I tend to typo my heart out on IRC, but after I installed the latest available Gaim for my Ubuntu-EdgyI noticed a plugin for autocorrecting typos;
In Gaim go to: Tools> Plugins> Text replacement.
So I Grabbed the words with the replacements from /usr/lib/gaim/spellchk.so and converted the plugin to a replace.conf for Xchat2.
If you want to try it, download it (save link as) and
‘cp replace.conf.txt .xchat2/replace.conf’ (without the ‘)
If you would like to add more words in XChat, go to :
Settings > Advanced > Auto-replace
to add more words and their corrections
I would like to thank pmjdebruijn for hinting me to sed for editing the autoreplace file
Happy IRCing y’all !
