Usage: IGNORE [<nick>] [-|+|^][<message type>]
IGNORE [<user@host>] [-][<message type>]
IGNORE [<nick>!#channel] [-][<message type>]
IGNORE [<user@host>!#channel] [-][<message type>]
The standard form of IGNORE allows you to specify which type of
messages you wish to ignore from a user. The message type
parameter can be one of the following:
MSGS All MSGs received
NOTICES All NOTICEs received
PUBLIC All normal channel conversation
INVITES All INVITEs received
WALLOPS All WALLOPS received
NOTES All NOTEs received
CTCP All CTCPs received
PART All channel PARTs
JOIN All channel JOINs
CRAP Anything else
ALL All of the above message types
NONE No message types
You can ignore by nickname or by specifying a userid@hostname
format. The third form allows you to ignore by nickname only
on matching channels (useful to ignore publics from certain
users only on one channel for example). The fourth form allows
you to ignore by user@host only on matching channels.
Wildcards may be used in all formats. You can specify multiple
types of messages to ignore on the command line.
Preceeding a type with a - indicates removal of ignoring of
that type of message. For example:
IGNORE BigCheese MSGS INVITES
ignores MSGs and INVITES from BigCheese.
IGNORE *@*.cmu.edu ALL -NOTES
ignores all types of messages except NOTES from anyone from CMU.
You may also specify a + before any message type to cause messages
of that type from that user to be displayed with the nickname
highlighted. (See SET HIGHLIGHT_CHAR) For example:
IGNORE *Cheese* +MSGS
will cause all MSGs from anyone with Cheese in their nickname
to appear with their nickname highlighted.
IGNORE * +PUBLIC +NOTES
will highlight all PUBLIC messages and NOTES received. The + has no
effect with the user@host name format.
If you specify a ^ before a message type, then messages from the
matching nicknames will be displayed no matter what. This allows
you to exclude certain nicknames from larger matching lists. For
IGNORE * MSG
IGNORE BigCheese ^MSG
This will ignore private messages from everyone except BigCheese.
All forms of IGNORE use the - to remove ignore attributes,
and the type NONE will remove the user from the list
All forms of IGNORE will match against the nickname with the
most true matching characters. What this means is if you have:
IGNORE BigCheese MSGS
IGNORE * +ALL
Then MSG's from BigCheese will be ignored, and all other types
of messages from BigCheese will be unaffected. All messages
of all types from any other user will be highlighted.
All the ignore entries are saved to ScrollZ.save file.
