If the <channel> argument is omitted, the current window's current channel is used. THIS IS NOT NECCESARILY THE CORRECT CHANNEL IN AN /ON!
If the <channel> argument is the literal star character (``*''), the current window's current channel is used. THIS IS NOT NECCESARILY THE CORRECT CHANNEL IN AN /ON
This function returns the channel operators on the specified channel.
You must be on the channel; the empty string is returned if you are not.
Before /ON CHANNEL_SYNC
is thrown, this function may return the empty string (because EPIC does not know who are the channel operators yet.)
A design defect in the historical server implementation may cause truncated nicknames to be included in the list. The client corrects these truncated nicknames by watching the WHO reply. Before /ON CHANNEL_SYNC
is thrown, truncated nicknames may be included in this list.
In general you cannot use this function in a status_format.
The most common use of $chops() is to send a message to all the channel
operators. You can use /FE to break up the list into groups that won't
offend your server, and use $sar() to convert the spaces into commas.
The channel operators on the specified channel. You must be on the channel.
Before /ON CHANNEL_SYNC, this function may return the empty string, or a
list with truncated nicknames.
$chops(#foo) shows operators on channel #foo
$chops(*) shows channel operators on current channel
$chops() shows channel operators on current channel
This function first appeared in “+3” (post-ircII, pre-EPIC). Support
for the default argument and for “*” first appeared in “+4”.
