 +======Synopsis:​======
 +$__idle__()
 +
 +======Technical:​======
 +   * Arguments, if any, will be ignored.
 +   * Returns the number of seconds since you last pressed a key.
 +   * Equivalent to $E.
 +   * Present for compatibility with ircII.
 +
 +======Practical:​======
 +This returns your "idle time", which is measured by the number of seconds
 +since you last pressed a key, which is what we consider "not idle"​. ​ Use 
 +$idle() instead of $E if you want to be laterally compatible with standard ​
 +ircII. ​ Note that the client'​s idle time is different than the server'​s ​
 +idle time, which is typically measured in the number of seconds since you 
 +last sent a PRIVMSG to somebody.
 +
 +======History:​======
 +This function first appeared in ircII-2.8.7
 +
 +======Returns:​======
 +The number of seconds since your last keypress.
