In Perl I know how to do a fair amount of things with RegEx, I'm wondering if there is any change between how Perl does RegEx and how mIRC does it.

Thanks in advance.

About all i can tell you is that afaik, mIRC uses the PCRE (Perl Compatible Regular Expressions) library, web page You may find the tutorial at this web page of interest.

You could also use the search feature here, all forums, all posts with regex as search word for any threads on the subject (prolly most are in the scripting area)

Hope this helps.... sorry, but when it comes to regex or perl i am virtually clueless

As parabrat said, it uses PCRE, which provides a 98% emulation of Perl's regex. So if you can do regex in perl, you should have no problems in mIRC.
