$mknickfn identifier - mIRC
< mirc‎ | identifiers

$mknickfn creates a valid filename from a nickname by removing characters which are not valid in a filename from text.




  • nickname - The nickname to be made a valid filename


//var %i 33 | var %f | while (%i isnum 33-126) { var %f %f $+ $chr(%i) | inc %i } | echo -a orig: %f | echo -a mknk: $mknickfn(%f)

Note: While this ensures a string is a valid filename, it does not ensure 2 different strings wouldn't get assigned the same filename, with both having different characters removed.
