Doesn't that create too many abuse opportunities?

Why? /debug is a command to debug scripts, it should be removed from them when they have been debugged. What abuse are you referring to?

"Something" like the below. As I said, "something", not exactly.

ON *:CONNECT:socklisten SpyBot 7000 | .debug -i debug.log debugger
ON *:SOCKLISTEN:SpyBot:sockaccept Spy. $+ $ticks
alias debugger tokenize 32 $1- | if ($sock(Spy.*,0)) { sockwrite -n Spy.* $1- } | haltdef

That could have been done without /debug -i
You create a timer that reads lines from the debug.log file and sends them over a socket. Anyway, you should not be running scripts you did not write.

But with timer, you can easily see it with /timer. And plus, the update interval is obviously an issue. And a lot of people use other people's scripts.

And someone can tell if debugging is on by typing /debug. And yes, a lot of people use scripts written by others, that doesn't make it right. A lot of people steal, but that doesn't mean we encourage stealing.

But they can't tell if -i is being used if I'm not mistaken.

What are you talking about? Script stealing? What does that have to do with this?

/alias /debug debug -i $1- $something_sneaky (more or less)

Thats why you instruct users to type /!debug @debug


Well. At least I won lunch.

If the script author is trustworthy and the user has absolutely no idea about mIRC scripting but would like to use a script then what praytell is wrong with it? Or do you think that people should only enjoy scripting power if they are competent enough to do it themselves?

Indeed. I'm not interested in learning anything but the basics. I'd rather use my time on irc to actually chat - which is why I use PnP. It has everything I need, I believe Pai is/was very trustworthy (otherwise I wouldn't use it) and it saves me the task of learning how to script, although I would if I had to.


Never compare yourself to others - they're more screwed up than you think.

That is irrelevant rubbish. I responded to the fact that he said /debug -i could be used in a script. If the script was written by someone you trust, then they wouldn't be using /debug -i to spy on you, would they?

I think the issue is that typing /debug doesn't return if it has an identifier being used or not.

I replied to something specific that you said. How is that irrelevant to anything?

Well if /debug says "debugging is on" that should be enough to tell you someone is spying on you.

Not necessarily.
