$isalias Identifier - mIRC
< mirc‎ | identifiers

$isalias returns informations about aliases.




  • name - The name of the alias
  • N - returns the Nth line of a multiline alias, to be used with the .alias property


  • .fname - returns the filename in which the alias exists
  • .ftype - returns the type of alias, if it's stored in a "remote" file or in an "alias" file
  • .alias - returns the alias definition, you can access a multiline alias with the N parameter.

Note: If you have an alias named "test" inside a remote file A and another alias with the same name in another remote file B, even in B is loaded after A, if you execute the alias from an alias/event/etc inside file B, it will execute your alias in file B, you may be expecting this but the author here wasn't until recently. I was thinking it would always execute the first found alias in the order of loaded file unless the alias in B is local here. $isalias behaves the same way, if you call $isalias from a remote file, it will always use the alias defined inside that remote file if it exists, this suggests that alias are always local to a remote script, the -l switch when defining alias with the alias keyword wouldn't be that useful?
