Thanks a lot guys smile

I've not had chance to try these out as I've kinda stepped away from mIRC and computers in general now due to personal reasons, and I'd not received e-mails to say I'd had replies therefore completely forgot about the thread.

I will point out, that for what I wanted to do, the alias file (an .ini file loaded in the Aliases tab of Scripts Editor) would always be something along the lines of acromancer-styles.ini and $aliasname would indeed be used in a loop to grab each and every alias name (which would be listed in a 'Styles' combo box for the end user to choose the desired output style for their acro's).

I hope this will come in handy for somebody else at a later date.
