$& Identifier - mIRC
< mirc‎ | identifiers

$& is a construct which allows you to break up long, single script lines in order to make editing and reading them much easier.

Note: $& can touch the end of your line and still be valid, see the example






An alias that breaks up a long echo into multiple lines

alias testit {
  echo -a This is a really long$&
    line that is broken up because $&
    mIRC supports it! The cool thing is $&
    that mIRC will also format these $&
    indentations within the script editor!

Create an alias that has a code block similar to a programming language

alias testit {
  if ($me isin $+(Hello, $me,! How are you?)) $&
    echo -a This code block resembles some popular programming languages.

Note: Non-spaces are not permitted following it on the same line, and this reports there is no such identifier (unless you create a custom identifier named '&')

//echo -a foo $& bar
