if ($nick = username) || ($nick = someone) || ($nick = mirc1) { alias }

I have a long list of nicks - can you suggest a better way to add them?

You can also use the $count

if ($count($nick,username,someone,mirc1)) {

$findtok will do it too.

$count() is quite different for two reasons, one of which isn't so obvious:

Code:
if ($count($nick, username, someone, mirc1)) {


is an equivalent check to:

Code:
if (username isin $nick) || (someone isin $nick) || (mirc1 isin $nick) {


if the OP specifically wants to check for equality then this approach isn't suitable. there's also another slight difference in that, with $count(), mIRC will go through the entire string once for every extra parameter supplied even after one of the substrings has been found (whereas with an if statement the search is terminated once this happens). this difference might not become apparent for a small number of parms and smaller strings but can become a significant issue in other situations

Another option is to use the Users page, and make your event only trigger for those users.

Just to be sure... if you're talking about your own usernames, you can also use $me.

You can use this method and check a saved list of nicknames.

%var = nick1,nick2,nick3

if ($istok(%var,$nick,44))


$hget(table,nicks) = nick1,nick2,nick3

if ($istok($hget(table,nicks),$nick,44))


You can also use isin which is faster but not as accurate.

if ($nick isin %var)

$nick = tru
But a nickname stored, Truth, would return $true but not be accurate.

I'm not sure why you replied, I'm the one who suggested $istok and 'isin' isn't what the OP wanted since he used == ('=' actually but..) for an exact match

I'm not sure why you posted. You want to try to prove some superiority? If you read my post I showed him that he could also store the nicknames in a dynamic list like a variable or hash table.

Relax bro.

I wasn't being rude or anything, sorry if it looks like I was.
But you replied to me rather than to the OP and as said, yes I think your post doesn't add anything useful to the thread
