About This File

I started working on this program in the summer then I stopped cause I faced some problems I couldn't overcome back then. Now that I've practiced more and have become a better scripter/programmer I'm releasing the program to the public to get some opinions. I know it's not a new concept but it's the first program I started besides some small stuff I did just for practice! I won't post the source code yet because it's still under construction, although I'm sure I've posted early stages of the code with bugs in the past in some topic...

What I wanted was a simple, small, serverless program that would work without installation cause I wanted it for where I work, so I ended up with this!


I have attached some images of various versions, also visit the forum thread.


The package includes s!mpL3 LAN Messenger, the License Agreement and the change log.


Current version! [30/09/2015]

      IRC UDF - Updated Version of Chips' IRC UDF - Release: V1.22 - 09/06/2016 - Technical Writer Needed!
      By rcmaehl
      A UDF to connect to IRC using TCP Functions, as well as perform actions once connected.
      WANTED: Technical Writer able to create / maintain a helpfile (.chm) using the Autoit helpfile layout for an negotiated rate.

      Originally created by Chip.
      UDF Headers updated compared to old script.
      Error and Parameter Handling updated compared to old script.
      If you need to bypass the RFC compliance of this UDF, use _IRCRaw.
      The majority of the old functions have been modified. It will break most, if not all, scripts using the old UDF.
      These commands should work on every server following either RFC 1459 (legacy) or RFC 2812 (preferred).
      Potential Uses:
      IRC Chat Clients
      Chatroom Integration for software
      IRC Bots for Channel / Server Administration
      IRC Bots for Games such as Hangman, Mafia, and WereWolf
      Remote Administration without having to setup your own AutoIt server

      Extra Functions:
      _IRCReplyTo (IRCExtras.au3)
      _IRCStripSpecial (IRCExtras.au3)
      Additional Links:
      Chips' Old UDF Topic:

      Message output only displays ANSI characters in CUI. (Can't Fix) Freenode requires registration for part messages thus the part message in example doesn't show up (Can't fix) Messages (e.g. PRIVMSG) are not forwarded?, when it contains umlauts/german mutations and when the message only contains a dot '.' (Unconfirmed) Warnings:
      Do NOT send a lot of messages at once. MOST networks will disconnect you. SOME networks will permanently ban you. A MINORITY will harshly retailiate. Do NOT use the Sleep() function in your scripts. It prevents you from receiving any new data, can disconnect your from the network, and have other undesired consequences. Use the TimerInit() and TimerDiff() functions and possibly a message queue. To Do:
      Possibly add in SSL functionality Create More Functions for IRC commands An entire IRC daemon written in AutoIt Have _IRCChannelJoin check the channel list for errors Have _IRCChannelPart check the channel list for errors Possibly Include Kips TCP UDF for ASync Port Listening in Example Create Additional UDFs for extras such as CTCP, DCC, and Error Lookup Experiment with having functions check for the reply and see if reliable. Have _IRCMultiMode Check if User or Channel and Accept or Deny $_sParams Accordingly Upcoming Changes:

      Hi, when a client sends /logout to the server i want that the server find the id of the client and set his online status to 0
      Using 'default' I have no problems, but when I do this with 'blank517' gives me id 10 and then for the database remains online

      I want to in 1 second, Client will send to server a message. And then, Server recv this message and write to Console. But when i run server and client. In server, i was recv only one message. Please tell me why?
      In server, i code:
      #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Global $r = @CRLF; Global $ip = "" Global $port = 1337 Global $client, $iSocket TCPStartup() $iSocket = TCPListen($ip, $port) While 1 $client = TCPAccept($iSocket) If $client <> -1 Then TCPSend($client, "Client is Connected"); EndIf $msg = TCPRecv($client, 1024) if StringLen($msg) <>0 Then ConsoleWrite("Server recv: " &$msg) EndIf TCPSend($client, "Send this msg to client"); Sleep(1000) WEnd In client, i code:
      #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Global $ip = "" Global $port = 1337 Global $r = @CRLF; TCPStartup() $server = TCPConnect($ip, $port) While 1 TCPSend($server, "Send msg to server") Sleep(1000) WEnd

