lol, heres more info:

what i have to do is "filter" the nicks like i am doing with the while loop i made, then i have to send them to the socket thats connected to the server, so when then channel window opens, i get the nicknames in the nicklist, JUST the nicknames, if i dont "filter" them, then my nicklist looks like:



so i am looking for a "faster" way then my while loop to "filter" and send the names back to the server, (thats what it is, the raw for /names) cause these while loops, when joining a room with alot of ppl, has ALOT of names to "filter" so i am trying to find a faster way to filter them then a loop...

understand what i mean now, or need more info :P
