PING

The PING command is used to test the presence of an active client or server at the other end of the connection. Servers send a PING message at regular intervals if no other activity detected coming from a connection. If a connection fails to respond to a PING message within a set amount of time, that connection is closed. A PING message MAY be sent even if the connection is active. Note that this is different from a CTCP PING command..

WATCH

Watch is a notify-type system on the server which is both faster and uses less network resources than any old-style notify system. The server will send you a message when any nickname in your watch list logs on or off. The watch list DOES NOT REMAIN BETWEEN SESSIONS - You (or your script or client) must add the nicknames to your watch list every time you connect to an IRC server.

Syntax:

WATCH +nick1 +nick2 +nick3 (Add nicknames)
WATCH -nick (Delete nicknames)
WATCH (View which users are online)

WHO

Retrieves information about users In its most simple form the syntax is 'WHO #channel' or 'WHO nickname' However we also support the extended who syntax (WHOX):

Syntax:

/WHO <mask> [options]
/WHO <mask> [options [mask2]]

The mask can contain wildcards such as * and ?

The options consist of [<flags>][%[<fields>[,<querytype>]]] Where: The <flags> define where to SEARCH on, and may contain one or more letters:

n: nick name
u: user name (ident)
h: host name [*]
i: IP address [*]
s: server name [*]
r: real name (gecos)
a: account name (services account)
m: user modes (the mask contains for example +z or -z) [*]
R: sets output to show real hostnames [*]
I: sets output to show IP addresses [*]
Items marked with [*] mean that IRCOp privileges are (possibly) required.

The <fields> decide which fields appear in the WHO output (note that any fields are always outputed in this order:)

t: querytype (the <querytype> parameter that was provided in <options>)
c: first channel name the user is on
u: user name (ident)
i: IP Address [*]
h: hostname [*]
H: real hostname [*]
s: server name
n: nick name
f: status flags (explained later)
m: user modes [*]
d: number of server hops (eg: 0 means user is on same server)
l: seconds idle (only for users on the same server as you, otherwise 0)
a: account name (services account)
o: operclass name [*]
r: real name (gecos)
Items marked with [*] mean that IRCOp privileges are (possibly) required.

And finally, the <querytype> is a word that clients can use to tag WHO requests so they can easily see which WHO response belongs to what WHO request.

Examples of simple WHO requests:

WHO #channel        - To list all users in a channel
WHO 1.2.3.4         - To show all users with this IP address (IRCOp only)

Examples of WHOX requests:

WHO Servic* n       - Show all users which name starts with Servic (Only IRCOps are likely to see the full list)
WHO #chan cI        - Show all users in channel #chan with their IP address instead of hostname (IRCOp only)
WHO z m             - Show all users with user mode z set, that is: all users on SSL/TLS. (IRCOp only command)
WHO -z m            - Show all insecure users, without umode z. (IRCOp only command)

Examples of WHOX requests using output modifiers:

WHO #test %acfhnru  - Show all users in the channel #test and show various fields, among which 'a' (services account) is not displayed by normal WHO.

Status flags: The WHO command shows several flags in the returned result to indicate different information about the user. These flags are explained below: G - User is /away (gone) H - User is not /away (here) r - User is using a registered nickname B - User is a bot (+B) s - User is securely connected (SSL/TLS)

  • - User is an IRC Operator

~ - User is a Channel Owner (+q) & - User is a Channel Admin (+a) @ - User is a Channel Operator (+o) % - User is a Halfop (+h) + - User is Voiced (+v) ! - User is +H and you are an IRC Operator

WHOIS

Shows information about the user in question, such as their "Name", channels they are currently in, their hostmask, etc.

Syntax:

WHOIS <user>

Example:

WHOIS hAtbLaDe

Status flags: The list of channels shown in the WHOIS reply can include one or more status flags to indicate information about the channel. These flags are described below:

~ - User is a Channel Owner (+q)
& - User is a Channel Admin (+a)
@ - User is a Channel Operator (+o)
% - User is a Halfop (+h)
+ - User is Voiced (+v)
