Irssi tips

Save log to a file

To save the messages in irssi buffer (for the current channel), just execute the command:

/lastlog -file <filename>

Error Undefined subroutine &Irssi::statusbar_item_register called at

If you get this error when developing or using a script, the developer probably forgot to use the right module. Add at the top of the file:

use Irssi::TextUI;

I wrote a script that stopped to work after I upgraded Irssi, so I think it is a change added in a newer version of Irssi.
