Just read rfcs about IRC (1459,2812). So, there is beautiful command to
get presence from IRC network (IRC clients use it to create notify list).
Let's our nick is user0; user1 and user3 is online, user2 and user4 is
So, we send to IRC server:
ISON user1 user2 user3 user4
and got answer:
:irc.domain.ru 303 user0 :user1 user3
In jabber we see users like user1!irc.domain.ru at mod_irc.ejabber.domain
and if we poll userlist approx every 1-3 min we can see status of IRC users.
Some IRC servers also support command WATCH. In this case they send word
WATCH in compatibility list (005 answer, like "WATCH=128")
Information avaible on
This is better way to get status, cause server sent 600 series replies
itself instead of client polls (traffic safer).
What do you think about?
