Turning off all aliases temporarily via command?
 
I have a trigger that throws on a command input to grab all of my incoming text and send it away to a variable. This is nifty, except aliases get in the way. I was wondering if there was a way to turn off all parsing via command and then turn it all back on again via command. I can just click the parse toggle. But I'm forgetful, so, if there's any way to build it in to the trigger automatically, that's definitely ideal.

Edit:
Side note, turning off all parsing (naturally, should have expected it) causes the input trigger not to work either. Man, aliases are going to be rough with this thing.

Using the Send File command seems to skip this issue. Is there any way to make text sent through the command line to act like send file text temporarily?

#SENDRAW should be able to send an aliasName without invoking the alias

Thanks. Though the issue is with the command line parsing the alias so it already comes to the input trigger as the aliased text. The send file command works well enough I suppose though. :-)

That's odd. I wouldn't have expected turning off parsing to disable command input triggers, only turning off triggers should IMO. Is that a bug?

I might have been confusing. I wanted to turn off parsing so that the command input trigger wouldn't take in an alias instead of the text I intended to send (which I was going to copy and paste in huge chunks). Send file works though and is fairly easy.

I don't think there was a way I could toggle parsing via a command though, or, at least, I didn't find one.
