Technical:

chanwin and winchan are the same function.

  • If no argument given:
    • Return the current window's current channel.
  • If one argument, and it's a window refnum:
    • Return that window's current channel.
  • If one argument, and it's a channel:
    • Return the window that the channel belongs to.
  • If two arguments, first one is channel, second one is server:
    • Return the window FOR THAT SERVER that the channel belongs to.

Examples:
