paste [2007/02/20 02:39] (current)

 +======Synopsis:​======
 +[[load]] paste \\
 +[[set]] paste ON|OFF|TOGGLE \\
 +[[set]] paste_strip ON|OFF|TOGGLE \\
 +[[set]] paste_delay //number// \\
 +[[bind]] ^P { [[set]] paste toggle }
 +
 +======Description:​======
 +When you **/SET PASTE ON**, everything you type at the input prompt is
 +taken to be literal text that you're pasting and it is sent to your
 +current target without any interpretation by the client. ​ This means you
 +can paste things like C code with comments, or ircII code without
 +the client interpreting your paste as commands. ​ When you **/SET PASTE OFF**,
 +everything goes back to normal. ​ The default is OFF.
 +
 +Because it is theoretically possible for you to get stuck into
 +paste mode, where you would be unable to **/SET PASTE OFF**, there are
 +two ways out of "paste mode"​. ​ The ^P (control-P) key binding will
 +toggle the paste mode, turning it off if it is on (and turning it
 +on if it is off...). ​ The "paste mode" feature also turns itself
 +off after a short delay, which you can control with **/SET PASTE_DELAY**.
 +The default paste delay is 30 seconds.
 +
 +Anguzhawk, who asked me for this script originally, also wanted to
 +able to strip off leading whitespace on pre-formatted text that
 +he was pasting. ​ If you **/SET PASTE_STRIP ON**, then the client will remove
 +all leading whitespace from any text you paste. ​ If you
 +**/SET PASTE_STRIP OF**F, everything goes back to normal. ​ The default
 +is OFF.
 +
 +======History:​======
 +The paste script first appeared in EPIC4-1.1.13.
