This script adds a 'BookHelp' menu with several sub-menus to the nicklist popup in mIRC.
It is intended to be used to help people ;)
The file extension autohelp sends an automatic help notice (which is not seen in the channel, hence 'silent') to person based on a simple filetype question detection routine, i.e. if someone says "how do I open rar?" in the channel, the script will notice that:
a) line does not begin with a '!' --->> not a file request
b) contains words 'how' and 'rar' --->> most likely a help request
Autohelp exists only for most commonly asked filetypes: ace, chm, dvi, lit, mht, prc, pdb, rar, r00, r01
The script will show a notice in your status window when autohelp is sent.
Do not enable autohelp in chat channels!
To load, type /load -rs bookhelp.mrc (for example, in your status window)
If you need to see help message yourself, right-click on your nick on channel and choose desired item from the menu - the answer will be echo'ed to the channel window, other users will not see it.
