$regsub performs a regular expression match and then substitute/replace, returns the number of match found and store the result in a %var or &binvar, more information about regex in mIRC here




  • name - The optional name of the regex, to be used later to retrieve captured group with $regml or $regmlex
  • input - The input text
  • regex - The regular expression for PCRE
  • subtext - the text to use to replace the match, you cannot use $regml or $regmlex inside the subtext parameter nor you can use \1 etc, for that you need to use $regsubex
