This command allows you to join IRC channels. There are a number of conditions for joining IRC channels that the IRC server will check automatically before actually allowing you to join. Assuming that you are not banned or trying to join an invite only channel, you will be joined to the channel the moment you issue this command. This command takes at least 1 argument, the channel you want to join. To join #channel, type this command:

/join #channel

Some channels have what is known as a channel key, which is controlled by channel mode +k. This essentially acts as a password and you cannot join the channel without knowing the key. If you know the key, you provide it in the join command. If you want to join #channel that is keyed with the string "12345", you would type this command:

/join #channel 12345
