Script trigger another

Hi there,
Is it possible for a script to trigger another script? e.g. one script is needed to be run by many other scripts and it seems silly to copy that code into each and every script, plus a pain to edit any changes in this one common script. Is it maybe done with aliases? Sorry i'm rather new to this still, but I'm learning lol.

Thanks

Look at /signal command and the ON SIGNAL event.

Maybe an alias?

As suggested, look into using aliases. That's what they are there for. smile

Ok, thanks for the replies. One other question, when using /signal, is there a way to stop it saying * signal '<signalname>' in the server window?

Thanks

Use .signal rather than /signal

Note: this will only work from a scripted version.

The . makes the command silent
