comment:2 Changed 13 years ago by goofix

is executed after 5 seconds, once. the first number is for number of repetitions; the second one is for the time to wait to execute, in seconds.. better sentence for the descrition

ex. from x-chat (aqua)
Usage: /TIMER [-refnum <num>] [-repeat <num>] <seconds> <command>
/TIMER [-quiet] -delete <num>

  • priority changed from Normal to Low
  • Severity changed from Blocker to Major

what do you need this for? #1380 and #1217 are related.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

See [4242] instead: auto commands that are prefixed with \ instead of / are executed after successful identification: \cs invite #inviteOnlyRoom. (auto commands prefixed with / and raw auto commands are run as soon as possible like they always were)

I think a /timer command would still be useful for other things.

a timer command would be very helpful.
