Irc is a multi-user, multi-channel chatting network. It allows
people all over the internet to talk to one another in real-time.
Each irc user has a nickname they use. All communication with
another user is either by nickname or by the channel that they or
you are on. All ScrollZ commands begin with a / character.
Anything that does not begin with a / is assumed to be a message
that is sent to everyone on your channel. Here is a list of
basic commands to help you get started:

/LIST Lists all current irc channels, number of
users, and topic.
/NAMES Shows the nicknames of all users on each
/JOIN <channel> Join the named channel. All non-commands
you type will now go to everyone on that
/MSG <nick> <msg> Sends a private message to the specified
person. Only the specified nickname will
see this message.
/NICK Change your nickname
/QUIT Exits irc.
/HELP <topic> Gets help on all ScrollZ commands.
/WHO <channel> Shows who is on a given channel,
including nickname, user name and host,
and realname.
/WHOIS <nick> Shows the "true" indentity of someone

These commands should get you started on irc. Use the /HELP
command to find out more about things on irc, or ask question of
people... most would be happy to help you out.
