# $EPIC: isaway.txt,v 1.2 2006/08/01 03:40:36 sthalik Exp $

Synopsis:

$isaway()
$isaway(<server refnum>)

Technical:

  • If the <server refnum> argument is omitted, the “from (current) server” is the default.
  • If the <server refnum> argument is not a number, it will be changed to the server refnum 0.
  • If the <server refnum> argument is not a valid server refnum, the return value is 0.
  • This function returns 1 if you are AWAY on that server, and 0 if you are not.

Practical:

You may want to change the behavior of an alias depending on whether or not you are AWAY.

Returns:

1  if you are AWAY on the specified server
0  if you are not.

Examples:

$isaway()         might return 0 or 1
$isaway(3)        might return 0 or 1
