This is a script for the Internet Relay Chat Client mIRC.

Now first to answer the question “what the hell does it do then?”

When you type “/apps” without “” in the mIRC console it calls a Dynamic link libary file to ask explorer.exe for a list of all the filenames for programs that is runing in your taskbar.

It then crosschecks the filenames with a ini file that changes the names. Let’s for example say that it makes the filename that originally is “mirc.exe” to “mIRC” and so on.

Why do I need it?

  • You don’t! That’s the point. 60% of all mIRC scripts today is pointless :)
  • But it’s still fun!

Why did you make it?

Because this type of script is featured in another IRC client called Linkinus. Some Apple fanboys ment that mIRC did not have the power to offer the same features. This annoyed me so I made this script to prove them wrong.


  • Gramically correct (Even though I’m not) - It puts comas between the apps and a period at the end.
  • Application Counter - It counts the number of open applications and puts it on the end of the message.
  • Application Filter - Crosschecks with a list of about 100 application names to return the real one.
  • Add your own app - Easy API to add your own app name in an ini file. Just open the apps.ini where you placed it and put it in. You’ll see how it’s done when you look at the other applications.
