mIRC alias or raw syntax?

Post by fearcry » Sat Sep 26, 2020 10:25 am

just a simple question,
i see in some postings here something like this

/gline - user@IP (example)

for me this seems like mIRC-aliases and does not show
what exact raw data a client is sending to an ircd.

Am i right ?

MOD EDIT: Topic split off to new one

To answer your direct question: In case of IRCOp commands, most clients won't know anything about those (except /KILL maybe), so the raw syntax (GLINE user@host) would be identical to the displayed syntax except for the slash at the beginning (/GLINE user@host).

If you are a client coder and want to know more about the IRC protocol then have a look at RFC1459. Daniel also does a great job at https://modern.ircdocs.horse/. All this is about the generic IRC protocol though, like connecting, joining channels and sending messages and such, not so much IRCOp commands.
