Lists currently available channels.
/LIST [#channel] [-MIN #] [-MAX #]
You can tell mIRC to show only channels with a minimum and a maximum number of people. If you specify a #channel then mIRC will only list information for that channel. If you specify wildcards, eg. *mirc* then mIRC will list all channels that contain the word mirc in them.
Note LIST does not return channels with modes +s or +p set unless you are on them or an irc operator.
Lists currently available channels with more control on QuakeNet and ircu servers with:
Where parameters is a space or comma separated list of one or more of: <max_users ; Show all channels with less than max_users. >min_users ; Show all channels with more than min_users. C<max_minutes ; Channels that exist less than max_minutes. C>min_minutes ; Channels that exist more than min_minutes. T<max_minutes ; Channels with a topic last set less than max_minutes ago. T>min_minutes ; Channels with a topic last set more than min_minutes ago. pattern ; Channels with names matching pattern. !pattern ; Channels with names not matching pattern. Note: Patterns may contain * and ?. You may only give one pattern match constraint. S ; Show secret channels. (IRC Operator only) M ; Show channel modes. (IRC Operator only)
Note: QuakeNet and ircu support server-side wildcard matching and the stop/parameter options. To use this and save on receiving a lot of unneeded information, you must precede the wildcard match with a #, e.g. #*help* will return any channel with the word help in it. If you do not precede the channel with a # mIRC's built in feature will grab all channels then mask out the channels you don't want, wasting a lot of time and resources.
Note: The parameters will not get sent correctly if you just type /list in mIRC, to prevent mIRC trying to parse your input you can send the command directly to the server using the /quote command.
Lists all available channels.