      Parsing binary data frames from an asynchronous source
      By toasterking
      I was just working on a project that involved decoding a stream of binary data from a serial port in AutoIt.  It took me a few hours to figure out how to process the data efficiently in AutoIt and I did not find any helpful examples on how to do so, so I thought I would share my core example and maybe save someone else some time.  There may be a more efficient way to do this, but this works well for me.
      #cs Author: ToasterKing This is an example of a way to parse streaming binary data that follows a strict format with a header and footer. In this example, each frame is 5 bytes with a 2-byte header of 0xD5AA and a 1-byte footer of 0xAD. The _BinaryParse() function accumulates incoming data in a buffer. Once a footer is found, it searches backward for the header, and if it is in the right position, it extracts the remaining 2 bytes in the middle, then moves on to looking for the next frame. #ce ; The data source might be something asynchronous like serial or TCP, but since this is just an example, I'm just putting the data in a variable. Local $fSomeData $fSomeData = Binary("0xD5AA24B1") ; Binary data constituting almost a complete frame. _BinaryParse($fSomeData) ; Call the function with the received data. It isn't a complete frame, so it is just stored in the buffer until more data is received. $fSomeData = Binary("0xAD62D5AA92E7AD") ; Remainder of the previous frame, one garbage byte (0x62) which should be skipped, and a complete additional frame. _BinaryParse($fSomeData) ; The function should be able to parse both frames now. Func _BinaryParse($fNewData) Local Static $fBinaryReceived = Binary("") ; Buffer for received data ConsoleWrite("Hey, the function is called!" & @CRLF) ; Add new data to the buffer. ; This ridiculous monstrosity is the only way I could find to append binary data to binary data in AutoIt. It must be converted to strings first. ; Both, one, or no substrings will begin with "0x" depending on whether they contained binary data. To be converted back to binary properly, only one instance ; of "0x" must exist at the beginning of the string. $fBinaryReceived = Binary("0x" & StringReplace(String($fBinaryReceived) & String($fNewData),"0x","")) ConsoleWrite("Data in the buffer: " & String($fBinaryReceived) & @CRLF) Local $iLength = BinaryLen($fBinaryReceived) ; Count the bytes in the data If $iLength > 0 Then Local $fBinaryReceivedTemp = $fBinaryReceived ; Create temporary copy to work on Local $fByte1,$fByte2 For $i = 1 To $iLength If BinaryMid($fBinaryReceivedTemp,$i,1) = 0xAD Then ; If the 1-byte footer found ConsoleWrite("Footer found at end of " & $i & " of " & $iLength & " bytes!" & @CRLF) If BinaryMid($fBinaryReceivedTemp,$i - 4,1) = 0xD5 And BinaryMid($fBinaryReceivedTemp,$i - 3,1) = 0xAA Then ; and the 2-byte header is found 4 bytes before that ConsoleWrite("Header found before the footer!" & @CRLF) $fByte1 = BinaryMid($fBinaryReceivedTemp,$i - 2,1) ; Get 1st byte in the body (between header and footer) $fByte2 = BinaryMid($fBinaryReceivedTemp,$i - 1,1) ; Get 2nd byte in the body (between header and footer) ConsoleWrite("Here is the critical data: " & String($fByte1) & " " & String($fByte2) & @CRLF) ; Just display the 2 bytes for demonstration purposes. Normally, you'd do something more useful with it here. EndIf $fBinaryReceived = BinaryMid($fBinaryReceivedTemp,$i + 1) ; Truncate the original data to remove all of the bytes just processed, then continue processing $fBinaryReceivedTemp EndIf Next EndIf EndFunc

      Parental Filter
      By topten
      Hi I have an idea of creating a parental filter (freeware) , which will be protecting children from navigating to adult websites.  I want to ask, what is your opinion, how to do it best way?
      How to catch the traffic from the very beginning?
      For example if a user is starting IE or Firefox, or if he has some alternate BLABLA-browser - how can I catch the url before actual navigation to website, so that my script could first check if the website is ok, and then if it decides that the website is not ok, just block connection to this IP.
      Looking forward to your opinions, Great thanx in advance!
