Well the reason I started this thread was not for playing a game. I don't see how brackets would improve a single messages speed enough to notice a difference. The reason why I started this thread was because code adds up quick!
One single line or response doesn't make much difference, but when one command turns into a few different processes while other processes are running, it all adds up!
Thank you for clarifying.
It seemed to me that the help file that was shown as an example was someone's opinions about how mIRC works. It seemed to have some valuable ideas for the intermediate scripter, but wasn't completely accurate. Just one guys opinion. Nothing wrong with that, it all helps, but it is hardly a "bible" to base anything on.
My question was answered well. I appreciate your help!
