Is there any way to force mIRC to run a command, ignoring any aliases that might exist?

eg:
Code:
alias query { echo -a hello world }


If I run /query nickname, it will echo 'hello world' to the active window - I want to override that alias, and make mIRC process the command. Is this at all possible?

Prefix the command with an exclamation mark.
/!query nickname


/.timerQ 1 0 echo /.timerQ 1 0 $timer(Q).com

/!query

Using an exclamation mark ignores any scripted aliases and performs the default mIRC action. (this does not apply to identifiers, only commands)
