Acronym Replacer Using Regex

By chicknh8r on Sep 24, 2006

To use this snippet...

  1. Copy this code
  2. In MIRC, click "alt R"
  3. Locate your "on *:input:" section
  4. Paste this within your "on *:input:" section.

Now, whenever you type any of the acronyms within the "$regex", it will be replaced with it's corresponding acronym replacement.
This is my first attempt at using "$regex".

on *:input:*: {
  if ($regex($1-,/(afk|brb|bbl|lol|omg|stfu|rofl|roflmao|ttyl)/i)) {
    say $replace($1-,afk,Away from keyboard,brb,Be Right Back,bbl,Be Back Later,lol,Laughing Out Loud,omg,OH MY GOD!,stfu,Shut The FUK Up,rofl,Rolling On Floor Laughing,roflmao,Rolling On Floor Laughing My Ass Off,ttyl,Talk To You Later)

That regex is absolutely pointless with the way chicknh8r has set up. chickn8r should have used $regml(1) in place of $1- for the $replace. The snippet can work fine without it though.

This script is good as in it doesn't echo (aka lol Laughing Out Loud> both get inputed to the chat) but if I try to change my nick to afk it makes it Away From Keyboard. Suggestion would be to find a way to make it to where it only changes the word if it is by itself and not attached to something else like a nick or in a /me action or in a /notice or /notify or other server command. Just a thought.
