Special Variables/Funtions

$read [-L<#>]

Reads a line from a text file. The -L parameter can be used to specificy a particular line. If no $l param is included pirch will read a random line.


Reads a line from a ini file. See /writeini for more information

$file ""

Pops up a file dialog allowing you to select a particular filename to use. You must specify a caption between quotation marks!
example: WAV:/sound # $file c:\pirch\*.wav hopes you like this sound
By default, $file returns a fully qualified filename including the drive and directory. If you wish not to have the drive letter and directory name returned, use $-file. This will simply return the filename and extension.


This variable is only available for aliases executed within private message windows. This variable contains an address mask for the user that the window belongs to. This can be extremely useful for ignoring a user by address.
Example alias: F12: /ignore $addrmask
The address mask is generated by the same mechanism as ban mask and uses the default ban method indicated in the Ops section of the options dialog.
