[REBOL] Re: Advanced port stuff

From: ptretter:primary at: 8-Jan-2001 8:52

Actually what I am currently doing is assigning any dcc ports to a word that matches the users nick and then inserting that port scheme into waitports. This is done after the script is initially executed as dcc ports are opened and closed. My waitports block contains all ports to be opened. First port in the block is actually the irc port itself for connecting the irc bot to the server. which I can find by doing the following: find waitports 'irc-open-port But if I want to find one of the dynamic dcc ports its a bit more complicated. I would have to know the nick of the user that opened the port since this name is used as the word to assign that port scheme to. For exampe if user "Somenick" requests a dcc session with the bot then the bot will create a port and insert "Somenick" within the waitports block. Now if I try to find this "Somenick" dcc port here is the strange part: find waitports 'somenick I will get an error that somenick as no value. But if I do: find waitports somenick I will get the object spec that is the value of "somenick". Probing waitports never reveals this "somenick" set-word datatype anywhere. Find is the only way I have come to reveal it and you must know the set-word datatype that your looking for. Actually, I found solutions to make the whole thing work with opening and properly closing the ports, etc.. It works very nicely. I just wish probe would reveal everything within the block. As you may assume troubleshooting was a real pain. Paul Tretter P.S. the reason I do this assignment to the users nick is because I wont to ensure no unnecessary ports are opened and that dcc flooding is minimized. Since IRC only allows unique nicks this ensures that each user has one dcc session open at a time. They can open another under a different nick but if they open another under their same nick it closes the previous one.
