$scon(0) give the network connection count $scon(1) returns name of 1st network using a while loop u can then loop thru all netorks and set yourself away. its simple scripting and if u cant do it im sure someone could give u a lesson in its uses, if u want to learn type /help $scon and for while loops /help while loops

alias away {
if ($1 != -g) { !away $1- }
elseif ($1 == -g) { scon -a !away $2- }
else { !away }
}

You don't need that last else statement (picky, lol :tongue:)

without the else { }
i would need:

alias away {
if ($1 != -g) { !away $1- | return }
elseif ($1 == -g) { scon -a !away $2- | return }
!away
}

because if i just had:

alias away {
if ($1 != -g) { !away $1- }
elseif ($1 == -g) { scon -a !away $2- }
!away
}
that would set me as away then set me as back, or just set me as back crazy.

or ...
Code:
alias away $iif($1 == -g,scon -at1 !away $2-,!away $1-)


/away -g this is my multi-net away smile

But I didn't say you'd need that last !away either. I mentioned the else statement (meaning, the whole line).
Code:
alias away {
  if ($1 != -g) { !away $1- }
  elseif ($1 == -g) { scon -a !away $2- }
}

Your last else statement would cover $1 being $null, however the if statement already covers this ($null != -g). That's what I was talking about.. smile

oh:
if ($1 != -g) works even if $1 doesn't exist?

Yup.. you might want to optimize some of your code if you didn't know about this one.
BTW, take a look at EVH's alternative, that would be a better one in similar cases.

i thought: if ($1 != -g) { /this would only work if $1 existed }
i never use stuff like that, i just use /return.
i don't have a single else { } in my script.

That /return method is not always as efficiently applicable, so I'd rather use /else(if), but it's ok doing the job anyway I think, as long as it's some personal stuff and/or code readability and speed aren't needed for everyone to use. If the latter is the case, however, I'd say give a chance to /else(if) and $iif() :tongue:

PS: my signature doesn't lie..

I'd use this:
Code:
alias away {
  if $1 == -g { 
    var %a = $2-
    scon -at1 !away % $+ a 
  }
  else away $1-
}
1) I can't stress this enough... using $1-, $2-, $did(), $input() and generally variables/identifiers of unknown content in /scon -a is not a good idea. /scon adds an extra evaluation level. This can lead to unwanted evaluations which, in the worst case, can even be dangerous. For example, if one typed //away $!me is away, one would expect the away message to be "$me is away" but in fact it will be "cold is away". Now imagine that with something as nasty as $findfile()...
I used % $+ a, so that the command executed across networks will be "!away %a" and not "!away <evaluated $2->".

2) The -t1 switch is necessary if you don't want mirc to halt with an error if one of the sessions isn't connected.

3) Minor detail, but you don't need the exclamation mark for the first /away, as it is a fact that an alias cannot call itself directly. So any /away command within the alias will be treated as the default mirc command. This is not the case with /scon though, so the ! is necessary there.

Thanks, I was aware of the extra evaluation thing. I forgot to warn them because I was talking only about the else statement thing, not really looking at anything else (i.e. the -t1 switch, which was already mentioned above). Good for everyone to read this though.. smile
Personally, I wouldn't use a -g switch anyway crazy
