Incase anyone else is missing the DDE functionality from prior versions of scripts, here it is again.

I think I'm the only person that actually used it but who knows Satisfied

Console_Output() already accepts formatted input so there's no need to write a Console() wrapper function to add support for this.

This:
bool initvalue;


Should mean that initivalue gets initalized with a random value, the first use of initvalue is:

void DDEChan::Initialize()
{
	if (initvalue == 1) { return; }
	initvalue = 1;

If I remember correctly bool will be initalized with a garbage value which is compared to 1, which is why this works but will break if initvalue is garbage filled with 1. Instead you should set initvalue to false before using it like so:

bool initvalue = false;

I never bothered to look at what the DDE channel actually did. Are you able to explain a little about it, please?

DDE stands for Dynamic Data Exchange, it's a way of 2 programs to communicate to each other.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms648774.aspx explains it quite well.

Since mIRC supports DDE as well as the FDS, I use it to send commands from my banning system (which is an mIRC based bot) directly to the FDS without any "middleman" program like renrem. Quite useful still, although it's considered an obsolete technology.

Yeah you should be using sockets instead, which mIRC also supports in a somewhat broken way

Thank you, that's very interesting.

Updated for Xpert because he apparently can't do it himself.
