The SQL feature suggestion
got me thinking about script loading. When I run mIRC on my USB FlashDrive it appears that mIRC takes FOREVER to load even a handful of script (when pulling up the editor or saving in the editor).
What I was wondering is, has anyone tried to hijack mIRC's read/writes to its script files (via DLL). I know you can load a DLL when starting mIRC, so having this DLL support available right away wouldn't be a problem. Is this even possible with the Windows API?
This could allow a DLL designer to create compiled, compressed, and/or encrypted script files, by acting as a go-between interface. The main purpose I would want this is so that reading say 12KB of a script would only need to access about 2KB of diskspace (6 times faster!).
