Hello ppl,

I've hust made this code to know how much lines does a user wrote:
alias fnick { filter -gwf $active nul /^<(?i) $+ $1 $+ >\s.+/g | echo 2 -a * $1 wrote $filtered lines. }

but the problem is there are sometimes prefixs beside their nicks and i cant skip them:
<@big> blah ...etc
<whoami> @@
* big wrote 0 lines.
* whoami wrote 13 lines.

Try this:

alias fnick { 
  filter -gwf $active nul /^&lt;[\Q $prefix \E]? $1 &gt;\s.+/ix 
  echo 2 -a * $1 wrote $filtered lines.

I came up with a similar one but just a character shorter: /^<[\Q $prefix \E]? $+ $1> ./i

Edit: pretty much the same since you used the extra +

Using the regexes already presented here:

; $fnick(<channel>,<nick>)

alias fnick return $fline($1,/^<[\Q $prefix \E]? $+ $$2> ./i,0,2)

; Example: //echo -a whoami wrote $fnick(#mirc,whoami) lines

To anyone trying out this code: note that it is tailored for whoami, as he doesn't use a timestamp, and the regex is not incorporating for it neither. Moreover, if you use a theme of some sort that displays the nick differently, obviously it won't work. It would have to be tailored exactly to fit your specific needs.

I've used this. so what do u think ppl:
/^\S{0,2}(?i) $+ $1 $+ >\s.+/

am new in regular expression but Sigh's tutorials helps me alot smirk
oh btw who can send me some regex challanges so i can imporve my reggy skills

by the way ppl i just wants to know somethin' that i counldnt found in every regular expression tutroials. which are the things after the slash:
Posted By: FiberOPtics Re: $iif within $regex - 18/10/05 01:12 PM
Those are modifiers, which will set an option in the regex that will result in a certain effect.

I'm too lazy to list/explain all of them, so I took them from tidy_trax's Wildcards & Regular Expressions tutorial:
  • /A
    This can be used instead of putting a ^ at the start of your expression.

    //echo -a $regex(abc, /a/A) will echo '1' because the string started with 'a'
  • /g
    This makes the regular expression match all matches instead of just one.

    //echo -a $regex(aaa, /\w/g) will echo '3' because it matched all 3 as.
  • /i
    This makes the regular expression case-insensitive.

    //echo -a $regex(A, /a/i) will return '1' because it no longer cares about the case of whatever it's matching.
  • /m
    This will make ^ match the start of a newline (\n or $lf) as well as the start of a string and $ match the end of a line (\r or $cr) as well as the end of a string.

    //echo -a $regex($crlf, /^$/m) will echo '1' because when the /m modifier is used ^ will match a linefeed and $ will match a carriage return.
  • /s
    This means that '.' will match any character, including newlines.

    //echo -a $regex($lf, /./s) will echo '1' because '.' now matches newlines too.
  • /S
    This will strip control codes from the string before performing a match.

    //echo -a $regex(04a, /./gS) will echo '1' because after stripping "04" from the string it only found one character.
  • /U
    This reverses the behaviour of greediness (see the "greediness" section)

    //echo -a $regex(1234, /\d+/U) will match '1' the + quantifier is no longer greedy.
  • /x
    This will ignore all spaces from your pattern except for those between \Q and \E or { and }, it also allows you to enclose comments within # and # in your expression.

    //echo -a $regex(ab, /^a #this is a comment# b$/x) will echo '1' as the /x modifier removes all spaces from your pattern so it becomes equivalent to /^ab$/
  • /X
    This will return 0 if you use \ that doesn't have a special meaning.

    //echo -a $regex(\y, /\y/X) will echo '0' as \y has no special meaning.
