Replaces any occurrence of substring in string with newstring except for replacements that have already been made.


This is the same as $replace but it doesn't replace already replaced text (see example below).

$replacexcs is the case-sensitive version of $replaxce.


; set a test text
var %mytext = This is moo
; actually replace substrings
var %mynewtext = $replacex(%mytext,is,moo,moo,foo)
; echo it to the active window
echo -a %mynewtext

This example will echo Thmoo moo foo as at first is was replaced by moo and after that, all moo that are no replacement, replaced by foo.

To reverse any changes a user makes to the channel, take a look at this script.
