Installation problems
You'll need to have perl support compiled with irssi. If "/LOAD"
doesn't show perl in list of loaded modules, you have a problem. See
INSTALL file for information about perl problems.
Running scripts
Scripts are run with /SCRIPT LOAD command, or the default /RUN alias.
"/SCRIPT" shows list of running scripts, and /SCRIPT UNLOAD can unload
Scripts should be placed to ~/.irssi/scripts/ or
/usr/local/lib/irssi/scripts/ (or depending on where irssi was
installed) directories. After that /RUN script_name should work, you
don't need to add the .pl suffix.
Irssi's signals
Irssi is pretty much based on sending and handling different signals.
Like when you receive a message from server, say
:nick! PRIVMSG you :blahblah
Irssi will first send a signal:
"server incoming", SERVER_REC, "nick!user@there PRIVMSG ..."
You probably don't want to use this signal. Default handler for this
signal interprets the header and sends a signal:
"server event", SERVER_REC, "PRIVMSG ...", "nick", ""
You probably don't want to use this either, since this signal's default
handler parses the event string and sends a signal:
"event privmsg", SERVER_REC, "you :blahblah", "nick", ""
You can at any point grab the signal, do whatever you want to do with
it and optionally stop it from going any further by calling
For example:
sub event_privmsg {
# $data = "nick/#channel :text"
my ($server, $data, $nick, $address) = @_;
my ($target, $text) = split(/ :/, $data, 2);
Irssi::signal_stop() if ($text =~ /free.*porn/ || $nick =~ /idiot/);
Irssi::signal_add("event privmsg", "event_privmsg")
This will hide all public or private messages that match the regexp
"free.*porn" or the sender's nick contain the word "idiot". Yes, you
could use /IGNORE instead for both of these :)
You can also use signal_add_last() if you wish to let the Irssi's internal
functions be run before yours.
A list of signals that irssi sends can be found from signals.txt file.
Creating/replacing /COMMANDS
You can create your own commands, or replace existing ones with
Irssi::command_bind(). The command handling work internally pretty much
the same as signal handlers, so if you replace existing command and don't
wish to let it run, call Irssi::signal_stop().
Here's an example:
# Usage: /HELLO [<nick>]
sub cmd_hello {
# data - contains the parameters for /HELLO
# server - the active server in window
# witem - the active window item (eg. channel, query)
# or undef if the window is empty
my ($data, $server, $witem) = @_;
if (!$server || !$server->{connected}) {
Irssi::print("Not connected to server");
if ($data) {
$server->command("MSG $data Hello!");
} elsif ($witem && ($witem->{type} eq "CHANNEL" ||
$witem->{type} eq "QUERY")) {
# there's query/channel active in window
$witem->command("MSG ".$witem->{name}." Hello!");
} else {
Irssi::print("Nick not given, and no active channel/query in window");
Irssi::command_bind('hello', 'cmd_hello');
Message levels
Several functions expect message levels. They're used to roughly
classify messages. They're used by a lot of things including logging,
ignoring, highlighting, etc. so you should use as good level as
possible. It's possible to have several levels in one message, like
Here's all the levels that irssi supports currently:
And a few special ones that could be included with the levels above:
HILIGHT - text is highlighted
NOHILIGHT - don't check highlighting for this message
NO_ACT - don't trigger channel activity when printing this message
NEVER - never ignore or log this message (not a good idea usually)
You can use them with a MSGLEVEL_ prefix, for example:
$server->print("#channel", 'Hello, world', MSGLEVEL_CLIENTCRAP);
Writes text to #channel window with CLIENTCRAP level.
Window items
Meaning of "window" should be pretty clear, but "window item" is
something I couldn't really figure out a better name for :) They're
simply something that's inside a window, a channel or a query usually.
Windows can have multiple items inside them. It's possible to create
non-channel/query window items too, currently the third possible window
item is created by /EXEC -interactive.
In scripts, I think you can quite safely assume that the window item is
query or channel if the script is intended to be run in one of them.
