IRC has built in /commands that allow
you to do certain things like change your nickname, locate someone online,
clear the text from your screen and many, MANY
other things. Below are some basic commands:
This command searches a directory
for a file or filemask including any subdirectories below the path specified.
You may direct text to a particular window using the > windowname parameters.
If a particular window with the supplied name can not be found, the text
will be displayed in the server/status window.
F : Stop search
after first found match
Q : Quiet mode, only reports
S : Do not search
