1) If I paste a line that's too long, it would be nice if mIRC at least warned me that it was cut off (preferably indicating where: "Your message was cut of after '...this is very'"). I often paste long error messages and then get told "I only saw it up to..."

2) I'd like an option to keep mIRC from EVER sending lines pasted, without first prompting (if > 1 line) or just leaving the data on the input line.

What happens is this: I'm pasting something and it may or may not end in a CR. If it does, it's gone, sent, over, done. If not, then I can add closing punctuation etc.

Or I'm pasting multiple lines and sometimes it prompts (if it's more than some number -- maybe this is configurable already, but if so, I haven't found it) and sometimes it doesn't.

The reason behind this is that in most (?) other IM clients, nothing goes until you hit ENTER or click SEND. And I use several, and often wind up pasting stuff in IRC, not expecting it to go. Yeah, if I were trainable, this wouldn't matter ;-)

Anyway, what this would add is a scan for CR in the data (after stripping trailing blanks). If there is only one, at the end of the data, it would be stripped; if there are > 1, then that count would be compared to the count specified as an option (or I'd be satisfied if the option was "always ask before sending multiple lines").

Do you mean:

mIRC Options (Alt + O) > Other > Confirm > Confirm when pasting [color:blue]N or more lines of text.[/color]

Edit: Brax beat me to it. laugh

Well, yeah, that's exactly what I mean...! Well, 99% of it. I'd actually like to be able to paste a SINGLE line and *see* it before it goes.

IOW, if:
1) I have 2 lines copied, and I paste, my newly set "Confirm when pasting 0 or more lines of text" will kick in and I'm happy.

2) I have one line copied *with CR" and I have "Confirm when pasting 1 or more lines of text" set: mIRC strips the trailing <cr> and puts the text on the input line, for me to edit/etc.

3) I have one line copied *without CR": same behavior as (2).

This is something that mIRC doesn't know. The server is what cuts off the lines, and every server uses a different legnth. The way I have solved this, was to make a script that automatically splits my lines into 2 or more lines if they are too long.

Done with the "confirm paste" feature

Here is a scripted solution. It may not be perfect, but it should do most of what you wanted.

Code:
on *:CONNECT:.msg $me $+(MLT-,$str(,512))
on me:^*:NICK:.msg $newnick $+(MLT-,$str(,512))
on me:^*:TEXT:MLT-*:?:{ set $+(%,MCL.,$cid) $len($gettok($rawmsg,3-,32)) | haltdef }
on *:DISCONNECT:unset $+(%,MCL.,$cid)
alias maxchars return $iif($($+(%,MCL.,$cid),2),$ifmatch,512)

on *:INPUT:#:{
  if (($inpaste) &amp;&amp; (!$input(Warning: Do you want to display this line?,y))) halt
  if ((/* iswm $1) &amp;&amp; (!$ctrlenter)) return
  var %mcllines = $ceil($calc($len($1-) / $maxchars))
  var %mcllen = $floor($calc(($len($1-) + $len($str($target $+ ..,%mcllines))) / %mcllines)))
  var %mclpre = $calc(%mcllen - $len($target $+ $chr(32)))
  while ($left($1,%mclpre)) {
    msg $target $v1
    tokenize 32 $right($1,$+(-,%mclpre))
  }
  halt
}