Stupid users won't probably have other window items, and smart users
know where to run the script, or at least later figure out why it
didn't work :)
Functions that you can use in Irssi's Perl scripts
If there's a "Xxxx::" text before the command, it means that it belongs to
that package. Like "Server::command" means that you should either call it as
Irssi::Server::command($server, $cmd);
or more easily:
Commands that don't have the Xxxx prefix are called as Irssi::command();
Information from most objects can be fetched with $object->{data}, for
example current nick in server could be read with $server->{nick}. List
of all the information that are in objects are in "Object->{}" sections
Commands are split in two groups, generic ones that could be used with
any chat protocol, and IRC specific commands. If you want to use IRC
specific commands, or use IRC specific ->{data} in your scripts, you'll
need to add "use Irssi::Irc" to your scripts. IRC specific commands are
listed after the generic ones.
*** General
Window active_win() - return active window
Server active_server() - return server in active window
windows() - return list of all windows
servers() - return list of all servers
reconnects() - return list of all server reconnections
channels() - return list of all channels
queries() - return list of all queries
commands() - return list of all commands
logs() - return list of all log files
ignores() - returns list of all ignores
Server::channels() - return list of channels in server
Server::queries() - return list of queries in server
print(str[, level])
Server::print(channel, str[, level])
Window::print(str[, level])
Windowitem::print(str[, level])
Print `str'. Default level is MSGLEVEL_CLIENTNOTICE.
Send a command `cmd' (in current channel). The '/' char isn't needed.
*** Themes
You can have user configurable texts in scripts that work just like
irssi's internal texts that can be changed in themes.
First you'll have to register the formats:
'format_name', '{hilight my perl format!}',
'format2', 'testing.. nick = $0, channel = $1'
Printing happens with one of the functions:
printformat(level, format, ...)
Window::printformat(level, format, ...)
Server::printformat(target, level, format, ...)
Windowitem::printformat(level, format, ...)
For example:
$channel->printformat(MSGLEVEL_CRAP, 'format2',
'nick', $channel->{name});
*** Settings
Return value for setting.
settings_set_str(key, value)
settings_set_int(key, value)
settings_set_bool(key, value)
settings_set_time(key, value)
settings_set_level(key, value)
settings_set_size(key, value)
Set value for setting.
If you change the settings of another module/script with one of these, you
must emit a "setup changed" signal afterwards.
settings_add_str(section, key, def)
settings_add_int(section, key, def)
settings_add_bool(section, key, def)
settings_add_time(section, key, def)
settings_add_level(section, key, def)
settings_add_size(section, key, def)
Create new setting.
Remove a setting.
*** Signals
signal_emit(signal, ...)
Send signal `signal'. You can give 6 parameters at maximum.
Continue currently emitted signal with different parameters.
signal_add(signal, func)
Bind `signal' to function `func'.
signal_add_first(signal, func)
Bind `signal' to function `func'. Call `func' as soon as possible.
signal_add_last(signal, func)
Bind `signal' to function `func'. Call `func' as late as possible.
signal_remove(signal, func)
Unbind `signal' from function `func'.
Stop the signal that's currently being emitted.
Stop the signal with name `signal' that's currently being emitted.
Register parameter types for one or more signals.
`hash' must map one or more signal names to references to arrays
containing 0 to 6 type names. Some recognized type names include
int for integers, intptr for references to integers and string for
strings. For all standard signals see src/perl/perl-signals-list.h
in the source code (this is generated by src/perl/
Any signals that were already registered are unaffected.
Registration is required to get any parameters to signals written in
Perl and to emit and continue signals from Perl.
*** timeouts / IO listener / pidwait
timeout_add(msecs, func, data)
Call `func' every `msecs' milliseconds (1000 = 1 second) with
parameter `data'. Returns tag which can be used to stop the timeout.
timeout_add_once(msecs, func, data);
Call `func' once after `msecs' milliseconds (1000 = 1 second)
with parameter `data'. Returns tag which can be used to stop the timeout.
Remove timeout with tag.
input_add(source, condition, func, data)
Call `func' with parameter `data' when specified IO happens.
`source' is the file handle that is being listened. `condition' can
be INPUT_READ, INPUT_WRITE or both. Returns tag which can be used to
remove the listener.
Remove listener with tag.
Adds `pid' to the list of processes to wait for. The pid must identify
a child process of the irssi process. When the process terminates, a
"pidwait" signal will be sent with the pid and the status from
waitpid(). This is useful to avoid zombies if your script forks.
