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).
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
Chips' Old UDF Topic:
While these downloads are more stable than the ones above, I do not have time to thoroughly test all functions and variable entries. If something doesn't work as expected or gives you an error please check @error and @extended variables then create a reply to this 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 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. Upcoming Changes:

Maybe some of you know the program / site "discord.gg", it's a Chat for gamers.
There is a function called "WebHook" which is more or less a little pseudo bot.
You get a link and over this you can let the bot send whatever you want.
For example here is a little bot/webhook that posts the newest NASA articles, including Pictures.
I "created" this with the site "ifttt.com" which manages webhooks for you.
Now my question:
When there is an event detected by my bot,
can i send a message from my Bot directly to my Discord Webhook with the link?
A message like "loot xyz is found"?
If this is not possible, i would try to use a longer way:
When my Bot detects an event,
I would try to trigger "ifttt.com" with something like an email or something else (i still have to figure out what is the best, fastest and securest way) and trigger my Discord Webhook this way, but this would take way longer since it has to go over "ifttt.com"...
im some what new to autoit and need help figuring out best way to make a simple clicker for few idle games i play(taptitdue, sakura clicker, elndless frontier etc.) ive played around with autoit recorder to make simple copy mouse clicks. but now i want to make a script that allows me to select multiple functions before starting the script for game ex: click section A or click section A + B to run At set intervals if that makes sense . i dont need scripts made by other just info on what things i should use to make it my self.
need to be able to select between games and be able to select multiple functions to run inconjuntion or independent for each game. thank you in advance
My script currently reads a text file line by line. I want it to look for this the chat message below and skip the session messages.
There are some garbage lines that I want it to skip over. So if a line doesnt match that format then skip it. I tried experimenting with StringRegExp but I think I'm using it wrong. Heres my code
If StringRegExp($read, '\W\d\d\w\d\d\D.\W') = Not @error Then I was hoping that this would be able to see the open bracket, 2 digits, a colon, 2 digits, close bracket, a space and a <. But it doesn't seem to be working.
Eventually I want to be able to extract the username and chat message into separate strings but I haven't got that far yet.
