AHK can be only used on windows.Is there any alternative which is as easy as AHK and is cross platform?

I mean as ahk is so easy that any non coding person can start to code in few weeks.What u think?is there any chance that ahk becomes cross platform.

Funny that you mention ahk as easy to learn, even for non coding persons. I am a coding person and it took me ages to write an ahk script. AFAIR it has a "new" and an "old" syntax, which was confusing, and it's parser was very sensible to whitespaces in the code. If you feel ahk easy to learn, you can definitely move without a problem to any other language.  You should take into account: java, python, perl, javascript, even c/c++, maybe c# (Mono) and a lot of others.

On the other hands side, the recording and replay stuff of ahk is suberb.

Unfortunatelly, i think not arunpawar Sad
But autoit is pretty similar and from what i can understand, it can be used with other languages.

Is it possible to check the system time with ahk,then create a todo list to pop up everyday when we reboot out computer?

is there any function to check that new date for the system then popout the new todo task for that day? and open that task everyday as msg box when we reboot our system.

Should be not problem. Autohotkey has a builtin variable containing the current time, it can create popups, and you can start the autohotkey script from the startup folder. This means the popup is shown as soon as an user logs in. Where does the data (todo list) come from and how do you manage that data? Maybe an application like ToDoList does the job, too?

mahesh2k: wouldn't that be a bit of overkill?
I mean, there probably are tons of apps out there that already do that.

Perhaps you all find AHK to be easy, but I didn't. For non-programming minds like mine, Macro Express is great.
