Done. But colors are not preserved in cut of messages (IMHO, it would make more complex code, for something not really useful).

So with fix:
- privmsg is split correctly (CTCP is preserved)
- /me is split
- other messages are split: ison, join, notice, wallops, 005, 353
- messages sent by relay plugin to clients of irc proxy are split.

For dcc chat (xfer), I think it's not needed to split messages since there is no IRC server between partners (tell me if I'm wrong). Moreover, it's not an IRC message (with PRIVMSG), but only a string with a final new line char. I made some tests with some other IRC clients, no problem with large messages.

And this split is accessible to other plugins/scripts with new info_hashtable called "irc_message_split".

Currently weechat has auto-splitting for normal text only; with the following detractions.

  • Doesn't work for /me (actions)
  • Doesn't work for dcc chat (xfer plugin)
  • Doesn't preserve current color/other state

I have a patch set which fixes all of the above issues, and 20100514-07:51:22 Veinor!~Veinor@XVM-ONE-160.MIT.EDU): Patrick has asked the following in #weechat (in a quite timely manor)

20100514-07:38:25       Veinor | Does weechat have any support for auto-wrapping long lines?
20100514-07:42:00      MJEvans | Veinor: rephrase, do not use wrapping
20100514-07:42:25       Veinor | I mean... if I enter a really, really long line into the input area
20100514-07:42:31       Veinor | is there any support for automatically breaking it up?
20100514-07:42:50      MJEvans | it will auto-split normal text on non DCC chat buffers.
20100514-07:43:17      MJEvans | It /currently/ will not auto split DCC buffers to work with broken clients, nor will it auto-split 'actions' (/me does something long)
20100514-07:43:42       Veinor | yeah, the actions are what I need split. :P
