Mainly I am trying to get a feel for how many closet AutoIt3 scripters are lurking out there (hence I didn't ask about WSH, Perl, or any number of other scripting languages). From appearances this looks like an All-Autohotkey shop, but appearances can be deceiving.  I know I've seen one or two of you in the AutoIt3 forums.  Make yourself known! Are there coding snacks that will never be written because the person who has an interest in writing it is more comfortable with AutoIt3? (And it is respectfully requested if possible that this is not turned into a debate as to which is better, that seems to have been covered in previous threads)

I must add, that i am not using newest version of AutoIt though. I am still with V 3.2.12.0, as i need to run my scripts still under Win 9x, ME and such.

So i can't say anything about the new features in newer versions.
