i foudn that when trying to load data from an ini that all control codes are stripper from the start of the line. is it intentional?
i fixed it by adding a normal charactor to the start of the line and using $right(readini_code,-1) .. a little work around for now.. but it'd be nice for it to work correctly.

Cheers

mIRC has never saved control codes to ini files. A better way of saving information like that is storing it in a hash table and having the table load when mIRC starts and saved when mIRC is closing.

Doing this alone is risky. You should save the table everytime there's a change, or at least more frequently than just saving it in the end. That's because in case mIRC closes with an error, the ON EXIT event won't be triggered.

Fact still remains it strips the control codes and shouldnt need to do so.
