I am hacking about some code for an event handler and rather than handling the event straight away, as it does now, I'd like to execute large parts of it after a delay.
So I am using something like:
timername 1 60 aliasnametobeexecuted
However, because the code was created to run normally, without delays, it makes extensive use of $nick and $chan and so on ... so will not work with the timer delay, since it blanks out $nick $chan etc.
Is there any way of setting the values of $nick and $chan so they are preserved across timer events?
So in other words I'd like to be able to do:
timerX 1 60 hello
msg $chan Hi there $nick!
; ... and lots of other code that uses $chan and $nick
timerX 1 60 hello $chan $nick
msg $1 Hi there $2!
if at all possible
