts that will then go in on AutoHotkey pretty hard. Nevertheless, people have a right to their beliefs and to compare...

Re: Odd Behavior When Clicking AutoHotkey Doc Link

Afaik, autohotkey.net is an old domain which is not in the possession of the AHK Foundation. Back in the day of the old forums (pre-AHK foundation), it was used as a repository, until it was hacked badly and a lot of data and code vanished. So I guess we should remove that link... or replace it, if...

Re: Allow built-in variables as default function parameters

That's an interesting idea, but it does not solve my problem. Because of course A_linenumber, when passed as string, will only be evaluated in the body of the function and will not contain the linenumber of the line where the function is called True, A_linenumber in particular is a tough one.

I'm a bit suspicious that part of the the false-positive issue is various bad actors.

its to bad autohotkey its self didnt have a built in feature to password protect the finial compiled scripts code. Arguably, Lexikos's decision to not include any type of encryption was a good one. AutoHotkey has to deal with plenty of false-positives and stigmas as it is. The primary point of comp...
