MemoServ is a utility allowing IRC users to send short messages to other
IRC users, whether they are online at the time or not, or to Chat rooms(*).
Both the sender's nickname and the target nickname or channel must be
registered in order to send a memo.
- Send - Send a memo to a nick or channel
- List - List your memos
- Read - Read a memo or memos
- Del - Delete a memo or memos
- Set Notify - Changes when you will be notified about new memos
- Set Limit - Sets the maximum number of memos you can receive
- Info - Displays information on the number of memos you have
Syntax: /msg memoserv send nickname memo
Sends the named nick or channel a memo containing memo-text. When sending
to a nickname, the recipient will receive a notice that he/she has a new
memo. The target nickname/channel must be registered.
Syntax: /msg memoserv list or /msg memoserv list new
Lists any memos you currently have. With NEW, lists only new (unread)
memos. Unread memos are marked with a "*" to the left of the memo number.
You can also specify a list of numbers, as in the example below:
LIST 2-5, 7-9 Lists memos numbered 2 through 5 and 7 through 9.
Syntax: /msg memoserv read number (or read list, last or new)
Sends you the text of the memos specified. If LAST is given, sends you the
memo you most recently received. If NEW is given, sends you all of your new
memos. Otherwise, sends you memo number num. You can also give a list of
numbers, as in this example:
READ 2-5, 7-9 Displays memos numbered 2 through 5 and 7 through 9.
Syntax: /msg memoserv del number (or list, all)
Deletes the specified memo or memos. You can supply multiple memo numbers
or ranges of numbers instead of a single number, as in the second example
If ALL is given, deletes all of your memos.
Syntax: /msg memoserv set notify on (or off, logon or new)
Changes when you will be notified about new memos:
On: You will be notified of memos when you log on, when you unset /AWAY, and
when they are sent to you.
Logon: You will only be notified of memos when you log on or and when you unset /AWAY.
New: You will only be notified of memos when they are sent to you.
Off: You will not receive any notification of memos.
On is essentially LOGON and NEW combined.
Syntax: /msg memoserv set limit number
Sets the maximum number of memos you (or the given channel) are allowed to
have. If you set this to 0, no one will be able to send any memos to you.
However, you cannot set this any higher than 20.
Syntax: /msg memoserv info
Displays information on the number of memos you have, how many of them are
unread, and how many total memos you can receive. With a parameter,
displays the same information for the given channel.
