    "Powerful yet easy to use... Awesome!"

    March 30, 2014   |   By mootrix

    Version: AutoIt 3.3.8.1

    Pros

    Easy to use, if you are already familiar with programming you will be right at home. If you are beginning you will find a lot of resources at your disposal, including a well designed help file.

    Very large number of commands, you can automate almost anything!
    (simulate keystrokes and mouse movements)


    Comes with a great source code editor with has numerous features (SciTE Lite)

    Cons

    None that really jump out. If you get errors make sure to read the error message displayed, it may be something simple like incorrect syntax or forgetting to include a relevant file.

    Summary

    Autoit is a great scripting language that can do almost anything and has lots of commands. Even beginners can appreciate the ease of use and sheer power of this tool. Plus you can easily create GUI based programs too!

    One thing I should mention is that you should get to know as much of this tool as possible. There are lots of cool things waiting if you just look for them. Like Au3Record.exe for recording macros with a click of a button (included with Autoit) and ISN AutoIt Studio (separate download) with can simplify various things like GUI creation.

    "AutoIt: Answer to Enterprise level scripting"

    January 23, 2014   |   By WilliamTylerAst

    Version: AutoIt 3.3.8.1

    Pros

    AutoIt works to many advantages. It is lightweight, it is straight forward, and it is very easy to understand and use. It has a huge knowledge base (almost any problem, I can google for a result) and it has the functional to perform any task I need done. It is also compatible with any other scripting language. You can run AutoIt to run a batch and then return a success code and depending on that code decide what needs to happen next. Great framework scripting service.

    Cons

    I have yet to run into any problems with AutoIt except the ones where I just make a mistake. A very solid language.

    Summary

    I would recommend this scripting language to anyone. Those that have had a history of scripting, and those that are just coming into the industry. It is quick and easy to learn while also not limiting the user in any way.
