/set [-eklnsuNzgpB] <%var> [value]

Sets the value of %var to the specified value.

See also /var, /unset.

Switches

-e - Unset the variable when AdiIRC exits.
-k - Keeps the unset time (-u) from a previous command.
-l - Creates a local variable instead of global.
-n - Treat the value as plain text, even if arithmetic operators are used.
-s - Display variable assignment value.
-uN - Unsets the variable after N amount of seconds, if N = 0 unset the variable after the script is finished.
-z - Decreases the value of the variable by 1/ever second until zero is reached. At zero the variable will be unset.
-i - Initializes a variable only if it does not already exist as a local or global variable.
-g - Sets a global variable even if a local variable exists.
-p - Permits value to be 2 literal double quotes and permits value to end with a single $chr(32) space. Also enables -n switch behavior.
-B - Performs a $calcint calculation instead of regular $calc when arithmetic operators are used. (AdiIRC only)

Parameters

<%var> - The variable to set.
[value] - Value to set the variable to. (can be a single arithmetic expression)

Example

}
