Title: MIRC: Brief overview of basic commands
Written By: Kris Weinhold
After you are connected to an IRC server, you need to know a few commands to move around. Here they are:|
The /JOIN command allows you to join a channel of your choice, or if the channel doesn't exist, the channel is created.
Syntax: /JOIN [#channel name] [the key]
The channel name is whatever the channel is called, plus a # sign added before it.
/JOIN #example bitschips
If you're in a channel, and you wish to speak to someone privately, you use the /MSG command.
Syntax: /MSG [alias] [your message]
The alias is the person's nickname for whom you wish to chat with privately.
/MSG Bud Hi Bud, how's it going?
If you want to find out something about another person, such as their IP address, server, or Name you use the /WHOIS command. Note, that to get names, e-mail addresses, etc., to be displayed by the /WHOIS command, the user must have this data available to you.
The alias is the person to whom you wish to lookup information.
These are the few basic commands that you need to navigate around in MIRC. Have fun!
