Inspired by SEoD's niftykeen mirc script I sprang into action and wrote a script that brings the same e2 clickable link joy to the RISC OS IRC client, LIRC.
Disclaimer: For this script to work, you'll need a fairly recent version of LIRC. However, when LIRC runs it should tell if a newer version exists, so if you just get the latest, you'll be laughing. I will also accept no responsibility if things break due to my poor coding technique.
To install, create a new BASIC file named e2 in your Scripts directory, use the command
/run e2 to activate the script and click, click, click-away!
If you want the script to run permanently, then simply add the line
DO "/run e2" to your !OnConnect script, or, alternatively, copy the entire DEFEVENT block (lines 70-310) in there.
10 TITLE e2
20 AUTHOR "c-dub"
30 REM makes [e2 links] clickable
80 REM search backwards for a [
90 LET open%=0
100 FOR i%=VALidx$ TO 0 STEP -1
120 IF temp$="[" THEN
160 NEXT i%
170 REM search forwards for a ]
200 IF close%>2 AND open%+close%>VALidx$ THEN
210 REM found a string!
230 REM convert all the spaces to +'s
240 WHILE INSTR(temp$," ")<>0
250 MID$(temp$,INSTR(temp$," "),1)="+"
270 temp$ = "/url http://www.everything2.com/?node="+temp$
280 DO "<-=click=->"
290 DO temp$
All copied? Then you're all set! Now, whenever you see something along the lines of [What Would Jackie Chan Do?] in a LIRC window you can simply double-click on it and it'll launch in a fresh new browser window.
