Misc

Purpose

Miscellaneous commands.

Usage

Miscellaneous commands to access Supybot core. This is a core Supybot plugin that should not be removed!

Commands

apropos <string>
Searches for <string> in the commands currently offered by the bot, returning a list of the commands containing that string.
clearmores takes no arguments
Clears all mores for the current network.
completenick [<channel>] <beginning> [–match-case]
Returns the nick of someone on the channel whose nick begins with the given <beginning>. <channel> defaults to the current channel.
help [<plugin>] [<command>]
This command gives a useful description of what <command> does. <plugin> is only necessary if the command is in more than one plugin. You may also want to use the ‘list’ command to list all available plugins and commands.
last [–{from,in,on,with,without,regexp} <value>] [–nolimit]
Returns the last message matching the given criteria. –from requires a nick from whom the message came; –in requires a channel the message was sent to; –on requires a network the message was sent on; –with requires some string that had to be in the message; –regexp requires a regular expression the message must match; –nolimit returns all the messages that can be found. By default, the channel this command is given in is searched.
list [–private] [–unloaded] [<plugin>]
Lists the commands available in the given plugin. If no plugin is given, lists the public plugins available. If –private is given, lists the private plugins. If –unloaded is given, it will list available plugins that are not loaded.
more [<nick>]
If the last command was truncated due to IRC message length limitations, returns the next chunk of the result of the last command. If <nick> is given, it takes the continuation of the last command from <nick> instead of the person sending this message.
noticetell <nick> <text>
Tells the <nick> whatever <text> is, in a notice. Use nested commands to your benefit here.
ping takes no arguments
Checks to see if the bot is alive.
source takes no arguments
Returns a URL saying where to get Limnoria.
tell <nick> <text>
Tells the <nick> whatever <text> is. Use nested commands to your benefit here.
version takes no arguments
Returns the version of the current bot.
