< mirc‎ | commands

The /debug command outputs raw server messages to a file or a custom window Incoming messages are prefixed with <- and outgoing messages are prefixed with ->


/debug [-cinptrNoN] [color_index] [on | off | @window | filename] [identifier]


  • -c - Turns off debugging (close associated window as well)
  • -i - Call a specific $identifier and use the returned value as the debug lines
  • -n - Minimize the custom @window
  • -p - Wrap the debug lines if it is too long for the @window
  • -t - Adds timestamp to the debug lines
  • -rN - Uses the N color index as the line color for received debug lines.
  • -oN - Uses the N color index as the line color for outbound debug lines.


  • [color] - Optional text color for the debug window (Partly overridden by -rN and/or -oN) Can be color index 0-99
  • [on|off] - Turns debug on or off
  • [@window|filename] - outputs to a custom @window or a file
  • [identifier] - Calls an identifier before logging the debugged line (the returned value if used for the logging)

: This alias opens a debug window shared by all networks. Outbound lines in red, inbound lines in green. Note the identifier is listed on command line instead of calling an alias. The yellow 8 is overridden by defining in/out colors with -rNoN. Alias uses $time to display seconds without forcing all windows to show seconds in their $timestamp too
