Alias Names in Triggers
Hey everyone, quick question here, sorry if this has been asked before

I'm trying to have an event trigger the usage of an alias - however, the name of the alias being triggered is not explicit - in one possible example it would be concatted from characters from the trigger



From MUD: "You need to send a letter north"

My Trigger: "You need to send a (%w) (%w)"

Trigger Code: %concat(%1,%2)

Output: letternorth

I have an alias named "letternorth", but that alias does not execute the commands in it. It just sends "letternorth" to the MUD.

Any ideas? I have a number of triggers and aliases that are going to overlap and I'd like to avoid creating a new trigger for each specific situation

Thank you!

Best method is to acknowledge that 'letter north' should be parameters passed to a single alias.
Trigger Code: doSomething %1 %2
Alias doSomething code: #IF (%1="letter") {#SEND {mail letter %2}}

Alternately you can use the #EXECUTE command.
The only good questions are the ones we have never answered before.
