How am I able to reference something in parentheses?
What I am trying to do is a line "if $1 != (rock) {" where 'rock' is my name and it will not do properly, saying that nearly everything typed for $1 will be equal to (rock). The thing might be that my nick is 'rock' and it could be confusing the thing somehow, but anything like "if $1 != (crayon) {" will work just fine.
All I really need in the end is a setup where if someone says (rock) as their first word it won't do anything, yet if they say it anywhere else or something else first it will do what I set it up to do. Any solutions?
