Copy channel Ban / Invite / Exceptions list?

Post by mvp1 »

Hi guys,

I have long lists of bans, invites, exceptions added on a channel. What could be the easiest and quickest way (script, apps like mIRC, irccloud etc) for me to copy and save all the lists to keep as a back up? in case some op wipes these lists.

Many thanks

The easiest way would be to have mirc script write them to a text file

One idea:

Code: Select all

/mode #channelName b
Do this in your irc client.
This returns the list of bans on that channel.

Copy it. Save it. Done.


If this IS what you want, and then you want to automate the process to happen periodically, then we are off to the races on figuring a good way to do so. ;)

Side note:
If you need to keep track of dynamic bans, give thought to Spike^^'s idea, too. They would appear in the bot's .user file, but not in the irc server's ban list using the command that I just posted. In other words, you might need both.

Thanks Simo, CrazyCat and Spike. The lists are not in eggdrop but just on channel, and what willyw said worked for me. The /mode command displayed, and I took a back up by just copy pasting.

Thanks alot willyw!
