 +======Synopsis:​======
 +__oper__ [<​nick>​ [<​password>​]]
 +
 +======Description:​======
 +The __OPER__ command is used to gain irc operator status on the current
 +server, with the stipulation that the specified (or current) nickname
 +and password match an O: line entry in the server'​s configuration.
 +If a password is not specified, the client will prompt for one.
 +
 +======Restrictions:​======
 +Unlike [[DEOP]], the [[MODE]] command cannot be used to gain operator status.
 +
 +======Other Notes:​======
 +Specifying the password on the input line is not recommended,​ for many
 +reasons, the most obvious being that anyone with a line of sight to your
 +monitor can see what your password is.  When the client prompts for a
 +password, it does not display it as it is typed. ​ Further, the client'​s
 +command history may be written to a file, which would compromise the
 +password if the history file is world-readable.
