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:

display bold
display inverse
display underline
display flashing via telnet; bold underline via irc

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

bot's nickname (i.e. "LamestBot")
current Eggdrop version (i.e. "eggdrop v1.8.0")
long form of %V (i.e. "Eggdrop v1.8.0 (C) 1997 Robey Pointer (C) 2010 Eggheads Development Team")
channels the bot is on (i.e. "#lamest, #botnetcentral")
whatever is set in the config file by 'set admin'
whatever is set in the config file by 'set network'
the current time (i.e. "15:00")
the current user's nickname (i.e. "Robey")
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:

start splitting output into N columns
same as above, but use a screen width of W
end columnated or restricted (%{+m}) block
center the following text (70 columns)
