This event is added as a replacement for OnSongChanged
on <level>:SONG:<commands>

Supported prefixes so far are ^ to enable halt events (hide default text output from the event), ! to ignore events made by you, @ to only trigger if you have channel op, $ to indicate the wildcard text is a regular expression.

User access will come later.

identifiers added so far


All operaters are added.

Example scripts

Simple kickcounter script:

alias kick { 
    if (!%kickcount) %kickcount = 0

    inc %kickcount

    if (!$3) { 
        kick # $$2 Kick number %kickcount

Kickban example

alias kb {
  if (!$1) {
    echo /kb - Nick missing

  var %msg = $iif(#, $2-, $3-)
  var %chan = $iif(#, #, $2)

  ; Set this for default ban reason, or remove for no default reason
  ; Can be shortened to %msg = $iif(%msg, %msg, GTFO)
  if (!%msg) %msg = GTFO

  if ($me isop %chan) {
   MODE %chan +b $wildsite
   KICK %chan $1 %msg
  else echo You are not oper on %chan

Simple calculator script:

alias calc {
  if (!$1) {
    echo /calc - Parameters missing

  ; typing /calc -p <expression> sends output to channel
  if ($1 == -p) {
    msg # Calculating : $2-
    msg # Result is : $calc($2-)
  } else {
    echo Calculating : $1-
    echo Result is : $calc($1-)

Colored version

alias calc {
  if (!$1) {
    echo /calc - Parameters missing

  # typing /calc -p <expression> sends output to channel
  if ($1 == -p) {
    msg # $chr(3)4Calculating : $2-
    msg # $chr(3)4Result is : $calc($2-)
  } else {
    echo $chr(3)4Calculating : 4$1-
    echo $chr(3)4Result is : $calc($1-)

CTCP flood detection example

CTCP *:*:*:{
  if (!%count) set -u10 %count 1
  else inc -u10 %count 1

  if (%count > 4) ignore -tu30 $wildsite

Mass mode example

alias mass {
  if (!$2) {
    echo /mass - Parameters missing [+/-<mode> <nick> <nick> <nick>]

  %len = 2

  ; equal to while (%len <= $count(%1-, $chr(32)))
  while (%len <= $0) {
    if ($(%len) ison #) mode # $1 $($ $+ %len)
    inc %len

Shows info about servers, channels and users

on *:JOIN:#: {
  var %s = $scon(0), %c = 0, %u = 0, %t = 0, %c2 = 0;

  while (%t < %s) {
    inc %t
    scon $scon(%t);
    inc %c $chan(0)

    %c2 = 0
    while (%c2 < $chan(0)) {
      inc %c2
      inc %u $user($chan(%c2), 0)

  /echo You are on ( $+ %s $+ ) servers, ( $+ %c $+ ) channels with ( $+ %u $+ ) users

It is possible to use scripts as functions.
These functions are fully nested like the client functions.

Lets say you make a /mycalc like this.

alias mycalc {
  return $calc($$1 + $$2);

Then you can call this function with eiter /mycalc <number> <number> the normal way or $mycalc(<number, <number>)
Typing /testcalc will show the result.

alias testcalc {
  echo -a $1 + $2 is $mycalc($1, $2);
  echo -a 5 + 4 is $mycalc(5, 4);

Simple convert temperature C to F or F to C
/temp C 20 will print 68 F

alias temp {
  if ($1 == C) echo $calc(($2 * 9/5) + 32) F
  else if ($1 == F) echo $round($calc(($2 - 32) * 5/9), 1) C
  else echo Temp missing

Announce song changes in a channel or to a user

On *:SONG:{ 
  nmsg <network> <channel/Nick> $1-

Announce to several channels with:

On *:SONG:{ 
  nmsg <network> <channel1/Nick>,<channel2/Nick> $1-
  nmsg <network2> <channel3/Nick> $1- 

Automatically find the summary of a imdb url

On *:TEXT:*:#k: {
  var %reg = $regex($1-, http://www\.imdb\.com(/title/[a-z0-9]+/))
  if (!%reg) { return }
  sockclose imdb
  unset %data
  %imdb = $regml(1) $+ plotsummary
  %imdbchan = #
  sockopen imdb 80

on *:sockopen:imdb: {
  sockwrite -n imdb GET %imdb HTTP/1.1
  sockwrite -n imdb Host:

on *:sockread:imdb:{

on *:sockclose:imdb: {
  if ($regex(%data, <p class="plotpar">([\s\S]*?)<i>)) {
    msg %imdbchan $regml(1)

  unset %data
