say if i put an alias called "s" in aliases
then make a new script called "s.mrc"
and write one line: on *:start:{ echo -s $s }
$s returns the alias file, i think $scriptdir should return the remote $s was called from.

That sort of behaviour would probably break a lot of scripts. It would be useful to know the location of calling scripts (It'd be great for custom errors, for one thing), but I think there should be a new identifier for it and for $scriptline if it is implemented.

Then again - this problem is simply caused by bad coding and is therefor easily fixed...

Perhaps the addition of something like $trace(), which could be used to trace backwards through functions/events...

eg. $trace(N) with properties .type (event, function, raw, etc.), .function, .script, .scriptline, .scriptdir, .event (ctcp, text, input, etc.).

I'm not sure if a .scriptdir property would be worthwhile if .script is there, but whatever.


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

Yes, that would be nice.
