« on: January 21, 2009, 02:34:07 PM »
Do you know what this means!?!?!

AUTOHOTKEY FOR LINUX AND MAC!!!11!!one!1elevn!!1!

IronAHK is a rewrite of AutoHotkey for .NET and Mono to provide cross-platform compatibility, increased performance and smaller binary file sizes for compiled scripts.

Announcement here: http://www.autohotke...orum/topic34421.html
Code here: http://code.google.com/p/ironahk/
Future website here: http://www.ironahk.net/

Currently there's no binaries and a fair bit of work that needs to be done, but if you're brave you can pull the code from svn and check it out.

As I'm such a Mono whore, I just had to try compiling this on Mono. Unfortunately, the developers don't expect you to be compiling this under Mono on Windows, thus you have no build solution. Attached is my attempt to compile IronAHK by hand. It is untested. If anyone knows the devs, please ask them to rectify this oversight, or if you manage to build IronAHK from the makefile on windows successfully, please let me know how. Also please let me know if my build is rooted (easily possible) and I'll try to see what went wrong.

The absence of AHK under Linux is possibly the only reason that prevented me to switch to Ubuntu permanently.

In addition a more active development cycle is planned with features such as:

    * Arrays, 128bit math and Unicode
    * Data mining functions - XML, JSON, SQLite and MySQL
Nice ! :-*

ooh! Arrays! in ahk :)!
I know, it sounds pathetic that a programming language doesn't give you arrays (it's like eating with no bread), but this was exactly the case for ahk.
