/autoclobber GET|RESUME|RENAME GET|RESUME|RENAME
The /AUTOGET, /AUTOREGET, and /AUTOREJECT commands take patterns that are matched against filenames or nick!user@hosts that offer you files. You can remove an autoget pattern by prefixing it with a hyphen. You can only remove patterns exactly that you added; there is no wildcard matching your patterns.
The /AUTOGET command automatically does a dcc get whenever someone offers you a file that does not already exist; when either that someone (nick!user@host) or that file is matched by any of the patterns in your autoget list. The /AUTOGET file will not autoget files if they already exist.
The /AUTOREGET command automatically does a dcc resume whenever someone offers you a file that you already have, but is smaller than the file that the other person is offering you, and a dcc close whenever the file you have is as big (or bigger) than what is offered.
The /AUTOREJECT command automatically does a dcc close whenever someone offers you a file.
The /AUTOCLOBBER command takes two arguments, the action to take when someone offers you a file you already have. The first argument is the action to take when you have a file smaller than what is offered, and the second argument is the action to take when you have a file that is the same size or larger than what is offered. The “GET” handler does a dcc get and replaces your file with the offered one; the “RESUME” handler does a dcc resume for the file, and “RENAME” renames the local file by appending a string to its filename, and then does a dcc get. The default behavior is “RESUME CLOSE”
