Try this:

Code:
alias clearall {
  var %a = $findfile(\whatever-the-folder-pathroot-is,*.txt,0)
  while (%a > 0) { 
    write -c $findfile(\whatever-the-folder-pathroot-is,*.txt,%a)
    dec %a
  }
}

Heh... I just realized that /clearall is already an alias within mIRC, for clearing all windows' text.

Change that to /clearfiles or something... lol

noop $findfile(foldername, *, 0, write -c $1).shortfn

That'll clear all files in foldername and in any subfolders of it aswell. If you just want to clear the files in that specific folder use:
noop $findfile(foldername, *, 0, 0, write -c $1).shortfn

Note: $findfile() as used above will also return the number of files cleared if you need it.


Spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and stupid comments are intentional.

ahh yes, a demonstration of noop... cool.

Thanks starbucks_mafia, I saw the $1 command regarding findfile but wasnt sure how to set it up. /noop makes that nice.

Your code demonstrates one of the "don'ts" in mIRC coding. Using $findfile within a loop like that is incredibly inefficient. $findfile has its own looping mechanism (as demonstrated above) which is the most efficient method you can use.
