As has been said, I don't have an objection to mIRC supporting some sort of feature whereby you can specify a protocol and a program as links, or if it supports every protocol (though how mIRC would define between iuergheiu:// and <realprotocol>:// I don't know).

I do have an objection to mIRC solely adding support for such protocols as "ed2k://" or "dchub://", and I have explained why.


I agree with both these comments.

Yes this can be problem sometimes, but how many times you type something like qwerty://something anyway. laugh
So it can return just a message like "Error unknown protocol" or similar... *shrug*

Well thats your freedom to like or dislike smile
I just personally dont see why it's that bad...
We could get the same effect by posting eg. http://myed2kpage.blah which would open browser and then follow those links from there.
imo following ed2k link and downloading those files using some other program is just bit different then using mIRC itself for downloading.

I would appreciate it if you didn't do such immature actions as typing the same line in different colours in any further replies.


Point taken though I cant quarantee it.... (if someone asks how to make script to display same line in different colors I will probably answer him/her if someone dont do it before me.grin)

That's a side-effect of mIRC supporting a perfectly legitimate, useful and constantly-used protocol (HTTP). That is not mIRC specifically supporting Edonkey or whatever. That's like arguing mIRC can be used for privately spamming people because it supports /msg, or supports sockets so you could send spam emails or SMS messages.

It is different from downloading with mIRC directly. However, it's still mIRC specifically supporting a file sharing protocol for absolutely no IRC-related reason other than to make file sharing via a 3rd party more convenient.

I am quite confident this won't get added unless support is added for protocols en masse.

True it is... and i didnt really try to say that it should be added as as only one... (for sure i personally dont care about it at all laugh (I just dont use those progs... nor dcc sends.))

In a way, by looking how many 'dangerous urls' are spammed in IRC maybe even the http hotlink could be removed :P (apparently the warning message dont seem to stop people to click them.) but then again... you cant stop people to be stupid...

Btw.. about filesharing... we could argue about why ftp:// is supported...

Cheers

ftp:// does not link to a specific file sharing program. As a file sharing protocol it is used much more legitimately than anything previously discussed in this thread, just like http:// is used far more legitimately in comparison to any of the infectious files it may lead to.

Almost every program I know that supports links/urls in some way or another support all protocols (<anything>://<anything>)


Yes this was what I meant. I one day had talk with my brother who had made a song and wanted me to test it then he typed dchub:// addres for me and it didn't work at mIRC so I had to copy paste it so that I could get to hes hub. And this is because isp did block he's irc send somehow. That made me think why not mIRC support ALL ****://**** links? Because that is really in any talk program besides mIRC. And it seams so that other protocols are not suported too so Why not add support for all urls startin <a href="any://any.any.any?" target="_blank">any://any.any.any?</a>

Will it be easy to add and will it harm anybody? I think no.

id like to see maybe a remote event? since the format is generally in something along the lines of

somestr:// etc you coul dhave like an event that could handle clicks of suspected links

on *:UnknownLink:http:{
; http just as an example
; $1 = http
; $2 = the rest
run iexplorer.exe $1-
}

also you could do UnknownLink:*: etc i duno just a thought...

As I said, I believe ON HOTLINK could be used to cover this, atleast to a certain extent.

mIRC will catch invalid protocols the same way it does with /run:

Quote:
-
* /run: unable to open 'xyz://xyz'

I'm against the integration of such protocols in mIRC. And they are not really protocols, if you don't have the proper software installed, IE (for example) just won't know how to deal with the link. I think that everyone who wants such feature should code it for it's own use.

If the appropriate software isn't installed then the protocol won't be registered with Windows and mIRC won't hotlink it. Simple.
