Returns the parsed variable response from a custom command.

Recursive $(references) invocations are blocked!

You may not call a $(references) variable from within another $(references) variable. This is to prevent service abuse.


This variable takes one required parameter that is the name of a custom command that should be referenced.

Example Output

Assuming an existing command of !hello with a response of Hello $(user)!, if invoked by the user Fossabot:

  • $(references hello)

    Hello Fossabot!

Error Output

  • In case a custom command does not exist:

    [Error: Command not found.]
  • In case a command is not specified in the arguments:

    [Error: Input argument required.]
