Textfile Substitutions


These %-variables can be inserted into help files, the banner, the MOTD, and other text files.There are four variables that can be used to format text:

%b
display bold
%v
display inverse
%_
display underline
%f
display flashing via telnet; bold underline via irc

These variables will be interpreted by Eggdrop and replaced by their respective values:

%B
bot's nickname (i.e. "LamestBot")
%V
current Eggdrop version (i.e. "eggdrop v1.6.19")
%E
long form of %V (i.e. "Eggdrop v1.6.19 (C) 1997 Robey Pointer (C) 2008 Eggheads Development Team")
%C
channels the bot is on (i.e. "#lamest, #botnetcentral")
%A
whatever is set in the config file by 'set admin'
%n
whatever is set in the config file by 'set network'
%T
the current time (i.e. "15:00")
%N
the current user's nickname (i.e. "Robey")
%U
the current operating system the bot is on
%%
a percent sign ("%")

You can also encode messages which can only be read by people with certain flags:

%{+m}some text%{-}
Only masters would see this.
%{+A}some text%{-}
Only people with the user flag +A see this.
%{+b}some text%{-}
This is only displayed to users doing a remote '.motd' from another bot.
%{+|m}some text%{-}
Only channel masters would see this.

Other variables:

%{cols=N}
start splitting output into N columns
%{cols=N/W}
same as above, but use a screen width of W
%{end}
end columnated or restricted (%{+m}) block
%{center}
