BASIC IRC COMMANDS.
/Server : Port

specify a port number you wish to connect to on that server.
USAGE: /Server [server.name | server.ip] port

Command to Join a Channel.
USAGE: /JOIN channel,channel channel key
Example : /join #channel

Channel zero used to refer to the status window of the client.
Example : /join #0,0 (or)/join 0,#channel
Command to make your client leave a channel or channels with an
optional parting message.
USAGE: /PART channel,channel part message

Command to reveal the nicknames of all nicks in the specified channel
who are not on the mode invisible (+i).
Multiple targets in the /names command are not allowed.
USAGE: /Names #channel
Command to list the channels on the network. Option can be appended
to the /list command to limit its search. If you don't include any options,
the default is to send you the entire unfiltered list of channels. If a
listing is in progress, a second /list command with no parameters after
the listing has started will halt the listing. Below are the options you
can use, and what channels LIST will return when you use them.
USAGE: /List Option
EXAMPLE: /LIST lists all channels.
EXAMPLE: /LIST >300 lists channels with more than 300 nicks in them.
EXAMPLE: /LIST >50 lists channels with less than 50 nicks in them.
EXAMPLE: /LIST *mirc* lists channels with the word "mirc" in them.
EXAMPLE: /LIST >9,<101 *mirc* lists channels with 10-100 nicks and
with the word "mirc" in the channel name or topic.
USAGE: /Who [[+|-][acghmnsu] [args]
Searchs for users who are not invisible (+i) [unless you are using +c]
based on the criteria specified. The basic form of the information returned
is how you remember what you can check against. The following options
are in logical order across the /WHO Reply line, rather than in
alphabetical order by mode.
||List channels with more than number people. |
||List channels with less than number people. |
||List channels created between now and number minutes ago.
||List channels created earlier than number minutes ago.
||List channels whose topics are older than number minutes
(unchanged in the last number minutes.) |
||List channels whose topics are not older than number
||List channels that match *mask* |
||List channels that do not match *mask* |
EXAMPLE: /WHO +n John* searches for all nicks starting with John plus any
additional characters after that.
EXAMPLE: /WHO +u CoolmIRC searches for all users of the CoolmIRC script.
EXAMPLE: /WHO +ch #FunFactory *.aol.com searches #FunFactory for all AOL users.

except it will stay connected regardless of Ping timeouts or connections
being reset by peer. If the client gets disconnected from their ISP
the connection will drop and has to redial in.
