The /writeini command is used to write and update a standard initialization file.
The Standard INI file has the following format:
[Section] Item=value Item2=value ;some comment [Section2] Item=value Item2=value
For mIRC <= 6.35: Writing to a file bigger than 64KB requires the -n switch, otherwise an error will be generated, halting the script. (This is a limitation of the standard Win32 API GetPrivateProfileString() and WritePrivateProfileString())
For mIRC >= 7.00: mIRC now uses its own custom INI routine, the -n switch is obsolete.
/writeini [-n] <inifile> <section> <item> <value>
- -n - Forces mIRC to write to an INI file, even if it's bigger then 64k (see note above)
- <inifile> - The filename to write to
- <section> - Section name
- <item> - Item name
- <value> - The data to store for the item
;Write a few items to a file /writeini abb.ini abbreviations lol Laughing Out Loud /writeini abb.ini abbreviations rofl Rolling On the Floor, Laughing /* abb.ini format: [abbreviations] lol=Laughing Out Loud rofl=Rolling On the Floor, Laughing */ ;Retrieve 'lol' //echo -a $readini(abb.ini, n, abbreviations, lol) ;Prints out: Laughing Out Loud
