Away Script

By xdesoto on Dec 07, 2010

Okay, just an updated version of my previous away...
make sure you set the variable %p password here
and change your nick to what you want
type /a then put your away reason then when you're back type /b

on 1:input:*:{
  IF ($1 == /a ) {
    set %away.reason $$1
    if %away.reason == $null { set %away.reason %default }
    amsg Away: %away.reason 
    away %away.reason
  ELSEIF ($1 == /b ) {
    pass PUT PASS HERE
    amsg Back: %away.reason /Time: $Duration($awaytime) 
  else {

True true. Hey at the least, you could say it's nice and short, just do the job and get it done! I'm pretty sure you can find someone with a thousand-line away superscript. Whether it's because it's fluffed with comments or useless crap, or can even file your taxes for you, it's probably there.

Thanks Jethro_ and IllogicTC I'll check it out see if I like it better or not It's the current away script I use it's up to anyone else if they want to use it and change it

I would like to mention the same thing from a performance standpoint. If your mIRC is looking to see if you said /a EVERY TIME you every type ANYTHING, some people who utilize this snippet MAY notice a slight loss in responsiveness whenever they are doing their thing on mIRC. And you already use a variable set "%away." so if you want to unset them all in one fell swoop, just /unset %away.* to remove all variables involved in the snippet at once, when they return from being away.

To me, I don't see the point to enter the command onto the active window and initiate a trigger. An alias can do the same thing. You should add an extra dollar sign to this:$$?="What Reason" so when the variable value isn't filled, you won't just get this: :|:Away:

Again, your else return serves no purpose.

Jethro_: what would be the difference in an alias and input (i know the difference) but Why would an alias be better...
Ryan: thanks I changed that in my script..
Tidum: It's my script, I don't care for too many variables.. and my away nick is always [away]

Jethro   -  Dec 07, 2010

Use an alias for this...I wouldn't bother with an input if I were you. But then again, it's your snippet...:P

Also, kick the bad habit of using "else halt" or "else return."

Rather than:


Why not do an "on LOAD" event to set the var for it.

on *:LOAD:{ set %anick $$?"Enter away nick." }

Then that line could be:

nick %anick
