/while Command - mIRC
< mirc‎ | commands

The /while command is a construct in the mIRC scripting language that can perform repetitive operations. The block of statement inside the while loop will get executed as long as the condition is true. You can manually break out of a loop by using the Cltr+Break key combinations.

Synopsis[edit]

while (condition) {
  /statements
  /statements
  /statements
}

Switches[edit]

None

Parameters[edit]

None

Example[edit]

/* Example 1
*/
Alias CountToTen {
  ;Create a counter variable, set it to one
  var %Counter = 1
 
  ;Loop while the counter variable is less than or equal to ten.
  while (%Counter <= 10) {
 
    ;Print out the value of the counter variable
    echo -a Count Number: %Counter
 
    ;Increase the counter variable by 1
    inc %Counter
  }
}

The above example will output:

Count Number: 1
Count Number: 2
Count Number: 3
Count Number: 4
Count Number: 5
Count Number: 6
Count Number: 7
Count Number: 8
Count Number: 9
Count Number: 10

Example 2:

/* Example 2
*/
 
Alias ListVars {
  ;Check if there are any variables set
  if (!$var(*,0)) {
    echo -a There Are No Variables.
    halt
  } 
 
  ;Set a counter variable
  var %a 1
 
  ;Loop while the counter variable is less than or equal to the total number of variables
  while (%a <= $var(*,0)) { 
 
    ;Print out the variable and its value
    echo -a $v1 $+ ) $var(*,$v1) = $var(*,$v1).value 
 
    ;Increase the variable by one
    inc %a
  }
}

The above example will output something like this:

1) %Foo = FooBar
2) %Bar = BarFoo
