Adopting a practical approach, this timely book closes the gap between general and programming books on AutoIt and those on laboratory automation. Following an introduction to scripting using the freeware, the most important functions are explained before step-by-step explanations and additional software tools enable readers without prior knowledge to use AutoIt for automation tasks in their labs to streamline otherwise time-consuming and error-prone workflows. Many exercises are offered throughout the book following the idea of "learning by doing", and real-world examples illustrate applications of the technique. A supplementary website features additional software for downloading.
