List (IRC command)

From Ravenchat Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This command will generate a list of IRC channels on the network. This command takes no arguments. To generate the list, simply issue the command like so:

/list

Points to note

It is not recommended to run this command for two reasons. First, on a larger IRC network, this command can return a list with thousands of entries in it. Individual IRC servers will limit how much data they allow you to download all at once with one command. As such, you risk being killed off of the network with the error message "Max Recvq exceeded." Safety features in the software we use mitigate this risk, but it can still theoretically happen.

Second, This command is deprecated and may be removed entirely in the future. You probably wish to use ChanServ's list instead. This command provides finer grained controls for the types of output you wish to see.
