- 2 - Writing An Alias
Now there are two main parts to an alias, the first part, the "alias" itself, and the second which is the command that the alias is to perform. The idea is to save the user time by not having to type a long command in again and again if it is going to be used regularly e.g. the identify command mentioned in "Nick Registration". Here's how you would alias that command to something much shorter.
- First place go to a new line in the aliases box
- Type /id /msg nickserv identify password making sure to replace the password with the password you used to register your nick.
- Now whenever you want to identify yourself, instead of having to type
/msg nickserv identify password you can just type /id
You could do a similar thing for the ghost command... on a new line put
/ghost /msg nickserv ghost registerednick passwordYou can also bind the function keys on your keyborad in this way- instead of putting /id or /ghost you could put /F4. This would mean that whenever you pressed F4 when mIRC was the active window, the command you bound to it would run.
