I am beginning to learn the techniques of mIRC scripting, but yet at the same time I consider myself a veteran of the C programming language. As I was browsing through the mIRC help file, reading about variables, I found something that could be considered a very good suggestion, and let me tell you smirk

In C, you can modify the alignment of variables within a string by using numbers before the statement, such as:
strlen (buf, "Hello %-14s!");

I think it would be really cool to see alignment variables such as so in mIRC, such as when you do something like this:
alias hello_world {
  var %i = world
  echo -a Hello %-14i !

I understand it would probably be hard to do something like this, but I think it would be a very cool feature, especially with those MTS theme things and custom layouts and so forth.

Any opinions?
