Yeah I'll have to look into socket support, probably a better idea in the end anyway. However I do have an idea.
like mIRC it would be handy if kixforms of kix itself could watch events for instance:
if $socketname = "somesocketnamehere"
But probably won't see the light of day since if you would implement such a thing it has to look trough your scripts and see if a script waits for such an event, so you would have to load your script into kix or kixforms memory.
If you want to see an example of my idea goto my site SphinxScript and download the SSFserv addon, open the .mrc file in notepad and search for "sockopen"
