think in pennmush was useful for to things for me:
- appending things to a client log (or putting it at the beginning).
=> It already fulfills the first one adequately.
- easily checking how some things would be evaluated.
Is there a way to be able to preview formatting evaluation? If so, I’d be interested! I haven’t found anything myself yet.
If not, I’d like to suggest a new switch for echo to provide this functionality for the reasons below.
For instance, if I want to send something to someone formatted (txt, page, new plugins, etc), I don’t want to do it blind. Or if I want to just check what my forum message looks like because I want to iterate on formatting quickly.
Added bonus, the suggested implementation would be cross-cutting feature-wise, so it will be future proof for all commands (core or extras plugins) which accept to-be-evaluated user input.
