Ctcp

Purpose

Handles standard CTCP responses to PING, TIME, SOURCE, VERSION, USERINFO, and FINGER.

Usage

Provides replies to common CTCPs (version, time, etc.), and a command to fetch version responses from channels.

Please note that the command ctcp version cannot receive any responses if the channel is mode +C or similar which prevents CTCP requests to channel.

Commands

version [<channel>] [–nicks]
Sends a CTCP VERSION to <channel>, returning the various version strings returned. It waits for 10 seconds before returning the versions received at that point. If –nicks is given, nicks are associated with the version strings; otherwise, only the version strings are given.
