I downloaded autohotkey.
strip doesn't work with the .exe produced by ahk2Exe.exe
Obviously not gnu associated.
Did you ever test it yourself?
I put it on mediafire for you didn't I.
It would have saved me the trouble if you had said any of:
Doesn't work.
Crappy idea.
or anything else really.

@dodicat: where did you get ahk2Exe.exe? It's not in my C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoHotkey folder.

@jj2007:
https://autohotkey.com/download
"Download AutoHotkey Installer"
"Custom Installation" > you can select "Install script compiler".
It is all portable (no installation)!

"Custom installation" worked, thanks. But the exe for a 772 bytes file is 870k... wow! UPX'ed it's 337k, still far too big.

@jj2007:
AutoHotkey is an interpreter, and compiling an AHK script is not a real compiling, the interpreter and the script are joined to one file. (My whole adventure here in FB is associated to the fact that a small tool I need would be 400 kB or so.)

But AHK is an extremely potent script language, it is a joy to work with it!!!

And for me, in my current situation here in the world of FB, it is interesting to see how many things are so easy to implement in AHK and so difficult in FB...

That's right. AHK and FB are different tools for different purposes. The languages they each compile/interpret happen to resemble each other slightly, but that's about it.
