How to dynamically set variable names in mIRC script

mIRC does not have arrays. The nearest and best alternative to arrays in mIRC, is dynamicly named variables. For example, %var1, %var2, %var3, %var4 etc.

To set a dynamically named variable, you simply join two variables together, using square brackets, as follows:

  1. set %var [ $+ [ %i ] ] MY VALUE

This code shows you how to emulate an array, using this method:

  1. set %i 1
  2.  
  3. while (%1 <= 10) {
  4. set %var [ $+ [ %i ] ] %stuff_variable
  5. }

    Square brackets are redundant there. Use “set %var $+ %i”
