*/play [-aescpbnx q# m# f# rl# t#] [alias] [channel/nick/stop] <filename> [delay]*
Allows "playing" a file to a channel or private window, line by line.
_Empty lines are treated as a delay._
_See also [[$play]], [[$pnick]]._
-x - Treat the first line in the file as a regular text instead of line count if it is a number.
-a - Uses the [alias] parameter as the alias to be called instead of [[/msg]] or [[/notice]].
-e - Echoes the line to channel/nick window as it would send them to the server (if the window does not exist, a line of the form [[/msg]] <window> <line> is displayed in the status window).
-s - Can be used offline, will interpret lines as actual command instead of plaintext and execute them in the status window.
-c - Forces AdiIRC to interpret lines as actual command instead of plaintext and execute them in the specified window.
-n - Uses [[/notice]] instead of [[/msg]].
-p - Indicates it is a priority request, the current play request is paused and will resume once this one is finished.
-b - Uses the clipboard instead of a file, the clipboard is temporarily saved to a file with a name of the form playqN.txt, which is deleted once playing is completed.
-r - Forces a single line to be chosen randomly and played.
-fN - Plays the whole file starting from the specified line.
-tTOPIC - Forces AdiIRC to look up the specified topic/section (INI structure) in the file and play all lines under that topic/section.
-lN - Forces the specified line number to be played.
This two switches only apply for a /play request initiated via a remote definition, not by you:
-mN - limits the number of requests that can be queued by a specific user/channel. If the user/channel already has or exceeds the specified number of requests queued then the play request is ignored.
-qN - Specifies the maximum number of requests that can be queued. If the queue length is already larger than or equal to the specified number then the play request is ignored.
[alias] - If you have specified -a, the alias that will be called instead of [[/msg]] or [[/notice]].
[channel/nick/stop] - The window you want to play to, if required, or "stop" if you want to stop and clear the queue.
[filename] - The filename you want to play.
[delay] - You can specify a delay, in millisecond, between each line sent.
; Play the file 'file,txt' to the channel '#chan'.
/play #chan file.txt
; Play a random line from the file 'file,txt' to the channel '#chan'.
/play -r #chan file.txt
; Stops and clears all files in the queue.
