1st off, dont post if u dont read the whole post.
yes, i know this has been asked about before,but khaled has yet to comment on it, so i have yet to care.
pre-post note: dont tell me to use .shortfn, i cant in the script i am using, dont link to or tell me about other threads for this unless they found a workaround i didn't see, dont tell me to use com unless ur gonna link me to a(or post it here) step-by-step guide on doing it and still getting the fname in a %var with the spaces, dont post if u dont read the whole post.
ok, i have a p2p program, and i noticed it had left some old files in the Incomplete dir, so i was writeing a script to write a batch file to del said files, (by checking if the fname $+ .sd file with hash info was there) and got some errors for files with consecutive spaces.
seeing as how this is a issue since the start of mirc scripts, i want to know why nothing has been done to fix it, u cant use consecutive spaces anywhere in mirc, not in /echo, not in $dll, not in /set, not in $replace, its not limited to $1- even a command to fix consecutive spaces for that script.
ps, i know the pre-post is kinda rude, but i see alot of the same thing on this forum, ppl give alternatives that almost never work for what the person wants the script to do, so i wantted to save ppl some time
