Indeed there isn't such an option, but with the use of filter, this is a fairly easy task.
Here's an example: //filter -ffcr 5-9 versions.txt tmp | play -se tmp | .remove tmp
That would play lines 5-9 from the versions.txt
(if you have that in your main mIRC folder) to the status window.
The filter flags are as follows:
f = input is a file
f = output is a file
c = clear outfile before outputting data to it (just in case if the file would exist)
r = specify a range m-n of lines
The temp file is immediately removed, even during the playing of the output. That's because the contents are first loaded into memory when using /play.
