IRC commands. And its services!

This article is not written for professionals, it is written for those who are familiar with the IRC, but wants more, wants to continue their knowledge in the world of IRC!

In this article we will consider not only the IRC commands, but also consider the commands for such useful services as NickServ, ChanServ and MemoServ, which in my opinion, too, need to know, or at least be familiar with them!