Removes `pid' from the list of processes to wait for. Terminated
processes are removed automatically, so it is usually not necessary
to call this function.
*** Message levels
Level string -> number
Level number -> string
combine_level(level, str)
Combine level number to level string ("+level -level").
Return new level number.
*** Commands
cmd - Command name
category - Category
command_bind(cmd, func[, category])
Bind command `cmd' to call function `func'. `category' is the
category where the command is displayed in /HELP.
command_runsub(cmd, data, server, item)
Run subcommands for `cmd'. First word in `data' is parsed as
subcommand. `server' is Irssi::Server rec for current
Irssi::Windowitem `item'.
Call command_runsub in handler function for `cmd' and bind
with command_bind("`cmd' `subcmd'", subcmdfunc[, category]);
command_unbind(cmd, func)
Unbind command `cmd' from function `func'.
command_set_options(cmd, data)
Set options for command `cmd' to `data'. `data' is a string of
space separated words which specify the options. Each word can be
optionally prefixed with one of the following character:
'-': optional argument
'+': argument required
'@': optional numeric argument
command_parse_options(cmd, data)
Parse options for command `cmd' in `data'. It returns a reference to
an hash table with the options and a string with the remaining part
of `data'. On error it returns the undefined value.

*** Server redirections
This is a powerful feature of Irssi that I haven't seen in other IRC
clients. You can EASILY grab the server's reply for a command you send
to server without any horrible kludges.
redirect_register(command, remote, timeout, start, stop, opt)
Register new redirection command. By default irssi has already
registered at least: whois, whowas, who, list, ison, userhost, ping,
"mode channel" (/MODE #channel), "mode b" (/MODE #channel b), "mode e"
and "mode I".
`command' specifies the name of the command to register, it doesn't
have to be a real command name, but something you just specify to
redirect_event() when using this redirection.
`remote' specifies if the command is by default a remote command
(eg. sent to another server). redirect_event() may override this.
`timeout' - If remote is TRUE, specifies how many seconds to wait for
reply before aborting.
`start', `stop', `opt' - hash references with "event" => argpos entries.
List of events that start and stop this redirection.
Start event list may be empty, but there must be at least one
stop event. Optional events are checked only if they are received
immediately after one of the stop-events. `argpos' specifies the
word number in event string which is compared to wanted argument,
-1 = don't compare, TRUE always.
Example (already done by irssi):
Irssi::redirect_register('mode channel', 0, 0,
undef, # no start events
{ # stop events
"event 324" => 1, # MODE-reply
"event 403" => 1, # no such channel
"event 442" => 1, # "you're not on that channel"
"event 479" => 1 # "Cannot join channel (illegal name)"
}, { # optional events
"event 329", 1 # Channel create time
} );
Server::redirect_event(command, count, arg, remote, failure_signal, signals)
Specify that the next command sent to server will be redirected.
NOTE: This command MUST be called before sending the command to server.
`command' - Name of the registered redirection that we're using.
`count' - How many times to execute the redirection. Some commands may
send multiple stop events, like MODE #a,#b.
`arg' - The argument to be compared in event strings. You can give multiple
arguments separated with space.
`remote' - Specifies if the command is a remote command, -1 = use default.
`failure_signal' - If irssi can't find the stop signal for the redirection,
this signal is called.
`signals' - hash reference with "event" => "redir signal" entries.
If the event is "", all the events belonging to the redirection but not
specified here, will be sent there.
# ignore all events generated by whois query, except 311.
$server->redirect_event("whois", 1, "cras", 0, undef, {
"event 311" => "redir whois",
"" => "event empty" });
$server->send_raw("WHOIS :cras");

Server::channels_join(channels, automatic)
Join to channels in server. `channels' may also contain keys for
channels just like with /JOIN command. `automatic' specifies if this
channel was joined "automatically" or if it was joined because join
was requested by user. If channel join is "automatic", irssi doesn't
jump to the window where the channel was joined.

Bugs and Limitations
* Calling die in 'script error' handler causes segfault (#101)
* Storing and later using any Irssi object may result in use-after-free related crash
- Workaround: always acquire fresh objects
* Calling $dcc->close from the "dcc created" signal will cause unstable behaviour and crashes (#386)
- Workaround: use "dcc request" signal instead AND call
&Irssi::signal_continue(@_); as the first thing
