$fline returns the number of the Nth line matching the expression in a window

Note: $fline strips lines from control code before matching




  • win - a channel/query/status or custom window
  • expr - the expression to search, wildcard by default
  • N - The Nth matching line, returns the total number of matching lines if N = 0
  • T - If T = 1, it references the listbox (nicklist in channel window), T = 2 means the expression is a regular expression, T = 3 means both 1 & 2
  • S - The search will start from the starting line number S, helping speeding up the search, you must provide the N and T parameter.


  • .text return the line matched rather than the line number


//echo -a $fline($chan(1),*mirc*)
