Eggdrop Few Tricks

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Some little tricks that you may or may not know about:

1. You can "lock" a user's info line by putting a '@' as the first letter. They won't be able to change it any more.

2. '.status all' will dump out virtually everything you have configured on your bot.

3. You can automagically make a ban sticky by adding a '*' as the first character in the ban reason.

4. You can modify Eggdrop's output in partyline and messages by editing core.english.lang in the language directory.

5. You can unlink all bots and clear out the botnet info from memory by using '.unlink *'. It erases all channel assocs and everything.

6. Tcl has a command 'info body <proc>' that will list the contents of a proc and 'info args <proc>' shows what you have defined as the parameters for the proc.

7. If you don't want your logfiles to be deleted after two days and don't want the bot to create a new logfile each new day, then set 'keep-all-logs' to 0 and 'switch-logfiles-at' to 2500 in your eggdrop config file to make it keeping one logfile all the time. REMEMBER: this is not recommended on high traffic channels.

8. You can use variables in your config file, since it's really just a normal Tcl file. For example, you can set 'userfile' and 'chanfile' to "yourbot.user" and "yourbot.chan" using the following method:

set myvar "yourbot"
set userfile "$myvar.user"
set chanfile "$myvar.chan"

9. You can export parts of your config file to separate files. For example, if you have several config files which differ from themselves only by the nickname and the used servers, you can export them to an own file and link it with the 'source' Tcl command, similar to a script. The advantage of this is that you have to edit/upload only the small file instead of the big one. This technique is also useful if you want to maintain the same channel settings, etc across your botnet.

10. You can rename a builtin command by binding over it.

To rename '.status' to '.report', you'd do:

unbind dcc - status *dcc:status
bind dcc m report *dcc:status

The first line removes the builtin binding on '.status' and the second line binds '.report' to the builtin status function.
