Default Can't load any scripts in ircII

Well, I can't figure this out, so I thought it couldn't hurt to ask around anywhere I could...

So I have ircII-2.8.2 (yea, it's old but I have a few psychological issues and one of them prevents me from wanting to change IRC clients) and I'm trying to load scripts via the /load command, as well as from inside the .ircrc file automatically on ircII startup, but no scripts load either way.

This is the error message that shows up in the ircII screen:

Code:
*** /home/guitarscn/.irc/script.irc is executable and may not be loaded
This happens with every single script I try, including some well-known popular ones and all of that.

What does this error mean? Why won't any scripts load?

Have a look at the permissions on the scripts in your script directories.

I did a quick try with a different version of ircII, and I got the same message trying to /load a script that I made executable (in this case mode 755). So try making sure your scripts have mode 644 for example.

$ chmod 644 /script-directory/*

As to why it shouldn't be executable, dunno exactly, though it seems reasonable perhaps as a precaution. Never used irc scripts. Hope it helps.

And what may I ask, does user scripting of web pages have to do with a command line based IRC client, dear Mr digging up old posts with non sense to likely get by the posting regs, Hmm?
