CTCP extends the IRC protocol's existing PRIVMSG by adding $chr(1) at the start and at the end of the message.

 PRIVMSG NICK :?version?


 PRIVMSG NICK $+(:,$chr(1),version,$chr(1))

Most clients can handle CTCP's as their own commands and events, like mIRC. Most common CTCP commands, recognised by majority of clients are:

  • TIME
  • PING

Sends a CTCP (Client to Client Protocol) request to the user.

/ctcp <nick> <request>
