Currency Converter

By Arigateaux on Sep 04, 2014

Based on Ayon's script, since it hasn't been worked on in a long time and it's the newest one available. Same commands still apply.

!convert N FROM TO
N is the number (can be decimal)
FROM is the origin currency
TO is the destination currency


  • Changed the website due to possible Terms of Use violation, plus Google is easier to read.
  • Added a new alias
  • Re-wrote large chunks of the script.
on $*:text:/[`@!.]currency \d+(.\d+)? \w+/Si:#:{
  if (%aflood. [ $+ [ $nick ] ]) halt
  ;set -u5 %aflood. [ $+ [ $nick ] ] 1
  if (!$4) {
    .notice $nick Syntax: [`!@.]currency [AMOUNT] [FROM] [TO]
  sockclose currency
  sockopen currency 80
  sockmark currency $+(/finance/converter?a=,$2,&from=,$upper($3),&to=,$upper($4))
  %# = #

on *:sockopen:currency:{
  var %% = sockwrite -n $sockname
  %% GET $sock($sockname).mark HTTP/1.0
  %% Connection: Keep-Alive
  %% $crlf

on *:sockread:currency:{
  var %s
  sockread %s
  if (*<div id=currency_converter_result>* iswm %s) {
    tokenize 32 $nohtml(%s) 
    msg %# $cx($1) $2-3 $cx($4) $5

; Written by
alias noHTML return $regsubex($1, /<[^>]+(?:>|$)|^[^<>]+>/g, $null)

; Modified by evilMonkey
alias cx {
  var %x = $1
  tokenize 46 %x
  if (.* iswm %x) tokenize 46 0 $+ %x
  return $iif($0 == 1,$bytes($1,b) $+ .00,$bytes($1,b) $+ . $+ $left($2,2) $+ $iif($len($2) == 1,0))))

You need to use the right dollar text. 'dollars' doesn't mean anything. AUD or USD etc

[14:46] <@User> !currency 4.5 EUR USD
[14:46] <@Bot> 4.50 EUR = 5.10 USD

This works great, and caters for btc! Nice one

Works good! Even better idea, you know how you can type any calculation in the google search bar and it will return an answer? Instead of making just a currency you can make everything. type in 10 feet in yards or feet in 2 miles and it always returns an answer in that little box. Just a thought, there were some but they dont work no more. Anyways this one is nice!
