Ok, I couldn't resist delving a bit deeper in the docs! :-)
Some suggestions (see docs for MS-WinAPI MessageBoxEx function):
- function show_message(caption, msg)
Add a third optional string parameter allowing the user to select the
kind of msgbox to show: "info" (default), "warning", "error" or "question".
Add a fourth optional (string? table?) parameter indicating the buttons
to be shown to the user: "ok" (default), "yesno", "okcancel", etc.
Add a string return value indicating how the user dismissed the dialog:
Another useful additional parameter would be a timeout value, after
which the box would be dismissed returning a special value "timedout",
but I suspect this couldn't be a quick and easy thing to do.
If these seems too high level, a toned-down approach could simply add a
third optional table parameter with a list of flags which will be OR-ed
toghether (of course the flags, such as MB_ICONQUESTION, should be added
to the constants list of "winapi").
- class Process
Add a method path() to return the actual process path in the file
system. I don't know if this is easy to do (maybe not, since autoit
doesn't have it), but it could be possible since Sysinternals'
"ProcessExplorer" shows it.
The need for that feature for me arises when trying to tell apart
concurrently running processes with the same name (say two different
lua.exe processes created running two different versions of the
interpreter, lying in two different dirs).
