/playctrl [-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.
If no parameters is defined, opens the play control dialog.
Empty lines are treated as a delay.
See also $play, $filename, $pnick, on PLAYEND.
Same as /play.
|-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.|
|-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.|
The last two switches only applies for a /playctrl request initiated via a remote definition, not by you.
|[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'. /playctrl #chan file.txt ; Play a random line from the file 'file,txt' to the channel '#chan'. /playctrl -r #chan file.txt ; Stops and clears all files in the queue. /playctrl stop
