IRC commands. And his services!

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

In this article, we will consider not only IRC teams, but also consider teams for such useful services as NickServ, ChanServ and MemoServ, which in my opinion also need to be known, or at least be familiar with them! We will not consider the client's mIRC teams, if they are still interested in you, then look at the mIRC help, if it's bad with English, then download the help translated into Russian!

There is no limit to the number of people who can participate in a conversation or the limitation of channels that can be formed in IRC. (If you want to know more about the birth of IRC, read
