Conference-approved July 25, 2012 Our group does not speak for all of S.
If the message contains a valid command, as described in later sections, the client should expect a reply as specified but it is not advised to wait forever for the reply; client to server and server to server communication is essentially asynchronous by nature.
Each IRC message may consist of up to three main parts: an optional prefix, the command, and upto 15 command parameters.
The prefix, command, and all parameters are separated by one ASCII space character (0x20) each.
IRC has been designed over a number of years for use with text based conferencing.
The IRC protocol has been developed on systems using the TCP/IP network protocol, although there is no requirement that this remain the only sphere in which it operates.
If you would like local meeting information for your country, state or province, please contact S. That refusal is a good thing, and we agree with it. AA is a program of recovery from alcoholism only, use of the Twelve Steps and the Twelve Traditions in connection with programs and activities which are patterned after AA, but which address other problems, does not imply otherwise.
