I recently posted my list of irssi aliases that come handy on the fedora IRC channels. Today, I was experimenting and found something new. Suppose you head into #fedora, and ask for help. Someone asks you to fpaste something, lets say :
$ lsusb | fpaste
Now, instead of changing to another terminal tab, or another screen window to do this, all you need to do is this :
/exec -m #fedora lsusb | fpaste
Yes, that’s it! And in #fedora, the result is an awesome:
18:05 < FranciscoD> Uploading (0.7K)... 18:06 < FranciscoD> http://fpaste.org/WUxU/
Saves time and is more convenient. Cheers!
EDIT: Some more digging, and we have an improved command:
/exec -m #fedora echo -n "NICK: "; lsusb | fpaste 2>&1 | grep "fpaste"
This sends the link to the respective NICK, and only one line, the link, since it’s been grepped.
Aliases for irssi :
/alias fedoraFpasteResult /exec -m #fedora echo -n "$0: "\; $1- | fpaste 2>&1 | grep "fpaste" /alias fedoraFpasteResultGeneral /exec -m $0 echo -n "$1: "\; $2- | fpaste 2>&1 | grep "fpaste"
