What's a ``channel'' will be explained on page gif

ircII `` ON'' command for instance...

It has already been done...

The syntax of the commands uses the following conventions: parameters are between <angle brackets>, [square brackets] surround optional parameters and options are separated by |.

In ircII versions prior to 2.2, too many people in the NOTIFY list cause excessive slowness.

Most of the informations in this section can also be obtained by issuing `` /HELP CHANNEL''

These lists may be very long! Remember to filter them with `` -MIN n''.

Note that the look of the result depends on each client version, and might not be exactly the same as in the examples shown here.

Most of the informations in this section can also be obtained by issuing `` /HELP MODE''.

Don't use this command too often, it floods the net with worthless information.

Don't rely on the user@host given by the WHOIS command to send mail. For people registered on NickServ, you can `` /msg NickServ@Service.de WHOIS nick'' to get their E-mail address.

This list can get very long!

It's up to the server administrator to implement this feature or not. It may not work on some machines.

When someone says, ``I want a programming language in which I need only say what I wish done,'' give him a lollipop. --- Alan Perlis, Epigrams on Programming (1982), quoted by Donald E. Knuth in the TeXbook.
