A few things I wish mIRC had:


Count number of occations of a certain word in a text file, with or without wild cards.

Show in private window when user change name and quits or join server.

Italic text code (like bold ctrl+b).

Large uncomment in scripts like /* ... */ or simular.

I think that's what mIRCscript is for...

I would love C-style comments in my scripts :tongue:

You can use ;comment for comments.

; comments are annoying. For example, I make a .mrc file. There is one alias I want to disable, but I don't want to delete, it it just doesn't work yet so I want it disabled. Adding a ; to the beginning of each line is a pain, adding a /* at the beginning and a */ at the end is much easier. The reason people have given against this is it is hard to tell when you are inside a comment. I say, so what? For years people have been using the #if 0 #endif as a means of commenting out large blocks in C. No IDE I've ever seen color codes this, yet I've never heard of anyone going crazy because they didn't realize the code they were working on was in a comment...

Of course I know about the ; comment but it is not easy to use on large parts.

With syntax highlightning the large uncomment can easy be seen (I suggested this in another thread).

you -don't- need to use italics to _accentuate_ *your* words.

Well, it can be done with #groups, but they don't work inside of an alias/event frown
/* */ comments and syntax higlighting would roX.

Yes you really dont need much (almost every features is useless to someones, and not really vital) but it would be very good to have it, like for example use italic on the users that are idle.

Code:
* { }
** { }
*** { }
*/ { }
**/ { }
***/ { }

test {
  /* This is a Comment */
  /*** This is a comment too as
   *** long as every line starts with 1 to 3 asterisks
   ***/
}

Using a command seperator (|) would not be advised... shocked
