I don't run any anti-virus
and i've found the problem
and it's a mIRC bug
i'll show you.

see the + and arrows going up and right in the 'clones' bit?
The mIRC editor doesn't like them, i just replaced the + and arrows with other characters and mIRC saves all the code fine.

Norton does this with certain $decode() scripts.

If that's the case I would definitely call it a bug.

Can you tell us the ASCII numbers of those chars?

If you have a literal ASCII codepoint 26 (ie. the value returned by $chr(26)) in your text then mIRC will only read up to that point. It's because on Windows this the End-of-file character which shouldn't appear in plain text files.


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

Font i use to chat with is: Consolas
The script editor font is: MS Sans Serif

The 3 chars i was using were

$chr(24)
$chr(26)
$chr(43)

My guess is that it's the first 2 and not the + char

Going by what Starbucks said above, try using $chr(26) in your script rather than the literal character.

yeah i'll try that.
Bizarre one though, even in the script editor it shows up as an actual arrow pointing right, i'd of never of thought that in a million years.

If you're using the same font in the script editor as you are in your theme (and you should be, consolas is THE coding font!) then it would appear as the same.
