On networks that allow local channels, prefix &, the /msg command is not working, returning such an error: "* /msg: invalid window"

Interestingly, I tested it on mIRC 7.47 and it works correctly. That is, it was some recent change that broke the command.

Despite the error, mIRC is returning $chantypes correctly.

I can't confirm this bug.

On EFnet:
/join &testing
/msg &testing test 123

works fine for me.


Well. At least I won lunch.
Good philosophy, see good in bad, I like!

At EFnet it worked here.

However, at VirtuaLife, no. irc.virtualife.com.br

Just the /msg command does not work, since /say works and typing straight into the channel edit also works.

Can you reproduce on 7.55 or 7.56? Looks like 7.56 is the one breaking the change.

Thanks for your bug report.

Based on your 005 results, the reason for this is that the server is using the same & prefix for both channels and nicknames.

In this case, /msg sees that the parameter begins with a nickname prefix, so removes it, but then finds that the result is not a valid channel name.

I am going to remove this check in the next beta, although I believe someone may have requested this check for a reason.

That said, there are many routines in mIRC that, in some contexts, check prefixes to determine if a parameter is/is not a channel/nickname. By using the same prefix for channels and nicknames, the server has made this somewhat ambiguous.

I tested the previous versions, the error starts in version 7.53. That is, version 7.52 was the last one that the command worked on.

rockavera: Indeed. That's the version where all the messaging commands had a major overhaul and unification internally.

Code
29/11/2018 - mIRC v7.53
20.Added /privmsg command.
21.Added support for CPRIVMSG and CNOTICE. If listed in numeric 005,
   PRIVMSG and NOTICE will be automatically upgraded for most
   outgoing messages if you are an op/voice on a channel and message
   a user on the same channel.
22.Added support for numeric 005 STATUSMSG=@+ and WALLVOICES and added
  commands /vmsg, /vnotice, and /wallvoices. If server does not support
  STATUSMSG, WALLCHOPS, or WALLVOICES, mIRC uses own method to send to
  multiple targets.
23.Changed line splitting method for long messages when:
   1) Sending message through editbox of a channel/query window.
   2) Using commands /ame /amsg /describe /me /msg /omsg /privmsg /qme
   /qmsg /query /sound /vmsg /wallchops.

   Note: when line splitting, the /sound command switches to an ACTION
   message for the second line onwards.

   Note: line splitting is not performed on NOTICEs, so is not applied
   to /notice /onotice /vnotice /wallvoices.

24.Changed multiple target handling in PRIVMSG and NOTICE so that if
   TARGMAX or MAXTARGETS are not specified in numeric 005, mIRC assumes
   the maximum is one target per message.
