thank you raccoon your help was appreciated! after looking @ what you did i was able to find the solution i was looking for!
changing the -s to -w and replacing the [ ] with $chr(91) $chr(93) seemed to do the trick. ya i do note the char's that an ini vs nick can conflict with, so i have chosen to replace those with appropriate chars for data recall
Help is allways appreciated!
