Irssi, hilight and regex

I use irssi for IRC and wanted to highlight various regexes in different channels. Unfortunately the help text wasn't very helpful, so here's an example.

/hilight -channels "#foo,#bar,##baz" -regexp (foo|bar|baz)

    How do you get notified when you switch windows and don't see irsii? I mean avoiding always remembering to check it. Do you have some popup or audio notification? I'm using in <code>screen</code>

      I don't want to be notified :-) I have the same setup as you, irssi inside screen, but when I don't see it it's because I don't want to.

      But I know there is a plugin that can write a log that can be read by notification tools, e.g. https://github.com/kfdm/irssi-growl

Markdown. Syntax highlighting with <code lang="php"><?php echo "Hello, world!"; ?></code> etc.
