As I am using bitlbee and quite a few autojoined irc-channels, irssi can get a lot less handy because of its many windows.
are M-0 to M-9 to quickly navigate through the first 10 windows. M-a
gets you to what irssi thinks that is the active window, but I want to
control this myself. "/window 27" is a long command, that takes long to
So I decided to add a few aliases. I didnt want to write an
irssi-script for it, and since I never had more than 100 windows, I
$ i=0; while [[ $i -le 100 ]]; do echo /alias $i /window $i; ((i++)); done
in bash and pasted the output into irssi. Now I can acces windows via /<window_number>, i.e. /1, /27, /100. Nice.
