window kill


This destroys the current window. If this is the last window connected to a server, the server is disconnected.

A window can't be killed if:

  • The window is not killable.
  • It is the last non-fixed window on a screen and there are no hidden windows to take its place.


  • /ON WINDOW_BEFOREKILL is thrown first so your script can be warned.
  • If the window is the final window on the screen, it is swapped out
  • Otherwise, it is hidden (made invisible)
  • The window's scrollback and lastlog histories are deleted.
  • The window's queries and nicklist are deleted
  • The window's channels ARE NOT PARTED, they are moved to another window.
  • /ON WINDOW_KILL is thrown when the whole process is done.


This operation was already present in ircII2.1.5g.
