The settings continues to be, yes, but if your "Local Info" is set to server lookup, and you do /localinfo -h, it WILL do a localhost lookup.
Yes, I already know all of this.
It just doesn't change the mIRC setting. On this you are correct, but then, that's WHY mIRC has the -u/h options for the /localinfo command.
Well, maybe there is a reason WHY I would like to have the ability to change the setting this way! Do you have some reason as to why one should not be able to change the mode of look-up through the command?
To summarize, I would like to be able to set the mode of look-up using the /localinfo comand. I don't see why this would be an issue. If /localinfo -h served my purposes, I would not be requesting a way to set the mode in this manner.
