example:
Code:
var %time = 20
set -u $+ %time %nick nick
  


That will set %nick to nick, then unset it 20 seconds later

alias test {
set %testu 10
set -su $+ %testu %testv on
returns
* /set: invalid parameters (line 3, script5.ini)

perhaps i should have mentioned both would be global for now

Code:
alias test {
  set %t 5
  set [ -u $+ [ %t ] ] %v LOL
  .timer 1 3 echo -a %v
}


Works for me. The timer was just to get the variable contents ('LOL') after 3 seconds to make sure it kept it.

Thats pretty close to optimal try //set $+(-su,%testu) %testv on
