I didnt know if this was a bug or not. If it is not is it possible that this could be added to a future release of mIRC.

alias _test { _test2 }
alias _test2 { return ok }

alias _test { echo -a $_test2 }
alias _test2 { return ok }

Otherwise use:

alias _test { _test2 }
alias _test2 { echo -a ok }

... that's not the point.

I am working on a script that does a whois and then sets a varibable with the whois information... Then it takes the idle time and returns the value... But it doesnt return because mIRC doesnt work like that. And all of it is in like 3 different aliases. I also dont want to echo it because I might use it for scripting purposes.

What's wrong with
Code:
alias _test { return $_test2 }
alias _test2 { return ok }


Whenever you use $_test, you would actually use the return value of $_test2 ("ok" here)


/.timerQ 1 0 echo /.timerQ 1 0 $timer(Q).com

i know what u are trying to do, that's impossible, cuz first of all, in your whois code the /return doesn't know that it's belong to your $identifier, it's other event and /return returns the value only to your alias from the same alias. also, $identifier won't wait to a response from the server or something it will just do the commands in the alias and return only what u /return 'ed from the alias.

ok well I am asking for it to not be impossible and be added to a future version of mIRC.

Hehe, looks like everyone forgot about $result.

alias _test2 { return ok }
alias _test { _test2 | echo 4 -a $result }

ok

$result contains information from the last /return, even if the alias that /returned wasn't called as an $identifier.

Well. At least I won lunch.

he is trying to make an IDENTIFIER that will RETURN someone's idle, it will /whois the user and /return the idle to the identifier. impossible.

it could be possible...
if your mirc freezes and only unfreeze when the response of the whois comes
or
if just the script "freezes" (halts) until the response comes...

the last is better, but i dont know exactly if this is possible
