$mkfn ensures a text string can be a valid filename by replacing characters not allowed in a filename with underscores.




  • text - Text to be made a valid filename by replacing certain characters with underscores




//var %i 33 | var %f | while (%i isnum 33-126) { var %f %f $+ $chr(%i) | inc %i } | echo -a orig: %f | echo -a mkfn: $mkfn(%f)

Note: While this ensures a string is a valid filename, it does not ensure 2 different strings wouldn't get assigned the same filename, with both having different characters replaced with the same underscore.


Added: mIRC v5.7
