This script will automatically complete a partially matching nickname when you type it in a channel. The usual custom on irc is to type some person's nickname, followed by a colon, followed by a space, followed by your message. If you use this style, then this script will allow you to specify the non-ambiguous part of a person's nickname and automatically change it for you before sending it off to irc.
If you /set nickcomp ON (the default), then the nickname completion action is automatically done each time you type to the channel. If OFF, then no auto-completion will be done.
If you /set nickcomp_char : (the default) then the nickname of the person you are speaking to should be the part before the colon. If you use another character, change this setting.
If you /set nickcomp_len 3 (the default), then there must be this many character before the colon to qualify for automatic completion. If there are fewer characters, it is not changed.
If you /set nickcomp_multi off (the default) and if the nickname you type before the colon is ambiguous (expands to multiple nicknames) then the first nick that matches will be used; if you set it to ON, then it will auto- complete to ALL the nicknames, separated by commas.
This script first appeared in epic5-0.3.1.
