How to dynamically set variable names in mIRC script

Posted by

mIRCWikipedia: mIRC is an Internet Relay Chat (IRC) client for Windows, created in 1995. It is a fully functional chat utility, and its integrated scripting language makes it extensible and versatile.[3] 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:

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

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

set %i 1

while (%1 <= 10) {
    set %var [ $+ [ %i ] ] %stuff_variable
}
