How do I save a file in notepad with the extension of ".mrc"? I saved it with ".ini" as the extension by just saving the file as "filename.ini" But when I tried that with the ".mrc" ending it ended up "filename.mrc.txt" Why is that?

or you can simply type this in mirc:
//write -c $mircdirfilename.mrc
then load the .mrc into the script editor, voila smile

Thing is I want to create a "filename.mrc" file. I am trying to write a script that loads scriptes into my remote area, when I click on the menu aoption. See this thread

Save it as "filename.mrc" (with the quotes around it).


Spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and stupid comments are intentional.

just a short comment here .. the .mrc files are nothing but .txt files with a different extension.
You aren't REQUIRED to have the .mrc extension .. mIRC will load any text file with any extension. It will load myscript.gar the same as it will load myscript.txt or myscript.mrc (or even myscript.biteme grin )

Also, you can save it as a .txt file in notepad and go to it with WinDoZe explorer and highlight the file, then hit F2 and rename it

(if you have disabled 'hide extensions for known file types' in folder options)
