Two bugs found: $isfile & chatlinks

Two bugs found: $isfile & chatlinks - 03/07/05 11:53 AM

bugs in mIRC 6.16:

1. $isfile()

A file with name "ip" is ignored by $isfile().
Example:
Create a file named "ip.txt" in mirc directory,
then //echo -a $isfile(ip.txt)
returns $false .

2. chatlink port

First, in mirc Options dialog, IRC -> Catcher -> chat links,
uncheck "Confirm requests". Then, click on a chatlink, mirc
will connect to a wrong port number.

That's also the case for prn, con, shadow, nul and various others.
Anyway, it's not a bug.

Yes but that's not strictly true. The name "ip" may be restricted as a device name but a file called "ip.txt" (or even just "ip" for that matter) in any given directory is perfectly acceptable in Windows.

I'm aware of that. However, if mIRC is intentionally programmed not to write to those filenames (which it is, as Khaled said) then it's not a bug smile

Seems a security measure.
