Hosting Chat Communities


The Ircx command enables sending and receiving IRCX commands on a client, and displays the status of the IRCX protocol. Once the client has turned on the IRCX mode for a session, there is no way to turn it off.

To find out whether a chat server supports IRCX commands, use the Mode ISIRCX command before you register with the chat server. To find out if your client has turned on ISIRCX mode for this session, use the Isircx command.



When you issue the Ircx command, the return message appears in the following format:

State Version PackageList MaxMsg OptionList

The message is defined in the following table:

State Indicates whether the client has IRCX mode enabled (0 for disabled, 1 for enabled).
Version The version of the IRCX protocol, starting at 0.
PackageList   A list of authentication packages supported by the chat server. The package name of "ANON" indicates that anonymous connections are permitted.
MaxMsg Defines the maximum message size permitted. The standard is 512 KB.
OptionList A list of options supported by the server; these are implementation-dependent. If no options are available, the asterisk (*) is used.
